Summary I was an owned of the previous Acer Aspire ONE Series AOD250 (ZG8) with an Intel ATOM CPU. That netbook was great. I sold it and I bought the one as a replacement. I have to say I was disappointed when I got it. The 722 was far slower. I decided to make a format and make a fresh installation of Windows 7 x86 Ultimate edition. Unfortunately I was not able to install Windows XP in order to compare it with its predecessor, because ACER decided not to publish drivers for the 722. Anyway, after the installation I noticed a major boost in performance. ACER has loaded so much crap in to the system that it makes it cripple. I will try to install Windows XP again and find the drivers directly from the manufacturers. The main issue of this netbook is performance, all the others a minor issues. Battery is exactly the same with my previous 6-cell 250, is holds for about 4 to 5 hours. I read that this netbook has 7 hours (it is a lie), I guess you have to turn everything off and have the netbook on screensaver in order to achieve that. I did not also like that the netbook did not have HDD Led light (to check if the hard drive is reading/writing) also lacks of CAPS lock led and Wi-Fi manual switch. They have integrated all that into software in order to make it cheaper in production. I have to say it looks cheaper also. I also do not like the casing, finger-print magnet. Overall I got this for the price, but expected MORE compared to my previous Acer Aspire ONE.UPDATE: The speakers are not weak! Please ignore this remark! Performance gets better if you fresh install Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit & upgrade to 4GB of RAM. You can get fast boot times (lower than 60 seconds). This netbook is great I highly recommend it. I replaced it with an ASUS 1215b and now I regret it.

Pros This is a very fast computer with a fast boot-up time. The battery life is incredible and the storage capacity is really nice.
Cons The keyboard is fine, but I find i miss striking the "ENTER" key at times - it is placed a little too far to the right, and a little high.
Summary I bought this computer seeking a net-book as I couldn't decide between an iPad and a Playbook. I had decided to buy a mobile web-capable device, but didn't want to spend $600. This computer has blown me away, I love it. I didn't think storage and speed were too important, as I was going to use it as a browser primarily. The speed and storage has been really noticeable and useful. (I do download some movies and music, and having so much storage has been useful as I wait to transfer files to my external hard-drive.) The battery life is incredible. I do like the feel of the keyboard but note that the "ENTER" key is awkwardly placed, I imagine in time this will improve. In short, for $200 less than a Playbook and/or iPad I have a REAL computer with a REAL keyboard. I highly recommend this computer.
Pros Preloaded with full Windows 7. Full Keyboard. Packs a whallop in a small box. 11 inches just right for 50 year old eyes... I have a Ipad II but wanted a Windows based laptop but didn't want it to be too big or heavy. I take a lot of videos and pictur
Cons Takes a while to boot, but still faster than my old dell inspirion... Plastic feel to keyboard, but if this came out 10 years ago, it would of been priced over 2 - 3K. My dell laptop was over 3K in 2003 and didn't even have a camera... Got this at BJ'
Summary Powerful little totable 'netbook' with fully loaded Windows 7 and lots of memory/RAM drive etc... Boots a little slow and battery life could be better but so far has not been an issue. Less than 10 years ago, this little ultra would of been the standard that all others would of been trying to reach. I could of bought three of these for what I paid for my first Ipad II with 64GB and 3G... turned it in for the 16 GB, and still could of bought two of these and had $100 left over after 4 year warranty and taxes... Apple, althought moderately priced is a pocket book killer. I have a MacBook Air, first version as well, but needed a Windows Based computer for work and travel... so many healthcare medical, financial, and work related programs are still windows based... it's difficult to be purely Mac only capable... My bank doesn't even support safari... or any MAC iOS, etc...
