    Re: Acer Aspire One - £199inc eee 901 killer

    I would check out the comparitive reviews, as I think the Acer's keyboard & battery may not be so hot. Very quick boot time though.

    I'm dissapointed with Dell I thought they would come out with something more agressive, price or spec wise.

    I think the EEE901 battery is probably the best out of all the 8.9" Subnotebooks. I would also go for an XP one just cos my main PC is Vista and it doesn't want to network with my Linux machine, if you have a little SSD or HDD you would defo want easy home networking, I have an LCD in the bedroom and it would be real nice to connect the notebook to it and play movies directly off my PC harddrive downstairs.

    A different review said the fan was "thankfully quiet", so not sure if its an issue really. Battery life does seem to be the real hindrance though, with it running out after 2-3 hours apparently. Suppose i could get another battery though if its a real problem. I quite like the ability to just put in an SD card and double the storage capacity though, sounds pretty useful.

    it is a nice feature but one all popular netbooks share

    Noise is the one category where the Aspire One stands out, and not in a good way. Almost as soon as the netbook is turned on the cooling fans starts at a low droning speed. It barely moves any air out of the device, but it is louder than fans found in full-size notebooks. As the One warms up and needs more cooling the fan speed increases to a very annoying level. It stands out in a busy office setting and in a quiet classroom would get even the teachers attention.

    I trust their reviews more than any others when it comes to notebooks.

    Re: Acer Aspire One - £199inc eee 901 killer

    Take a note that the recent Eee PC 701s are coming with a smaller battery now. They're not the same as the original ones.

    I've got an Eee PC and Aspire One next to me (we'd have just bought Aspire Ones had we all ordered them recently) which I'll be playing with over the weekend. The Aspire One's definitely got a better feel to it, though it is a bit bigger. I find the keyboard usable though, whereas on the Eee PC it's just cramped enough to make typing a chore. That'll be down to how big your fingers are though.
