The design of the net book is very bold and beautiful. The overall colour scheme is black and has a glossy feel to it. The netbook is very small and compact. This ensures ease of carrying it around. It is very slim too. The keyboard is beautifully designed with keys placed to ensure efficient typing. There is a track pad which is relatively very easy to use and is very sensitive. It supports gesture controls like pinch zooming. The bottom portion is removable so that you can access the hard disk and RAM without much effort.
Acer Aspire one 722 Netbook’s speakers are kept at the bottom. This is a small drawback since the sound will be distorted if we use the device keeping it in lap. Compared to other Netbooks the finish of this device is amazingly good and the device seems very much durable.
The 11.6 inch screen is of LED back lit type. It has very good resolution and is much better than many Netbooks of the same segment. Its is also sufficiently bright so there wont be any problem using it outside. The processing unit in the gadget is AMD C-50 which packs in a clock speed of 1GHz. There have been reviews that the clock speed could have been a bit faster. Because of the small clock speed there can be a bit lag while opening and closing applications but other than that the device works incredibly well. 2 GB’s of system memory would ensure that no delay would occur during the execution of the program.
The hard disk capacity is also impressive and very much sufficient at 320GB.The netbook comes bundled with a general amount of software’s like MS office and McAfee antivirus.
Acer Aspire one 722 Netbook has a price tag in the range of Rs 20,000 in India and above.
