My Acer Aspire One Netbook

Last week, I got my Acer Aspire One netbook in Blue Sapphire color with N270 processor. Atom processors are built for low-power consumption on portable devices. I was about to buy ASUS Eee PC with latest N280 processor but I dropped the idea of buying it because of it's 10 " screen size. I was looking for smaller screen size and this Acer Aspire One AOA150-1447 was unmatched. Asus is the only one to have latest N280 as a processor on it's netbook for now. Price factor wasn't a big deal, it was just $25 dollars more if I had pre-ordered but I'm so glad that I got my Acer Aspire One with such a nice screen size. Besides, it's extremely portable.


This is me, unboxing Acer Aspire One Netbook


The sound quality is not good enough right off it's speaker but with headphones, it's justified. I do lots of reading on this netbook, I do surf internet around the wifi spots and it's pretty cool to have it. So many people still don't know what are netbooks.

Having no-cd drive might be turn-off for some folks, but that's not a big issue. We can have things back and forth on the network.

The other thing to backup the entire OS, one has to make a bootable USB drive with it's image put onto it. I'll put it's video on how to do that, because, it's very important and they didn't include any recovery CD or something like that just in case if hard-drive itself went kaput. This netbook has Acer-recovery software installed which will turn back all the OS to it's factory default but only till when hard drive is working.

ACER is charging some $20+shipping for recovery CD.

Guys, you should have it's image put onto your USB to help yourself from any future trouble.

Other than that, this is a great netbook.

I was shocked to see a DVD player software when this thing has no CD/DVD drive to play. There are few crapwares like these inside, which I instantly removed.

If you are looking for very portable media player, ebook reader, small net-surfing companion, this is the thing to own.


Thank you for reading my post.

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
