Reviews for the Acer Aspire One 521-3530
Source: Comp Reviews
Acer's Aspire One 521 is definitely shaking up the netbook market by offering a significant boost in performance both for general applications and graphics. This netbook is fully capable of HD video playback and is a step up from the average Intel Atom based model. Battery life is better than past AMD netbooks but still falls short of the class leading Atom netbooks.

ATI Radeon HD 4225: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) that is able to decode HD videos (thanks to the UVD2). Technically a slower clocked HD 4250.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
K125: Slow entry level single core CPU for small and light laptops. Still faster as 1.6 Ghz Atom based systems.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
