Overall, the Aspire One 522-BZ892 seems perfect for no-frills netbook use - the type of portable you can easily toss into a handbag or backpack and pull out to browse the web, watch videos or make video calls. Its great battery life and modest price tag are huge assets, and if you like your netbooks small (and don't plan on doing huge amounts of typing or number crunching), the Aspire One 52-BZ892 is well worth a look.

Acer includes quite a bit of trialware and bloatware with this netbook, which is very disappointing. The office productivity suite that comes with the Acer Aspire One 522-BZ897 is Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Edition, which is a "light" version of the regular Office suite. There are also many different Acer-related utilities and tools and some of which are helpful, but some are not. There's also many games and completely left-field applications like the New York Times eReader software.

Compact and attractively priced, the Aspire One 522 delivers great battery life and multimedia performance, but doesn't have much raw computing power.

Comment

AMD Radeon HD 6250: Integrated graphics card in the Ontario netbook processors (e.g. C-50 and C-30) featuring an UVD3 video decoder and no dedicated memory.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


C-50: Dual Core low power processor with an integrated graphics cards. Due to the low clock speed, the CPU should be only as fast as a single core Atom CPU, but offers a faster integrated GPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
