85% Review Acer Aspire One 522 Netbook | Notebookcheck
AMD refresh. The Acer Aspire One 522 is the latest netbook from Taiwan and, at the same time, the opponent of the available D255 netbook with an Atom N550. The refresh contains the AMD C-50 APU including AMD Radeon HD 6250 graphics. Is this, together with a HD display, the perfect match?

It’s disappointing, as in most other ways the Aspire One 522 is ahead of the pack. The screen is a huge plus few netbooks can match, the processor and the graphics chip are as fast as netbooks currently offer, and the 250GB hard disk and port selection are fine for such a reasonable price. But that battery means we can only really recommend it in the unlikely event that you don’t intend to use your netbook on the move.

If it wasn't for the terrible battery life, the Acer Aspire One 522 would be a commendable entry in the netbook market. If you can live with that then we'd recommend it as a well-built, highly usable machine, but there's better to be had.

Acer Aspire One 522 netbook review
Source: Liliputing English
The netbook’s keyboard and touchpad are also not the best I’ve ever used — so if you really want a device with a higher resolution screen and a full sized keyboard, you may want to consider a notebook with an 11.6 inch display. But in my opinion, you’ll be hard pressed to get more bang for your buck out of any 10 inch model than the Aspire One 522 right now.

Acer Aspire One 522 (AMD C-50) Unboxing & Live Review by Chippy
Source: Netbooknews.com English
So far he’s expressed concern over what I consider typical Acer build quality such as the unreliable track pad (I’ve actually for the same problems with the Happy, which is essentially the same chassis). But its cheap, real cheap at €299, so you have to forgive it its idiosyncrasies since you really didn’t pay for excellence.

The Acer Aspire One 522 is a 10.1 inch netbook with a 1280x720 pixel panel and an AMD Brazos Ontario APU (processor and graphics card together), the C-50. Although entirely in plastic, the Aspire One 522 has a sober and relatively elegant design. The Aspire 522 is far from being the highest performance netbook around. Nor is its low battery life in its favour.

The Acer 522 has some good things going for it like the HD screen, 1080p video playback, HDMI-out and great design and build quality. However, it runs unnecessarily warm, has an average battery life and worst of all, the APU is too weak to handle Windows 7 smoothly.

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.

Acer reviews


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

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.

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


AMD C-Series:

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.


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.


1.17 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.

1.3 kg:

This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


72.41%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
