Reviews for the Acer Aspire One 522-C5Dkk

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.

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":

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.17 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


72.27%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
