While it might struggle with more complicated tasks, the solid build quality of the Acer Aspire One 721, plus its thin and light design and low price, make this a good choice as a basic study and work laptop. If you're after a more powerful machine for handling more complicated tasks, then the Lenovo G560 is the better choice.

Acer Aspire One 721 review
Source: Liliputing English
The Acer Aspire One 721 isn't the fastest 11.6 inch laptop I've tested. It doesn't have the best graphics performance. And it doesn't have the longest battery life. But it's among the best performing laptops I've tested in its class, which is saying a lot since this machine is so much cheaper than the competition.

As is often the case with products that seem to bridge gaps between existing product lines, the AO721's biggest weakness is that it doesn't quite know what it wants to be. There are manufacturers, after all, who market similarly sized 11.6-inch systems as ultraportable notebooks rather than netbooks. In fact, Acer sells several. So where exactly is the line drawn?

Acer Aspire One 521 and 721 review
Source: Engadget English
Though, if we had to choose we'd go with the 721 -- for $80 more than the 521 you get more than just a secondary machine with its wider screen and keyboard. Of course, if you consistently demand more than four hours of battery life you'll want to go with an Intel ULV laptop, but most of them cost north of $700. And well, that's exactly what AMD's going for -- Acer now has two incredibly affordable and portable laptops that pack more performance than most netbooks and budget ultraportables on the market.

Comment

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.


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


1.4 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.
