Reviews for the Acer Aspire One 725

84% Review Acer Aspire One 725 Notebook | Notebookcheck
One more time. The Acer Aspire One netbook series has a new entry, the Aspire One 725. This new netbook features an AMD C-60 CPU, integrated AMD Radeon HD 6290 graphics card, and an HD display. Are these features enough incentive to buy this 11.6-inch netbook? Has Acer learned from the series’ previous mistakes?
75% Review: Acer Aspire One 725 — A Decent Netbook, But Only Just
Source: Techtree.com English
If you want a netbook primarily for internet access or an office suite, the Acer Aspire One 725 is a decent performer. The relatively large display with more pixels is easy on the eyes. The unit runs cool, it is silent even when stress-tasked, it's easy to carry around, and it's built well. But if you look beyond these basic positives, you'll be disappointed.

AMD Radeon HD 6290:

Integrated graphics card in some Ontario netbook processors (e.g. C-60) featuring an UVD3 video decoder and no dedicated memory. Compared to the HD 6250, the 6290 features Turbo Core to overclock automatically to 400MHz.

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-60:

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.

11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

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.

1.2 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.


79.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
