Reviews for the Acer Aspire One 751

Netbooks are busting out of the 10in screen restriction, with the Acer Aspire One 751 a good affordable example of the type. The stretched display not only offers more screen space, helped by the high 1366x768 resolution, but allows for a normal-sized keyboard which makes typing that much easier. In spite of using the slowest Intel Atom available, the Acer Aspire One 751 did not seem much slower than any other netbook. If lightness and screen size are more important to you than battery life, take a closer look at Acer’s biggest-screen Aspire One 751.

Price tag on our model was around 370€, which is not modest especially for a netbook. Since slightly faster Acer Aspire D150 can be purchased for 70€ less, all comes to one question: Do you need larger display and keyboard? On the other side, when compared to MSI X-Slim X320, Acer Aspire One 751 isn’t that much expansive any more, isn’t it. Since there are just few netbooks with resolution larger than 1024x600, Acer Aspire One 751 comes as natural choice for all users that seek comfortable working experience combined with exceptional portability and autonomy.

78% Acer Aspire ONE 751H
Source: PC World English
Used to be, people were content with a 10.1-inch screen on netbooks. The Acer Aspire One AO751h is a newcomer that goes bigger--to 11.6 inches. While that seems like the sweet-spot screen size for a portable PC (whether netbook or ultraportable), some design missteps with this model lead Acer astray. It's a shame. The AO751 potentially has so much right, but a few key bungles keep me from throwing my weight behind Acer's big-boned netbook. Maybe a deluxe model with a better CPU or a discrete GPU? Maybe less preinstalled gunk to clean out? Whatever the case, as shipped today, this model is tough to recommend.

60% Acer Aspire One AO751h Review – 11.6″ HD Netbook
Source: Slashgear English
If your expectations of an 11.6-inch netbook are a device solely for browsing, email and MP3 playback then the AO751’s 5+ hours run-time may tick your boxes, especially if you can find it significantly cheaper than the $399.99 MRSP online and if you do plenty of text entry. That to us screams of a niche too far, however, and we’d rather spend a little more for a stronger processor that can do the screen justice. To make no small amount of noise about the high-definition resolution of your display and then package it with a processor that can’t keep up its side of the bargain smacks of marketing cynicism. The AO751h-1522 certainly puts in a better showing than the earlier versions, but it’s still far from our first choice of budget ultraportable.

Acer's Aspire One 751h is a compromise in features among netbooks that some may like and others could hate. It uses a larger, higher resolution display that gives it a much better working environment. This also gives it a larger keyboard that is surprisingly pleasant to use over long period. The downside is the slower Z series Atom processor that makes the already slow netbook experience even slower. At least it is able to provide long running times with the lower wattage processor and has a very attractive price point.

With companies such as Asus, Acer, MSI and a couple more bombarding the market with these portable yet affordable machines, it goes beyond doubt that netbooks are here to stay.

All in all the Acer 715H is a great laptop alternative with its wide 11.6-inch screen and full sized keyboard. But that’s only applicable if you are ready to sacrifice performance over portability. The Acer 751H won’t break any records in performance but will definitely win hearts with its stunning 11.6-inch screen and amazing battery life.

Do good things really come in small packages? The Acer Aspire One is a prime example of the new breed of netbook. It's an attractive looking machine, and is available in four different colours. Although it falls short of some of its bolder claims, the Acer Aspire One is still a very good computer, especially if you are going to use it for working whilst on the road.

Netbooks were once touted as small and cheap alternatives to laptops. But, with models like the Acer Aspire One 751, sporting a large 11.6-inch screen, appearing on the scene, it's difficult to know where the boundary between a laptop and a netbook now lies. This is especially the case since, priced at around £380, the 751 isn't that far off the asking price of most low-end laptops. We really love the Acer Aspire One 751's slim frame, amazing screen and spacious keyboard, so we find it incredibly frustrating that Acer didn't kit it out with a faster processor. It's still a very neat netbook, but, with a speedier processor, it could have been one of the best on the market.

The definition of a Netbook keeps getting fuzzier around the edges, with displays growing from the original 7-inch designs, and the selection of CPUs expanding to include Intel, AMD, and Via. If we are to take 12-inch systems such as the HP dv2 and Samsung NC20 as Netbooks (we've so far let them slip in under the wire), than an 11.6-inch model is a sure thing. Acer's 11.6-inch Aspire One AO751h might usher in a new standard for Netbook sizes, but the slower-than-usual processor can lead to frustration.

Call me a notebook geek, but I can't help but get excited anytime a netbook advertises a full-size keyboard and screen specifications other than 10 inches and 1,024-by-600 resolution. The Acer Aspire One (A0751h) was full of promise when it was announced back in early April 2009 as it featured the biggest netbook keyboard to date and the first-ever 11.6-inch widescreen. Battery life, conducted with MobileMark 2007 tests, delivered a superb 7 hours, 15 minutes. For $350, with a unique widescreen and full-size keyboard, we can ignore the Acer Aspire One (A0751h)'s slow Atom processor and the crappy mouse buttons.

The appeal of the new Aspire One 751h is not so much what this netbook adds to Acer's netbook line, although we do like its roomy 11.6-inch screen and new slim design. Rather, the most significant update is what it does away with. Gone is the trademark cramped Aspire One 89-percent-wide keyboard, replaced by a full-width model that's a pleasure to type on. The Aspire One 751h has one of the better screen-and-keyboard combos we've seen on a netbook, but its performance disappoints.

Acer’s first 11-inch netbook offers a bigger screen than the competition and long battery life, but its processor is somewhat slow. If you’re craving a little more screen real estate than the average netbook, along with a high-res display, the $379 Acer Aspire One AO751h combines several compelling features, such as seven hours of battery life and an exceptionally slim 1-inch thick shape. But if all you want is a netbook—and not necessarily an 11-inch one—there are several comparably priced (albeit, thicker) 10-inch models, such as the $399 Toshiba NB205 and the $389 ASUS 1005HA, which run faster and last even longer.

The new Acer Aspire One 751 has a screen that measures 11.6in on the diagonal with a resolution of 1366 x 768 and that’s mighty big for a netbook. As it happens, we were told a few months back that Intel has strict rules about the sale of Atom N-series processors to avoid cannibalising the sales of Core 2 and Centrino products. The large - for a netbook - 11.6in screen on the Aspire One 751 takes these little laptops in an interesting direction. However, the price is getting uncomfortably close to the point where you can buy a proper laptop with a proper CPU

When we come to summing-up our feelings about the 751 it is difficult. We want to love it: it looks great out and about, but has so many issues, it is a nightmare to live with. Yes, the increased screen size is welcomed, but there isn't the performance boost to support it, so it still stumbles through HD content. Sure there could be the opportunity to boost the RAM, but it needs to be remembered that this is still a humble netbook. Overall it's slightly disappointing then, as we had high hopes for the 751. It looks stunning, but the performance isn't compelling enough to make us part with our cash. The crown for the king of the 11.6-inchers is still available.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 500: Integrated (onboard) graphics chip on the UL11L, US15L, and US15W chipsets with a licensed PowerVR SGX core. DirectX 10.1 support but because of low clock rates (100-200 MHz UL11L - US15) and only 4 shaders not suited for 3D games. The integrated video decoder accelerates the playback of HD videos (MPEG2, VC-1, AVC).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Z520:

Power efficient single core CPU with a very low performance. Offers more features (power saving, VT-x) than the N series Atoms.

1.25 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.


Acer: Acer Incorporated is a Taiwanese multinational electronics manufacturer. Its product lineup includes desktops and laptops, as well as personal digital assistants (PDAs), servers and storage, displays, peripherals, and e-business services for business, government, education, and home users. Acer is the third largest computer manufacturer in the world (by sales) after HP and Dell Inc (2007). The company owns the largest franchised computer retail chain in Taipei, Taiwan. Originally named Multitech, it was founded in 1976. Gateway and Packard Bell are economically connected with Acer. Market share regarding sales of personal computers in 2007 (market research IDC): HP 18.9 %, Dell 16.4 %, Acer 9.9 %, Lenovo 7.5 %, Apple 5.7 %
