Reviews for the Acer Aspire One 756-2623

Review: Acer Aspire One 756 with the Celeron 877 [Video]
Source: Netbooknews.com English
The two major downfalls of this unit are the glossy lid and display (which you could fix with a cool sticker and foil), the small arrow keys which combine volume and screen brightness and the terrible speakers. All in all we strongly recommend this device for purchase!

Comment

Model:

The netbook category hasn’t been doing very well since the debut of the ultrabooks and tablets. However, several manufacturers still produce these kind of notebooks. Acer has decided to categorize the Aspire One 756 under the subnotebook category instead of directly marketing it as a netbook.

Similar to many other netbooks, it has a not so solid structure. The entire chassis is bendable. The glossy lid is also pretty much the norm for all netbooks and is a real smudge magnet. Though the dark-glossy display limits visibility, the wide opening angles manages to compensate for outdoor usage. Like many other netbooks, it has a low voltage processor and enough performance for anything less than regular usage. However, the performance can be increased by choosing the premium model which comes with a Pentium 987 dual-core processor. The keyboard and touchpad without buttons (clickpad) are quite disappointing but they aren't any worse than its main rivals', the Asus Eee PC Flare series and the HP Mini.

The Aspire One 756 then is a typical netbook. It lacks available ports, performance and display quality. However this model is even worse as it can’t even churn out a good battery life.

Intel HD Graphics 2000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The 2000  is the slower, internally GT1 called, version with 6 Execution Units (EUs).

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

877: Ultra Low Voltage dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. Due to the Celeron brand, many features of the Sandy Bridge core are deactivated.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.

1.4 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.
