Reviews for the Acer Aspire One Happy 2

70% The Acer Aspire One Happy 2 review
Source: PC Advisor English
The Acer Aspire One Happy 2 sells for around £229 and for that price range you get a decent netbook that is well built, sports an attractive design, and provides a standard performance. Additionally it offers users the choice of booting with Microsoft Windows 7 Starter edition or, for quicker access to functionality such as web browsing, Android 2.3.1.

75% Acer Aspire One Happy 2 Netbook Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Acer Aspire One Happy 2 is available in India at a market price of Rs. 15,739. This is a really good netbook and we were hard pressed to find any real flaws with it. Though the dual-boot feature is not heavily marketed, we found it to be this netbook’s biggest advantage. The battery can last almost as long as most tablets in the market and better than most laptops out there. If you’re in the market for a netbook for yourself or as a gift this Diwali, the Happy 2 would be a great choice.

80% Review: Acer Aspire One Happy 2

The Acer One Happy 2 is one stylish device that's easy on the eyes. Its performance is quite good, and the product is not expensive either. On the other hand, it didn't do too well in our battery tests. However, as mentioned earlier, the device's relatively brighter screen could be the reason behind this. At a price tag of Rs 15,800, this well-built laptop is a good companion for college-goers, and it won't look odd in offices either. Thanks to these cute devices, girls will no longer have to stick with expensive laptops made by Sony. Moreover, guys need not shy away from the Blueberry-coloured one.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration).

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

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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).


N570: Dual core Atom processor with a slightly higher clock rate than the Atom N550 and therefore still slower than the CULV processors.» 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.


1.3 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.
