Reviews for the Acer Aspire One 722-BZ480
Source: PC Mag
The Acer Aspire One 722-BZ480 is a solid netbook for the traveling PC user on a tight budget. Its $329 price point is alluring, and its AMD APU will help it make easy work of online media. If you have another $250 to spend and want more processing and graphics power, you may want to consider the IdeaPad S205 instead; its higher-level APU delivers more punch in both areas. For a more digestible $120 difference, the dm1z gives you even faster parts for the price, 1GB more RAM, a better typing experience, and a faster 7,200rpm hard drive.
