Reviews for the Acer Aspire One 756-2623
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!

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).

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
