The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Acer claims that the six-cell 5200mAh battery has a runtime of five hours, and we found that we could run a continuous loop of PCMark05 for two hours and 13 minutes. You can double that figure to get a real-world battery life figure so we’re happy that the Acer will run for four and a half hours with the screen at full brightness, pleasingly close to the figure supplied by Acer. Recharging the battery took one hour 30 minutes.

The trackpad's multi-touch

The list of ports and connectors takes advantage of the amount of space that is available with a card reader, one USB port and the VGA port on the right side while on the left side we have the Ethernet port, two USB, the power plug and jacks for a headset. In a neat touch, the VGA and LAN ports are located on the angled corners at the rear of the chassis.

Wireless connections consist of 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth which can be enabled and disabled by two flick switches on the front of the chassis. Our pre-production review sample had a SIM slot behind the battery for 3G, but this feature will not be immediately available as an option. The non-3G Aspire One 751 has a price of £380 so our best guess is that 3G will raise the price to a penny under £400.

Verdict

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. ®

Netbook displays too small, you think? The Acer 751's isn't, but its price and size are entering notebook territory. Shame the performance isn't.
