Slow processor speed
Poorly designed mouse button
A minimalistic design is what one comes across with the Acer Aspire One A0751h. But this netbook runs on the slower Intel Atom Z520 processor just like the ASUS 1101HA. The Acer A0751h sports an 11.6-inch screen which has a resolution of 1366 x 768.
The glossy black front lid opens up to reveal a metal grey body which has a very roomy keyboard with flat top keys. They keys are well spaced from each other and give a very smooth typing experience. The mouse trackpad is small with a single click button. An interesting aspect of the track pad is that it allows the user to zoom in and out, scroll pages vertically and horizontally by specific finger variations. For instance a pinching gesture will zoom in or zoom out a picture, if you drag your finger from the upper right hand corner of the trackpad to the middle, making a circular motion, then the vertical scroll bar is activated. These features add a bit of versatility to the otherwise simple mouse trackpad.
There are very few ports on this netbook. It has a total of three USB ports, two audio ports, one VGA port and a LAN port along with an SD/MMC/xD/Pro card slot on the right hand side. There are a group of status indicators on the bottom left hand side of the body of the netbook and three more beside the power button on the upper right hand corner.
Due to the Z520 processor, the netbook is not as fast as its N-series counterpart. In the real-world tests it performed painfully slowly. It took in excess of four minutes in our data transfer benchmark tests. Also converting a VOB to DivX file took over five minutes. It has a great battery life of over six hours, which is ideal for basic applications. At Rs 20,571, this netbook is a very decent buy.
