Pocket-lint.co.uk has a quick review of Acer’s new ‘One’ ultraportable, giving it a so-so 6 out of 10. The reviewer cites cheap-feeling build quality, awkward track pad and mouse buttons, and frustrating operating system navigation as the main dings against the device.
On the bright side, the machine’s three cell battery is good for a little over two hours of battery life, which beats out the Eee 900, and you can increase the in-built 8GB of storage by adding a SD(HC) memory card. Interestingly, the memory card’s storage is added to the machine’s main memory, not as a separate storage device.
So there seem to be a few tradeoffs, but the expectation is that these Acer machines will be priced really aggressively, so it may be worth it for some people.
