Looking for a netbook with some extra power? The Acer Aspire One 722 has gotten a processor bump from the AMD C50 to the dual core AMD C60.  Is it a significant bump? It sure is since its going from a dual core processor from a single core.  The chassis and the case it self hasn’t changed and when we reviewed the 722 with the C50 CPU we already named it best budget 11.6″ Netbook.

You can pick up the Acer 722 from Amazon for $298 and we think it’s a steal! If you don’t want to read our full review I’ve put our conclusion below:


If you’re after a netbook that has a slightly bigger screen then the 11.6″ Ultra portable Acer Aspire One 722 is a decent option for anyone on a budget.  Everything works and the build quality is decent, the plastic doesn’t feel cheap even though the lid is a finger print magnet. If you’re after a device that is great for watching a couple of movie, email, facebook and its keyboard and decent screen size will allow you to comfortably write for hours at a time. Plus you can’t beat the price, on Amazon right now its $292!

    i bought this laptop a week ago after looking at length, i was looking at net-books with the new atom cedar trail n2600 and n2800 processors 1.6ghz and 1.9 ghz respectively but they only have 1gb of ram which was too little for me and a lot of them are not upgrade able, i looked at the acer 722 as it had 2gb ram (upgradeable) to 4gb but was a bit worried about the lower powered c60 dual core processor rated at 1.0ghz as opposed to the intel chips, although there is supposed to be a turbo core mode with boosts to 1.3 ghz yet i havent experienced this yet. i did a windows base score test at the shop on the acer one aspire 10.1″ netbook and the acer one aspire 722 11.6″ and they both came back with 3.3 on processor rating so i decided to go with the acer 722. the only problem ive had with it is streaming hd content from iplayer it works but kind of lags yet some hd videos on youtube stream fine, it is not my connection as i am on 25meg broadband. i bought it because it had a slightly bigger screen but not too big, 2gb ram as opposed to 1gb on all the other netbooks i saw , bear in mind that when windows 7 os, anti virus is running and other stuff you have installed on there a lot of ram is being used just at idle. i only have avast running at start up , comodo firewall, touchpad and power management and my ram meter says that it is using 60% of the available ram. the antivirus is essential to be running and also the firewall so imagine how much this would slow down a machine with only 1gb of ram when you try to run more applications

    bottom line : i would defiantly recommend this netbook it all seems to work fine , well packed in box, good for, watching youtube, web browsing , battery (seems to last about 7 hours), watching films, word processing, watching tv through a usb tv stick, that is has dedicated memory for graphics rather than on board gpu on chip. this also comes with windows home premium edition rather than starter edition which was on all the other netbooks that i looked at , windows starter lacks a lot of windows functions

    wouldnt buy for video editing, gaming, high system requirement games or as a main computer

    hope this helps anyone debating whether to buy one
