Had my acer 751 about six weeks find it works great, wanted it to keep my photos on and to go on the web when wife has taken over the desk top computer you do get use to the smaller screen 11.6in and you can plug into a ex monitor, battery lasts about two hours with the three cell battery there is no cd dvd drive but that is not a problem it has three usb ports I use a flash drive to download onto it or buy a ex cd dvd drive its very light to carry about with a good bright screen geoffcooll
This netbook is ideal for any serious web-surfer with the perfect size and features, however it cannot handle serious gaming but they were not designed for that anyway. The battery life is "Ok" I say this as it can manage maybe 2 hours max. I had no problem upgrading to Windows 7 and this little lappy handles it well. Overall If you are at College or University, for this price, you can't go wrong.
