Best Netbook: Acer Aspire One AOD150 (RRP: $799)

The Acer Aspire One AOD150 is one of the best netbooks on the market, which makes it a perfect option for mobile stimulus spenders. It has a 160GB hard drive, a beautiful 10.2in screen, and despite its tiny size, a fully featured keyboard. It also sports an attractive design that’s not too flashy and not too dull.

The 160GB, 4200rpm hard drive will provide plenty of space for applications, photos, music and videos. The Aspire One AOD150 also comes with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of RAM and an integrated Intel GMA950 graphics card — not too shabby for a netbook. With an RRP of $799, there’ll be enough money left over for an extra battery for those long commutes.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
