Acer Aspire One 756 Review

Acer is known for its strong presence in the sub-$350 (Approx. £225) category and the Aspire One 756 sub-notebook seems to solidify its position. However, instead of using AMD APU or Intel Atom processor, the 756 is powered by a low-voltage Pentium processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture.

This brings much better performance level compared to its competitors, including models powered by AMD E-450 APU and Intel Atom E-1800, which are about 50 percent slower. The 11.6” (1366 x 768) display is a standard panel at this for factor category. At 217cd/m2, its brightness level should suffice in most indoor situations, but not strong enough to prevent outdoor reflections.

It’s a common rule that it takes a minimum of 250 cd/m2 in brightness level and matte panel to ensure good outdoors visibility. The Seagate Momentus Thin 320GB 5400rpm HDD is the main storage unit. While it’s only 7mm thin, the mediocre 69MB per second transfer rate would make owners of SSD-powered laptops cringe.
