We have already seen a lacklustre review for the Acer Aspire One 751, but that didn’t stop Riccardo from NetbookNews.it wanting to test the 751 himself. He has posted a video of his first impressions along with the full unboxing.
The Aspire One 751 is a model we were quite interested in, mainly due to its stylish and slender design along with an 11.6-inch high-resolution display. Initial impressions seem to be positive, with an attractive, thin and lightweight design that rivals some 10-inch netbooks. The full-sized keyboard is comfortable. The 751 comes with a glossy display that is very reflective but isn’t too much of an issue given the high brightness levels of the screen.
The main criticisms seem to be the fingerprint smudges on the glossy lid and slight keyboard flex. Also, for some reason, the 6-cell battery was rated at 4400mAh, whilst the manual indicates it should be 5200mAh. A full review is expected in the next few days in the meantime check out the video after the break.
The particular model that was tested was the Aspire One 751h-52Bk. The 751 has a high resolution 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) display and is powered by a 1.3GHz Z520 CPU, 1GB RAM and a 160GB HDD. Other features include Wi-Fi (b/g), Bluetooth, three USB ports, card reader and 0.3MP webcam.
