I'm a big fan of the Acer Aspire One line, but recently, the screens have been really bad. They have some sort of pattern on them that makes them relatively sub-par screens. I saw some at the store today and verified that it wasn't my imagination that some Acer Aspire One machines have lousy screens when, in the past, they were relatively good screens.
No way with a 2600mAh battery and a desktop-class mobile processor gets 4 hours of battery doing anything other than sitting idle.
My 722 with a 4400mAh battery and a C-60 atom-class processor gets about 5-6 real-world.
Granted, it's about Watt-hr and not mAh, but I'll assume Acer is using the same battery voltage on the same laptop line.
I understand low wattage processor, but the 877 (well, it's little brother the 867) has a 17W TDP, the C-60 had a 9W TDP.
Something doesn't add up. Anything less than 4 hours is plain awful by today's standards, value laptop or not.
I'm looking to upgrade, but I'm not touching this with a 10 foot pole.
The thing is the power gating is so aggressive on sandy bridge that if you enable all of the powering saving features and lock it into the lowest speed 800mhz (still plenty fast for everything but netflix) it squeezes out 4 hours. I was getting about 3 hours on normal settings
I wonder if you can hackintosh this...
no it does not have hd3000 or hd4000 graphics

Yeah that's the only fly in the ointment it seems. But someone has it running without gfx acceleration, I wonder if it's that bad without... or if they will release a HD3000 version. Actually they do make one of those it's the AO756-4854.
