Confused over which netbook to buy? Here we review two of the latest models from Acer and compare them against other similar models that fall within the same 18-20K price bracket.

Acer Aspire One 522

This netbook comes loaded with almost all the desired features expected of a netbook and some distinguishing ones too. First, it comes powered with an AMD dual core C-50 processor clocking at 1 GHz. This is a recently launched (January 2011) low voltage processor from AMD with TDP of 9W which is almost comparable to the dual core Intel Atom Pineview N5xx series (TDP: 8.5W). Second, the netbook has an HDMI port which is not a regular feature in netbooks. Third, the 10.1 inch LED screen comes with a resolution of 1280x720p resolution which is again the highest in the category.

Other features that keep it ahead of the curve include a 320 GB HDD, 2 GB DDR3 RAM, chiclet-island style keypad with soft and well-sized keys, multi-gesture touchpad, VGA out, and Bluetooth 3.0 and 3 USB 2.0 ports. All that is offered with only 1.4 Kg weight on your shoulders, making it an extremely mobile companion.
