Bought an Acer Netbook

Howdy people! 🙂 I know it has been a long time since I wrote. But *sigh* it’s again the same reason. EXAMS. They are finally just 2 weeks away now and I’m still acting up as if I’m on vacation.

And another thing, I don’t just use this blog to write about whatever purchases I make. Once I get over with my exams, I’ll definitely update it regularly 🙂

Yes, I have made another purchase after the PlayStation 3. This time it’s a netbook. What’s a netbook? (actually many people asked me this question or mixed it with a notebook) A netbook is a stripped down version of a notebook with less features and for simple use only. It’s also called a mini-laptop or sub-notebook.

I have bought an Acer Aspire One AOA110. It’s basically for students who need laptops at universities/work. But nope, this isn’t for my college! I will be traveling for three months (vacations baby! yahoo!) after exams, so I’ll have this as my travel mate. It has all the features I need on the go. An Atom 1.6GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB SSD, WLAN, LAN, 3 USB ports, webcam, mic etc.


The only thing you might find awkward about it is that it doesnt have a CD-ROM, which I really don’t care about. I have already jammed two DVD combos which I have on my PC for not using them. I seriously don’t need a CD-ROM. And not having a proper hard disk was also one of the objections I had, 16GB SSD is nothing when compared to my wild usage. I remember filling up 16GB of Nokia N96 in just two days! And my (almost) 1TB storage in my desktop is also 90% full.

Solid State Discs are known for having slow writes times, but have fast reading times. Because of this, Windows XP lagged a lot. But thanks to the developer of FlashPoint, my netbook is now on super-charged speed as if it’s being given RedBull to drink every minute! I don’t get even a single lag now. Using Windows Live Messenger, Skype, Windows Media Player and Google Chrome/Opera altogether was like a dream on this netbook. But now, it’s all possible without even a single glitch!

I’ve installed all the necessary apps I neeed for daily use and it is now my ultimate travel mate. I can easily connect to the internet with my Nokia N96 and GPRS. Now I just can’t wait for my exams to get over and go on holidays with my netbook.

I have plans to visit Karachi in June, then fly off to Dubai in July and Singapore in August. But first, I have exams from 9th May that I have to worry about!

Wish me luck! 🙂
