The Acer Aspire One 721 is an 11.6 inch thin and light notebook with a 1366 x 768 pixel display. Like the Acer Aspire One 521, which I reviewed recently, this model ships with a 1.7GHz AMD Athlon II Neo K125 processor and ATI Radeon HD 4225 graphics. The main difference is that the Aspire One 721 is larger — which provides room for a full sized keyboard and a higher resolution screen. I also suspect it will get less battery lfie, since the larger screen will use more power.
Acer sent me an Aspire One 721 to review, and you can check out my unboxing and first look video after the break.
All in all, I really like the design of this laptop. The matte lid looks like it should be pretty good and fighting off fingerprints, and the large access panel on the bottom should make upgrades easy. And while I haven’t started testing the performance of this computer yet, I was overall quite impressed with the CPU and graphics performance of the similarly-specced Aspire One 521.
