Acer turns the average netbook with a larger screen into a sexy machine celebrating exotic Italian cars.

For the benchmarks today, I will be using my typical netbook test suite including iTunes, Windows Media Encoder and Battery Eater Pro. The first test is Battery Eater Pro.

 


Battery Eater Pro

 

As always, the disclaimer with this benchmark is that your real world battery mileage will vary. The performance benchmark was done with all power saving settings turned off and the screen set to 100% brightness. The power saver test was done with the same settings, but the LCD was set to 50%.

iTunes Encoding

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 7.1.1.5

For the iTunes encoding test I take my Stone Temple Pilots Core CD in MP3 format and encode it to AAC using iTunes and record the time the task takes with a stopwatch.

Windows Media Encoder

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 9

The final benchmark is my Windows Media Encoder test where I take the 1080p HD Magic of Flight video from Microsoft and use WME to change the video to DVD quality video with CD quality audio. Check out the chart below to see how well the Acer netbook performed.
