Now we are to the hands on portion of the Acer Aspire One 532h-2326 review. Acer has equipped the netbook with the new Intel Atom Pine Trail platform and despite the processor being one of the newest in the Atom line, it really offers no performance improvements over the older Atom processors. That fact may disappoint some people out there, but I think Intel is still not wanting to cannibalize its faster processor sales by producing netbooks with more performance.
The place where the new Pine Trail platform excels is in battery life. The Acer Aspire One 532h-2326 is only a few minutes behind the ASUS Eee 1101HA in battery life. The Eee netbook is the longest lasting netbook I have tested to date. What is even more impressive is that the Acer Aspire One 532h-2326 delivers good performance for a netbook and stellar battery life at a fantastic price. This is one of the cheapest netbooks on the market with some versions selling for as little as $299.
Acer didn't skimp on other features to hit the low price point either. The Acer Aspire One 532h-2326 has a good keyboard with the chicklet style that is popular in the market right now. The keys are well spaced, large, and all where they should be. Typing feel is great and the keyboard is easy to type on. I really like the track pad on the Acer Aspire One 532h-2326 too. It is the same color as the wrist rest around it, but has little bumps all over its surface providing excellent tactile feedback. The track pad is as accurate as you'd expect a track pad to be.
The screen is highly glossy with lots of glare, but offers good color reproduction. The lack of high-end graphics means you won't be watching HD video on the Acer Aspire One 532h-2326, but it works well enough for streaming YouTube or SD video with good color reproduction. The sound system is average for the netbook class with no bass to speak of, but enough volume for listening to movies and video without straining.
