Acer Aspire One 10-inch netbook tested with normal 2200mAh battery

Netbooks are extremely popular right now and their popularity only continues to grow. Acer has the most popular netbook on the market with its 9-inch Aspire One. The machine is the top selling netbook right now and to keep that top spot, Acer is coming out with a new netbook with a larger screen.

The Acer Aspire One 10-inch offers a larger screen than the original that should be more popular than the original 9-inch version. When the first batch of 10-inch Aspire One's went out, Acer reported that a battery issue had been discovered. Unlike most battery issues which mean the system is either going to burst into flames or won’t run as long as promised, this battery error was in the user's favor.

The first batch of the new netbook to hit the market had a 6-cell battery inside the offered 5500 mAh, but what was supposed to have been used was a 6-cell battery with 4400 mAh. The larger battery was good for 7 hours and 57 minutes of runtime according to Laptop Magazine.

Laptop got a normal 4400 mAh battery and when tested it ran but a mere 4 hours and 24 minutes. Laptop points out that for only $50 more you can get the Eee 1000HE that will run for 7 hours.

You can already get a netbook with sim card slot/3G (carrier locked usually). At which point you can just use voip.
