After swearing not to ever buy an Acer again in the early 2000s, I
broke my word and got one of the first-generation netbook Aspire One
models. I used it as my primary laptop for >5 years.
I am in my third year using the second machine of the same brand/line;
am completely happy and satisfied. For my first machine, I had to
change the battery once (never had to with the current one), and for
both, I had to change the power adaptor. Power adaptors are probably
the best you will find in this brand.
The machines are on the slow side of reality, but for modest needs,
they do the job quite well.
