Just yesterday I picked up an Acer AO722-BZ825 (long name, small price!) for $329 CDN. I wanted something smaller than my recently acquired Acer 15.6". Besides, my wife is now at school so she has the latter system ...ok, a valid excuse to get a new system! The 722 is a really sweet netbook. 11.6" 1366x768 screen, AMD C-50 (which kills any Atom out there, especially in video), 2GB RAM, 250GB standard 5400RPM drive, BT 3.0, Wireless N, GB ethernet, HDMI port, Win7 Home Premium 64bit, 6 cell batt. and hardware virtualization support (AMD-V). The HDD is the slow part of the system so after I backed up the OS Recovery to my external drive I then installed my Seagate Momentus XT hybrid which is 7200RPM, 32MB cache and a has a 4GB SLD NAND chip. When this drive was in the other laptop it got rather warm even when it was under average load. After intensive use in the 722 it creates almost no heat. 2GB RAM is not bad, I could get a single 4GB I see no need for now. Chrome with 8 tabs, 4 apps in the startup menu, 76 processes total I'm only at about 1GB. Once my course is over in 2-3 months I'll be replacing Win7 with Trisquel which uses about 300MB RAM on startup. The need for Silverlight is hindering my ability to wipe Win7 atm. Battery life is excellent. After watching online labsims for about 3.5 - 4 hrs and surfing in between (basically wifi on the entire time) I was up for about 5.5 hrs. On my previous other laptop I got 2.5 if I was lucky. Highly recommended if you want something small/portable and fully capable of running just about anything out there.
