Sony, Dell & Acer Netbook Review – The Three Kings of Netbook You Should Consider Buying

The netbooks come in unique colors and look like winners. However, the features are of prime importance. Right now, every big electronic company is designing Netbooks. That leads to a virtual mayhem and gross competition in the market. Companies keep improving their products by adhering to the latest inventions. However, on closer look, the three netbooks that have carved a niche for themselves in the hearts of all gadget-lovers are Sony, Acer, and Dell. These are brief netbook reviews for the best three.


Sony offers its netbooks in great color combinations ranging from black to beige to gold. The hard disk drive storage is huge at 250 GB and the Intel Core Duo allows a great blend with the 1.33 GB Intel Atom CPU. RAM comes in various quotas, from 512 MB to 4 GB. It has SDD installation to ensure steady graphics and the enormous pixel configuration stands at 1600X768. They may be hard on the eyes from up close. The crystals on the hinges assure you of no such occurrence. LED backlights are helpful at night. The Vista versions offer great downloading freedom and efficient offline work. There are many things a Linux netbook may miss. You can make them out by having a look at Sony netbooks. The optical system is brilliant with Blue-ray optimization. It may not be exactly the best on size quotient and price value, but with Sony netbooks, life shines like nothing else.


Dell comes next with its 1.86 GHz Intel Atom CPU. It also adapts to the Intel Core Duo processor. The twin processors make internal work real fast. The netbook is 3G enabled and has up to 250 GB hard disk storage capacity. Smart battery life is assured with a 6-cell setup. It stays charged for 6-7 hours once charged. It works best with Vista, which is a better version than Linux any day. Incidentally, maximum netbooks are using Linux operations.

It offers itself in patent black and red colors. Size and price are where it is a major winner over Sony. It is easily in range for the commoners. The lightweight 3.2 pounds netbook is what you can never complain about. The SSD installations keep the instrument quiet, classy, and slim. Dell also has great graphic options and the optical arena is Blue-ray optimized, just like Sony.


The Acer netbook is loaded with high quality graphic mode. Somehow, Blue-ray eludes it owing to space hassles but still the graphics leave no zone for complains. It has smart resolutions (1024X600 pixels), 1.6 GHz Atom CPU, Pentium processor and slick size. It has SSD installation; about 200 GB HDD space and smart gold or black look. The netbook does not have as much web-based storage as Sony or Dell. It is also beaten by the duo in flexibility and speed though. There are lesser number of USB portals too, which makes it rank third in netbook reviews.

How to measure

HDD capacity, SD installation, processor speed, 3G enabled, look, size and portability are main features to review a netbook. Equally important are in-built features (tuner, webcam, Bluetooth etc), Wi-Fi features, adaptability with various gadgets, excellent graphics and quality to cost ratio. Vista and XP operations have an edge over Linux. Obviously cheaper varieties will not have all the features but there has to be a balance. Price quote should not seem too high for the product you get.

In the final run

Reputation and continuous innovations leading into new models have led Sony to lead the pack followed by Dell and Acer according to recent netbook reviews. But with competition warming up, things can change pretty soon.
