Acer Aspire One Cloudbook Review – $189 Low Cost Windows 10 Laptop Notebook PC

Buy this reviewed item at my store for a discount! Acer has a new sub $200 Windows computer running with the latest Intel “Braswell” Celeron chipset.

Buy it on Amazon – (affiliate link) –

05:53 – Octane web benchmark
06:51 – Microsoft Word Performance
07:32 – Minecraft and Gaming
09:20 – Kodi and Blu Ray MKV playback
09:57 – Conclusion and final thoughts

Surprisingly the bump to Braswell technology does not result in an increase in speed. On CPU intensive tasks the Braswell Celeron N3050 performs about the same as the Celeron chip in last year’s Acer Aspire E 11.

Everything performs as one might expect from a PC at this price point with the exception of Minecraft. For some reason Minecraft performance was pretty lousy, far worse than even older and somewhat less powerful Atom based laptops. I suspect there’s some driver issues to work out.

    I used to have this, it broke because of a game my friend wanted me to downloaded and it had a virus because we didn't know. Now I have a crappy toshiba Windows 7 satellite. I hate my PC now.

    How do you get it out of automatic repair mode? I went to log on and it keeps going to there, none of the options fix the issue. The last thing it attempted was a windows update. The unit seems to use up space even when not in use. I had to find things to delete just to keep it operable without asking for more space to run updates. I had what it came with, and my anti virus software. I even got rid of some of software it came with as it was running out of space. Wow, this product is viable.
