Acer aspire one 756 (review + tweaks)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 12, 2012
I just got this netbook and put xubuntu on it, dual boot with window 7. Wifi/LAN/hdmi/xrandr work out of box (I have not tried VGA). Suspend also works via the logout menu, but not through the F4 key. Volume control, speaker mute and wifi on/off work via function keys.
Multitouch works out of box, including two-fingers vertical and horizontal scrolling (you might need to adjust touchpad settings in xfce). Pinch-zoom does not work. Right-click is slightly flaky and/or I have not yet found the sweet spot for right click (which I guess means it's flaky :-)
On a freshly charged battery, xubuntu reports/predicts 5:32 of battery life. I have not tried to drain it, but based on experience with other laptops this is a reasonable estimate for normal use (40% brightness, wifi on, light browsing+emails+editing); take 30% for looping youtubes :-)
The speakers are surpising loud but very tinny. I watched fullscreen 720p video (using VLC) for about 40min (on AC); the palm rest is warm
Review of around 89 months of using ubuntu.

I had heard about ubuntu in digit mag around 5-6 times but never cared to think about it for even 1s one day i installed vista(pirated which acted like original) on my parents laptop(which had xp pirated) and ran a WGA on the xp partition to show that its pirated to my parents and have a sense of achievement about it.someday i remembered about ubuntu and did a bit of research on it and i found that while it is stable and fast you cannot run ANY games on it (the usual FUD on the internet and since i didn't use it i didn't know better) and the only way to play games is playonlinux. later my mother started a conversation about it that could we install it and use it i told her that you could install it but there are no games for it she replied with she didn't aptly any games. the topic was forgottent and i moved on . then someday i heard about wubi and saw a screenshot which had both windows and ubuntu in the menu so i felt safe and installed it immediately. then after 5-10 days i saw tha
My review of Windows users converted to Ubuntu.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 8, 2012
Okay. Today I will be voicing out some of the most COMMON problems I have seen with my own two eyes that lead potential Ubuntu users right back to Windows faster than they came. I will be talking as though I were these type of users.
So, I hear that this Ubuntu is a fast reliable operating system free from virus's and such. I suppose I should give it a try especially since my trustful friend strongly recommends it.
Okay, so now I managed to install Ubuntu..Wow neat this looks really good. I never knew Linux has gone this far. I almost like this better than Windows already.
Lets take a look at the software center. Wow, most of the apps I could ever use are here, that is good to know. Wait, there is one that I can't find..Why isn't Gimp 2.8 on here? Oh wait I see I haven't updated my system yet. (Updates the system)
Well, it's still not here. I thought all my packages were updated automatically? I should google this.
Oh I see, I must add a PPA,

gazelle professional review
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 13, 2013
I received mine on January 4th 2013. Since then I've had 2 minor problems:
1. Being forced into ubuntu (I do not like the recent trend of preinstalled amazon ads). When you do a little research, you find that if you don't run this machine with a modern linux kernel, you might get system crashes. Ever since I've been running ubuntu 12.10, though, I have experienced no crashes.
2. When placed on a flat surface, the laptop is uneven. One leg appears to be too short. I bring a few flashcards around. Oh well.
I carry this laptop around in my backpack all the time as I walk and bike. I tend to treat it well. As of this point I don't have any big complaints. It was a well priced machine which serves me as a portable workstation/desktop.
I want to respond to this guy's review:
Body: You can see the design on their website. I've never been hurt by holding this computer.
Screen: I agree: the screen casing is a bit flimsy.
