Acer Aspire 1410 Motherboard

Acer Aspire 1410 Price & Overview

Notebook companies can now provide ultraportable systems that are priced comparable to netbooks but have far higher performance thanks to Intel's Ultra-Low Voltage CPUs. Take, for example, the Acer Aspire 1410. This computer has double the processing power of netbooks thanks to its dual-core Celeron CPU, and it costs $399 with Windows 7 Premium (rather than the limited Starter Edition). Although some netbooks have longer battery life, the Acer Aspire 1410 has a 6.5-hour battery life making it an excellent alternative for users on the road.

Acer Aspire 1410 Design

Acer Aspire 1410 Case

From the outside, the Acer Aspire 1410 seems comparable to the Acer Aspire Timeline 1810T; in fact, it's the same size and weight, measuring 11.2 x 8.0 x 1.2 inches and weighing 3.2 pounds. Acer's metal logo was impressed in the lower corner of our testing unit's glossy Ruby Red lid, which easily picked up fingerprints. The matte black keyboard and glossy black bezel contrast with the same hue on the deck. The 1410's six-cell battery does not extend from the back like the Acer Aspire One 751h's. Instead, it extends from the bottom, tilting Acer Aspire 1410 towards the user at a small downward angle.

Acer Aspire 1410 Keyboard and Touchpad

The 1410's keyboard, like most other modern Acer notebooks, has flat, non-chamfered plastic keys with a slightly tactile sensation. The layout is nearly full-size, and we like how the right Shift key is big and in the perfect spot. In little time, we were typing at full speed.

The touchpad is flat with the deck, with only two lines on either side separating it. It's a reasonable size, measuring 2.6 x 1.5 inches, and somewhat larger than the 751h's 2.5 x 1.6-inch touchpad. We enjoyed how little resistance it provided as we moved our fingers across it. (At 3.1 x 1.6 inches, Toshiba's tiny NB205 still has the largest touchpad.) The two silver buttons that accompanied it were lovely and crisp, which was an improvement over the single bar on the 751h.

Acer Aspire 1410 Display and Sound

The Acer Aspire 1410, like most 11.6-inch notebooks, has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. Because of the extra vertical pixels, you can watch high-definition content in 720p and scroll less when viewing Web pages or documents.

The display is really bright. We had pleasant colors and good viewing angles even from oblique side views when we watched an episode of The Simpsons on Hulu; it was as if we were watching the show on our TV. We were able to see the clip when we dipped the lid forward somewhat, despite the shiny coating limiting our viewing angles to either side of the Acer Aspire 1410.

The Acer Aspire 1410's speakers, which were located on the underside of the front lip, were adequate for a small notebook, but their placement muffled sound when the notebook was in our lap; when the notebook was placed on a hard surface, such as a coffee table, music from Slacker was able to reflect upwards and was amplified.

Acer Aspire 1410 Ports and Webcam

The Acer Aspire 1410 has an Ethernet port, a Kensington lock slot, two USB ports, a headphone and mic jack, and a 5-in-1 memory card reader on the right side. A VGA port, a third USB connector, and HDMI output are located on the left side. On the left-hand side, beneath the front lip, are well-concealed controls for activating Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Colors, such as dark green clothing, were represented properly in a video conversation over Skype using the 1.3-megapixel webcam positioned above the monitor. Our caller also stated that the image was well-lit, and that motion blur was only an issue if we waved our hand around a lot.

Acer Aspire 1410 Performance

The Acer Aspire 1410 achieved a score of 2,475 in PCMark Vantage, thanks to a 1.2-GHz Intel Celeron SU2300 CPU and 2GB of RAM. That's still approximately 300 points below the ultraportable average and around 500 points lower than the 1810T, but it's more than 1,000 points more than the MSI Wind12 U210 (which has a 1.6-GHz AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 CPU). The Gateway LT3103u (with a 1.2 GHz AMD Athlon 64 L110 CPU) received a score of over 1,300 points lower.

The Acer Aspire 1410's Geekbench score of 1510 is roughly double that of Atom-powered Windows 7 netbooks like the Toshiba mini NB205-N330BL (805) and the ASUS Eee PC 1008HA Seashell (826), and is very close to the 1810T's (1,605). The Acer Aspire 1410's 250GB, 5,400-rpm hard drive booted Windows Vista Home Premium in 55 seconds and performed admirably in our LAPTOP Transfer Test. It copied 4.97GB of multimedia files at a rate of 19.6 MBps, which was 1.0 MBps slower than the industry average.

We then put the Acer Aspire 1410 to the test by using HandBrake to convert a 114MB MPEG-4 file to AVI. The notebook took 12 minutes and 47 seconds, which is approximately 9 minutes faster than the MSI Wind12 U210 and roughly 2 minutes faster than the ultraportable average. The HP Mini 311, on the other hand, converted the file in less than half the time, thanks to vReveal, an application that takes advantage of the laptop's Nvidia Ion graphics.

The Acer Aspire 1410 performed admirably in ordinary computer chores such as surfing the Web, video chatting, playing Spore, and producing a document in Microsoft Word, never choking on any of the aforementioned tasks.

Acer Aspire 1410 Battery Life and Wi-Fi

The only area in which netbooks outperform ULV processors is in durability. On the LAPTOP Battery Test, the 1410's battery lasted 6 hours and 33 minutes (Web surfing via Wi-Fi). While this is approximately 2.5 hours less than the Toshiba small NB205-N330BL, it is around 1 hour and 15 minutes more than the ultraportable average (8:51). The Acer 1810T, which costs $200 more, has better performance and a longer runtime of 8:45 minutes than the Acer Aspire 1410.

At 15 feet from our access point, the 802.11a/b/g/draft-n Wi-Fi throughput of 19.9 Mbps was roughly in line with the category average (20.5); at 50 feet, it performed somewhat better, with a throughput of 18.7 Mbps (where the average is just 17.3 Mbps).

Acer Aspire 1410 Software

The Acer Aspire 1410 comes with a number of Acer-developed products, including GameZone and Crystal Eye webcam software, as well as CyberLink PowerDVD, Google Desktop, and Toolbar, a 60-day trial of Microsoft Office Home & Student 2007 a 30-day trial of McAfee InternetSecurity Suite, and Microsoft Works 9.0.


The Acer Aspire 1410 is a fantastic alternative if you enjoy the portability of netbooks but want greater power and a larger screen in the same price range. The Aspire Timeline 1810T, while similar in appearance, lasts a couple of hours longer on a charge and has greater RAM and hard drive capacity. However, that system is $200 more expensive. The 1410's dual-core processor, mobility, ergonomic keyboard, and over 6 hours of battery life make it an attractive pick at $399, the same price as most quality 10-inch netbooks.
