I recently bought an Acer Aspire One ZG5 for usinng AROS, the netbook comes with a Celeron at 1.6ghz, 1.5 gb ram and a 160gb hard drive. The machine itself is in very nice condition, the screen has no dead pixels or scratches and is very bright, running AROS is a great experience, it runs fast and works well with video, audio and wifi, surfing is good. It comes with a 9 cell battery which should give around 8 hours of battery life and a free USB DVD writer/reader. For everything I am looking for 49.00 plus shipping.

That I am not sure of, I will try some 720p and 1080p videos, are you concerned with MP4 or MKV?

Hi justd tested a HD MP4 video file and it ran flawlessly, very smooth and no problems, better than my DVD player! Seems the video drivers really take advantage of the hardware.

Hi

I have one of these and they are great for running Aros on, especially with the full driver support, most of which I paid for :-)

Any way, 720p is possible depending on the file format, 1080p no chance. Has great 3d ability and is brilliant plugged into a 1080p monitor.

Also, it can run Classic workbench at a reasonable speed as well.

Thanks for the comments, I have only tried 720p files but it ran well, due to the lack of interest I have lowered the price to 69.00.

Last time to lower the price before selling on the other bay.

I can install Windows or another OS such as Mint or Haiku OS if the buyer wants, Haiku OS runs very well on it too.
