Acer Aspire D255

 

This colourful netbook features a dual core Atom CPU and will boot into either Windows 7 or Android 2.1.

Dual-core Atom CPU, Dual boot Android & Windows, Well-built

Largely mediocre specifications, Android navigation needs touch

Acer Aspire One D255

 

The Acer Aspire One D255 serves up a new Intel Atom N550 processor, offering dual cores, as well as two operating systems – Windows 7 Starter and Android 2.2. We're big fans of Android in mobile phones, but we've questioned Android on netbooks before...

Price, dual core Atom makes it a smooth operator

Android seems to lack purpose, some build quality complaints

The Acer Aspire One D255 isn’t the best looking netbook out there, but like Acer netbooks we’ve seen in the past, it does incorporate some of the newest hardware at a price that’s hard to beat.

Acer Aspire One D255 review

 

Long battery life ; large keyboard ; build quality

Colours look washed out, Android is unnecessary

A great netbook, but the inclusion of Android seems a little unnecessary

A well-designed netbook with solid performance and battery life, although Android seems like an unnecessary inclusion.

Acer Aspire One D255 review

 

The Acer Aspire One D255 netbook has the exact same shell, chassis design of the Acer Aspire One D260. The Acer Aspire One D255's glossy screen lid is red in colour, attracts fingerprints but they aren't readily visible. Like the AOD260, the Acer...

The Acer Aspire One D255 sells for a price of £293 For that price you get a decent 10-inch netbook with a fresh new look, standard performance and features, and excellent battery life. And the Acer Aspire One D255 does come with Android 1.6 which boots...

Acer Aspire One D255 review

 

An affordable dual-core netbook that puts in a sterling all-round performance

Other netbooks offer more features, and AMD Fusion models are better at video, but those looking for a solid all-rounder need look no further. Acer’s Aspire One D255 delivers dual-core power at an excellent price.

Acer Aspire D255 review

 

The Acer Aspire D255 joins the growing ranks of devices that offer dual-boot of two operating systems, in this instance Windows 7 Starter and Android 2.1, which allows you to switch between the two as you work.

Lightweight; good battery; adequate specifications

Slow processor; small keyboard; no application store for Android

The Acer Aspire D255 is something of a mixed blessing, as many netbooks are. Lightweight and with good battery life, it is annoyingly slow at times and awkward to use. The dual-boot mode is interesting, and no doubt the future for many devices, but...

A Dual Booting Netbook : Acer Aspire One D255

 

Adding to its popular Aspire One family of products, Acer has released the D255 model. This is a 10.1-inch netbook.

Although this netbook has no pretensions of being a game-playing device, it was able to handle various casual-style gaming titles (a selection of trial versions is available immediately or for downloading). Other software supplied for the Windows...

Acer - Aspire One D255

 

Netbooks appeal to a variety of users, from the youthful, highly mobile social networking crowd to business people needing a small, light computer that can perform multiple undemanding tasks and provide swift access to the Net. ...

As with most of the Aspire One range, the D255 is a relatively fast and efficient netbook with the added bonus of a new dual-core CPU and a comfortably large keyboard. However, the battery life is low, and the ‘hook' of having an Android OS alongside...

Acer Aspire One AOD255-1203

 

The Acer Aspire One AOD255-1203 is any day the cheapest dual-core netbook, yet you get a full-size keyboard and more than 7 hours of battery life.

Dual-core Atom. Slimmest and lightest netbook. Aggressively priced. Over 7 hours of battery life.

Upgrading memory is difficult.
