84% Review Acer Aspire One D255 Netbook (N550) | Notebookcheck
Dual high-flyer. Dual core is moving into Netbooks. That the battery run times don't shorten as a result, and instead increase is shown by our tested device. Why the mobility nevertheless casts a shadow can be discovered in this review.

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 One D255
Source: IT Reviews English
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 Windows 7 Starter may only have limited appeal

While not without its limitations, the Acer Aspire One D255 is a capable system that will meet the needs of many users at a fraction of the cost, size, and weight of a full-sized laptop PC. But do its price and capabilities keep it competitive against tablets? With more tablets being released weekly, it's anybody's call what the future holds.

Available in a wide range of colours, this compact and well-built Acer netbook offers not only dual-core computing but also the unique advantage of switching between Android and Windows 7 at will. Unfortunately, both Acer's Android 2.1 implementation and the D255's battery life in this configuration leave much to be desired, so at its current price you're probably better off looking elsewhere.

Acer Aspire One D255 Review
Source: Slashgear English

There are always compromises to be made when you build to a budget, and Acer has done well with the Aspire One D255 in order to avoid the netbook feeling unduly cheap or underpowered. With a street price of $329.99 it’s affordable and offers decent longevity away from the mains. Anybody with ambitions beyond basic browsing and media playback should look to something more powerful, but for mainstream use the D255 is perfectly sufficient.

Every product has its strong points and this one does too. Price being the strongest point here, even the form factor, light weight and overall looks are pretty good. I’d say that if you need a very portable netbook with very good battery life (7 hours 30 minutes), at Rs 14,999, the D255 is an excellent pick.

If you're looking to buy a netbook, chances are good that price is your number-one purchasing factor. This low-cost netbook stands out for its dual-core CPU, though the speed boost over a single-core chip isn't huge. Still, it's a good choice for those who need to squeak out a little more performance within a very tight budget.

The Acer Aspire One D255 comes preloaded with an extraordinary amount of trialware. It has both McAfee Internet Security and Norton Online Backup running by default. Until you register or uninstall both of these programs, they are extremely annoying as they periodically pop up alerts notifying you to purchase full versions.

Acer's Aspire One D255 isn't revolutionary really. What it does do is provide an affordable and more compact netbook than previous models. Prices are under $300 and weight around 2.4 pound. The sacrifices for price and weight come at the cost of both running time and storage capacity. The result is a trade off that will work for those that don't need the storage space or long running times but if you need it, there are other options available.

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 there seems no clear use for it at present beyond a way of siloing off different types of data between the two. The price is good but not cheap enough compared to other netbooks to really stand out.

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. The partnering of Android with Windows 7 still doesn’t appeal to us. The Android OS is tempting but ultimately doesn’t really offer enough to get excited about. We’d rather boot straight into Windows 7, which offers much better performance. Fortunately Acer offer simple control over the Android side of things so you can opt to disable it if you like.

Otherwise the build quality and choice of materials isn’t premium, but the performance overall is great for a compact device to take on the road with you.

The Acer Aspire One D255 is a 10-inch netbook from Acer's Aspire One range. There's nothing new in the Acer Aspire One D255 netbook compared to its 10-inch predecessors - Acer Aspire One 532h and Acer Aspire One D260 - in terms of hardware, but it comes with Google Android 1.6 dual-booting with Windows 7 Starter Edition.

The Acer Aspire One D255 is an update to the D260 netbook we reviewed recently.Acer's rather silly naming convention means there are several D255 models available, with different prices and specifications. A bit more expensive than some netbooks, but this good-looking, relatively powerful model is good value – just make sure you get the right model.

Source: Techradar English
We like the sentiment and the smartphone-centric OS does transfer nicely on to the netbook – but we can't really see the point and were just as happy using Windows 7 for the above. Fortunately, the Acer Aspire One D255 does the basics very well, making this an incredibly usable and portable option. We're just not convinced about the inclusion of Android, however.

Source: It Pro English
There's little point in buying the Aspire One to use Android which isn't of much use on a netbook for most people. However, when used with Windows 7, the Aspire One is generally a pleasure to use thanks to its long battery life and responsive, comfortable keyboard. If you want extras such as integrated Bluetooth, a SDXC card slot and a matt display, then it may be worth paying £40 more for the Samsung NF210 if you can live with that model's slightly shorter battery life.

Acer reviews


These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

N550: Dual core Atom with a TDP of only 8.5 Watt. Because of the slow clock speed of 1.5 GHz it may be sometimes even slower than a N465 Atom CPU.

N450:

Intel Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated memory controller and GMA 3150 GPU. The performance of the system should be only minimally faster than the previous Atom N280 / GMA 950 combination.


10.1: The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.1 kg:

This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

1.3 kg:

This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


72.95%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
