Reviews for the Acer Aspire One D257-N57DQrr

Acer Aspire One D257 review- a solid 10 inch netbook right now
Source: Netbooklive English
Acer Aspire One D257 review- a solid 10 inch netbook right now While it can’t be called a perfect device, having some faults and weak points, the number of strong points overwhelms these and make the AOD257 a possible best-seller in our opinion. The netbook packs a strong hardware configuration for a device of its size, features a very original and good-looking design and also comes at a pretty competitive price. On the other hand, we can’t completely overlook the minor problems, as the glossy finish, glossy display or the not-really-ideal keyboard and trackpad. Or, in our case, the glitchy OS, but like I said, for most of you this should not really be a problem, as Acer decided to bundle the D257 with Windows 7 Starter on most markets. In the end, you’ll just have to ask yourself what do you value more: the cheap price tag and sleek looking body, or extra battery life, matte screen and maybe better keyboard. If you’re into the first options, the D257 Aspire One and also the Happy 2 lines can be your ideal picks. Otherwise, check out some of the other entries in our list of recommend 10 inch netbooks of the moment.

Comment

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).

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

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).


N570: Dual core Atom processor with a slightly higher clock rate than the Atom N550 and therefore still slower than the CULV processors.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


1.3 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.
