The updated Aspire One impresses in all the right areas. Acer's Aspire One was among the first few netbooks to be released in the UK, and it has since gone on to become the UK's best-selling netbook. It is now joined by the larger Aspire One D150 with a 10.1-inch Super-TFT screen with a 1024 x 600-pixel resolution backed with an Intel Atom and an Intel GMA950 integrated graphics card making images are sharp and clear. Overall, the Acer Aspire One D150 is a very nice piece of kit. The screen size and great keyboard have benefited usability, resulting in a well-rounded netbook to satisfy most demands.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).
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).
Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors. Compared to the N270, the N280 is only minimally higher clocked and offers a higher FSB.

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
