Reviews for the Acer Aspire One D255

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

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.

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. » 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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
10.1":

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.

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

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


74.42%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
