IFA 2011 | Acer debuts Aspire One D257 netbook with MeeGo

The budget 10.1-inch notebook with Intel Atom already available for 222 Euros
Allen Ngo,

While the Aspire One D257 was announced back in February with dual-boot Windows 7 Starter and Android OS, a new model will be made available with MeeGo OS.

Specs will be more or less similar to what the Aspire One AOD257 offers, including an Intel 1.66GHz dual-core Atom N570, 2GB RAM, Intel GMA 3150 graphics, 320GB HDD and a 10.1-inch LED-backlit display at 1024x600 pixel resolution. While VGA-out and three USB 2.0 ports are available, an HDMI port is still absent.

Overall, the Aspire One D257 with MeeGo is expected to weigh about 1.3kg (2.86 pounds) and last for up to 8 hours from its 6-cell battery. The notebook is currently available for 222 Euros (318 USD) in Germany, although there is no word yet on when it would come stateside.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
