Acer Aspire One D250 Review Roundup

Acer Aspire One D250
The Acer Aspire One D250 is the latest 10-inch netbook from Acer. It comes with the same internal specs as its predecessor, the Aspire One D150, but fits into a slimmer and lighter case.

Here's a quick rundown for the Acer Aspire One D250 specs:
  • 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display
  • 1.6-GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU
  • 1GB RAM (upgradable to 2GB)
  • 160GB 5,400 rpm Hard Drive
  • Microsoft Windows XP Home (SP3)
Laptop Magazine, Liliputing, and PC Mag have each made their own reviews on the Aspire One d250, and all of them rated this netbook quite high. According to Laptop Magazine, the Acer Aspire One D250 provided fairly decent performance, and garnered nearly the exact same scores in every department as the D150, which is expected since it comes with an identical internal specs with its predecessor. Joe on Liliputing actually tried watching an episode of Lost in HD at and was pleasantly surprised to find it running smoothly all the way after a few moments of stuttering at the beginning.

Measuring 10.2 x 7.2 x 1 inches and weight 2.8 pounds (with a 6-cell battery), the Acer Aspire One D250 is very thin and light, almost identical to the ASUS Eee PC 1008HA, but does not look as stylish. The keyboard and touchpad for the Aspire One D250 is the biggest complaint which all of the reviews above find them be too small. Other than that, the rest of the functions are exceptionally well put together: three USB ports, VGA, Ethernet, a 4-in-1 memory card slot, headphone and mic ports, and a 0.3-megapixel webcam.

The most attractive part of this netbook is the price. While some manufacturers increase prices following a design update, Acer has kept the price steady on the Aspire One. As of now, you can get an Aspire One D250 with 6-cell battery for $345.99, and a 3-cell D250 for $295.99 on

The final verdict: The Acer Aspire One D250 is not the best netbook in the market, but it offers great value for the money you are paying for. It's one of the most affordable netbook on the market and still offer great performance.
