Review Acer Aspire One D250 Mininotebook


The Frugal One. With the Aspire One A110/ A150, Acer has passed o

Very low power comsumption; Low weight with 3-cell battery; Slim and chic design; Good workmanship and case quality; Very low noise emission; Relatively good battery runtime; Ease of access to installed components; Good keyboard

High heat levels on some parts of the case bottom; Glossy, low contrast display; Unpractical port positioning; Currently no UMTS option available; Very stiff headphone port

is very strong. Especially Asus Eee PC 1000H and Samsung NC10 offer overall a more balanced design and good properties for mobile work.

Acer Aspire One D250-1613


The latest model in the Aspire One netbook line is fairly nondescript. The D250-1613 has the same 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, plus 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, a tiny keyboard, and a microscopic multitouch pad. With its cookie-cutter netbook design, it...

Dual-boots to Android and Windows XP

Lacks some key Android apps out of the box

Acer adds a second OS to its Aspire One D250 without adding to the price--but that still doesn't feel like enough.

Acer Aspire One (D250-1958)


The Acer Aspire One (D250-1958) is sure to be a best-selling netbook because it's cheap, but the typing and navigating experience needs a drastic overhaul.

One of the lightest netbooks available. Pretty cheap. Very good battery life. Two-year Costco warranty

Bland design. Keyboard is cramped. Touchpad and mouse buttons are too small

Acer Aspire One D250 Review


Build quality looks quite good and the construction feels strong enough to handle being tossed around inside a book bag without much concern for its safety (well apart from possible scratches to the glossy surfaces). We detected some flexing in the LCD...

Low Price ; Nice build quality ; Easy access for upgrades

Poor battery life ; Small keyboard ; Still uses weak integrated graphics ; Bad touchpad buttons

As I've said before with netbooks, I'd like to see a higher resolution screen and better graphics solution, but when it comes to the Aspire One D250 I'd settle for a better keyboard, touchpad, and battery. Still, if you're looking for a low-cost...

Acer Aspire One D250 (Atom N270 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD, XP Home, red)


As prices keep dropping in the Netbook Wars, staying competitive among a slew of me-too Atom-powered mininotebooks is a challenge. While paying $500 for a Netbook was common just a year ago, today, stripped-down yet still functional Netbooks are now...

Rock-bottom price; slimmer size; improved touch pad buttons.

Weak speakers; battery life mediocre; small keyboard.

For the price, it's hard to find fault with Acer's even cheaper version of the 10.1-inch Aspire One, as long as you're not expecting top-of-the-line features.

Acer Aspire One (D250-1165)


The Acer Aspire One (D250-1165) is now thinner and lighter than its predecessor without raising prices.

Thinner and lighter than its predecessor. Price stays where it is. Very good battery life. Batteries are carried over from the previous version

89 percent keyboard is one of the smallest. Touchpad and mouse buttons are small

Acer Aspire One D250 (1165)


Acer's flagship netbook gets smaller and lighter.

Light, slim design ; Bright, crisp display

Somewhat cramped keyboard ; Small touchpad

Despite its slimmed-down physique, the D250 still manages to accommodate three USB ports, VGA, Ethernet, a 4-in-1 memory card slot, and headphone and mic ports. But the card slot is now on the right side (instead of the left), and the VGA, USB, and...

Acer Aspire One D250-1613 (Android) Netbook

For now, I'm over this implementation of Android, though I am hopeful for future updates. Camping in the top left of the screen is a quick-launch arrow for heading back to Windows, which is just as well--I'm ready to leave Android and get back to...
