Acer Aspire One D260: If 3G is All You Really Want

 

Acer has been making netbooks long enough to know what the users of today are really looking for. With internet dongles available with most service providers and with 3G materializing slowly, connectivity can easily be termed as an important...

At a price of Rs. 17,999 (MOP) or 19,999 (MRP) the Aspire One D260 feels overpriced. In terms of performance, there's nothing that this netbook does which the Toshiba NB520 cannot do better. Agreed that 3G compatibility is a neat feature, but for now...

Acer Aspire One D260-1270

 

Thanks to a few above average specs, like a 320GB hard drive and a long lasting battery, the Acer Aspire One D260-1270 stands out among a crowd of look-alike netbooks.

Dual core processor. 320GB hard drive. 2GB RAM. 9-hour battery life

Small keyboard. Bloatware

Acer Aspire One D260 (Dual-Core)

 

Acer's newest dual-core netbook has style and beefed-up specs to run Windows 7 Premium.

These days, netbook makers have to offer something special in order to justify a price above $300. Between the 2GB of RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium, and a decent keyboard and touchpad combo, the Acer Aspire One D260 does just that. Still, we give a...

Fashionistas will love this svelte netbook for its runway qualities, but short battery life will keep power users away.

Thinner and lighter than most netbooks ; Attractive design ; Large touchpad for a netbook ; Runs cool ; Good audio quality

Sluggish performance ; Mediocre streaming video quality ; Short battery life

We weren't impressed with the 1.3-megapixel webcam. Even with backlight correction set to its highest level, the images it captured were dark and didn't represent colors well. While chatting with a friend on Skype they reported that we looked blocky...

Acer Aspire One D260-23797

 

The Aspire One line of Netbooks has long been a bright spot in Acer's laptop lineup, thanks to the company's firm commitment to rock-bottom prices and decent, if unexciting, design and construction. The latest version, called the Acer Aspire One...

Small, thin design; large keyboard and touch pad

Merely average battery life; occasional sluggishness

Acer's Aspire D260 is slim and lightweight, even for a Netbook, but its slightly faster processor doesn't lead to better performance.

Acer Aspire One AOD260-1270

 

Just a couple of years ago, netbooks were the darlings of the mobile-tech world. Saturation in the netbook market, however, has led to many variations on the same device, sometimes with little to set one apart from the models that came before.

Dual-core processor ; Eye-pleasing LED-backlit display ; Slightly above-average performance for a netbook

Cramped keyboard ; So-so speakers ; Subpar Webcam

The AOD260 is a well-balanced dual-core netbook with a touch more pep than most and a striking LED screen. Despite the performance boost, also consider Acer's similar Aspire One D255, which sells for $50 less.

Acer Aspire One D260 review – an affordable netbook you would love

 

I can say I'm not a big fan of Acer laptops, mainly because I consider them entry level devices, more focused on budget than on features and build quality. However, I do have to admit that I was surprised...

I never thought I would get to appreciate an Acer mini laptop, but the Aspire One D260 really proved me Acer netbooks evolved a lot in these last years. In fact, with products like these, there's no wonder they are the best selling brand in this segment.

Acer Aspire One D260

 

Ranking among the world's top five PC vendors, Acer won't let consumers down with the Acer Aspire One D260. This computing device isn't anything fancy but it has improved greatly from its predecessor, the Acer Aspire One D250. With enhanced...

This highly portable device offers a multi-in-1 card reader which supports numerous card formats. The memory on the D260 isn't anything extraordinary as it offers 1GB of RAM and 250GB on the hard drive. This is the amount of memory you will find on...

Consumer review by:

Almost Perfect.

 

If the cons weren't present so glaringly, this would be a perfect little machine for me. I bought it because I'd heard it was so fast, but I haven't seen any speed at all from this machine.

This is a slim, lightweight device with a fine keyboard spacial arrangement. I like the large desktop characters and the Microsoft Starter more than meets my needs

It just doesn't zip through the internet. Long load times can be maddening and I dislike not being able to change out wallpaper

Consumer review by:

Small, Powerful, and large keyboard

 

Full Review can be found below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DImUP8w7SRU Overall very nice product to use, its impressive 2GB's of RAM and affordable price are very nice selling points. Have not have a problem with the computer, installed Linux and...

Large Keyboard, Large Touch Pad, Thin, Light, Very Crisp and Clear resolution

Battery Life could be longer (it's currently around 3 1/2 - 4 hrs for me), Include an extension cable from the power brick, eliminating the hassle of covering multiple electricity outlet ports with the power brick. Speakers are not very powerful, but is e
