Acer Aspire D255 video review

Read the full Acer Aspire D255 review

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.

"...even viewing angles are decent enough if you angle the screen right. "

Um - I guess they would be :D

@Matt McGuire:

Well, you can't argue with the logic :D

Seriously though, what I meant to say and convey was that "horizontal viewing angles are decent enough if you angle the display right vertically." Thanks for pointing that out, hope the clarification... clarifies things ;)

The problem I see with these dual core atom netbooks they are priced too high. You get far better value and performance with CULV notebooks such as the Acer timeline series. You can grab one for about £400 inc VAT and dual core atoms costing £300 it makes far more sense to spend an extra £100.

They need to bring the pricing down closer to £200.

They need to be around £200 before considering

We have a number of these units on our site @
Unfortunately the problem we see is that there seems to be a big discrepancy between sellers specifications.
These netbooks have a fantastic Dual Core processor - but a lot of online stores either do not state this point or actually report the item as having only a single core processor.
These netbooks are excellent value for money - @AlmostDone: we have these substantially under your £200 request!
