Review – Acer Aspire One D150 Netbook
7 August 2009
Conclusion: There isn’t too much much to mark out this netbook from its rivals in terms of performance, but the Acer Aspire One D150-1BW is excellent value and performs at a high standard. There are gripes – as there are with all netbooks – but in general, if you’re looking for a slim, stylish netbook for an extremely appealing price you would be hard-pressed to find better value on the market at the moment.
Excerpt: The Acer Aspire netbook One D150 has a 10.1-inch screen and a 160GB hard drive, and has the option of fitting up to 2GB of memory. It also has the new N280 Intel Atom processor, which runs at 1.66GHz. It weighs 1.34kg and measures 260x185x33mm. It has a battery life of over six hours.
Conclusion: We were also very curious about how the successor of the up-till-now worldwide most sold netbook would look like and especially where it's going to position itself in comparison to its, in the meantime numerous, competitors. Now the time has come and our overall impression turns out somewhat divided . On the one hand, Acer delivers a very compact and also robust chassis , but for which only plastic components have been applied effectively on the surface.
Pros: Very compact and robust chassis, Low-priced warranty upgrade to 36 months available, Bright display with excellent illumination, Good performance data of the Atom N280 CPU, Adequate sound playing quality, Excellent battery runtime, Just short of 40.00 for an extension of warranty of 36 months – that's something we'd like to see by some other models.
Cons: Comparatively small figure keys, Cramped touchpad keys, Restricted outdoor suitability due to a glossy display, Unpleasant soundscape in office mode, High temperatures are possible to a part, Primarily, a matt, 100% outdoor suitable display. Hello dear constructors, a netbook would like to be used even at partly adverse light conditions on the go?!
Excerpt: Acer has recently announced Acer Aspire One AOD150 ultra-portable netbook is powered by 1.6 GHz Intel Atom N270 Processor and it includes 512-MB L2 Cache, upto 533 MHz FSB, 1-GB DDR2 SDRAM and 160GB 5400 rpm SATA hard drive.
Summary: Acer's Aspire One provides a capable Windows PC in a highly portable package, and the 10.1in screen is a reasonable compromise between the tiny screens of some netbooks and those of full-size laptops. With the optional battery, the Aspire should be able to last for about five hours use, which is useful for mobile workers, although pushing up the weight somewhat.
