Acer Aspire One D260: If 3G is All You Really Want
3 August 2011
Summary: 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 3G in India is not at its full-fledged best. Although a dongle for 3G is not very convenient to use, you can still go for the ASUS 1015PEM or the Toshiba NB520 which have USB ports for 3G connectivity through a dongle.
Excerpt: 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.
Pros: Dual-core processor, Eye-pleasing LED-backlit display, Slightly above-average performance for a netbook
Excerpt: Billed as a perfect laptop for students the Acer Aspire One D260 features a compact 10.1-inch screen with an Intel Atom processor, 1024MB of RAM, 160GB hard drive and Windows 7 operating system.
Acer Aspire One D260 review – an affordable netbook you would love
8 November 2010
Conclusion: 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. Of course, the D260 is not a top-end machine, but one meant to offer the basics and satisfy customers with a limited budget and not that high expectations. And it is actually very good at fulfilling this task.
Summary: For the price, you get a decent 10-inch netbook with a fresh new look, standard performance and features, and very good battery life. But it doesnâ€™t come with the Windows 7 operating system, settling for Windows XP instead.
The netbook doesnâ€™t come with extra features like a pre-OS, face-recognition tool, more RAM or larger hard drive.
Acer Aspire One D260-23797 – With a new Intel Atom processor
25 August 2010
Excerpt: The Aspire One series of Netbooks have been really popular amongst the Acer’s laptop lineup and this is because the company has kept the prices really low. It also offers decent design and good construction. The latest Aspire One laptop to turn up in my labs was the Acer Aspire One D260-23797. This is one of the D260’s fixed configurations and each of them comes with a bit of different components.
Conclusion: If you're in the market for a netbook, you're probably looking for a system that's cheap, good looking, and able to run for a whole working day. Acer's Aspire One D260 almost fits the bill. At £250, it's cheaper than many of its direct rivals but you wouldn't know it when looking at the machine; its modern style and trendy patterns don't reflect the price tag.
Summary: Acer prioritized looks and portability above longevity in the D260, but this netbook manages to be charming even with its below-average battery life. Its $299 price is equally attractive, but for the same amount you could scoop up the ASUS Eee PC 1001P, which, though it has a smaller 160GB hard drive, fared better in several performance tests, including battery life.
Pros: Thinner and lighter than most netbooks, Attractive design, Large touchpad for a netbook, Runs cool, Good audio quality
Cons: Sluggish performance, Mediocre streaming video quality, Short battery life
