Reviews and Problems with Acer Aspire One D260-series
Showing 1-10 of 54
Too slow to be functional.
28 December 2012
Summary: This is, without a doubt, the slowest laptop/netbook I have ever used. Despite a 1.6 ghz processor and 1G memory, it barely moves. Even after disabling most background programs, it still crawls. Watching videos is basically impossible, and navigating the internet is excruciatingly slow. Even opening and using basic programs is slow. My daughter is unable to use her very basic graphics program on it. Don't ever buy this netbook!!
Edited! Ran it through the paces and its a winner. Update 7 months!

Summary: I'm not new to pc's, laptops or netbooks after getting this netbook . I waited a month before placing a review so I could really work the pc and form a thorough opinion. Acer has a winner here. This netbook makes my desktop and laptop almost obsolete. The only thing that reminds you that this is still a netbook is that it cant run apps that require a processor 2GHz or higher. This netbook has a 1.5Ghz processor.
Summary: My daughter broke a fifty cent battery clip on her MSI Wind netbook in college. She needed a replacement so I gave her my ASUS EEE PC 1005. (MSI wont sell parts anymore, so I have to pay $50 plus shippng for a part that would take me two minutes to repair- another story and another review). I ordered this from Amazon but it was back ordered and had at least a 30 to 60 day delay. I prefer Amazon as the seller, but, when you need it now...
Summary: my first netbook, i love it. im streaming video, whatever i do , no problems. Just had to uninstall a bunch of crap bundled software. this has everything the other netbooks dont. big keyboard, 2 gigs ram, win 7 premium, dual core, 8 hour batt life, not disappointed at all.
Summary: I'm not a computer person and we already have a good desk top at home. The wife has larger laptop for her use, but we wanted a smaller netbook for when we travel (which is quite frequently) This Acer unit is perfect for this purpose and we love it.
Summary: This is an awesome netbook. This is my first netbook and I am so jazzed with the perfomance of this little machine. I have been able to watch full length TV shows on here very nicely. I have played a few computer games and the problem I have encountered with them is the screen is a little too short to get a great overall view of the game board. For my needs at this time, I can't complain this was well worth the $399 I paid for it. Real long battery life too!
Summary: This is my first time purchasing a netbook so I don't have much to compare it to but it has been a great little computer, exactly what I was looking for as far as size and cost goes. The keyboard is very nice and easy to type on, tracking pad is very responsive. This computer plays netflix without any problems and browsing on the internet is quick with great wireless reception.
Summary: I won't write too much on this netbook simply because there isn't much more to say than awesome. The screen is fantastic, the dual core really makes a difference when next to a single. The 2gb of ram is perfect. I had word, excel, and chrome open with 5 tabs and there was zero performance problems. Windows Home is a nice bonus. The storage is great, though I doubt I will fill it up as I am using this for internet and Microsoft Office.
Summary: I keep looking for a netbook to replace my laptop for a long time. I often travel to other cities to participate board game tournament. I need a powerful computer that can analyze games to 24th depth and with large position tables. This little netbook with dual core and 2G RAM is able to do that! It finishes analyzing a game within 3 minutes, very similar time compared with my home PC and laptop. I am so happy I no longer need to carry a heavy laptop to the airport.
Summary: I did a lot of research before I made my purchase. I was looking for a small portable netbook & this one had more bang for the buck. With 2GB of memory & Windows Home Premium, I didn't have to upgrade anything. This little guy is perfect for sitting on the couch surfing the net, checking e-mails & even Skyping with friends & family. It even shows You Tube videos or hulu shows with no issues.
