5 May 2011
  • Excerpt: The Acer Aspire One D255 tries hard to be a performance netbook but falls short in a few areas. The baseline specifications for the hardware are OK; however, the D255 does not have enough RAM to take advantage of the hardware. The D255 also lacks some of the nicer features found in netbooks that ranked higher in our lineup. A feature worth noting is that the entire netbook only weighs 2.76 pounds.
  • Pros: The included Intel Atom N570 is a powerful processor
  • Cons: A small hard drive and limited RAM sour the deal a bit.

Netbook Review: Acer Aspire One D255

2 December 2010
  • Conclusion: While not without its limitations, the Acer Aspire One D255 is a capable system that will meet the needs of many users at a fraction of the cost, size, and weight of a full-sized laptop PC. But do its price and capabilities keep it competitive against tablets? With more tablets being released weekly, it's anybody's call what the future holds.

Review Acer Aspire One D255 Netbook (N550)

17 November 2010
  • Summary: Dual high-flyer. Dual core is moving into Netbooks. That the battery run times don't shorten as a result, and instead increase is shown by our tested device. Why the mobility nevertheless casts a shadow can be discovered in this review.
  • Pros: Good battery life, Low weight, Space saving and light power adapter, Low power consumption, Quiet hard drive, Low heat emission, Acceptable processing speed, Low weight and power consumption.
  • Cons: Reflective TFT, Weak contrast, Display too dark, Low resolution, Bad input devices, Cooling fan permanently active, Few interfaces, RAM & HDD difficult to change, A non-reflective and brighter display would be important for use outdoors on sunny days.

20 October 2010
  • Excerpt: This low-cost netbook stands out for its dual-core CPU, though the speed boost over a single-core chip isn't huge. Still, it's a good choice for those who need to squeak out a little more performance within a very tight budget.
  • Pros: Dual-core CPU, Six-cell battery, Low price, LED-backlit display
  • Cons: Mostly average performance scores, Cramped keyboard

LAPTOP Magazine
23 September 2010
  • Excerpt: The Acer Aspire One D255 (price not yet announced)  is Acer's first dual-core netbook, and one of the first 10-inchers anywhere to use Intel's new Atom N550 processor. The netbook's benchmark performance is moderately better than single-core competitors. We also like how portable this design is, even when compared to other lightweight netbooks. However, is the D255 fast enough to overcome some of its flaws?
  • Pros: Smaller and lighter than other netbooks, Strong battery Life, Above-average performance, Runs cool
  • Cons: Jumpy cursor, Keyboard a bit cramped, Washed-out webcam, Annoying trialware

Acer Aspire One D255 review

Pocket Lint
7 December 2010
  • Excerpt: The Acer Aspire One D255 serves up a new Intel Atom N550 processor, offering dual cores, as well as two operating systems – Windows 7 Starter and Android 2.2. We’re big fans of Android in mobile phones, but we’ve questioned Android on netbooks before and the same is true here. The D255 shares specs with the Acer Aspire One Happy , although this model comes in conventional "sad" colours, like red and black.
  • Pros: Price, dual core Atom makes it a smooth operator
  • Cons: Android seems to lack purpose, some build quality complaints
