Acer bring out energy-efficent Aspire One D255
Netbook is designed to run for eight hours after a single charge
The new thin Acer Aspire One D255 is designed to give you eight hours of power with one charge; the netbook also has twice the power compared to its predecessors thanks to the Intel Atom dual core processor for netbooks.
Acer equipped the Aspire One D255 with either the dual-core Intel Atom processor N550, which is designed to ensure a more responsive mobile internet experience and supports DDR3 memory while offering a great battery life, or the Intel Atom processor N450 with DDR2 memory support. The Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150, supporting Microsoft DirectX 9, gives a good graphics performance. The Aspire One houses an internal hard disk with up to 250 GB of capacity and a built-in multi-in-one card reader.
The netbook comes with several connectivity options including Wi-Fi, Fast Ethernet or optional 3G and optional Bluetooth 3.0+HS.
The 24mm thick, 1.25 kg netbook with 6-cell battery pack features a 28 cm Acer CrystalBrite WSVGA display with a 1024x600 pixel resolution and a 16:9 format.
You can choose from four colours: Diamond Black, Ruby Red, Sandstone Brown, and Seashell White.
The D255 comes with the Acer MiniGo adapter which according to the company is lighter than typical adapters, and saves 1/3 charging time.
Acer has also tried to ensure that this netbook is environmentally friendly. The unit uses smart power technologies combined with environmentally friendly manufacturing. According to the company, it restricted the use of hazardous substances during production. The single charge all-day power, Acer MiniGo adapter, LED backlit display and low power processor ensure compliance with Energy Star requirements.
