Acer Aspire One D257

Acer Aspire One D257 models are laptops that weight a little more than 1kg and they are the next generation of current 10” Netbooks, with a minimalist design similar to the one of the Timeline´series. The Taiwanese corporation has incorporated a great deal of improvements on the Acer Aspire One D257 but there isn’t any revolutionary change. All the same it’s still a great option for anyone looking for a netbook.
It incorporates 1.66 Ghz Intel Atom N570 dual core or 1.50Ghz Intel Atom N550 processors. In both cases the RAM memory available is a 1 GB or 2 GB DDR3. The storage is 250 GB, 320 GB or 500 GB depending on the version you have.

It supports the connection of an independent monitor, for which you can use a VGA port, although Acer hasn’t incorporated HDMI yet. The D257 trusts the visual power to a 64Mb Intel GMA 3150 integrated graphics card. It also includes High-Definition audio support, even though the standards are not specified. The capacity of the HD varies according to the configuration set from 250Gb to 500Gb. It has a memory card slot compatible to SD, MMC, MS, MSPro and XD.
This Acer Netbook comes in three colors: aquamarine, pearl with and black chocolate.
As a novelty, it stands out the incorporation of an Android-based instant boot mode. It lacks better HD content support, even though the Aspire One D257 is a stylish Netbook and with pretty solid components. There is no information regarding to date of release or prices yet.
