Advantages easy to use, small and light, long battery life
Disadvantages Comes with rubbish software pre-installed, can be slow when multi-tasking
Since my boyfriend got a laptop last year I've spent most evenings complaining that his laptop is permanently glued to his lap. I think this might have been the reason that he was generous enough to surprise me with this little gem late last year.The Aspire One was released by Acer in June 2008 and has become one of the most popular netbooks on the market. The D255 is a newer version of the 532h and D260 which are exactly the same in hardware, however the D255 comes with new software including the Windows 7 Starter Pack.
The Aspire One has built-in WiFi technology which is probably the most important thing to me as I generally use it for connecting to the Internet. It has three USB ports, an RJ-45 Ethernet port and an SD memory card reader. I didn't realise that for the first few weeks though and continued to upload my photos using a USB cord! There is another port for connecting it to an external monitor which is useful for when I need to connect Sky Player up and can watch Man City games and The Ashes on the big screen!When I got the netbook and read up on it, one of the things that the Internet kept telling is that it has Android technology but I'm afraid I still don't know what that means and don't think I've used it! It sounds like it is something to do with Google though. As mentioned earlier, it also comes with the Windows 7 starter pack installed; an edition of Windows 7 which contains only a few of the new features (this is common in netbooks).
The Aspire One comes with the Intel Atom Processor designed specifically for low power consumption while delivering power and performance for full online freedom. It has 160GB of hard drive memory which I was pleasantly surprised about with it being such a tiny computer!The keyboard is a full QWERTY keyboard with numbers and according to the PC Advisor website, it has the best keyboard to type on of any netbook apart from the Dell Inspiron Mini 10!
