Acer Aspire One D260 review

Cool Purple called Acer Aspire one the color of the D260: lid, palm rest and touchpad emit a rich, shiny purple. The bottom case is lacquered, but in black. It lacks a flap to change the memory conveniently. The Acer Aspire One is pleasantly flat D260: The integrated 6-cell battery does not protrude over the housing and bucks even on the netbook.

No surprises with the battery life
Common than the color was the Acer Aspire One battery in the D260 review: While surfing via WLAN it ran on one battery charge just under eight, when playing a video just under six hours. These results may be a current netbook with standard 6-cell battery as it sits in the Acer Aspire One D260 expect. Weighing just 200 grams and the power supply very easily the netbook itself takes 1,240 grams on the scale

Panel without gloss
The screen of the tester was anti-reflective coating, but agreed not particularly bright but the contrast. Some models of the Aspire One D260 a gloss screen sits in the housing. Advantageous: The screen can be opened very far. So you can adjust in any sitting position with the best viewing angle.

Keyboard noise
At the soft keyboard disturbed the low stroke: One wants to press the keys when typing more than it actually is. They are arranged in the netbook typical distance of 17.5 millimeters. Apart from the function and cursor keys, six buttons are narrower: the disturbing but hardly, as it is, for example, "+" and "#", which are normally not used very often. In the noise test, the Aspire One board could D260 absolutely convincing: it was not audible under load.
                                          image source:
The Acer Aspire One D260 comes with everything you expect from a current netbook: So no HDMI output, but three USB 2.0 ports, a 250 GB hard drive, 11n WLAN, and Bluetooth 3.0. As in other Acer software installed the updater, which can download the latest drivers for the Netbook.

Test Result: pretty boy with character
The facade does the Acer Aspire One D260 with the flat housing in a striking color. But the inner values of the netbooks do not have to hide: Except for the not very bright screen and the only guarantee it for 12 months on netbook hunk nothing wrong.

Alternatives: A little more restrained in design - but still chic, with dual-core processor, the Asus EeePC 1015PEM. A much better running times, the Samsung N220 Marvel-Plus.
