Lower cost Atom Netbooks: Acer Aspire One D255-2CKK

With the release of by Acer of the AMD Fusion powered Aspire One D522 at Php17,900 it was pretty much certain that lower cost Intel Atom netbooks would follow. Acer has also released the Acer Aspire One D255-2CKK.

Quick Specs:
    • Screen: 10.1" 1024 x 600 WSVGA LED backlit TFT LCD screen
    • Processor: Intel Atom N450 (1.66GHz, 512KB L2 cache, 667MHz FSB)
    • Graphics: Intel GMA3150 Graphics with 64MB of dedicate video
    • Memory: 1GB DDR2 Memory
    • Storage: 250 GB SATA Hard Drive and a SD card reader
    • Optical drive: None
    • Connectivity: Wifi b/g/n; Bluetooth; USB (x3); VGA Port; Ethernet Port
    • Dimensions: 9.8 x 6.7 x 1-1.1 inches
    • Battery: 6-cell (4400 mAh)
    • Weight: 2.4 lbs.
    There are two model available, a DOS version priced at Php13,999 and one with Windows 7 Starter installed at Php17,999. 

    We recommend the DOS version, and just have it bundled with an OEM copy of Windows 7 Starter which is priced at Php1,999. This makes the total cost with Windows Php15,998. Or better yet, why not try Ubuntu Linux and maximize your savings.  


    1. might be a better choice to add 2k for a new AMD Fusion with HD output & 1gig more memory +dual core APU

    2. Agreed. The only reason to buy one of the new cheaper Atoms is the lower cost and the longer battery life. But right now, the only netbook I can recommend is the AMD Fusion based Acer.

      Battery life versus the higher resolution screen, ability to play 1080p HD, HDMI out, better 3D capability... the charger is not that hard to carry around for those occasions when you need to use it for more than 4 hours...
