Acer Aspire One AOD250 Reviewed

aceraspireone_d250_4614gAcer updated its Aspire One line with the AOD150 not too long ago and now has just reviewed the updated AOD250 we covered last week. The specs are pretty much standard run of the mill for netbooks but the AOD250 comes in at 0.3 inches thinner and over half a pound lighter than the AOD150. Unfortunately, the only thing that has really changed from the AOD150 to the AOD250 is the physical size and weight of the device. The AOD250 still uses Intel's Atom N270 processor while its competitors have started to switch to the nominally faster N280 processor. Pricing is a definite strong point for the AOD250, starting with a $289 buy-in price for a 3-cell battery unit. 6-cell battery units cost $349 and offers roughly double the battery life (almost 6 hours run time). Check out the review here.
