Acer Puts Windows 7 Starter On Aspire One D250 Netbook
- 1 Comment
Acer has been quite the attention-getter lately, announcing today that it would offer Windows 7 Starter Edition on its Aspire One D250 netbook the same day as its Android Aspire One netbook went up for pre-order on Amazon, which you can read about here.
The netbook destined to receive Windows 7 Starter, the Aspire One D250, has a 10.1-inch LED screen like most other Acer Aspire One netboks. However, its resolution is higher, at 1280 x 720 pixels. It features the 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU, GMA 950 graphics chipset, 2GB of RAM and a 160GB HDD.
Other features are expansive, including USB ports, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, a card reader, and webcam. The touchpad is multitouch as well, a big bonus considering that Windows 7 will support gestures. The 6-cell battery is a big plus, running for as long as 7.5 hours.
You can expect Acer’s new Windows 7 netbook by October for 46,800 or around $553. Pricing should be lower in the event of a US release, so keep your eyes peeled.
