Acer Aspire One D260 Netbook will run Android OS and Windows 7

July 1st will be the day that the Acer Aspire One D260 netbook becomes available to the masses. This netbook is unique in that it can dual boot with Android OS and Windows 7. While the Android aspect is not part of the standard option, it is nonetheless available to buyers interested in a netbook with a 15 second boot time. Gone will be the days of having to wait several minutes before checking one’s e-mail.

With the exception of the dual boot option, the netbook has all of the standard specifications. It comes with a 10 inch WSVGA display, a 1024 x 600 resolution, Intel GMA 3150 graphics, and runs on Intel’s 1.66Ghz Atom N455 processor. You can also choose between a 160GB or 250GB hard drive and between 1GB or 2GB of RAM. Other complementary features include WiFi, a webcam, and 8 hours of run time  provided by the netbook’s 6-cell battery. With the battery, that weight comes to 2.75 pounds. Acer has not yet revealed how much this netbook will cost, and whether or not the masses will flock to this netbook will depend on this last feature.

Acer Issues Voluntary Recall of Aspire Laptops

Acer has issued a voluntary recall of some of it’s Acer Aspire laptops, due to an overheating issue.

The fault apparently lies in a microphone cable that could cause laptops to overheat when extreme pressure is applied repeatedly to the left palm rest. This damages the case of the affected units, causing the system to malfunction. Acer stated that it would replace the microphone cable “to eliminate any risk overheating”, however, users will still need to check the serial or ID number via the Web site to determine whether their laptops are eligible for the recall.

The laptops that are elegible for the recall include Acer Aspire models AS3410, AS3810T, AS3810TZ and AS3810TZG, made before September 15 2009.

New Acer Aspire Laptop Is A Netbook Challenger

Before the laptop came to the market, PCs dominated. Later, a new, cheaper alternative came to the scene: the netbook. For students and budget buyers, the netbook seemed like a God-send. They were nearly as powerful, but were also smaller and more portable.

Now it looks like the laptop is fighting back with a new contender: The Acer Aspire 5516-5474, weighing in at 6 pounds, double the average weight for your standard netbook. At $279, this is a bargain to just about anyone, shaving some $300 off the price of other new ultra-thin laptops.

This bargain laptop computer is also a little power-house, featuring an AMD-Athlon TF-20 64bit Processor running a 1.6 GHz CPU, 2GB of DDR2 RAM (PC2-5300), and a 160GB Serial ATA hard drive. It also has a crisp 15.6″ display.

This laptop comes with Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic Service Pack 1, as well as a host of other programs, making it ready for anything you’d want to throw at it (apart from your cup of coffee!)

Netbook Weights Compared

For those always on the go, ultraportables and netbooks are a godsend. While ultraportables have full-sized keyboards, larger screens, and faster processors though, they also sport a much heftier price tag! Netbooks are generally priced at less than $500 and can perform basic everyday functions, including checking e-mail and surfing the Internet and preparing documents. The downsides to netbooks are that they have relatively smaller screens, keyboards, and processors.

Here is a comparison of the weights of some common netbooks in the market right now:



Acer Aspire 10.1”

2.9 lbs

Asus Eee PC 1000HE

3.2 lbs

Dell Inspiron Mini 10”

2.6 lbs

HP Mini 2140 (w/ 6-cell battery)
