Packaging and the Aspire One D250
The first thing you notice about the D250 when you start fiddling about with it is that Acer uses a glossy box that is much fancier than most netbook packages. That is hardly a feature mind you, but it's a nice box nonetheless.
Pry the little netbook out of its box and you get a look at the undeniably attractive little machine. My review unit was blue, but black, red, or white versions are available as well.
This is a shot of the back of the machine. Near the bottom of the shot is the 3-cell battery my test unit came with for a nice and sleek profile. Larger batteries will change the looks of the rear.
This shot shows the right side of the D250 where you find the memory card reader, two USB ports, the power port and the Kensington lock port.
The left side of the machine crams in several things including a heat vent, RJ-45 port, VGA out, USB port and the mic and headphone jacks.
The front edge of the netbook is plain with nothing to see but the power LED and a switch that turns Wi-Fi on and off.
Open the lid and you get a glimpse at the keyboard of the machine, which offers exactly what you expect to find on a quality netbook.
The LED backlit 10.1-inch LCD has a glossy coating and if you read many of my reviews you know I don't care for glossy screens, but the D250's performs well, as we will see later in the review.
The 3-cell battery may be puny and offer less battery life, but if ultimate portability is what you are after the flush mount 3-cell may be the best option for you. Look at the thin profile of the D250 with the battery installed.
On the bottom of the machine there are several heat vents and intakes as well as the covers over the RAM, HDD and expansion slots.
