Now we are getting into the benchmarks for the Aspire One D250. I will be using the normal netbook suite for this review including our battery life test using Battery Eater Pro along with our audio and video encoding tests.


The benchmarks for the D250 look very much like the benchmarks for the other netbooks I have tested, check them out below.


Battery Eater Pro


The first benchmark up for the D250 is Battery Eater Pro. As always, keep in mind that this is a synthetic test that allows for easy comparison, but real world results will vary. The paltry 3-cell battery in the D250 was no match for the larger batteries in most of the other netbooks and notebooks I have tested. Check out the image below for the full results.

Next up is our iTunes encoding test where I take a 12-track Stone Temple Pilots album and encode the files from MP3 to AAC and time the process with a stopwatch. Keep in mind that some of the early reviews used a different album and the image below is marked if the tests used were different.



Movie Encoding


Version and / or Patch Used: 9

Next up is our movie encoding test where I take the 1080p Wonder of Flight video and encode it to a DVD quality video suitable for streaming. Some of the machines in the chart below used a different test video, so be sure and look at the notations beside some machines before comparing results.
