After all the testing is done and my time with the Acer Aspire One D250 is over, I can sum up my thoughts about the machine in one word - meh! - There is nothing in particular that is wrong with the D250. It works well and offers everything that you would want in a netbook. After putting my sweaty mitts on a plethora of notebooks and netbooks over the last few weeks, I simply want more.
A user looking to buy their first netbook will like the D250. One big plus for the machine is you can walk into many Walmart stores, pick the thing up and take it home. I honestly think the fantastic retail availability for this thing is the reason the Aspire One line is tops in the netbook market.
As I said, there is nothing wrong with the D250. The rig has a nice keyboard, a nice screen and nice performance. The problem for me is that the D250 does nothing to set itself apart from the pack other than perhaps having a nicer box. If you already have a netbook and are wanting to upgrade to something nicer, unless yours really sucks, the D250 is probably more of the same. If you don't own a netbook and want one, the D250 is in all honesty a great option, as are many of the other netbooks on the market.
