Acer has one of the more popular lines of netbooks on the market with the Aspire one offerings. The company has a wide range of netbooks with different specifications and features inside to cater to the needs of different users. Tablets like the iPad may be talking away sales from netbooks, but there are still new offerings coming to market that consumers will like. Acer has a new machine today that has CPU options and nice features called the Aspire One AOD255 netbook.


The AOD255 can be had with two different Atom CPU options. One of the CPUs is a single-core N450 and the other is the newer dual-core N550 CPU. Both of the processors support DDR3 RAM and the netbook gets 1GB of RAM no matter the CPU you chose to start with. Acer says the netbooks are good for a full day of use on a single charge with a battery life claim of 8-hours per charge.

The netbook also has a 10.1-inch LED backlit screen that needs 22.2% less power than other screens Acer uses. Portability is a big deal with a netbook and AOD255 is only an inch thick and weighs 2.5 pounds. Other features include WiFi, a 1.3MP webcam and mic, and a 250GB HDD. The OS is Windows 7 Starter. The netbooks will ship this month with the N550 machine starting at $329.99 and the N450 starting at $269.99.
