Acer Aspire One D150 10.1″ LCD 1.6GHz Netbook Review


08.07.2009

It has been a while since I last got my hands on a netbook, but this one is really welcomed. Here is the Acer Aspire One D150 which is a netbook like all other netbooks. At first I was really excited when I saw a netbook, but now the fire has kinda stopped. Well, let’s get down to business and say that the Acer Aspire One D150 netbook features a 10.1-inch WSVGA Acer CrystalBrite TFT LCD which is a very bright screen with up to 262,000 colors, LED backlight, and 1024 x 600 pixels.

There is nothing much to say about the screen. It’s very bright indeed, and almost sunlight readable. All we can do is appreciate the LED backlight, but the rest is the same as at other netbooks. The Acer Aspire One D150 10.1″ LCD netbook is powered by an 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor N270 which is basically the same processor used at all other netbooks so nothing unusual here.

The Acer Aspire One D150 10.1″ LCD 1.6GHz netbook features WiFi 802.11b/g, 1GB of DDR2, 160GB SATA HDD, Intel GMA 950 graphics card, Mobile Intel 945GSE Express Chipset, and Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition SP3. Again, nothing unusual here. Everybody knows how “good” Windows XP performs, while WiFi is a must at a netbook. Also 160GB HDD is too much, and a smaller SSD would have been better.

The Acer Aspire One D150 10.1″ LCD 1.6GHz netbook measures 10.3 x 7.3 x 1.3-inch, while weighing 2.9 lbs. I know I’m repeating myself, but nothing unusual with the measurements either. This netbook is small, compact, and lightweight which means that it’s perfect.

The Acer Aspire One D150 10.1″ LCD 1.6GHz netbook features a 6-in-1 memory card reader, integrated Acer CrystalEye webcam, VGA port, 2 x built-in stereo speakers, built-in microphone, HD audio support, 3 x USB 2.0 port, 3.5mm headphone jack, microphone jack, RJ-45 Ethernet port, DC-in jack, and an 84 key keyboard. Do I have to say nothing unusual one more time? I guess not, but we have to appreciate the integrated webcam for video conferencing.

The last feature that we have to underline at the Acer Aspire One D150 10.1″ LCD 1.6GHz netbook is the 6-cell Li-ion battery which provides up to 6 and a half hours of battery life. In order to manage 6 hours, you will have to limit your consumption very much by setting low brightness, and playing no sounds among other special techniques.

The Acer Aspire One D150 10.1″ LCD 1.6GHz netbook is available in three colors: Black, Blue, and Red. I recommend the Blue hue as I like Blue.
