This particular one comes with windows 7 starter which can use only 1 processor, not 2! Also, they tend to come with slower hard drives(5400 RPM's) and only a gig or 2 of ram. While Acer states that their netbooks wont support more than 2 gigs, they actually do if you install the right operating system. Upgrade to atleast windows 7 home premium, a 4GB DDR31066 RAM cartridge, and utilize "Ready Boost" and your netbook will be blazing fast. Ready boost is a feature of windows 7 that uses solid state (flash memory) as if it were RAM. Windows does this by caching frequently used data to this solid state memory (either a USB flash drive or a SD card like the ones you use for your camera. Skip the Flash drive annd get a Sandisk SD ultra card from amazon. Theyre cheap, costing only $10 or $20. Buy one that supports atleast 20MB/s data read rates. The point is this, if you people want your netbooks to be fast, you have to make them fast. Ditch the RAM, hard drives, and the windows 7 starter. If you want a super fast netbook then purchase a seagate Momentus XT ( you can look up the specs online), they are lightening fast. The Acer netbooks are powerful, its the peripherals and the os that hamper them. Besides if you want to use a dual core and take advantage of windows 7 features, you need atleast windows 7 home premium or windows 7 professional (this one supports ready drive!).
I finally bought a purple Gateway LT2804u which is the dual core Gateway equivalent of AOD257. Gateway was bought by Acer so they have very similar specifications but the Getway doesn't freeze. It is very responsive and works perfectly while networking. It is also very quiet and much more attractive than the AOD257 models.
However. Acer is actively hostile to the idea of user-upgrades. First of all, there is the crippleware of Windows 7 Starter Edition. Very, very bad OS that throttles what capability your machine may have. Of course all the netbook makers are apparently in collusion with Microsoft to make that experience so painful you will quickly upgrade to Home Premium. Grit your teeth and Do that.
Next, upgrade the RAM. However, Acer requires you to practically disassemble the whole netbook: remove 18 screws!!! AND the keyboard to get at the RAM. There are videos of how to do this on the web, but it is still very scary and dangerous. Same thing if you decide to upgrade the hard disk or replace it with an SSD.
The Toshiba netbook is at least as good as the Acer, and upgrades require removing a single screw to get at the RAM. Should have gone with the Toshiba.
