This netbook is the best value on the market at this time. Other netbooks that have the n550 come with W7 Starter and 1 GB of ram and cost $300+. If someone is going to change anything on their netbook, they are most likely going to upgrade the ram to 2 GB and upgrade Starter to W7 Home Premium. These upgrades cost $100+ as well as your time and energy. That brings the total cost of other netbooks over $400. This computer comes stock with 2 GB of ram and 64-bit W7 Home Premium and is less than $400 ($358 at the time)! You cannot find a better deal. This computer boots up from powered off in less than a minute and wakes up from sleep mode in 5 seconds or less. The advertised run time is 8 hours and I have actually found this to be achievable! If you are running lots of programs, it won't be, but if you are just surfing the internet and working in Word then you will experience great battery life. The screen has a nice matte finish so it doesn't have reflection issues. The side viewing angles though are not very good, but it isn't like you and your friends are going to be huddled around the computer trying to watch a movie. You are probably going to hook it up to a TV for that which you can do as long as the TV has a VGA (PC) cable connection. I hooked it up to my 55" Samsung LED TV and played an 720p movie. After fiddling with the aspect ratio a little bit it looked great! The film didn't skip at all. The keyboard is good for a netbook I think. It will take a little while to get used to the smaller layout, but it is sturdy and gives you plenty of feedback. I think the trackpad is excellent for a netbook. It is plenty wide and picks up on your fingers movements pretty well. The multi-gesture controls work well for zooming and scrolling. It is a very solid experience for the user.Read more ›

Recently Purchased this laptop from fry's same price as amazon but had to pay taxes which sucks! This one is loaded with specs for this price u cant go wrong battery lasts for quite a while would recommend!! To get better performance some friendly advice get ESET antivirus for it beacause it does not slow it down just make sure to uninstall the antivirus software that comes loaded on the netbook first before downloading ESET!

This is my review of the Acer Aspire AOD260-1270 10.1 in. For me, it was a no brainer to go with this netbook, mainly because I have been keeping my eye on ACER computers and heard good things about them. I was intrigued with the size of Netbooks. I have been looking for a Netbook for the last 6 months but they didn't seem to have all the things in them that I wanted. Then last week I saw the Acer 260 in Amazon, which fit the bill.
Firstly: I didn't like the fact that most Netbooks come with only ONE Gig of Ram memory and either 160gb or 250gb hard drive, a 3cell battery in some of them, the Windows 7 STARTER and so on. Like some one else had mentioned before, this Netbook has all the bells and whistles already built in, making it a great deal. I bought it mainly to use when traveling to check my email and log on to the Internet. The compatness and weigh of this unit is so much easier to cart around than my old laptop.

Now for a brief review of what I found. The quality built is tops and took me less than 20 minutes to get acquainted with it including registering the internet security. Wifi is quick, it found around 10 routers within seconds. The keyboard is very nice for not being a full size keybord (I wrote this review with it). The screen is just beautiful, afterall that's what you get with LED screen, and it is very thin. Love the Dual Core Intel, the 2 GB DDR3 Ram, 320 GB HDD (drive), Full Windows 7 Home Premium which I may upgrade to Professional later, and of course the 6 Cell battery which I have had running for almost 5 hours (unplugged) and as we speak, it shows to have around 49% left of power, another 5 hrs? maybe! As far as the Multi Gesture touch goes, well No Comment, as this is just a matter of taste. I like to use a wireless mouse. Is it perfect?

Acer got it right this time. The D260 just rocks! I have had two Acer mini computers, most recently the AOD255, that oneoverheated and locked up. The D260 is the best mini I've had. Is fast, low heat, good battery life. The features are just right. Thank you Acer. This is a good one.

I won't write too much on this netbook simply because there isn't much more to say than awesome. The screen is fantastic, the dual core really makes a difference when next to a single. The 2gb of ram is perfect. I had word, excel, and chrome open with 5 tabs and there was zero performance problems. Windows Home is a nice bonus. The storage is great, though I doubt I will fill it up as I am using this for internet and Microsoft Office. As stated in other reviews, I can watch Youtube, Hulu, and Netflix all full screen and it is flawless playback. As for battery life, if 6 hours is good for you, then this netbook is for you. If you like 8-14, look elsewhere. This has been a fantastic use of $358.

Oh, and I am a 22 year old male. While the Aquamarine may scare fellow guys away, please don't let it. It is way too great a deal to worry about color. Would you rather have a better looking computer or one that will do everything you want and at fast speeds? I chose the latter and have not regretted it for a second.
