Acer Aspire One AOD257

Acer seems determined to see how much it can undercut its competitors netbook prices. The company has consistently cranked out netbook after netbook for $300 or less over the past few years. But now Acer might have outdone itself with the launch of the Aspire One AOD257. It has a list price of $270, but you can pick one up from Amazon for $249.

That makes the Aspire One AOD257 the cheapest 10 inch netbook available in the US with a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N570 dual core processor.

On the down side, the $250 model only has a 3 cell battery which is good for up to 4 hours of battery life. If you want to opt for a model with a 6-cell battery you’ll have to move up to the $300 version of the netbook.

  1. i have one…it sucks that you cant upgrade anything. just chatted with acer support and although they techie found the information in their system, he would not share it with me….support is a joke

  2. It’s actually a pretty nice device, but not much has changed over the 255/260. I have an unboxing for the black unit with Linpus Meego on my site and will also post a review soon, just in case you’re interested 😉

  3. Acer has a netbook selling for $229 on Amazon.com. Secondly, are you going to start asking netbooknews for royalty fee? I’ve just noticed that when you fart, it’s getting published there. 🙂 Hey I suppose it’s one big happy family! Keep up the great work.

  4. One issue this model has is that it’s non-trivial to do the inevitable “upgrade the netbook up to 2gb of RAM” upgrade; unlike the ASUS models (which, yes cost more), you can’t just remove a panel from the bottom.

    1. So has anybody actually upgraded this to 2GB and can share the process, I’ve Googled a bit and can’t find any nice easy to follow directions 🙂
