Acer has begun selling the Acer Aspire One D250 in the Philippines for 23,995 Pesos, or about $508. That’s about the same price that the computer was fetching in pre-orders in Japan a few weeks ago, so while I haven’t seen any US or European pricing yet, I’m guessing the D250 won’t cost more than $500 in the western hemisphere.
The Acer Aspire One D250 has a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 processor. It sports 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth, and either a 3 or 6 cell battery. In other words, it’s a lot like the previously released Acer Aspire One D150, but with a slightly faster processor. Electronic Pulp reports that Acer will begin phasing out the D150 to replace it with the D250, much the same way that Asus has replaced the Eee PC 1000H with the 1000HE, a remarkably similar computer featuring minor upgrades like a faster processor, new keyboard, and better battery.
Somebody needs to get up to speed on this one.I bought a D250 on
May 10 at a Walmart in Oceanside,Ca for $298 plus tax.
The D150 was shipped to the Philippines back in March with the Atom N280. Here’s a shot of the box with specs.
I believe there was a manufacturing/packaging anomaly. In the whole batch of shipments, all colors (Blue, White, Black) had N280 except the RedRed color netbook which had N270 in it. When they checked the whole delivery, all red netbooks had N270 yet the others are N280. Even the retailers were surprised when I pointed this out to them the first time I bought the unit 2 months ago.
I don’t understand what all the Fuzzis about. It is available in Germany since two weeks over amazon for 382 Euros, in all four colors…
Shipping in Norway as well, 512$/377euro (409/302 without vat):
