Sure, the dual core version of the Acer Aspire One AOD255 was briefly available from the Home Shopping Network in August, but now Acer has officially launched the netbook. It’s available for pre-order from Amazon, and Acer has put out a shiny new press release listing the netbook’s specs.

The Aspire One AOD255 is available with either a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 single core processor or a 1.5GHz dual core Atom N550 chip.

The laptop weighs about 2.5 pounds and measures about 1 inch thick. It has 802.11b/g/n WiFi, a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1.3MP camera, 1GB of DDR3 memory and a 250GB hard drive. The Aspire One AOD255 comes with Windows 7 Starter Edition and Microsoft Office Starter 2010. The laptop is available in red, black, brown and aquamarine.

The Aspire One AOD255 runs $329.99, making it one of the cheapest dual core netbooks available.
