SYDNEY, NSW: Acer is hitting the digital runway with the attractively designed Aspire One D260 netbook. The “small, smart and sexy” design encases dual-boot operating systems with Windows 7 and Google Android.
The systems allow for fast and easy connectivity, meaning users can access web-based applications in fewer than 15 seconds from powering on, according to Chris Osborne, senior product manager, Acer Computer Australia.
The Aspire One D260 measures at less than 1 inch and weighs roughly 1 kilogram, making it thinner and lighter than most other models in its class. It features a 10.1-inch display with resolution of 1024×600 pixels and comes in 4 different colours.
The interior design highlights optional Bluetooth 3.0 support, Wi-Fi technologies, and integrated Acer Crystal Eye webcam. The rest of the netbook’s features are fairly standard, with a 250GB hard drive, three USB 2.0 ports, VGA output, audio in and out, and a multicard reader.
The Aspire One D260 with Windows 7 Starter and Google Android is available from all leading retailers from RRP $449.
