Acer D150

Acer D150 is a cheap enough netbook that is powered by the ancient N270 processor. Overall a good 10.1-inch netbook packing a keyboard with good tactile feedback.

We were also very curious about how the successor of the up-till-now worldwide most sold netbook would look like and especially where it’s going to position itself in comparison to its, in the meantime numerous, competitors. Now the time has come and our overall impression turns out somewhat divided.

On the one hand, Acer delivers a very compact and also robust chassis, but for which only plastic components have been applied effectively on the surface. The rivals often show cases of magnesium and aluminum parts. No question, the stability of the Acer D150 is right, but the material impression of genuine metal is something else. Imitating a brushed aluminum structure at the wrist rests doesn’t help here very much, either.
