Acer D257

Acer has been cranking out cheap mini laptops under 300 dollars (~Rs 15,000) from the past few years and Aspire One D527 is no different. However, with the D527, they have gone one step ahead pricing it at 250 dollars (< Rs 12,500). Despite the low price tag, the company managed to pack in Atom N570 dual core processor that runs at 1.66GHz clock speed.


This means performance of it is going to be much better than the single core mini laptops like Acer D260 and Asus 1011px. Other than the dual core processor, specs are pretty much standard (which is not a bad thing by any means). Graphics department is handled by Intel GMA 3150 graphics that couples with the dual core processor to renders up to 720p content easily.


Battery life is just 4 hours but the small 3 cell battery is to blamed for that. This is the chief reason, we still think Acer D270 is the best mini laptop from this company right now.
