Aspire One D250 Euro debut

The first market the Aspire One D250 will likely be available in is Europe, as the system now has its own product page on Acer's European website. The 10.1-inch netbook was first spotted in February, and passed through the FCC earlier this month. The page reveals official specs for the sub-2.5lb, one-inch thick netbook, which uses Atom N270 or N280 processors and supports 3G broadband. Standard RAM is 2GB, while permanent storage consists of a 160GB hard drive preloaded with Windows XP Home.

The display handles resolutions up to 1024x600; other specs include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a multiformat card reader and a 0.3-megapixel webcam, plus three USB 2.0 ports, VGA output, an Ethernet port and audio in/out jacks. The touchpad supports multi-touch inputs, while the keyboard is 89 percent the size of a standard PC's.

The standard battery is a 2,200mAh three-cell rated at 3.15 hours of life, but can be supplanted by a 4400mAh six-cell unit rated at 6 hours, or a 5200mAh six-cell option capable of 7.5 hours. With the six-cell battery, weight rises to just under 2.8lbs. The D250 should be available in red, blue or black, but despite the product page, pricing and a release date have not been announced.
