Aspire One D257 - conveys your desire to communicate!


Elegant design, minimal style, thin size and all the applications you need to communicate online and stay operative all the time: Aspire One D257 is the perfect netbook for anyone who wants to stand out for their originality and elegance, at work and at leisure.

In a foyer waiting for a meeting, or in a lounge at happy hour, Aspire One D257 stands out right away with its refined hues of aquamarine, dark chocolate and seashell white. The design with concentric circles in relief expresses the versatility and elegance of water and at the same time represents the netbook’s main function:
allowing your desire to communicate to expand continually, towards all your contacts, like the ripples on a lake.

Aspire One D257 offers all the multitasking capacity and applications you need to reply to your colleagues’ emails while video calling a client with Skype and keeping an eye on your friends via Messenger and the social networks. And there’s no risk that you’ll be cut off by a dead battery: Aspire One D257 offers you all the autonomy you need to work online in perfect freedom.

Power and energy savings are guaranteed by dual-core Intel® Atom™ N570 and N550 processors which cut consumption while allowing you to perform any online task quickly thanks to DDR3 memory.
Video streams smoothly thanks to an integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 which supports Microsoft® DirectX® 9, while a big hard disc with a capacity of up to 500GB allows you to take your photos wherever you go.
The integrated multi-in-one card reader makes it easy to download your latest photos and share them with friends.

Aspire One D257 allows you to stay in contact with friends and colleagues through all kinds of connectivity operations. You can connect up with Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ technology or Fast Ethernet. And you can share multimedia files or documents quickly with Bluetooth® 3.0 + HS technology (optional). The Acer Crystal Eye webcam allows you to make full use of all Skype’s potential to communicate with your friends live, capture photos and videos or hold videoconferences with your business contacts.

Never again will you be forced to interrupt a video-call to search desperately for a power outlet! Aspire One D257 lasts up to 8 hours with a single charge, to ensure that you can carry on using it while travelling. It’s never a problem to recharge your Aspire One D257 at the end of the day, wherever you are: it comes with the innovative Acer MiniGo adapter which combines the cable with the power supply unit, weighs 34% less than an ordinary adapter and takes one third less time to charge. It supports an AC converter with interchangeable plugs, to make sure you always have the one you need.

Aspire One D257 is created specifically so that you can take it wherever you go, in any kind of bag: it’s ultra-slim, only 24 mm, and ultra-light, 1.20 kg for models with a 3 cell battery and 1.30 kg for models with a 6 cell battery.
Despite its compact size, Aspire One D257 permits optimal viewing of videos and websites with a WSVGA 10.1” display employing Acer CrystalBrite™ technology and a resolution of 1024x600 pixels. Its backlit LED ensures optimal yield and energy savings of 22.2% over conventional displays.
The keyboard has keys measuring 93% of a full-size keyboard for comfortable typing. It is also enriched with a bigger multi-gesture touchpad, perfect for scrolling through documents, rotating images, zooming and browsing the web with your fingertips.

Aspire One D257 is designed to ensure maximum environmental compatibility in accordance with the RoHS and WEEE directives. Moreover, the fact that you can work a whole day on a single charge and the presence of the Acer MiniGo adapter, the backlit LED and an energy-saving processor ensure conformity with Energy Star® requirements.
