10.1-inch Acer Aspire One Review – Part 1

Acer Aspire One 10-inch On Friday, I gave my first impressions of the new 10.1″ Acer Aspire One, so it’s on to part 1 of the review.

The model reviewed is the Acer Aspire One D150-1165 (aka AOD150-1165). This is the same D150-1165 available from Amazon.com, however it came with a larger-than-standard battery (explained here).

– 1 GB of RAM
– 160GB Toshiba HDD
– Windows XP Home

These measurements are without the batteries
Width: 10.1″ AAO (10.25″/260mm) – Original 8.9″ AAO (9.75″/247.7mm)
Depth: 10.1″ AAO (7.375″/187mm) – Original 8.9″ AAO (6.625″/168.3mm)
Height: 10.1″ AAO (1.25″/31.8mm) – Original 8.9″ AAO (1.25″/31.8)
Weight: 10.1″ AAO: 2.25 lbs (1kg) – Original 8.9″ AAO: 1.95lbs (0.88kg)

The first part of the review is going to cover a physical comparison to the original 8.9″ Acer Aspire One.

  1. I was about to buy the 8.9 and now after reading your comments I’m very torn~ Size and weight was an issue for me since it’s only being used for emails and internet on the go.It seems as though “the guts” are basically the same on the 10in. accept for larger battery (if in fact they are all going to be shipped with it). Are the keys bigger on the 10? If they were both the same is one keyboard more comfortable than the other? Do the changes in the location on jacks etc on the 10in make a difference? It’s very hard to find in the stores (the 8.9) so it’s really a “blind item” I’d be buying.
    Do you think that the smaller one’s price will go down once the 10in. is out in March.? Will I hate myself if I buy to tomorrow? LOL
    Please help …thanks!

  2. The keyboard is the same size. The main difference in that area is that mouse buttons have changed from the sides to below the touchpad.

    The biggest difference is that the 10-inch is much easier to upgrade. That’s more important to me, since the 8.9″ was difficult to upgrade as far as memory and HDD (and the 8.9″ was limited to 1.5GB).

    Changes in the jacks – not a problem. The 8.9-inch should be dropping in price in more areas here in the next few weeks if it hasn’t already, down to the $299 level.
