Last Thursday - October 7, 2010, Acer officially announced and rolled out Acer Aspire One D255 netbook in the Philippines.
"Acer is committed to empower the new breed of PC users in the Philippines
and improve their Internet and computing experience, whether it be in the home,
in school, at work or on the go,"
shares Manuel Wong, General Manager, Acer Philippines.
"The launch of our new lines of netbooks is testament to our success in delivering new product innovations ahead of the market."
On top of its new design identity and dual-boot functionality (Microsoft Windows 7 Starter Edition and Android 2.1 Eclair), Acer Aspire D255 dons a fresh set of technical specifications that will appeal to a wide range of Filipino netbook users. But the one thing that makes it special (as we've disclosed in a blog entry last month) is its dual-core netbook processor, the Intel Atom N550.
Dual-core Intel Atom N550 enables new levels of support for applications like games, as well as Adobe Flash technology for access to some of the Philippines' most visited Web pages including multimedia sites like YouTube and air ticket booking systems online. With these value-added functionalities, consumers can enjoy net access on the go with a far more responsive experience in the very same compact form factor of a netbook, DDR3 RAM support and the same outstanding battery life as what the single-core Intel Atom processor N450 delivers.

Acer Aspire One D255 is now available across the archipelago with a recommended retail price of Php 23,900 (which is clearly heftier that its $329 US price tag; Must be due to taxes and other subsidies.) Color options include Red, Black, Coffee Brown, White and Blue.
