Acer Begins Shipping Dual-Core Aspire Units

The Acer Aspire One D255 dual-core PC is now shipping in the U.S. The unit unfortunately doesn’t include the dual-boot Android/Windows operating system option that the Taiwanese version carries, but it does come pre-loaded with Windows 7 Started Edition and offers a 250GB HDD.

For $400 users also receive a 1.5GHz N550 dual-core processor, that’s in comparison to the 1.66GHz single-core processor offered on their other netbook options in the Aspire lineup.

A 10.1? display with 1024×600 pixels of resolution, 1GB DDR3 RAM and a six cell battery that they say will give you eight hours of battery life. The unit also offers a rather standard weight of 2.8 pounds.
