£199 Acer Aspire One D255 Netbook, 1.66GHz with 10.1 Inch Display

Just 1 inch thin and feather-light at 1.25kg, the Acer D255, is the ultimate take-me-with-you device.

Thanks to built-in WiFi you can connect to public ‘hot spots’ without cables, with the 10.1” CrystalBrite LCD widescreen bringing the internet to life. An integral webcam also ensures you keep in touch with family and friends.

There’s a generous 160GB hard drive for all your files, photos and music, and you can add more storage space by simply plugging in an SD card (not included).

The Live Update feature automatically keeps your Aspire One up-to-date with downloads and patches, ensuring it’s always at peak performance.

Designed with travel in mind, netbooks are significantly smaller and lighter than regular laptops, making them easy to carry around in a small bag or by hand. They’re a much cheaper option and incredibly easy to use thanks to the simplicity of the pre-installed software. The Acer Aspire One D255 Netbook can be purchased from John Lewis and it comes with two years warranty.
