Acer Aspire One D257 Meego Specs and Info
|At 222 Euros for a top-end netbook platform, this Meego edition saves around 60 Euros over the Windows Home 7 Starter version, a differential that's larger than the cost of the Windows 7 Starter License.
2GB of RAM is also included (the WIndows 7 version comes with only 1GB) which hints that this device may be either subsidised or a loss-leader for Acer.
It's unclear if any application store is included or whether Acer will be providing updates as Meego progresses.
Battery life is expected to be as good as the Windows version which users are reporting to have 7hrs of life.
