Looks like dual core processors are all the rage these days, and even the iPad 2’s A5 processor has two cores. Well, how will this affect the way netbooks work? Not much, but manufacturers are also starting to get the hint that having two cores could eventually be the way where netbooks are headed, which is why the Acer Aspire One AOD255E will come with a dual core 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N570 processor, accompanied by a $330 price tag. Definitely a whole lot cheaper than an iPad 2, but much less cool, with a 250GB hard drive going for it, a trio of USB ports, Ethernet and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity and a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display to round things off. With Windows 7 Starter Edition as the operating system of choice and tipping the scales at around 2.76 pounds, this is pretty much what you would get from netbooks these days anyways.
