Externally, the D255 looks little different to other recent models in the Aspire One range. Like most netbooks on the market, it has a glossy lid with a matte finish around the keyboard. In the UK, it’ll be available in four colours (black, red, white and brown). Although the finish is a little plasticky, the netbook actually feels quite solid when you pick it up. With the lid shut, it’s quite thin at 24mm. It’s light, too, weighing just 1.25kg.
