We compared this portable PC to all the other laptops with a full-size keyboard and we think the EliteBook Folio 9480m, or the Pavilion 17-f030us both from HP or the Asus D550CA which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media and we think the Satellite Pro L850, and the Satellite Pro C70-B both from Toshiba or the HP EliteBook Folio 9480m which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this Acer laptop is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the T420s (£972.00) (SSD and higher rated), or the S540 (SSD and higher rated) both from Lenovo or the Fujitsu LifeBook E554 (SSD and higher rated).

At 8 hours, the Aspire One D255E has a fairly typical battery life compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years.

If this notebook PC battery life is not long enough for you then you might want to consider the Pavilion x360 11-k064na (8.15h), or the Pavilion x360 11-k063na (8.15h) both from HP or the Lenovo X1 Carbon (8.2h) which also has a higher rating.
