Looking at the Ion netbooks...would like some info please

okay so i just bought an acer aspire one D255E for a reasonable $250 and i really like it...bought it mainly to store music photos and videos on the 250gb hdd as well as general computing and work. Now I have been doing research on what are some neat/cool things to do on a netbook and i keep running into people talking about how the "Ion" netbooks are the way to go, especially for netbook gaming.

now I'm not using this netbook primarily for gaming...but the option would be nice....can someone tell me what the fuss about these Ion graphics is all about? I'm scoping out these Ion netbooks and I've found some starting at $300, so the extra $50 would be well worth it for me, but if anyone has any suggestions, please do tell any input is greatly appreciated.

  1. Hello gibbey531;

    Nvidia Ion and AMD Fusion C-50 / E-350 CPUs/graphics would be options you want to look at.
    Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150 your D255E graphics
    NVIDIA ION 2 graphics review
    AMD Radeon HD 6250 graphics review C-50
    AMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics review E-350

    Just be aware that all these graphics options are still at the very low end of 3D gaming ability.
