Great deal but as usual N.Ireland are treated unfairly. When are people going to realize that it costs the same to send a package anywhere in UK including N.I. using Royal Mail.
#2
These come by courier not Royal Mail - I guess tje courier is cheaper than RM so that is why they use them. It is the same for me in Aberdeen with companies like Ebuyer - an extra £5 for living here.

Anyway, great deal - a year ago this would have been an amazing deal but now it seems more ordinary. It is a lot of computer for £130. My wife has the Acer ssd and no problems with it at all. I am not convinced that I would choose a 16 ssd over say a 120 normal drive but I am part dinosaur.
#3
This looks really good!

Can anyone recommend this deal or a similar one, I have a budget of around £150 for a net book - just wanna surf on the go - will this also accept an unlocked dongle too? thanks

Look on ebay argos at this one 360276817230. It is in your budget, it is easy to add another gig of memory if needed, a gig costs £10-15. it is also hackinsotshable if that is your thing! It has a bigger screen than the ACER and a "real" hard drive (not SSD) but the rest of the spec is much the same. I have the Wind 100 and it is a great machine.

Thanks AberdeenDad for the recommendation! :thumbsup:
#7
Nice price, but slower than a blonde woman trying to figure out fractions. Quite solid build quality though, and really good for throwing into your bag and taking on holiday with you. Hot from me.
#8
Is this better or worse than the Aspire One deal for £150 I got a while back?
#9
Good deal for a "pack and forget" occasional use internet machine. However, I do not have large hands and even then I struggle to use these 9" netbook keyboards.
#10
I don't know if this is relevant but the factory shop sell Asus Netbooks with 120gb hdd and xp ce for £99.99
#11
Great notebook if you have an external HDD, the only gripe I have with these is the wireless internet connection is naff when running from the battery

I have no trouble using the A150 (same keyboard), though obviously the keys are slightly small. Acer keyboards are amongst the better offered on netbooks, and you can of course plug in another keyboard while not mobile.

£32 on eBay buys you a battery pack which will last 8 hours or so - but it is of course physically bigger than the one provided.

Dump XP and put Ubuntu on it - bang up to date, comes with things like OpenOffice and Firefox, and of course free.

These things are let down by the slowness of their SSD unfortunately. (The capacity isn't such an issue as there are two slots for SD cards.) And the power lead has failed in two places on mine - at each end. So treat it gently. This compares with my 2004 laptop whose power lead gets tripped over regularly with no ill-effects.

I recently ordered items from ebuyer when they had the free delivey offer and they came by parcel force. Delivery which I would normally be charged alot extra for living in Northern Ireland which parcel force does not charge anything extra for!
#16
my mate has this, LinuxMint runs pretty well with it. can't put anything other than linux on it though.

Just because ParcelForce doesn't charge extra to deliver to NI doesn't mean that other couriers don't charge less not to deliver to NI. In other words, it could still have cost them more to ship the goods to you in NI than to the UK mainland.

Ahh yes, the power lead broke on mine too, had to re solder the end on twice now. OK if you know what youre doing but if you are a bit useless with stuff like that it can be added maintenance in the future

I use Ron's Tiny XP and my Aspire One runs like lightning...

+1 for the Tiny XP. I've a pair of Aspire Ones that run great on it.

If you're reasonably handy you can upgrade the RAM on these to 1.5Gb and even better, if you're competent with a soldering iron its not a tough job to swap the SSD for a 2.5" HD.

A great job for flights/holidays :thumbsup:

and even better, if you're competent with a soldering iron its not a tough job to swap the SSD for a 2.5" HD.



I thought the SSD models (A110) only have enough internal space to fit 1.8" HDDs?
Or is there an elaborate tardis mod I don't know about? :thinking:
#22
I run Tiny7 on mine, a cut down version of Win7.
Was a bit slow, though no worse than Ubuntu.
Then I found out about a program called flashfire, it speeds up the SSD no end.
Goes from totally off to a web browser in under a minute!

With this setup the netbook is totally useful web browsing device, making this a hot deal for me!

with all due respect living on an island means higher prices whatever the counter argument.

You're right - it will only take a 1.8" drive and then only one with the right connector I believe.

And a right pain if you need to saw open the sealed power supply to do so... Shame it's let down by this because I have no other complaints about the machine's quality.

Read the thread - I have already explained how much it will cost you to get better battery life, should you want it. If it had 8 hours of battery life it would cost more and be bigger and heavier.

It's a reasonable concern, for this price though can't complain. With regard to your earlier post regarding Ubuntu, it's a very decent OS, one for the more experienced user though. Fine for n00bs until things go wrong and they do go wrong easily. Linux is still a geeky OS, it's at its most mature and user friendly with Ubuntu, just about worth ago now for the average user, as long as they aren't prone to fiddling.
#29
It's far easier to use than Windows - have you tried installing things with the Software Centre? Or seen how slick the updater is? Or thought about the lengths you have to go with Windows to protect yourself? I think you are confusing unfamiliarity with geekiness.

It's not the slightest bit geeky; it merely has the power under the bonnet to allow one to unleash one's inner geekiness. If anyone doesn't believe me, try a live version - you've nothing to lose but your download bandwidth.
#30
I have the 8gb version of this and the SSD does hinder it a great deal. I dual boot nLited XP and xPUD. When using XP I run portable apps of an SD card, so as to leave the SSD for the pure use of the OS. For most people xPUD will probably have what they require anyway as it has firefox, mediaplayer, pdf viewer, notepad. You can also add open office, skype and dropbox.
#31
This is recommended to speed up the 8GB version. Is the 16GB SSD faster to begin with, I wonder?

Thanks for that but only paid £99 for the netbook so not worth spending more. Both my solutions work well enough anyway.:thumbsup:
#33
Lucky i just sold one on fleabay for £170!

FYI. fan noise is pretty loud and annoying. u need to google a fan control app to control.
Battery life 3 bhrs usually u can manage 1.5hrs surfing in balanced mode.

if u r on a budget then this netbook will do. i paid for a £200 netbook asus 1005p recent hotdeal, which has a better battery stated 11 hrs managed 8 hrs.

Netbooks are so portable, they normally used outside of home so you will need it to run for as long as u can.

Or pay £32 for an 8-hour battery from eBay (plus you still have the original)...

It only stays friendly whilst things work. I had to compile a driver to get my ethernet card to work on a desktop I bought. On my venerable Dell D600 with a supported Broadcom wifi card Network Mangler goes into a lengthy connecting loop before giving up the ghost. Others on the Ubuntu forums have the same problem with other hardware. It worked until release 7.x, then something broke and now nobody can fix it.

Superficially, Ubuntu is aping Apple's sleekness, but it is still the same hobbyist mess under the hood. Geeks will love it. I used to love messing with it. Now life's too short.

Absolutely - but exactly the same can be said about Windows.

An average user will usually be able to find some one to fix their difficult problem for them, with Linux you're largely on your own. I don't disagree that Ubuntu is the easiest Linux so far and I'd give it a cautious recommendation to selected clients, whilst others I tell them to stay away, that's if they even knew what it is. In balance many people are using 'locked' down versions of Linux very successfully possibly the one most people here would recognise is Android.

My mum can work it and my granny.
If you know someone who can't work Ubuntu then I'd bet the farm that they'd have just as many (ok, more) problems with Windows.

[FONT=Verdana]There is a lot of hints, tips, guides and recommendations for supporting this model of netbook over at the Acer Aspire One User Community & Forum.

Acer Aspire One User Forum • Index Page
http://www.aspireoneuser.com/forum/

In addition to that you can install a 2.5" SATA hard drive into this model of netbook [COLOR=Navy]BUT[/COLOR] it would kill of any warranty you would have with it along with you needing to have technical skills & access to various tools.

http://www.theacerguy.com/2009/01/aspire-one-a110-25-sata/

I covered this on a previous deal thread for an 8GB SSD model. It's interesting as it does appear to work based upon reports from the Acer Guy but also other people who have done it.

Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:
