WRONG! - because the old one at the old price is now expired.

Looking for the same config and price, but with the 120GB HDD. Good deal though. But I will wait for a similar ASDA deal.

Heat from me.
#5
Great price, great little machine.

But its the 8GB SSD version so whilst its fine for Linux which it comes with, forget putting XP on this. Its WAY too slow. Trust me, I did two of them for friends and its painfully slow.
#6
These 8.9" screens are old hat now, 10" ones are the way to go. Low memory, and the small 8GB SSD drive make this all a very cold deal.

Linux...Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

17" are even better!

The whole point of a netbook is to get it into the minimum sized package. The old 7" eeepc was a revelation. The 8.9" getting a decent resolution into the same form factor was a real advance.

10" gives you no extra resolution. Just a bigger package that doesn't fit into your pocket or displaces something from your rucksack. 10" is just bloatware IMHO. Sign that suppliers are losing the plot. Netbooks and laptops serve different markets. Don't confuse the two!

Voted hot!

Ive got the 1gb RAM 120gb hdd version Acer Aspire One running windows vista ultimate with a £10 class 6 8gb sdhc card running 4gb as readyboost. Runs perfectly fine dont know why they dont offer vista on the higher specd ones.

They are only £35 more at comet than this and I'd be tempted for the extra RAM and HDD space.

What an absolute load of rubbish. Even the most recent range of the UK's best-selling netbook (Acer Aspire One) come with an 8.9" screen, so calling them "old hat" is ridiculous. It's all about choice - yes, plenty of manufacturers are producing 10.5" screens, but there's no indication that they are replacing 8.9" screens - they're still available for those who prefer a smaller (and therefore more portable) solution.

As for this being a "very cold deal" - can you please let me know where I can get a similar spec netbook for less than £164.55?

I await in a flabbergasted hush for your presentation of a 10.1" N280 160GB full size KB 6 cell XP'ed version for £164.99

UNTIL THAT DAY , HOT!

I have the 120GB version and have upgraded to 1.5GB RAM but would love to try in with XP rather than LINPUS. Have you installed a cut down version of XP? If so, how did you go about it?

The Aspire One is an excellent machine BTW - would suggest it everytime! I paid 180 for mine from Amazon about 1 month ago.

Well, I don't know if you fancy a bit of light reading, but just about every method of getting XP / Vista / Win 7 onto an AAO is somewhere in this thread:-

And it has an enterprise-class office suite built in - for nothing.

I haven't - I'm still using the Linpus installation. I've put Firefox 3 and OpenOffice 3 on it, and recompiled the X-server to enable dithering (which stops the contour effects so graphically demonstrated by the default screensaver images!). I don't see much point in installing Xubuntu but if you want to go to those lengths you might as well put on Ubuntu Netbook Remix or whatever it's called.
#18
Replaced one of these with a Samsung NC10 because I couldn't get on with Linux and the battery life is quite short.

Although the Samsung has a 10" screen it is actually just about the same physical size as the Acer (which has a huge bezel around the screen) - albeit a little thicker at the back due to the six cell battery.
#19
Larger bezel makes for more robust screen of course, and smaller screen takes less backlight power.

I love the simple linux install. Whats not to like?
It boots up in under 20 secs, Firefox works beautifully. Picasa works. Abiword is great for word processing (snappier than openoffice) and no risk of virus / trojans. Plus VLC and MythTV handle all my multimedia needs.

I use it to watch TV in bed or in the kitchen (using MythTV). If you are new to linux, don't give up within a few days, as you will miss out.

There is a website called http://macles.blogspot.com/ which I used to change things around a bit, such as updating to firefox 3.0 and openoffice 3.0.

I will switch to Ubuntu in the future, when it can be installed without any need to fiddle around. (hopefully next month 9.4)
