Product Review

From the moment you switch it on, the Aspire one is ready to go in just 15 seconds (with Linpus Linux Lite version). That's what we call a smart start. Once on, the interface is pure simplicity: a home screen divided into four areas that contain all the applications you need to stay connected, work, play, and organize your life on the road. And as your Aspire one is as unique as the way you use it, you can customize the applications on the home screen so that it's just right for you. Fast, simple and indescribably chic. That's your life with the Aspire one.

hot from me good find:thumbsup:

great find

Excellent price if your not afraid of pink, if you are a bloke and scared of buying pink then your a wuss.
#4
Great price if you can handle the colour :p. I bought one of the blue ones for £150 last year before the price of netbooks mysteriously rose. Then ditched Linux for XP, upgraded to 1.5gb ram and a 500gb hard drive :thumbsup:. Brilliant little device!, even handles 720p .mkv video.

Brilliant device. I setup one for my parents but ditched the Linpus Linux and installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix

Used to have to format and reinstall XP on their computer every 3-4 monthsbut thanks to Ubuntu, they can run all their software and I haven't had to support them at all so far. I did install XpGnome to make their life easier but that was it.

Why on earth did you have to format it ever 3-4 months? What was your old man going on? Pornotube every 5 seconds or something.

Excellent price but im not into pink.. I already got a blue one with 120gb running windows which I connect to my Full HD 32" and watch 720p Movies, Heroes, Lost etc etc

VERY POWERFULL FOR A NETBOOK!!

HOT HOT HOT!!

[FONT=Verdana]But my 12 year old nephew would kill me if I bought him one...of course I am evil at heart! :p

Agree it's a good deal but would be handy to have at least one other colour choice available though.

[FONT=Verdana]The Linux distribution that it comes bundled with isn't that great but you can download other more mainstream ones i.e. Ubuntu, Kbuntu, etc, etc - alternatively you can install Windows XP/Vista/7 onto it and even also Mac OS X, so you can run it as a Hacintosh.

A good place for guides, software links and information from fellow Acer netbook owners is the Acer Aspire One User Community & Forum - the link is listed below.

Got the blue one but its ruined by the Linux operating system which wont accept my BT Internet mobile dongle and null and voiding the reason I got the damn thing in the first place :(
I have NO idea or am computer savy enough, to try to change the operating system and also dont wanna fork out for another windows licence when I already have 2 (PC and Laptop).So for me, IF you leave it with Linix its a "cold" if you're clever enough to change the OS and have a spare windows licence and software "kicking around" then its a "hot".

clever enough? It's hardly rocket science to pop in a windows CD/DVD and follow the instructions. :thumbsup:
#16
ive had my blue one for over a year now ..... its superb . i leave it at work so i can view hukdeals at lunch time - lol. ive left it totally standard and its razor sharp for speed. i use xp & windows 7 on my home pcs but am PERFECTLY happy with the linux so why change it if its not broken !!

er.."Mr Sarky"...I was told you have to take all evidence of Linux off first and re-format everything (all the drivers, software etc) before you can THEN install Windows...so unless I was told wrong, its not just a case of popping in a windows CD/DVD!!..oh, and you might like to know also that theres no actual DVD/CD drive ON this machine either!!!!!...

TBF, installing Ubuntu is a matter of answering about 5 or so straight forward questions (What time zone are you in etc) and then letting it run for 20 minutes while you watch Eastenders. It is super easy to do and there are a million and one tutorials online. I think people perceive it to be scary and difficult because its do with computers, when really its not.

If you have an external USB DVD drive you can just pop in an XP disc and reformat/install that way (I used my Xbox 360 HDDVD drive ;-)). It's very simple, just follow the on screen instructions and it does the rest. Alternatively there are tutorials to install XP via a USB memory stick. There are a couple of threads here on HUKD from past deals that have all the info you need ;-).

There's just one HDD. You format it, everything is gone. The WinXP/Vista/7 install will do it for you too.
Very easy, not something you need to be afraid of doing.

Thank you for your replies.I was told NOT to try to do this unless you were pretty knowledgable on that sort of thing..as, like you say, there is a disclaimer after any instructions I've seen about things going wrong!!!.BUT you all make it sound SO simple!!!.Perhaps I'll try to get hold of a cheap XP disc and give it a go, if its as simple as just putting in a disc!!!!...

I'd have used the "rolling eyes" smiley if I was trying to be sarcastic.

The point that I was making was that it's not difficult to install windows..i.e. you don't have to be a genius.

I accept that it's a bit trickier without a DVD drive but not a lot. It's still the same process once you can access the installation media.

Installing any OS is pretty straight forward. The tedious part is installing all the drivers and software afterwards. Especially when Windows requires a restart with everything you install. That is one aspect where Linux is superior, everything either comes on the disk or is fetched automatically from online. There is no having to go to a 101 sites to download everything you need manually.

[FONT=Verdana]The device drivers can be easily obtained from the Acer website but also you can install multiple selected software packages via the Ninite website - I use it routinely for helping out family, friends and clients.

[FONT=Verdana]Actually with the WinToFlash utility it is very easy to get a USB memory stick set-up for installing a Windows operating system onto a computer (that has USB boot-up support).

[FONT=Verdana]It sounds complicated but [COLOR=Navy]trust me it's very straightforward to do[/COLOR] - if you want to do this with your netbook then please let us know and we'll easily provide you help with getting it done.

You should also check out the Acer Aspire One User Community & Forum (I posted a link previously on this deal thread) as they'll have more information on this as well, especially from owners of Acer Aspire One Netbooks.

Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:[/FONT]

Great price, shame about the awful colour!

@jdr116, if you're willing to pay for postage plus £10 for my time, you can send your netbook to me and I'll take care of installing whichever operating system you desire, extra software and so on. PM me if you're interested.

Can cut down the 101 sites someone mentioned earlier to 1
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_one_150.html

Download each one of the files, they'll each appear as files you can run (same as 99% of software installs on Windows)

Then once you've formatted and installed Windows you run each one of the files and they'll recognise and install the drivers. You'll probably just need to click through the 'Yes I agree', 'Next', 'Next', 'Finish'

Then that's pretty much job done

[FONT=Verdana]Then the next step would be to install an antivirus package along with a firewall package as well (if your not keen on using the one bundled with Windows) - only that's in place proceed with downloading all of the operating system updates from via the Windows Update website.

After that proceed with installing any further software that you need to run on your netbook.

In one of the older threads someone had made a package of all the drivers you need and uploaded it to Rapidshare. If I can find the link I'll post it. As for a copy of XP you could always just download one of the stripped down custom versions from the internets ;-).

You can install Rons XP image. Fantastic rls for the Acer.
