For those still new to the Aspire One...

[size=3]Upgrading RAM[/SIZE]
Currently, all available models of the Acer Aspire (regardless of colour, HDD/SSD, 512Mb/1Gb RAM) have 512Mb hard-soldered on to the motherboard with only one available DDR2 SO-DIMM slot. There is a limit of 1Gb in that slot and so that means you can only have a maximum of 1.5Gb of total RAM. With the 1Gb Aspires, there is already a 512MB stick present in the slot and so you would waste a 512Mb stick in order to replace it with 1Gb one.

[SIZE="1"]Some say that it's possible to put a 2Gb stick in the slot and just end up with 2Gb total rather than 2.5Gb. However, others say that this is not possible due to a limitation Acer has put on the BIOS that they supply, which results in non-booting. The Intel chipset in use would normally support 2Gb but it is Acer that have blocked us users from being able to do so. If anyone has any links showing that a 2Gb stick does actually work and the AAOne can boot then please feel free to share the link (^_^)[/SIZE]


[size=3]Add more disk space with SSD models[/SIZE]
The SSD drive present in all Aspire Ones are 1.8inch IDE form factor and so can ony be upgraded with another SSD or normal HDD of the 1.8inch variety. The more common size is the 2.5inch and this will NOT physically fit inside the case of the Aspire One.

[SIZE="3"]Add more disk space with HDD models[/SIZE]
In the HDD models, the drive in use is a standard 2.5inch SATA type, much like those used in modern day notebooks and even the PS3. The underside of the casing on these models is different in that there is a *very* slight bulge in order to accomodate the slightly larger form factor. You can replace the drive with another 2.5inch SATA HDD drive of larger capacity or go for an aftermarket SSD if you want to spend as much (or more) on that than you did on the Aspire one itself :-D


[size=3]How easy is it to do any of the above?[/SIZE]
Not very. There are no easy to access compartments underneath the Aspire One to upgrade either the RAM or the HDD/SSD. If you want an idea of how far you need to go to do anything inside the Aspire One then have a quick scroll through this...

http://www.aspireoneuser.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=2673


[size=3]The other method of adding more disk space[/SIZE]
The Aspire One has two Secure-Digital slots, one on the left hand side and one on the right. The one on the left can be used to expand the storage already present on the Aspire One, regardless of whether it's the SSD or the HDD model. Insert an SD card into that slot and the available space will be combined with what's already available. Eg your SSD is down to 4Gb free and you added a 16Gb empty SDHC card. Your total available space then jumps up to 20Gb! I haven't actually used this feature myself yet so I can't say for sure how the OS decided where the files should go first, fill up the SSD/HDD first and then overflow to the SDHC or some kind of mix.

Yep - XP is why its hot from me

XP and the 160Gb HDD (as opposed to Linipus & 120Gb HDD) make it hor for me. OEM XP costs aroun £70 at the moment so makes it good value :thumbsup:
#6
Great price and lovely colour for my wee girl - pink daft !!

Heat and rep added

D :-)
#7
not a bad price
#8
Yeah NOT a bad price.... even for PINK !? ECK !?

how easy is it to change the battery
#10
Don't forget, the Lenovo is £10 cheaper (80gb hd, 1gb ram) but it's a much better notebook (Lenovo = former IBM).

The battery can taken off the back as you would do with any laptop. There's a variety of 3rd party replacements that'll give you longer running time than the <2hrs of the supplied battery.

I got the one linked below for my Aspire One and it lasts for a whopping 8 hours - great build quality too. Slight problem here though is that its like a Model T Ford - you can have whatever colour you like as long as its black.

To be honest I haven't seen a pink 3rd party battery for the AAO yet, although you could check the popular auction site/online tat bazaar for one.:thumbsup:

HOT HOT HOT :)

Think I might get the wife this.
#14
£200 -or something daft like £200.99 in my local Tesco. I was in looking for a AOA110.
#15
Around the £270 mark in PC World so a great deal, though now obsolete due to new 10" models. Voted hot.

Colour will limit its appeal though!
#16

How do you get the price down to £161.43? mine shows £169.98?? without delivery!

I made the mistake of buying from Acer Direct, otherwise know as BuyItDirect, otherwise known as...

Good luck if you have problems with it - like I did after the first week when it died completely - and bear in mind that phonecalls to their 'customer support' line can end up costing you.

I'd rather take my chances with ebay, which I did.

As an aside - if you do get one and are willing to invalidate your warranty (which I didn't) you might be interested in adding a touchscreen to this - pretty nice but they're about £50 on ebay which isn't cheap but looks fun.

DealExtreme sell those touch screens, can't remember the price though.

I bought my laptop from Acer Direct not really needed to speak to them other than to get a replacement invoice so I can send it back to Acer :-( (stupid cracked hinge..)

Read more carefully, 160GB and XP License make this an excellent deal.

The £50 voucher was for use with that laptop only so no reason for them to cancel for that reason, apart from I found on some sites the discount code was possibly only valid until end of last month. Still, not very good to cancel without reason, i've sent them a snotty email asking why!
