Its grade A1 refurbished but ,maybe a good deal for someone
#2
Very cheap. What exactly does "Grade A1" mean? often wonder with refurbished stock exactly what the original problem was.

Am I right in assuming you can't upgrade these with a hard drive in place of the SSD? no space for one?
#3
same offer available trhough laptops direct (same company) with 2% quidco available ...
#4
Comes with a free slipcase too. Definitely a good deal.
#5
was a good deal, but min 9.95 delivery charge....

There's also a 0.95% credit card charge. Rip-off.

Same here thats why I asked for ant discount code.
#11
A slightly off topic question, if the netbook is faulty/ not function properly within 12 months, do you have to paid for postage to send it back for repair etc?
#12
I bought one of these form Comet when posted a few weeks ago new for £154. Nice little net book but not easy to set up for mobile broad band.
You have to do all the up dates on it which takes hours.
Then install the last one manually, which lets you use moble broadband. Then getting the settings is difficult. Vodafone insisted they did not support the lumix opp system. When I eventually got through to thier technical dept, whicht took some doing, I tried several settings and eventually got it to work. If anyone needs the settings please message me.

When a company gets large amounts or returns, it's normally a bad sign and good enough reason to avoid.

wer bouts ?

2nd one down ;) - to be honest, at £150, I'd get that one too; but these extra charges have totally put me off: you can get a new one for a similar price from a shop these days...tempted to go and quest for the Medion Sainsburys one tbh... - shame, as I'm sooo tempted!!
#18
If I remember correctly Grade A1 refers to things that have been returned by customers for reasons other than being defective, so the boxes have been opened and the item may have been used for by a customer for a few days/weeks, but the item is as close to new as possible.

I bought a camcorder that was A1 a few years back and the only difference between that and a regular new one was the packaging had been opened already.

Gah, I'm soooo tempted....

I've had my eye on these for a few weeks now, and I'm due to have £90 of comet/argos vouchers come through on the 31st, in addition to the £50 of vouchers I already have. But at £129/£149 this has made me think, especially if I can have it now....
#21
just watched the ram upgrade process - oh good lord!! why the hell is there no panel on the base to perform the upgrade?!! wish I'd gotten one of the asda ones...
#22
The ram upgrade is not as harrowing as it looks.Lived with linux lite for a while.but too limited,now with xp & quite a capable little machine.No problems with mobile broadband connectivity either.

Yeah, the ram upgrade is easy - the touchscreen mod is the scarey one :whistling:

Or maybe too many idiots buying it thinking it'll be as easy to use as a calculator they once owned in 1989 and shops that offer a no quibble warranty or shops that are full of dumb staff that accept returns because they have no idea about technology and when someone says "It's broke" they refund. All this adds up to multiple returns on PVRs, netbooks and other tech.

Good machine for the money but you really need to be on the move I'd say and want a really small box to make it worthy.

8gb drive and 512mb ram is not hot at all in my opinion. Fine for basic email and internet only, not a lot of use for much else.

That's why it's called a netbook :?

Can this basic linux version work with the O2 E160 broadband dongle?
The box only speak of windows and mac compatibility.

Indeed. I wonder how many people would moan about a bargain deal on a coffee maker because it doesn't make tea? :D

This really is an excellent price for what is one of the best selling netbooks. Linpus runs perfectly well on 512MB, and adequately fulfils the role of a small machine for surfing / emailing / messenging, and it's also perfectly happy running Open Office for reasonably light word processing/spreadsheet applications. Other flavours of Linux can be installed, as can XP, though it needs to be properly configured to run at a decent speed.

For someone that asked earlier in the thread, you can fit a 1.8" hard drive in place of the SSD (and many people have), but it involves the kind of work that would void the warranty e.g. cutting plastic mounting pillars off the base. For £129 this may be of less importance if you are confident in your own skills. You can even wedge a 2.5" drive in, but this involves a serious amount of surgery and soldering extra components and connectors to the mainboard. Lots of information available on modifying this excellent little machine at the Aspire One User forum

Yes, Linpus can be configured to work with the Huawei E160 dongle. There is a separate sub-forum on the Aspire One User site that covers 3G modems.

Messenger works fine, but only after all the various updates are installed. I strongly recommend you do this before giving it to your son as it can take quite a long time. The web browser is Firefox V2 (can be updated to the latest V3.x version) which I've not had any problems running flash applications with.

[size=3]Upgrading RAM[/SIZE]
Currently, all available models of the Acer Aspire One (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 ASUS 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 Asus 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.

If you use google checkout you can avoid the surcharge. I'm sooooooooo close to going for it. £160 Delivered!!!!!!!!. Thinking I might sell my Asus eee 701 4G on fleabay. Should cover most of the cost. Cheap upgrade in my (ever so humble) opinion ;-)
#38
Been after one of these for ages at a good price, thanks for listing it. Rang up Acer and it comes with a full 1 years warranty, how good is that. £100 cheaper than most websites

Yes, however a lot of people also like to perhaps add Word, Excel and a few other basic apps for when out and about working... plus maybe some photos etc etc. From experience of the 8gb+8gb sd card XP variant I was not very impressed with it at all. Although it's not to be confused with a laptop for storage/space etc I would still not recommend one with just an 8gb drive imo.
