Amazing price for 1GB (120/160GB ?) I just hope its not just a one off store only !

HOT
#2
was it a managers special ????? or one of those yellow price tags
#3
I'd like to know if this is nationwide or just a one off. If it's nationwide this is hot.

..edit..
Website says it's a discontinued product and states £219. I'm guessing the OP found a managers special.
#4
Dealer & price in title would've been nice.

Good price if nation wide?
#5
Any idea if they had any left?

Might pop there in the morning.

[SIZE="2"]IF[/SIZE] this deal is available nationwide then hold on to your seats !

Asda 3 months ago sold the AAO 512MB 120/160GB Linux for £150.00 deal/thread received 3482 degrees of heat and was 3962 posts long :p

[size=1]Yes, a lot of people have the seen the below info already but I'm sure there are a few that haven't...[/size]

[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.

Wouldn't take to much notice regards Tescos website they quite often sell Electrical items in store that aren't on the site, besides the one you mention comes with XP.

OP is Tesco hermiston Gait a Supermarket or a Tesco home store ?

Store had at least 2 others which I was offered at the same price, one 8Gb SSD Linux, and one 16Gb SSD XP. No idea if this is nationwide, or a one-off store reduction, but a great deal...

This is a Tesco Supermarket...

norwich don't have this in stock.

My mum was after one. She's off picking up one she reserved in cumbernauld, and I reserved one for myself in coatbridge, who are expecting delivery of them TONIGHT.

Confirmed that this IS NOT JUST ONE STORE.

Hmmm might check out my Tesco i have the eeepc 701 which has run np but the lack of drive space and the smaller screen with some pages does get abit annoying at times and they still fetch good money on Ebay so this may be a very good replacement if i can get one :-D

They had 4/5 empty display boxes on the shelf, however the actual ones are sealed in a cage outback, so not to sure regards stock sorry, might be worth a call and reserve.

Damn, I was going to post this! I picked up the 8gb SSD white one for £99 this evening in Tesco. I already have one in blue, but couldn't resist another at this price as I know someone who wants one.

Tesco are in the process of selling off a number of laptops at 50% off, most the offers start on Friday morning but some may have started early.
#25
can you get this with windows xp for same price?

thanks
#26

The XP one in Edinburgh was only on the 16Gb SSD, so yes, but not equivalent spec

[FONT="Verdana"]Dependent on how you configure the operating system (be it Linux or Windows) and what your network connection is like it will be a decent runner for you - a good place to check out is the Acer Aspire One User Community, which has a very good forum with lots of advice & multiple guides as well for the netbook.

Listed below is the link to their forum if you want to check it out further.

yes it will do all those things more than adequately but if you have never used a netbook i would suggest going to tesco or comet first and trying one as if you intend to type a lot on it the small keyboard and small screen could become frustrating.

Also HDD is a hard disc drive; conventional type with plates. SSD is a solid state drive newer technology so less GB/£ but based on flash memory so very rugged and essentially bulletproof.
