Good deal, but just shows what a cracker the £150 Asda deal was.
I bought this netbook but with 1gb memory from Amazon only 3 weeks ago and at that time it was £187. The Asda deal of £150 for this spec. was far better value if you could get one.
It is a fantastic netbook ,very fast to boot up and shutdown.
The price at the link above is £249.99
out of stock .... expected delivery 2-5 weeks so it can still be ordered at this price but the link takes you to reseller price.... goto other sellers/prices and amazon is there
[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 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...

[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.

Tried that but every time I click on the amazon 189 link at the bottom it just redirects to the 249 seller instead?

[FONT="Verdana"]If your in a hurry for a cheap netbook and can't wait that long check out the following post I did, which is a compiled list of all of the deals for netbooks advertised on this website.

Compiled Netbook Deals

Note that I also included a deal for a subnotebook, the HP NC2400 as well which comes equipped with a CDRW/DVD combo drive; its used but I thought it prudent to include.

I got one of these from Asda for £150 - don't know what all the fuss is about - it has only Linux and 512mb, a disaster-area if you want to upgrade the memory (you have to nearly totally dis-assemble & re-assemble)
As it is it's good for surfing - anything else you need to beef it up
Took it back & got my money back

[FONT="Verdana"]Easy - its the price! :-D For that price you are getting a fully fledged computer system, which is very portable, has large disk space capacity (with the Asda deal you are generally getting a 160GB hard disk) and it has an average screen size for a netbook.

On top of that you easily remove Linpus Lite Linux distribution that comes with it and replace it with either another Linux distribution with a larger & more defined user and support base i.e. Fedora, Ubuntu, Kbuntu, SUSE, etc. In addition that you can also install Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 Beta but also Mac OS X - its a very evenly balanced system, which considering a few years ago never existed.

There are also some disadvantages as well but they are smaller when compared against the overall package that your buying...if you want to buy it.

Talking of prices I have just noticed acer have as of 2/2/9 have lower prices (seems to be just the blue versions though) as 1gb 120mb Linux one now has srp of £199 is everywhere should be price tescos sell it for? Explains why play now sell the 512mb version for £189 as that's the srp for that one now. Shame they have not dropped the 1gb version yet

Not sure why amazon have got the White version for £189 though as for some reason it's got a higher srp for same 512mb 120gb Linux spec?
Amazon themselves no longer listing it at £189.99 new anymore and unless I'm mistaken they aren't listing any A150's anymore, just amazon market traders now?
These are showing as back in stock on 14th Feb
Got a brand new battery still sealed if anyone is interested
