Screen is only 8.9". I prefer 10+ inch. However, pricewise, seems OK. Neither good nor bad!!!

Yes, I've posted this a few dozen times over the past year but there are still some that are new to the first incarnation of the AA1. So here's some info for them to help get them going on upgrading ram and storage :)

[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.

Note that if your not wanting to go down the Acer route you only have a few options available (with integrated hardware support) - the key one would be a Dell Mini 9 with WWAN integrated, which are still listed on the Dell UK Outlet.

That's the whole point of a netbook. Kind of defeats the idea if it's got a 17" screen!

Note that over at the Acer Aspire One User Community, there is a sub-forum dealing with 3G/HSDPA support - you might want to take a look there and a link to it is posted below (the overall forum & blog has great resources for all models of the Acer Aspire One Netbook).

I got myself one of these last bank holiday (they had it in the deals back then for the same price).

Beware the postion of the mouse left click and right click buttons may get on your nerves and the standard battery will only last you 3 hours max.

Going to have to get myself a 9 cell battery I think.....

[FONT=Verdana]Agree, the mouse button positions are not great but if your doing a large amount of typing you can temporarily switch off the mouse buttons - it's been a while since I looked into this but it was either a small button on top of the trackpad or it was a function key combination.

[FONT=Verdana]If your looking for a small compact netbook with integrated 3G then I would say yes - the only other real option would be to take a look at the refurbished Dell Mini 9 Netbooks, via the Dell UK Outlet or third party resellers, as it's the only other major one out there with 3G support integrated.

After that you would be looking at netbooks with larger screen sizes (i.e. 10" plus) that would have this and there is still only a few from what I've seen thus far.

Hope that helps you out - if you want to I would suggest doing some searches via the internet and see what reviews are out there for this Acer Aspire One but also other hardware vendor solutions as well.

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

I`ve got one running dual boot vista/ hackintosh works a treat, I bought a 9 cell battery and always get around 7-8 hours of use only 1.5-2 on normal battery.

Not that interested on the larger netbooks coming out, the whole reason i bought one was to ditch the laptop....the boundary between netbooks and laptops are getting blurred ;-)

hey guys, i'm so tempted to get one!

I've been trying to find out the spec of the 3g.... Is it the regular 3g or HSDPA and what speed it supports, ie 7.2meg per second?...

Here's what ive found on the acer uk site:

"WWAN: UMTS/HSPA (High-Speed Packet Access) at 850/1900/2100 MHz and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz), upgradeable to 7.2 Mb/s HSDPA and 2 Mb/s HSUPA (for 3G models)
Supports receiver diversity and equalizes at 2100 MHz "

So we need to know if we are getting the built in 3g HSPA or HSDPA 7.2mb/s?!?! I bet BT/Dabs cant answer/confirm that until u try it out!:!::?::?:
#26
Let me tell you about my experience with this laptop '6 months'. i am using a150 non 3g with 1.5gb upgraded kingston ram 533mhz and 160gb HD. Initially i had linux as standard. Boots very fast like under 20 seconds. Ive tried vista home premuim, boots around 3-4 min with only msn, 3 mmb and avgfree anti virus installed. Recently I installed win7RC with same msn, avgfree.... faster at 2-3min. The graphics card is weak at only 8mb.....this makes the netbook laggy. Also they come with the basic single core atom processor which is rather slow i think. Some of you guys say that you can get rid of the lappy for this netbook!!!... no way it can't beat the speed and stability of a lappy. Getting one of these netbooks only good for web on the go not for long use at home. The screen is too small and pages need to be scrolled alot.

[FONT=Verdana]I have to agree with some of your comments but at the end of the day this particular netbook is more geared for the mobile traveller - I do a lot of travelling myself and there is nothing worse than having to lug around a 14" laptop, so you have all of the necessary ports needed to support technical projects being worked on.

The screen issue can be easily resolved by connecting it to a larger screen, which a lot of people I know actually do when they are at home or in an office - that's what several friends of mine, who work offshore, use them with as most of them are used for generating reports or for movie/music media playing.

Ebay!

You can get an Asus 1005ha for not much over than £90 more. Over 3 times the battery life, extra inch on the screen, faster wifi, slightly faster more power saving processor (N280), better webcam, and comes with a case, ram can easily be upgraded to 2gb - although it does lack internal 3g. The way I see it though is you have to buy a usb 3g dongle to get the sim (one's on ebay seem to be standard sims which you pay over the odds for 3g on) and carrying the dongle around and plugging it into the laptop isn't much hassle. Hopefully 3g will become standard one day anyway. IMHO the Asus 1005ha is a much better option than buying this then getting a battery which a genuine one will cost £80 and won't last as long as the Asus, or getting a dodgy one from China off Ebay where you don't have any idea what the quality or longevity will be like.

I wonder what will happen to prices when models with windows 7 show up?!

[FONT=Verdana]I suppose it's down to whether people can actually afford to pay the extra money required to purchase the Asus 1005HA Netbook, especially within the current financial climate.

Ive got windows 7 running on mine, runs really well! I got the one from the tescos deal a while back without the 3g support for about £120 i think

I definatly recommend one, but id either stick windows xp or 7 on it :thumbsup:

HOT

Its a good price although £40 up on the similar play.com offer two months ago (SSD & Linux).

Tempting as it may be - they will fall in price when the USB-3, 3.5G, N280 ones become the norm in time for Christmas, then plummet when the credit card bills hit the doormat in February. Its only 4 months away now - but covers almost all foreseeable future proofing.

Lastly, its a bummer trying to up the memory on these and is likely to invalidate the warranty, but on the upside, the 3G card used in most also has a sat nav receiver, so you can use the free google maps application to show where you are and calculate routes, tell you where the nearest what-ever is etc.
#36
good deal - i have one of these and love it, but just to say, contrary to what others on here may say I don't see the need to put xp or vista on it, the linpus lite, while at first looks like a 'my first computer' actually does what you want really well - its fast to boot up and straight into firefox nice and quick - and that is about 90% of the machines usage right there.

For office, Open Office suits just fine for banging out notes or spreadsheets - if you need to work, then presumably you have a work machine - personally staring at this screen over a spreadsheet or word doc would not really be for me.

The best place to start with AAO is the registers 10 steps guide: http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2008/09/05/ten_aspire_one_tips/ - this will help you get to grips with configuring Linpus Lite and even installing apps - i have several apps running under WIne on mine, just great.

All i would say is 'what do you need windows for? - if most of your time is spent surfing on this machine i have been very happy with linpus. I have tried running UNR on it, purely so i could use dropbox, but went back to Linpus - it just works a little better, load time etc but if anyone knows how to get dropbox running on linpus (fedora8) i would be interested to know.

In time i may go to UNR - but really, one year on i'm still more than happy with Linpus.
