Acer redefines mobile connectivity with Aspire ONE, the revolutionary netbook packed with fun and powerful computing features in a diminutive 8.9" form factor.

From the moment you switch it on, the Aspire ONE is ready to go in just a few seconds. That's what Acer calls a smart start.

And as your Aspire ONE is as unique as the way you use it, you can customize the applications on the home screen so that it's just right for you. Fast, simple and indescribably chic. That's your new life with the Aspire ONE.

Picked up my AA0 A150 for £150 with 120 Gig harddrive and without XP. Very nice lil netbook highly recommended. However if you have an XP disc or some means of installing XP ;] then I would shop around for the 120 gig version with a linux based operating system. Roughly £50 gets knocked off just by buying it without Windows pre-installed.

For those new to the Acer Aspire One, this should help with questions regarding upgrading...

[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...

[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.

Done the RAM upgrade not for the faint hearted. There are connections with ribbon cables etc, so you need to know how they work, as not all laptops are the same. The videos I have seen on youtube assume you can do this. Does the upgrade help? Yes, but don't expect xp to fly it won't, but it will be tolerable. However, use linux and it will boot up and be on the web in around 1 minute, xp after you have gone to make a cuppa! Btw 1.5gb max upgrade, and it is not worth the messing around for upgrade the internal HD , just connect a portable usb drive.

Suspect that having it with 3G is a "niche" market - not that many people want the 3G aspect who wont already have dongles etc.

last time there was 3g netbook deal i stated that you can dongles too, and it still went hot. that model was cheaper at play.com but has 16gb ssd instead of 160gb hd.

heres a similar deal http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/449942/acer-aspire-one-a110-a-3g-netbook-1/ £189.99 and its at 22 degrees, but that has 16gb ssd and linux instead of xp, does not have ability office or antivirus.

I'm thinking it's more because it's an Acer Aspire One and it's nearly £250. Psychologically it's too much for the AAO, there's better netbooks (admittedly sans the 3G bit) with better battery life, better screens and a more "premium" finish for similar money (Asus 1000HA for an example).

While the "One" is a great machine and has a great rep it's also (in the minds of many) the budget model. Under those circumstances it "should be" under the £200 mark (even if this is hot for a Netbook with XP, a HDD and a built in 3G modem).
#14
becaus £250 for an AAO is a rip off. If AN NC10 WITH 3g WAS £350, It would be cold too

+1 Actualy I have mine setup for a triple boot of Windows 7, OSX & Ubuntu and to be honest not much difference in boot times between any of them. Great little netbook but not at this price. I know its got XP & 3G but for me Windows 7 is free (albeit expirse next June) and there are loads of deals for 3G dongles. I have 3 of them and havent cost me a penny.
