[FONT=Verdana]Would recommend editing the title to include the 3G embedded support it has.

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

Done - thanks :)
#3
whats ability home office? is this compatable with ms office?
#4
abililty home office is compatible with ms office. although so is open office, which is free and better in my opinion.

been after one of these since missing out on the £149 linux version on expansys.

HOT!
#5
Was posted at £244 only a couple of days ago.

Scorching hot from me.
#6
They even have the 512MB, 120GB model available as a REFURB for £207.

God this is tempting!
#7
[FONT=Verdana]I'm considering purchasing one but I need to check the finances out later on, as I'm skint until I get my invoice paid...oh joy! :oops:

Must admit it's a good buy as you can get 2% Cashback for Dabs via Quidco but also TopCashBack as well from what I can see.

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

does the 3g mean it has a gps reciever built in and if i can activate it i can run gps software on it thanks.
#9
No...
#10
Odd. It says 160Gb AND Solid State. Me doth think it lies and it's a normal HDD.

Does look a barg. I was considering the Dell Mini 9 which can just about be got hold of in a few places - for about £10 more with an 8Gb Solid state drive (an actual one, not a made up one).
#11
3G and GPS are sooooo different. Google them.
BTW, I just bought a Samsung NC20 (cos it has a 12" screen). Very nice . . .
Edit: no way is this solid state.

Probably a bargain overall, but not the best when it comes to Hackintoshing if that interests anyone:

I think that I would rather pay £10 more and get a 160GB HDD rather than teh 16GB one the PINK one has, plus no 3G

It does have 3G and the 16Gb SSD looks pretty sexy.
Need more space? Get a 32Gb memory stick for £35. Or a 16Gb SD card.
#18
this will work on my wireless network at home right? as on the link the othe chap posted it says no wifi?

also is this as good as or better then the acer 531?
#19
I have the Aspire one a110 1GB ram 16GB SSD and found it incredibly slow when surfing the net, it would pause for as much as 5 seconds while it wrote to the cache (both internet explorer and firefox).
Now I Have modded mine with a 60gb Ipod drive and it runs like a dream, have even installed windows 7 :)
If I hadn't already spent money modifying my Netbook I'd be snapping this one up, especially with the built in 3g!

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...

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.

i logged out of my account then went to that link and it shows the discounted price, maybe it isnt for those on the email list after all.

[FONT=Verdana]Oddly enough the discount still appears to be working at this time (thought it was only meant to work for one day) - I've not purchased one yet but going to checkout still shows the correct price with the discount applied to it.

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