has the asda deal gone now then? (making this the next best price)
Only 512 Ram, and near impossible to upgrade. Poor deal, can get better for not much more.

[FONT="Verdana"]I would have to disagree with that, as other members who purchased this netbook via the Asda Deal Thread were able to successfully upgrade the memory using guides on the internet.

Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:[/FONT]
i have this model, only in blue, as far as i'm concerned it doesn't even need the upgraded ram.

these aren't high flying laptops for gaming and video editing

use mine for browsing and to take on holiday to (a) watch movies or listen to music and (b) back-up my holiday pics

it's great and i couldn't be pestered taking it to bits just to get some more ram in it

hot from me
has the asda deal gone now then? (making this the next best price)

Was able to get an Asda one within the last week but they are still hard to find.
got one in asda on sunday ,still had a couple left in the ayr store.
I got one in ASDA for £150 on Sunday, I phoned head office and got them to do a stock check, there were as many as 12 at some local stores. Seems they are not on show but tucked away out back.
The memory upgrade is really easy, there are some great YouTube video guides which will point you in the right direction. A memory upgrade is circa £15 for the 1GB however there was a deal on here for 2 x 1GB for circa £15 which would be sufficent to split between two netbooks.

Done 3 not that hard, just need to take your time plenty od video's on youtube :)
[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.
