Ok I realise this has been posted before (thanks to Gazzie) It lasted for a couple of days at this price then went up to £199.00. I dont think you will find it much cheaper. You might even get PC World to Price match it - 10% of the difference.

Was tempted to buy one of these for my wife but really want XP to make things easy(network,programmes etc)

Some Costco stores are selling the 1GB - 120GB - XP Home (Sapphire Blue only) for £234.00 :thumbsup:

Lewie - don't worry about it not having XP - it is simple to use and the networking is easy to set up. Unless you want to add any extra software (which can be done but needs a bit of IT know-how) then it's great.
#5
I bought the 8GB one (in blue though, how much better blue looks after seeing the image above!) and stuck Vista on it, runs perfectly. XP will be the same if you want to do that on this 8GB version and you have a spare copy lying around.
#6
Amazon also have it for £179.99 in Saphire Blue and Seashell (sic) White. Free delivery.
#7
You running viast? with 512mb ram?
#8
Popped in store and saw this today,is the blue available at this price?
#9
i reckon the 512mb model with 120gb HDD from play.com for £209 is the best value, as i fancy setting it up to boot leopard and ubuntu, maybe even XP.

The 512mb ram will need upgrading, which is a pain - but cheap (around £10 to add 1gb) for a total of 1.5gb.

For those who want a great mobile internet solution plus a bit of basic word processing stick to this deal.

was going to get one but '3' have said that their internet dongles are not compatible with Linux :x

I believe they do work with Linux (and I downloaded an update last night which was for a Huwai modem, so they might work straight out the box).

If you check [url]www.aspireoneuser.com[/url] and their forums, the details are all on there. It's just a shame there's no internal 3g modem yet, you still have to plug the dongle in

Oh God no, it would melt in fear! Stuck an extra 1GB in, not the easiest to upgrade, you have to take the whole laptop apart since there isn't a nice little hatch on the bottom like most laptops to get easy access to th upgrade slot.
#13
Also on Laptops Direct for same price with an additional 2% Quidco if you want:

http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/Acer_Aspire_One/prod.asp

Would this be any good for doing my uni work on? I'm studying HND Computing and I'm a bit of a geek, are these easy to install XP on or a different version of Linux?

I've installed the popular versions of Linux (K/X/Ubuntu), as well as tweaked Linpus, XP has been installed but shockingly, I've settled with Vista - but only after a write filter (FBWF - Google it) has been applied because the SSD is frustratingly slow - I'd recommend this on an XP install as well.

They can all be installed easily enough using an external CD drive - which I don't have - so I used a USB pen drive, a little more work but certainly possible. If you're a bit of a geek (like me), it's a good buy if you want to be playing around with operating systems like that.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=-EfzckyZMTk for upgrading the memory.

How will this intergrate with a windows wireless network?
#21
^^^^^
Its wireless it will just connect to your wireless. As for accessing windows shares im not sure, never used linux on these but on the EEEPc i didnt find it easy to navigate our network.
#22
For Windows shares on Linux, use Samba.... I seem to remember it's set up ready on the Linpus Linux that comes installed on it.

what would be the best buy for a teenager's xmas - an acer or asus?
I'm so confused by all the different model numbers

Depends what said teenager would want to use it for...
#25
surfing the net mostly - wouldn't be homework thats for sure!
#26
In that case I'd say either would do! Both are capable of pretty much the same things although the ones with an Atom processor like this one are supposed to have a bit longer battery life...
#27
If you did do the price-match with PC World that should (based upon the 110% promise advertised on their website) give you this laptop at the cost of £162.00p based upon the 10% deduction of £17.99p.

Of course if your worried about disk storage space and also upgrading the memory (especially as this specific model is only equipped with 512MB of RAM & 8GB worth of storage via the PCI-E SSD within it) you could always price-match the ACER AOA150-AB (Sapphire Blue) or ACER AOA150-AW (Seashell White), which come equipped with 1GB of RAM & 120GB 2.5" hard disk.

Comet has them advertised both at £229.99p via their website (note that Play.com also advertises the AOA150-AW at the same price) so in theory you should get it from PC World for £207.00p with the price-match...of course I could be talking out of my a**e but thought it prudent to put it out there...

Cheers! :whistling:
#28
The PC World price match is 10% of the difference in prices so you'd only get 10% of the £70 difference (i.e. £7) which means you could get the 150aw for £222. not £207

I presume this wouldn't have enough memory for uploading photos etc onto it?

The memory will be fine unless you have a 500MB photo you want it to display...

(and I don't even want to imagine what resolution that would be, I don't think I can count that high!)

Ah really, thank you, I'm so not techy!!

So what is the difference between one of these and a laptop really then??

I just want to be able to surf the net, read my email and upload some photos, would this suffice?

Thanks

Its fine for that.

Real difference is that there is no cd/dvd drive, battery life could be better. Also it is harder to upgrade the memory and harddrive (SSD) should you need to in the future (if you did it yourself you would void the warranty).

Finally some rumors about the life of the SSD (flash based harddrive)
