csamual
what system is it running ?

[FONT="Verdana"]
Based upon the price and physical description I would say its running with the Linpus Lite Linux distribution provided by Acer - you can either stick with it or use another Linux distribution instead (i.e. Ubuntu, Kbuntu, Fedora, SUSE, Slax, etc) or Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 Beta or Mac OS X.

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

just to let you know after trying for weeks to find either the asda 512mb version £150 or the tescos one with 1Gb for £199, i downloaded the pricelist from acer website which gives a suggested price of £199 for this version. 1gb / 120gb / linux / blue i.e part number LUS050A74.

took this down to my local comet and they dropped the price from £229 to £199 :-D

now why didn't i try that weeks ago :roll:

[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...

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.

[FONT="Verdana"]Cheers for that Bristle Hound - I managed to find another deal for this model of netbook (same specifications) via the online reseller IJT Direct Ltd for £175.41p using a 10% discount code in case people are struggling to find them via this deal or via the Asda deal that was previously posted.

EDIT - Cancel that, the bloody netbook has been excluded from the discount voucher.

If they drop the price any further let us know :) (its only 22 miles away)

Had a chance to look at the HP2133 and the Acer in PC World and although the HP is slightly nicer, for the same price, I'd rather have addtional performance......

just to recommend to all,
get the new ubuntu netbook remix from here and mount the disc image onto a >1gb USB dongle. (here are some instructions for how to write an .img file to the usb drive)
Then boot from USB (press F12 at boot up) and try out the latest ubuntu.

I think its great, and have installed onto my aspire one.

Isn't this one with a bigger HD for the same price at Zavvi?

Ah, ok if it is XP then my above link is void.

This thread is from back end of Feb/start of March - are there going to be any left at Tesco with XP on for £200?
#21
There are at New Oscott - it was only a couple of days ago I was pondering.....and still am!

BEWARE

Tesco seem to be selling all sorts of variants on this machine and the staff seem to be mixing them up

We went to the Nottingham Tesco Homeplus store a few days ago and both myself and friend bought the £199 Machines.

1 Was : Windows XP - 8GB SSD + 8GB SD Card and a 2600Mah Battery

1 Was : Windows XP - 16GB SSD : 2200Mah Battery but it also has a 3G Sim Card slot in it so you can put a mobile phone sim in it

I am using it to suft over the phone network as well as wifi (Currently using it with my "3" PAYG sim and £5 a month unlimited data allowance works great you can browse quickly (seems to speed test about a 2Mbps connection) you can also send texts but not voice calls

So the first machine was a crappy deal but the second was bril. Mate is taking the first back for a refund. (I googled the 3G Phone module in mine and its 260 euros to buy) so if you can find any of those is Tesco you are on a winner,

The 3G Modules are unlocked have tried it with "3" O2 Orange and T-Mobile all work fine but the best PAYG data is on "3"


The store were no help with us and just said "Its Acer Its Blue it must be the right one"!!!!

Remember to try ubuntu too (see post number 18), you can run it from a USB dongle, without any changes to the built in disc drive. Its well worth the download and easy to install permanently if you decide to.

It will never get a virus with linux, works well with 3g modems and great with firefox...

I am needing Laptop like this or similar to take with me travelling in August but i think i will wait till closer to the time as it looks like the prices are slowly coming down each month,
#27
Great deal for such a portable netbook. Would be great if i could find a 16gb SSD version to put PAYG 3 sim in like mentioned in a previous post.

Like stapsell said, try ubuntu. It's free, all the software is and it's safe from viruses. Just look around for some guides to getting started with it.

Ive just come back from there and its not £199 i did hear one of the staff telling some family that there was £40 of laptops but he never mentioned the netbooks.
#31
You were probably looking at the A150 160Gb looks the same and that one is £249.

There are so many specs on this little begger.

i got the ex display .....paid ... £153...well chuffed,just need some help on how to get windows xp on it now


I tried for ages to upgrade my 150-L (linux) to XP home. I tried bootable usb memory stick, usb hard drive you mame it.... failed completely.
I eventually bought a cheap usb DVD drive £35 off an Amazon vendor (very good) and installed xp from that.
HINT - these laptops have SATA hard drives so if your version of windows is not SP2 or 3, you will have to create a "slipstrem" insatllation. (This is not hard to do, I learned all I needed from the internet and it worked) - reason being that early XP was out before SATA drives and therefore just will not boot.
Good luck
