Still think for the same money, the Dell 1GB - 8GB is a better buy http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/304553/dell-inspiron-mini-9-8gb-ubuntu-194/ :thumbsup:

Not the easiest netbook to upgrade the ram though is it seeing as you have to dismantle the thing.

Good luck with that :whistling:

i think this is better than the dell. you get a widescreen, bigger hard drive, wider keyboard i think.
dont know about battery life. anyone know which has a longer battery life?
#10
Just bought a laptop, so not sure I can justify this. Cracking price though:)

Ive got the Dell so a bit biased, one big + for the Dell is the battery life

Mini 9 ~ 4.5 hrs general use
AAO ~ 2 hrs 15 mins general use

Good price - you can also get it from play.com with the 5% RAC/Varsity discount.

You might be better hanging on to see if the AAO110 512MB - 8GB (£175.00 ~) drops in price like its big brother, sub £150.00 would be a steal.

well said. It took me around 40 minutes to remove a HDD on a 11" Sony 'Cr*p' Vaio for data recovery. Same kind of process, had to dismantle the notebook completely to access the HDD. For those not familiar with HW maintenance this can be quite a challenge.

Need more ram...The Amazon deal 2 weeks ago was the best £199 delivered...Mind you my daughter has just got the ipod touch and that little thing has full browsing on the internet as well.
#20
surely this at eBuyer is a better deal http://www.ebuyer.com/product/145008

Seeing as it's much better build quality and easy to install XP on and with the 1GB RAM runs fine?

Granted it's preorder for 5th Jan but other than that I know which I would go for
#21
BTW you can only have max 1.5gb of ram in this (512mb soldered in + 1gb sodimm)

I upgraded mine a few weeks backs, and it's not for the faint of heart. Took me about an hour, and I'm a a techno geek!

You have to take it completely apart and it will void your warranty if any marks can be detected. So if you be very careful, then no one will notice.

XP runs superbly on it and it's so light and portable; like carrying a hardback book with you.
#22
dont forget that this does not have a cd/dvd rom

Looks good apart from the Operating System SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10

And its an older Processor VIA C7-M 1.2 GHz ULV that they are ungrading to the atom which is already in the Acer One

Slower ,& not Atom, processor though

Bought one of these a couple of months ago for £225 and at this price it's a real bargain. Super little computer, the OS that comes with it is a bit **** but you can install and run XP no probs. If you can get it in blue then that's the One to go for as it looks really nice. Battery life is about the same as an average laptop but you can buy a bigger battery if you wish and I think that lasts up to 8 hours.
#28
brought one of these and upgraded to winxp
see here http://aspireonesoftware.wordpress.com/2008/09/30/rons-image/
works a treat
my only regret is that i should have paid a bit more for the 1gb model.

No the CDISCOUNT offer for 179 plus quidco plus 15% voucher was the best deal by far for this - work it out!
.
8Gb flash dell or 120Gb HDD Acer - I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to work that one out either - :-D

30 minutes to upgrade the ram to 1.5GB (9 pounds from Crucial) and an hour to get XP loaded - now it flies :)
#32
It has been 199 from Play for ages now, so with the RAC discount it comes to virtually the same price, so it's down to who you prefer to trade with, Misco or Play !
#33
I got two AAO 150's for the kids for xmas from play.com for £185 each delivered using the rac code and quidco.

Have fitted 1gb sticks to each also from play so they are now running 1.5gb as well as OSX Leopard.

They run great! Even though this deal is £5 more its still hot.

Yep, a Dell Mini 9. A few chargers on ebay - http://preview.tinyurl.com/9lhasb

If you can stretch the budget get a Samsung NC10.

Other opinions are available...:thumbsup:
#35
This is, in my opinion a much better deal.

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/145008

I got one for my daughter at Christmas and I installed XP on it and it runs like a dream with 1gig of RAM. If you're thinking of putting Vista on it you'll need to up the RAm to 2 gig.
#36
I got a Samsung NC10 and stuck a 2GB RAM stick in... it's wonderful. and for £272.99 I'm well chuffed.

The NC10 is without doubt a brilliant machine, however I just cant see where it fits, is it a small notebook or a large Netbook ? IMHO no Netbook should be more than £199.00 nor should it be any larger than 9 inches x 7 otherwise it seems to defeat the object. Sorry just my op.

[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=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.

Well, it's not much more than your price point and is just as portable as any other netbook, plus it has that huge battery life. TBH I use it instead of a laptop as the 10" screen is a great compromise size. I use it at work as well and plugging it into a big monitor and keyboard and with a 2Gb upgrade and running Windows 7 beta it's a great day to day PC! Excellent for use on the train or plane too due to it's size.

However, if you just want a companion device which is tiny, then the Dell Mini 9 is the one to go for.

Don't you just love how cheap laptops have got over the past couple of years! :thumbsup:
