Acer Aspire has a bigger HD and can pass of to use latop functions rather than purely having a netbook

Acer aspire one AOA110 is purely a netbook with 16gb total space and is limited to what it can do

I would go for linux as its much faster but if you decide for the AOA110 then defo go for linux the other one shouldnt have a problem with either

Hope that helps

Linux is just as easy to use as Windows. The reason people think otherwise is that they have been brought up or only ever use Windows, so find it difficult to use something else.
The best bet would be to decide what you want to use the netbook for and then make a decision based on that with which you want to use, based on the pros/cons of each OS.

The A150 is identical to the A110 except for having a 'bulge underneath allowing a 2.5" laptop hard-disk to be installed, the A110 only allows the less common and more expensive 1.8" drive to be fitted, which in the A110's case is an 8GB SSD.

The A150 can have an 1.8" SSD (8GB SSD) or a 2.5" Hard-disk installed (120GB hard drive).

In both models 512MB of RAM is soldered onto the motherboard and in there is 1 extra RAM slot (the 1GB model has a 512MB memory card installed in this), this restricts the memory upgrade to a maximum of 1.5GB RAM (512 hard soldered and 1GB from an installed memory card).

They are nice netbooks, but changing the hard-disk/SSD or changing/upgrading the memory are very awkward requiring taking most of the device apart, daunting even for a hardened PC engineer.

I'd recommend getting the 1GB A150 model with the 120MB hard-drive (Linux or Windows as preferred) if you plan on doing alot with the device or want to run Windows XP; if you are happy disassembling the thing then any A150 model will provide you the most upgrade potential; or if you just want a web browser / e-mail device running Linux then the 512MB 8GB SSD A110 is decent enough, but as the A150 is only a few pounds more nowdays.......

Using an OS is not just using its interface but also having to deal with driver.software installation, updates as well as troubleshooting.

As much as I hate to say it but i think overall windows is more intuitive for the general people. At least i would suggest to have some time of parallel installation to get use to linux

see this thread http://hotukdeals.com/item/394490/i-m-thinking-of-switching-to-ubuntu/ to see the opinion of people switching back to windows

o yes i have ubuntu on my netbook
