Where can you find the stock?

It is a very good price but not available in and around London.

Great price, any stock in Cardiff?

[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 Acer 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 Acer 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.

:stocking::santa::gift:

None in Devon!

cold....no stock around yorkshire!!

probably none anywhere...

none in barrow,lancaster,blackpool,preston,blackburn,liverpool,birkenhead,liverpool garston

why the hot votes yet no one can find stock

I've clicked expire because I know for a fact they are out of stock nationwide. I went in to store on Wednesday and I got one of the guys to do a store search (PC World & Currys), he tried every region and there is no 'pristine' stock anywhere. There are only a couple of stores with ex-display. Erdington have 2 of those.

No stock in london, reading , or herts.

cold

The online stock check only shows stock if there's more than 3 in store. Otherwise it will say out of stock. There have been plenty of times where I've checked to see if a PC world deal is available in my local store and it's said no stock. When I've visited the store later there have been 2-3 of the item sitting on the shelf. It's worth giving you local store a phone or popping in IMO.

Just to add to my post above; if anyone did want to buy an ex-display model (like I did); on Wednesday they had 2 in Currys Erdington (Birmingham) and 1 in Luton. If they won't budge on the price [they say they are only making £5 at this price) offer to take out the extended warranty if they reduce the laptop (it's £69 for 3 years).

You can then either; cancel the insurance when you get home [you have 45 days cooling off period & will get full refund]

OR

The guy said as this model is discon. if I broke it (under accidental damage) they would have to replace it with the new model (16Gb SSD).

I doubt that the sales person knows how much profit Currys are making on this. Tesco would therefore have been making a £30 loss on this the other week.
