Hi
Thanks for posting. I have added an image to your post.
This is a link, made by rayman, which explains how to add images in great detail. It’s worth taking a look at if you are going to post more deals in future : - hotukdeals.com/ite…hr/
Or follow the link in my signature.
Kind regards
Andy

there a similar expired deal on play.comhotukdeals.com/ite…-a/play.com was cheaper, but this must be the cheapest available now. And you get clubcard points.

Cant find a 1gb 3g White version for this price anywhere else.

Also used a£10 off TescoDirect voucher that came the other day with my clubcard vouchers

Heard the 16GB SSD is slow, but I will install Linux if it really is that unbearable?

can u upgrade the ram in this?

The Acers are cheap and Nasty. You'd be better off with a Samsung or Asus model. They have waaaaay better screens, battery life and performance for not much more money.

just a case of u get what u pay for, the nc10 is twice the price, (and the asus' are similarly priced) depends what u need it for and how much money u got to spend on one.

'not much more money'? Link?

anyone know if i could connect this to my plasma for the purposes of watching games i cant get on sky but can get thru the net? fi so what is this process called and what is it i should look for on other netbooks? thanks

I've had mine since the start of the the year and I'm really chuffed with it. I installed XP over the original linux and it happily runs all my day to day apps.

No issues with quality at all at this price.

One thing I did find really useful was the purchase of a 360 hd drive (£16) to link up to this when CD/DVD installs were required.

As long as your TV has a VGA port then yes you can, just connect them with a VGA cable :thumbsup:

But...you wont get any sound through a VGA cable, you would have to use the headphone socket on your laptop with an adapter probably for the red/white audio cable youve no doubt seen before and connect that to your TV too!

Can u return it if its no good?

Wanna get one for mum but dunno if the screen is tto small for her..

Save yourself the hassle and just pop into your nearest Currys, PC World etc. They always have these on display.

Ta. Will do :-)

don't know much about these so can I ask once you've got the netbook are you up n running or do you need to get a contract for the Internet or anything sorry but as I said don't know. Currently using iPhone for my Internet thanks for any help x

For those new to the Acer Aspire One then this should help with questions regarding upgrading...

[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...

aspireoneuser.com/for…673


[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:

is it worth paying a bit more and getting one with a120 gb drive etc? my gf was looking at them in currys the other day i think they were about 240 quid?

Great idea, got a Xbox 360 HD which I may be able to put to good use again :thumbsup:

I`d pass up on this and shop around for the Acer Aspire 0ne A150 model. I picked mines up brand new from Ebuyer for £150 when they had them in-stock. They were doing the same deal on them in other places too so check up on it. My model came in blue. The key differences in spec between the the A150 and A110 that I can see are my A150 came with 120Gig HD, and the Graphics in the A150 is the intel GMA950 228 shared if I`m not mistaken. I think overall the A150 is the better buy.

Just a note it came with a linux based OS installed so I put Windows 7 onit which runs sweeeet as. Xp will also run great onit.

are you serious?? It's August and this is a technology item. I'd wager my left nut that there will be plenty better deals on netbooks over the next 4 months.

Maybe not significantly cheaper but bang for buck, definitely better.

Of course if you want to buy and use now, voted HOT.

But if you want to buy and put away... dumb idea.

Hi, Obviously entitled to your opinion however personally disagree completely. The build quality on these net-books from Acer is very good IMHO. Voted hot.

seemed like a good deal till I noticed the battery life...up to 3 hrs?......nah...worth paying the extra for a Samsung and getting real mobility...

Can you put any 3g sim out of a dongle in this, e.g. vodafone?

yes the sim card will fit inside and replace the dongle.

I've had a blue Acer,(WinXP, 160gig, 1mg RAM) for about 3 months now, and it is neither cheap or nasty. The screen is superb - bright and sharp. I love watching films on it. I've seen the Samsung screen, it is definately not waaaaay better. Prefer the Acer screen myself, appears brighter and sharper to me.

I did'nt want a 10 or 12in. screen - the 8.9in. keeps the weight and size down, which is my preference. I wanted something petite and light - ideal to use on my lap or pop on a pillow. It is great for what I bought it for - surfing the web and watching DVDs. Also, don't care a jot about battery life as I almost always use it tethered

I love my little netty, and use it daily - love at first sight it was

Different strokes for different folks. It makes me laugh that because something does'nt meet their own particular requirements, some folk feel the need to give out with this sort of blanket hackneyed rubbish
:roll:

Excellent deal.

I am thinking of this for my daughters birthday would you have to be with 3g to access internet. My desktop is with virgin broadband & could she watch dvd's on this. Sorry not very tech minded!

If you are already with Virgin then you can get a dongle for £5pcm for using on the go. I assume you will have wireless for in-house.

I agree 100%. I have the one you describe - Aspire One a150 had mine for about a month and love it! I love using it for recipes in the kitchen, too - rather than printing them off and wasting paper only to have to print them again when they get ruined!

I love my netbook! (and I also have a tower PC, and a laptop.)
