A friend of mine bought this netbook and asked me to add Linux to it. I installed Kubuntu "Lucid Lynx" 10.4.2 in dual boot mode. Lucid slid on like a silk glove. Everything worked "out of the box". Installed Skype and it worked well, too. The internal mic and webcam gave excellent results. It streamed a Tom Hanks movie from YouTube seamlessly in full screen mode.

I purchased the similar Acer Aspire AO521-3782 from Amazon as an Xmas gift for my wife. It, too, is running well and she loves it. She especially loves the portability of it, and its long battery life. She'll take it off the shelf, do her browsing and email, and the occasion photo session with DigiKam, plus watching videos. She can do that 3 or 4 times before the battery gets low and she has to plug it in. With the HDMI cable (Belkin F3U133-10 Hi-Speed HDNMI) I purchased from Amazon she can plug her Acer into our VISO HDTV and stream the movie to the "big screen"! I also bought her the car charger so she can take it with her and be able to recharge it while using it in the car. The last piece of equipment I bought for her Acer was the Samsung USB 2.0 8x DVD Writer External Optical Drive for Mac and PC SE-S084D/TSBS burner. It requires two USB ports to power it but it works VERY WELL with both Win7 and Linux.

This Acer, and my wife's, came with only 1GB of RAM, so one additional purchase really makes the Acer One's fast: replacing the 1GB stick with a 2GB stick: 2GB PC3-10600 (1333Mhz) 204 pin DDR3 SODIMM (CNF)
for $28 plus shipping. The speed increase when browsing, or running more than one app at a time (browser + email), I estimate to be nearly double. OF course, FireFox is always faster when you set up one pipeline for each tab you plan to open. I set up 8 pipelines.

When you see this netbook at Amazon you also see "what other purchased". Well lots of people order the Crucial memory upgrade CT25664BC1067. However that memory is not for this computer. I know. I purchased it and it does not work. Using Crucial's web site the memory upgrade for this computer is listed below.

CORRECT MEMORY PART NUMBER: CT2035536

Module Size: 2GB
Package: 204-pin SODIMM
Feature: DDR3 PC3-8500
Specs: DDR3 PC3-8500 * CL=7 * Unbuffered * NON-ECC * DDR3-1066 * 1.5V * 256Meg x 64 *

its a great little netbook, I use it for doing homework and programming, other than that its not great for much else, the screen is too small to watch anything the speaker quality is okay but not anything special.
If youre looking for a small portable netbook to do some light work (word processing, web viewing, programming, etc) then this is perfect. Just don't expect to do any heavy computing

I recently got this little laptop as a gift after my main computer crashed and died. In short, I completely love the little thing! I rarely ever used CDs, so a netbook seemed to be the right choice for me.
The Windows 7 Starter program has a few niches that I don't enjoy, but are thigns I can completely live with (and could obviously change programs if I so desperately needed). The memory for this little baby is impressive. Its so small, I can fit it in one of my bigger purses and just go. The battery life is amazing as well, I can get it to be on for about four hours at a time sometimes.
The webcam and mic quality are perfect for talking to friends and family far away. Very happy with this product.
The only extreme downer is it's a little laggy with videos from Netflix. Youtube seems to work fine, but netflix and this laptop seem to not mix well.

This is taken directly from their support site "While the Aspire One AOD255 series supports a total of 2GB of DDR3 RAM, due to the design of the netbook the RAM on the Aspire One AOD255 series is not replaceable and Acer does not support upgrading or replacing the RAM."

This should be noted in the description, not that it stopped me since I was able to determine how easy it really is to replace the RAM. Not that I am going to do so, since it would void my warranty. ;)

For those who wish to void their warranty and install 2GB's of RAM, it should take you about 10mins tops to swap it out. ;)

I'm probably not the world's most demanding user, but I think this little thing is great. I can easily surf the web, answer emails, watch Netflix movies, etc. I installed the Windows upgrade without any problem. Not sure exactly what it does, but it was easy to do. I also added an external DVD drive for playing media. The only thing I wish it had was an HDMI output so I could hook it up to hotel TVs for movie watching, but using the VGA outlet and headphones is an acceptable compromise for me. Only had it a month so far, so can't comment on durability.

After spending many years cursing the inability of underpowered netbooks to run Hulu full screen, much less full screen at 480p, I was shocked to discover this netbook, which I had passed down to my daughter to use to play pbskids.org, was suddenly able to run Hulu just fine!

No, it didn't grow an extra silicon brain, and it is still laboring with the N570 dual core Atom and miserable GMA 3150 graphics ... but apparently Adobe finally got its act together with it's implementation of Flash and now it's less of a resource hog.

My single core Atom netbook still can't do this.

Before you rush out to buy this Acer AOD 255, please note that it has been replaced by the AOD 257. And that the AOD 257 is now discontinued and being replaced by the AOD 270. The AOD270 will have the latest and greatest Atom chip, the N2600 (or N2800) which is a little faster, but mainly has much, much superior graphics performance, including hardware decoding of some additional popular video codecs.

I just wanted to post this ultra-short comment if any of you are shopping for one of these used, or new-discontinued.

Also for any users who don't believe this netbook can handle 360 pr 480 full-screen.

My set up is running Chrome (which has built-in Flash) and Microsoft Security Essentials instead of McAffee or Norton etc. for antivirus. Also I upgraded to 2gb of RAM. YMMV running a more resource intensive browser and/or anti virus.
