I've added a few upgrades after reading some reviews on other models, and found a great combination on the cheap, all from amazon. I'll upload some pictures too. First I added a new wireless card, it wasn't the easiest to find but it added dual band N and bluetooth for under $25 and is a cinch to install. just remember to get the drivers from the intel website for it, they increased my range considerably. Its link is Intel Network 6235AN.HMWWB Centrino WiFi Card Advanced-N 6235 Dual Band Bluetooth Retail Second I added a matched set uf crucial 4 GB ram modules, dont think it really maters wheather or not they are matched or if they will run dual channel but figured what the heck Crucial 8GB Kit (4GBx2) DDR3 1333 MT/s (PC3-10600) CL9 SODIMM 204-Pin Notebook Memory Modules CT2KIT51264BC1339 Lastly I added a crucial M4 128gb SSD, the machine runs fine with a traditional HDD, but starts from sleep almost instantly with the SSD. This isn't my main machine, and honestly is much more useful than my 64gb iPad I paid twice as much for. Adding the SSD takes a little work though. Make the restore usb stick using the acer recovery program first of all. If you want to overprovision the drive is where it gets tricky. SSD's do wear out over time. It will likely outlast two of these little portables, but overprovisioning set some space aside to be used to replace some of the blocks as they wear out. I'm no good with linux but a friend pointed me to a program called Hdat2.Read more ›
Also people with wifi problems have to just change the power management settings from power save to maximum performace under the advanced settings tab for wifi.
I bought it after my laptop crashed, and it works so well I'm beginning to wonder why I spent three times as much on the old laptop. As someone put it, this is a poor man's Ultrabook. It is lightweight and sleek, amazingly fast (probably thanks to the 4 gb of RAM), quiet, responsive, with a good screen resolution, and strong wireless. It's also great to have an 11.6 inch screen.
If you paid an extra $1000 you could get better speakers and an even larger screen. You'd get a faster processor too though I haven't seen any difference in speed compared to my 3 year-old laptop. There would be a cd drive also, but I rarely use one anymore. This Aspire One has taught me how easy it is to live without all those upgrades. Plus, the screen resolution is on par with my old laptop. The battery life is also the same, which is not extraordinary (maybe 3 hours). But the power cord is small and lightweight and easy to carry around.
There are great shortcuts using the function keys, including putting the computer into Airplane mode, and putting it to sleep. It wakes up much faster than my old laptop. I find the trackpad slow but I use a mouse most all the time, and I assume eventually I'll get used to it.
An extra bonus is that it uses the same power cord as another, older Aspire One I have, and it's convenient to have a second cord.
A few tips: the manual recommends fully charging the battery and then discharging it three times before using the computer.Read more ›
