Acer Aspire One

Moving to new host  http://blog.azee.se/

I brought my Aspire One AOA 110 – Ab  a couple of months ago, and after x-max and new year,  i have plenty of time to do some experiments on my this quite little tiny netbook.

Without any dought itwould be a perfect  netbook if Acer put a direct access to a RAM, so you have to dig a lot to access it, and i am not going to show here, there are plenty of  videos and links so just point your browser to here, here and here.

I created a wish list for aspire one, what i should or can have it, my philosophy of modding is, does i need it? (functionality),  does i have it? (purchase parts or reuse), is it cheep? (cost).

Here is my list , and hopefully i will keep modding it step by step.

  1. Adding 1Gb additional RAM
  2. Bluetooth
  3. Touch screen (must have)
  4. GPS
  5. SATA HDD
  6. Draft n WIFI
  7. 3g Modem

let’s begin, and we already did our first mod, installing 1 Gb RAM, just click above links and you figure out easily but use only PC4200/533MHz, its compatible.  I bought Kingston SO-DIMM DDR2 PC4200/533MHz KVR533D2S4, its cheap and easy fix.
