Acer aspire one

  1. 1. Acer Developer Acer Type Subnotebook/Netbook Media 8/16 GiB SSD or 120/160 GB HDD Operating system Linpus Linux Lite, Windows XP Home Power 3-cell: 2.200 Ah, 2.4 Ah, 2.9 Ah; 6-cell: 5.2 Ah, 6.6 Ah (aftermarket extended-life batteries capacity may differ) CPU 1.6 GHz Intel Atom 1.66 GHz Intel AtomN270-N280 Memory 512 MiB, 1 GiB, 1.5 GiB, 2 GiB Display 10.1 in (26 cm), 8.9 in (23 cm) 1024×600 LCD TFT Input 89% size Keyboard Touchpad Camera 0.3 MP Suyin or 1.3 MP Liteon Webcam Connectivity 3 USB ports 5-in-1 card reader Realtek 10/100 Mbit/s Ethernet Atheros 802.11b/g WLAN 3G/UMTS Acer Aspire One is a line of subcompact notebook computers, or netbooks, released in July 2008 by Acer Inc. It is based on the Intel
  2. 2. Atom platform, which consists of the Intel Atom N270 processor, Intel 945GSE Express chipset and Intel 82801GBM (ICH7M) I/O controller. The line is manufactured for Acer Inc. by Quanta Computer, and is available in several shell colors: seashell white, sapphire blue, golden brown, onyx black, and coral pink. Its main competitors in the low-cost netbook market are the Asus Eee PC line and the Dell Inspiron Mini 9. An industry newsletter reports that Acer and Quanta have had a falling out and production of the Acer Aspire One line will be shifting to other manufacturers in 2009. Operating system Windows Windows XP Home Edition SP3 is installed on the models with a name ending in X, or ending in B followed by another letter denoting color. It is also possible to install and run Windows Vista or pre-release versions of Windows 7 on the laptop.
  3. 3. Linux Models with names ending in L, or ending in A followed by a letter for color, are shipped with Linpus Linux Lite. This offers a simplified user interface, with default applications like the Firefox 2 browser, OpenOffice.org 2.3, Acer One Mail and Acer One Messenger available directly on the main screen. The default desktop environment has been designed to hide advanced features from the user and to prevent modification. However, it is still possible to modify it to present a more traditional Xfce 4 desktop, enable more advanced features such as context menus, or install additional software. It is possible to install and run other Linux distributions on the Acer Aspire One, and some specially customised Linux distributions have been designed to offer out-of-the-box functionality. These include Linux4One, and Kuki Linux. Other distributions of the Linux operating system will also run, such as Fedora, Debian, Mandriva Linux, Ubuntu, Eeebuntu, openSUSE, and Linux Mint. Mac OS X Using work created by the OSx86 project, it can be run using many different hacks, including iAtkos, iDeneb, "XxX" and Kalyway distributions. Booting and installing one of these using a USB DVD
  4. 4. drive or flash drive allows Aspire One users to gain access to the OSx86 operating system and run Mac applications. Other operating systems Other x86 operating systems like FreeBSD and OpenSolaris are known to run on the Aspire One. Acer recently announced a new version of the Aspire One to be shipped with Google Android. Storage SSD disks The A110 model ships with an 8 GB or 16 GB solid-state drive (SSD). Early 8 GB models come with the Intel Z-P230, model SSDPAMM0008G1. This SSD has been criticized for its slow read and write speed. Intel lists the drive's maximum speeds as 38 MB/s read and 10 MB/s write. Later models come with the slightly faster Samsung P-SSD 1800. Hard disks The HDD is a regular 2.5-in 5400 rpm SATA drive with 120 or 160 GB. A number of different drives have been reported so far: Seagate ST9120817AS, Western Digital WD1200BEVS, WD1600BEVT, Hitachi HTS543212L9A300, Hitachi HTS543216L9SA00, and Toshiba MK1652GSX.
  5. 5. Storage expansion slot There is also an SD/SDHC storage expansion slot on all models for additional storage (16 GB max. in either slot). On Linux versions this automatically expands the space of the SSD or HDD using aufs. Windows XP models treat it as a normal removable drive. A second slot acts as a standard multi-in-1 flash memory card reader. The 110 BIOS does not support booting an operating system from these slots, however, the 150 has only one card reader slot, which can be used for a bootable SDHC card. For the solid state drive (SSD) version or flash drives, use a non-journalling filesystem such as ext2 to prolong the life of the drive. (Note: it is possible to boot from HD or USB using a /boot partition and initrd that will support accessing a kernel on SD, but this is not booting from SD, as the /boot partition cannot reside there). Power management The Intel Atom platform has a specified maximum TDP of 11.8 W. Individual figures are 2.5 W for the N270 processor, 6 W for the 945GSE chipset and 3.3 W for the 82801GBM I/O controller. The AUO B089AW01 LCD panel is rated at a maximum power consumption of 3 W. Typical read–write power consumption for the SSD is around 0.3 W, and 0.01 W when idle. The different HDDs are rated at about 1.5–2.5 W for read–write operations and around 0.7 W when idle.
  6. 6. The official ratings for the battery are up to 3 hours for the three-cell, and up to 7 hours for the six-cell. Linpus Linux Lite has been optimized by Acer for lower power consumption. Battery life is shorter on HDD configurations with Windows XP, at approximately 2.5 hours for the three-cell. Although the standard three-cell battery is 2.2 Ah, some users have reported 2.4 Ah and 2.9 Ah batteries from the factory. Various suppliers online now carry aftermarket batteries, including the six-cell. Aftermarket nine-cell batteries have recently become available, though as expected are quite heavy, making the Aspire One less lightweight.

  9. 9. Since November 2008 the 3G-enabled model Aspire One A150X-3G is available in Europe, while models with 3G modems will begin shipping in the United Kingdom in December and are denoted by the letter G in their model number. The first generation Aspire One webcam is an Acer Labs International M5608 camera controller with attached 0.3 MP SuYin or 1.3 MP LiteOn CMOS sensor. The Aspire One uses an Intel 945GSE chipset which only supports 2 GiB of RAM. Installing memory modules larger than 2 GiB has caused the Aspire to fail the power-on self-test. The AOD150 is the latest netbook version from Acer. It sports a new 10.1 in screen, and comes standard with a six cell battery except in Canada in which it is still sold with a 3-cell battery. Known issues When either the BIOS password or the HDD password are set, they won't be recognized unless typed in uppercase. If the password was typed with a mix of uppercase and lowercase, it will fail. If it happens with the BIOS password, the BIOS needs to be reflashed, if this happens with the HDD password, the password needs to be changed in the BIOS where the case mix will be properly recognized to a all uppercase password. Acer does not acknowledge the issue, does not mention it when customers call the support line and charges 125$ (US and Canadian customers) to reset the password.
  10. 10. There are many people reporting problems with the LCD screen cracking during only 5–6 months of normal use. Acer are refusing to acknowledge that there is an issue with this product and are charging customers for repairs.
