Updating acer aspire one
The only place where the Acer Aspire One feels old is the booting process, as Windows 10 needs approximately 40 seconds for a cold start.Otherwise, it feels just as fast as any other operating system, despite the ancient hardware.But, unlike some other netbooks, the Aspire One hasn't been designed with easy upgrading in mind. We always do this on a sheet to minimise the risk of scratching the case, and to help avoid losing screws - they're less likely to roll of the table. The photographer's been sent to the Moderatrix for discipline... Two further screws are hidden by the AA1's rear rubber feet.The first 512MB is soldered to the motherboard, but there is a DIMM slot for more, and it's facing the base of the machine. We also recommend placing the removed screws in pattern that matches the holes they'll go back into. The feet are held in place with a light adhesive and can be easily (gently does it) prized of with a flat-blade screwdriver.
The only way to get it not to overheat is to go to msconfig and tick off Windows Update, but that's not a real solution.
/Ubuntu8.04 - Contains many tweaks that are likely to work for later releases: Font tweaks; SSD Performance; Reduce SSD Wear; Speed up Firefox; Touchpad tweaks; Optimize screen use; Disable Scrollkeeper; Powersaving. Some are deprecated: Screen tweaks (already works out-of-the-box).
Note: The default font size used by Xubuntu is in many cases unsuitable for the small screen.
