Is this a good deal? CHF222 for Acer Aspire One AOD 255E-13DQws Netbook

Acer Aspire One AOD 255E-13DQws Netbook at

I have uses for such a thing.

Tablets not quite there for me. Android is too rough out of the box. Not impressed by vendor support or unofficial ROMS.

Smartphones are too painful to do more than read email.

Larger tablets are too expensive.

Booting my iMac is sooo slooow.

I have this with a smaller memory, nice wide screen, user friendly keyboard (which I need with my dif alphabets stickers all over keys and poor sight), and I have been super happy so far. I had Asus before, both of them crashed, for poor hardware. So, 1 plus Acer, affordable and user friendly.

Wife has one, and she loves it.

Edit: Wife posts faster than husband .

I would go for larger memory, though, that's the only thing. So with your specs you should be happy (and mine was 100fr more, auch).

Re: Is this a good deal? CHF222 for Acer Aspire One AOD 255E-13DQws Netbook

I splurged on some exra RAM for my Netbook, only to find, once I had opened it up, that I had bought the wrong type. I will get round to selling it on Ricardo or eBay. But for now, I would like to do the upgrade.

Can anyone tell me if the attached pic (a photo of the actual 1GB DIMM in my AOD255E) is the same form factor as these?

http://www.abbo-shop.ch/en/products/962720

"SODIMM DDR3 1333 2GB 204pin 1.5 Volt SST DDR1333, PC3-10600, 128M x 8, 8-Chip, Retail Pack"

Or this (no pic, but identical product as far as I can tell)?

http://www.techmania.ch/details.aspx...sessionID=1210

"SODIMM DDR-3 1333 2GB 204pin 1.5 Volt SST DDR1333, PC3-10600, 128M x 8, 8-Chip, Retail Pack"

May I assume the AOD-255E will take a 2GB DIMM? Or is 1GB the limit?

It does support 2GB RAM upgrade, but watch out the clocking.
