    I don't understand why you'd need 1TB in your One, but whatever...

    If you purchase the HDD version, you can replace its drive with pretty much any SATA 2.5" drive you want.
    If you purchase the SSD version, the easiest route would be to install a ZIF 1.8" drive to replace the 8GB or 16GB SSD. But you'll be limited to 200GB I think.

    If you want a 1TB drive for your AA1, just get one of the many 1TB USB external drives and connect it :lol:

    Not necessarily. Check the specs on the manufacturers' web sites.

    Some crazy insane SSD capacities there (in a form of HDD).

    There's a 1TB model on amazon, but in 3.5 inch format.

    ....regarding that favour, just leave a signed blank cheque on the forum, I'll drop by and pick it up later.

    AFAIK, the biggest 2.5" drive is a Seagate one (500 GB).

    You're gonna have to check the specs. Read/write speeds, etc. But really, the time difference between two SSDs is neglectible. You won't notice the difference.

    that 300+400+Misc Costs= 700+
    Why dont you get an Dual Core UMPC ???

    Rather than dropping so much cash into a Cheap Acer that is designed for low budget ?

    Just a suggestion b/c i seeing you spend enough cash to buy 1 more Acer One w/ extra cash

    HDD has a disadvantage with it's hardware, because it uses spinning platters all the time. This mechanical device will produce more heat than SSD on the long run. Granted that linpus and windows will use page flipping every few seconds.

    SSD has a disadvantage with its cost. SSD is more expensive per MB/GB and it has lower capacity than HDD.

    There is no clear winner (if there was, this decision would be easy to make), you just gotta find what you need to fulfill your requirements.

    I didn't get what Rewind was saying...
    Was rewind stating that his/her age was 15 ?
    or
    That he/she Doesn't own a AAO but a Sony Viao?
    or
    What else ?
