    Anyone know the right allocation of memory?

    It's been discussed in a couple of other threads. I think the assumption was that some of it was being taken up by swap. I haven't seen anyone post the partitioning arrangement of the SSD... I'd be kind of curious to see that.

    Hi using qtparted I noticed that 6,5 GB are used for primary partition and 1 GB is used for linux-swap partition.

    Where is the hidden partition for recovery? Can I delete this partition?

    There is no recovery partition to my knowledge, that would be stupid of them to waste space on the already tiny SSD on that. 7.5 GB is nearly there, but it seems there would be another ~200 MB in there somewhere.

    i think that ther's no recovery partition. I'm wrong at first when i suppose that. But the swap partition can be less of 1gb?

    The swap can be less than 1 GB... On a freshly installed Xubuntu I've kept mine at about 300 MBs and didn't notice any unusual slow down.

    cheers

    Maybe it could be better to buy 1 GB DDR2, mount it on our acer and delete the Swap partition due to SSD is a flash based memory.
