    According to this post I found, concerning SSD, the following will greatly increase read and write performance on your SSD-disk (which happens to be the type of disk the Acer Aspire One has, the Linux-version anyway).

    Simply do the following:

    $ sudo su -
    # mousepad /boot/grub/grub.conf

    Now, add the elevator=noop option to the kernel-line, making this line:

    kernel /boot/bzImage ro root=LABEL=linpus vga=0x311 splash=silent loglevel=1 console=tty1 quiet nolapic_timer

    look like this:

    kernel /boot/bzImage ro root=LABEL=linpus vga=0x311 splash=silent loglevel=1 console=tty1 quiet nolapic_timer elevator=noop

    Save the file, close it, and reboot. Some have reported that there’s an increase in writespeeds going from 7.1MB/s to 9.1MB/s by adding this change. If it works or not, well, you can be the judge of that. :)
    Since I got it from another web site ,I have no credit for it BUT IT IS WORKING !!!

    Looks to me like the AA1 already enables this kernel option at boot time:
    Code:
    [[email protected] ~]# cat     /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler
    noop [deadline]

    That's what I thought at first too when I saw that output.
    But...
    It's actually saying that you are using deadline instead of noop.
    This is the output on my desktop:
    Code:
    $ cat     /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler
    noop anticipatory deadline [cfq] 
    
    It seems that the scheduler between [ and ] is used.
    In my case its cfq in your example its deadline.
