The Acer Aspire One may not be out yet, but one member of the Mobile01 forums got his hands on one. And then he ripped it apart and posted a whole slew of images of the computer’s innards.

There aren’t any real surprises, but as jkkmobile points out, we learned that the RAM won’t be easy to upgrade since it’s soldered to the motherboard. There’s also no connector in the 3G modem slot, which means you won’t be able to slap your own card in the computer without some serious modding skills.

  1. F2 to get the BIOS
    F12 to change the boot order
    Realtek RTL8102E ethernet controller
    Looks like a PATA SSD so can’t substitute SATA-II SSD from OCZ
    2400mAH Li-ion
    Wonder how one changes the language ?

    1. How come he said the RAM is soldered to the MB when the pics clearly show the dim slot on the underside of the MB with a 512mb stick in it? It’s like the WIND – it has some ram on the MB, but is expandable…granted, not easily!

      1. You are 100% right, you can upgrade it to 1.5 G RAM, you can add a one G RAM to it, most people don’t read (look) carefully…
