OK, so I was looking online myself for a HOW-TO GUIDE on upgrading the RAM on the Acer Aspire One series NETBOOKS, but to no avail I couldn't find anything regarding this particular model type. AOD255.
So ... when I purchased my new netbook I decided to make a video on how-to upgrade the RAM. This is my 1st 'upgrade tutorial' type video so I'm kinda nervous and stuttering and I'm a bit shaky with the camera and the picture sometimes goes fuzzy. If you can get past that I'm sure this video will be quite informative and helpful to you in upgrading the ram. Its a very simple process and it can be done in about 10-15 minutes, with patience =).
The RAM I used in this video to upgrade my NETBOOK is as follows:
Mushkin Essentials 2GB DDR2 667MHz PC2-5300 CL4 SODIMM
I recommend either using this same type of memory or the KINGSTON brand of SODIMM memory modules as that is the make of the 1GB stick that comes with the system.
Kingston ValueRAM 2GB 667MHz DDR2 Non-ECC CL5 SODIMM (KVR667D2S5/2G)
Once you upgrade the ram and uninstall all the pre-bundled 'BLOATWARE' you will notice that the AOD255 runs pretty quick. Although I am disappointed with the lack of features in 'WINDOWS 7 STARTER' this can also be fixed with a quick WINDOWS ANYTIME UPGRADE.
I manged to find a good deal and I purchased a WINDOWS ANYTIME UPGRADE KEY to HOME PREMIUM on eBay for $30 USD. I notice it runs much better and I am satisfied to have the full functions of Windows 7 which should have been included with the netbook from the start.
Windows 7 Starter? Microsoft what where you thinking?? =(
all the best
