Crucial 2GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model CT25664BC1067
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works as advertised.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: No issues on an Acer Aspire AO522 (AMD C-50/6250 APU).

Acer Aspire One AO522-BZ897 Diamond Black AMD Dual-Core Processor C-50 (1.00 GHz) 10.1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Lightweight
Excellent keyboard (for a netbook)
Good battery life (6+ hours)
Large, responsive touchpad that is integrated nicely into the palmrest.
Fn key to disable touchpad on-demand.
HDMI Output
WiFi LED intensity varies in correlation to current AP signal strength (very cool)
64-bit CPU
The CPU supports more than 2GB of RAM (unlike Atom processors).
1280x720 HD screen resolution.

Cons: Platter HDD
Backspace key is much smaller than normal. You will hit "=" until you get used to it.
Windows 7 is barely usable with 1GB RAM.

Other Thoughts: The Radeon 6250 is an on-die gpu. It shares system memory, so your OS will report less RAM than is actually installed. E.g., 1GB total RAM = ~750MB available to the computer.

I replaced the memory with a 2GB SODIMM ( and it is much more responsive.

Win7 Starter is a crippled excuse of an OS. I also replaced that with linux.

HP 4GB v135w USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Blue) Model P-FD4GBHP135-EF
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Small form factor
Easily disassembled for an even smaller flash drive!

Cons: Seems slow, but I've been spoiled by dual-channel drives lately. Benchmarks show it's average.

Other Thoughts: Sequential read/write benchmarks:

Write: 4.7 MB/s
dd if=/dev/zero of=tempfile blocksize=1M count=1024 conv=fdatasync,notrunc

Read: 16 MB/s
dd if=tempfile of=/dev/null blocksize=1M count=1024
(average of 4x test iterations)

*blocksize should be b-s but it's censored
