I have the Acer Aspire One with the 8gb flash drive.  I immediately 
upgraded it to 1.5gb ram.  I also changed the Linux install from Linpus 
to Linux Mint 7.  The thing runs like a top and does everything I need 
it to and more.  My only suggestion other than the ram and OS is to buy 
the one with the 6 cell battery.  Mine came with 3 which is just not 
enough.  I just ordered a 9 cell replacement a few days ago.  That ought 
  to take care of that problem :-)
