Acer Aspire One problems
Acer may have taken a big chunk of the Laptot market but there is a defect with the Aspire One that makes it suffer from what is known as 'The Black Screen of Death'. Basically after about 3 weeks of use the laptot will not boot. It is down to a flakey BIOS and needs changing.
Unfortunately not many people know about this because nobody is reporting it on news sites, or at least I have not seen people reporting it. My one died after 3 weeks (exactly!) and I sent it back and got a replacement, but recently I discovered a discussion on Fedora Forums about it and it appears quite a few people have suffered from this issue. It has also been discussed on other forums.
From what I gather updating the BIOS solves the problem but the majority of users will be unable to do this!!!
