    Transcend 8GB SDHC card arrived today ($24 plus shipping). It took about 4 seconds to insert the card into the netbook's secondary SD card slot and it was instantly recongnized.

    Yes, 12 free gigs. The operating system and applications take up an additional 2 gigs.

    12 gigs is plenty for what the computer was designed to do. My additional 8 gig SD card in my EEE is empty.

    XP takes up pretty much the whole 4 gig soldered SD card on my computer so a lot my programs are stored on the D: drive SD card.

    I'ce also mounted the extra 8 gig SD card onto the computer so I can store programs there.

    Overall I'm extremely pleased with the Aspire One.

    Yeah, the 3-cell battery is sucky but recharge time is fairly quick.

    It certainly draws interest at whatever wifi hotspot I'm in esp. from the ladies :ladiesman:

    I put a Patriot 16gb SDHC Class 6 card in my Aspire One (AAO) and it was instantly recoginized.

    I bought mine to keep/carry in my Goldwing motorcycles trunk. No moving parts to worry about bouncing around and it takes up very little room.

    I can keep it recharged from the 12volt plug in the trunk while I drive/park.

    how about posting a pic of your AA1 recharging from inside the trunk? That'd be cool!
