Acer Aspire One – Replacing SSD with 1.8″ HDD

Acer Aspire One A few days ago we mentioned that tnkgirl Mobile had been modding their SSD-based 1.8″ Acer Aspire One to handle bluetooth. Now they’ve since published a how-to guide (complete with lots of pictures).

The SSD is slightly smaller in the area where storage is located, compared to the HDD version (which takes a 2.5″ Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive). As such, the space is limited and you are basically having to work with 1.8″ size devices.

tnkgrl Mobile replaced their SSD with a 1.8″ 60GB Samsung HDD. The Samsung drive has 8MB of buffer and spins at 4200rpm.
