I just replaced the 3 IDE drives I had in my system with the following:

I didn't get it at Amazon. It was installed at the computer shop and I think they made a mistake since I only paid $150.00 :)

I never realized the kind of bargain I received till YoKenny made his post and I did a little research on the drive I just had installed. :)
Not to worry, I'm sure he made it up in the 4 gigs of ram he sold and installed. :)

@Otaku Ichise

I would add at least 1GB RAM but 2GB would be better.

Its 86x or commonly called 32-bit

The Aero should pass but maybe you need to update the video driver for the NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100 adapter:

Aero
The Aero desktop experience, available in the Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions of Windows 7, mixes cool graphics with useful new ways to manage your desktop.

Thanks, it wasnt necessary to go to Nvidea Website, Windows 7 Updates gave me the drivers for my Nvidea Ge Force Go 6100, dunno if it was from the company Acer who asked Nvidea support for this older laptops, or maybe Nvidea decided to itself since W7 is so nice  ;D
I installed the 64 bit version since i have AMD 64 and seems like a new computer with 3gb of memory ram  ;D

(I see so 86x is 32bit, i shall remember for the future  ::) )
