Hi can you upgrade a acer aspire one with a bigger hard drive

Glad to HELP YOU!

When you will go search for a new BIGGER HARD DRIVE for your machine check to have THE SAME PARAMETERS as the previous one:
* to be a SLIM HDD
* to be a SATA HDD

Once you got it you have to open your machine (the back cover) and to replace the hard drive. To replace the hard drive means to UNPLUG two connectors from the old HDD and to replug them (the same position) into the new one.

And you will be good to go!

You have to know how you want to use the laptop.
Ask yourself:
Is it a desktop replacement or is it to be the primary PC?
Are you going to need storage space?
Will you be working with spreadsheets or gaming?
Will you be editing photos, videos or Music?
How much money do you want to spend?
The more you do with it the more power you will need (translation = faster processor).
The more you install or store the bigger storage space you will need (translation = Hard drive).
This can all add up to a very expensive purchase.
My formula…(Need / Want) - $$$ = Your new Laptop
Processor cannot easily be upgraded so spend you money there…You can always upgrade the memory and get and external USB hard drive later.

You have mentioned that you are looking at replacing the hard drive with a SATA one. Since the G4 iMacs use PATA hard drives (an older standard) you will have to make sure that the drive you use is a PATA.

Aside from that, you should be able to upgrade to a reasonably large hard drive up to 500GB and then format the drive for a mac.

The only real trouble you will have in my opinion will be the installation as the process for taking apart a G4 iMac is very advanced. There are a few guides on how to do this, just make sure that your skill level is advanced enough to attempt the upgrade. Also, of course, make sure you have backed up all of your data and everything before you start... that can mean a world of difference to you later on if anything goes wrong.

I would personally take a trip to the Apple store and talk to a genius about this sort of upgrade, or look at other upgrade options such as a bigger external hard drive because there are many complications in this upgrade and those two options are easier.

If you are interested in attempting the upgrade yourself you can look at this explanation of the process, it is quite thorough and has pictures showing internals and the process.

If at the end of that you want to go ahead and open your box up by all means do and I will be here to offer as much support as I can.
