Wow, that _is_ small!

When I put Ubuntu Netbook Edition on a very resource-constrained Acer
Aspire 1, I added an old, used 1GB DIMM -- that cost £5 -- and I later
fitted an SD card in its permanent slot and put /home on there. This
gave it /considerably/ more room to breathe for very little cost. The
only problem is that removing the motherboard to fit the SO-DIMM is
extremely fiddly and took 45min of work.
