Unless you have a specific need for your Bios to be updated in order to fix a hardware issue... you're better off not updating it. More than likely it wont give you any speed improvements on your Netbook anyway, Driver updates are always a no-brainer but you're better off leaving the Bios alone unless you absolutely have to change it.

If you're looking for speed improvements try looking into your acer's model number online and see how much memory it can handle. Chances are it only came with 1 gb and may be able to double that. If you're unfamiliar with how to look it up you could post your Model or Part Number from the bottom of the Acer Aspire and we can look it up for you.
