I've had good luck with my Acer travelmate, and this
Acer Aspire has been suggested by a friend as a replacement.
Anything glaring that I should be aware of?
Thank you! That's helpful.
I've got an old 1.8ghz Acer Aspire, and I'm happy with it, but it's showing it age now. (HDD size is the main issue)
I still recommend Acer's to friends/family if they ask for my advice.
When I work on any new/ish laptop now, I get very jealous, because they've improved so much since I bought mine. If I had some spare money, I'd be *very* tempted by that deal myself...
PS. Don't forget to go through Quidco if you're with them...
Ohhh, I'd forgotten about that - I'm not with them but I with other things like them... thank you!
My local minister's daughter had one and it'd given her nothing but trouble, I'm afraid.
She doesn't have it, now, coz it seems that she wouldn't allow some lad to do norty things, with her, at a party.
So, with the subtlety expected of students, he urinated on her laptop.
She was only a ministors daughter but I wouldn't put anything pastor.
My dad has one and likes it very much - obviously he's not using any downloading sites like limewire or gaming so it's not getting a real work out.
Word of warning Acer's support is rubbish...
The best laptops are:
Lenovo (4 year warranty)
HP (value for money/spec)
Well, I've also found this... ?
I've had three lappies in three days to fix at one stage. Acer, HP, and Toshiba, guess which was easiest, and it wan't Acer or HP, the next easiest wasn't Toshiba or Acer. So the one that was most trouble, you got it, ACER! Unless they've improved their software setup, there was nothing on the box to tell me how to create a recovery CD, despite the fact that they didn't supply one. If are looking at ACER, get the salesman to show you how to create the CD or you could be in deep do dos thime a reload comes about.
I went for this, in the
Thanks for the help!
I was being obtuse, you are correct in that I'm no fan of the Acer, but, by the same token, my experience with Acer Lappies is limited.
Thanks for the info DAZ, there was nowt on the ACER website that even came close to telling me this and the lappie certainly wouldn't. Hopefully I'll never need to remember that, but then, if I need to, I hope I do!
