Looking for a 17" laptop that I will use for internet connection, viewing movies & some video editing. I may also use it to download movies & music.

I recently order the Dell VOSTRO 1700 for £562.00 al in. Unfortunately, their waiting time has gone up from 4 weeks to 10 weeks (& even that is not guaranteed). Therefore, I cancelled my order.

Now I urgently need a 17" laptop (within 2 weeks). Are there any options available that could rival the DELL vostro and any make I should stay away from?

Are ACER any good?

Thanks.

Robie

Absolutely.

Oh hell! :shock: I thought Acer was a good name after Dell. I was thinking of going 4 9304Wsmi (similar spec to Vostro - just slightly less) for £550.00 from Laskeys. Any other makes that I could try - may be Toshiba?

My budget is £600 tops - including delivery. Getting desperate now.

I'm also looking. This is the best 17" that meets my criteria...

Fujitsu Siemens Xi 2528

17"
HDMI
Santa Rosa chipset
Wireless N
Subwoofer
Remote control

Link

Also has advanced features such as

RAID
e-SATA

So new I can't even find a price on it

HDMI is still rare, DVI with HDCP (which can become HDMI with a dvi to hdmi cable easily) is slowly appearing

802.11n is only standard on top end laptops really and an extra on others if available

Subwoofer again not always standard and a bonus really, (i;d recommend some good headphones over laptop speakers anyday, like these: here)

Remote control is rare due to space it takes up in a laptop and tends to be on 17" + media/video/tv type laptops which carry a rip off premium.

I still think the vostro 1700 is good even with a delay, you should be able to get a discount, free delivery or not for having to wait so long and family/friends can always take the laptop out to you at uni.
