>Features of Product: 4GB of Ram for multi tasking.

Makes me laugh when companies say this.

You can multi task with 2Gb of Ram, or even 1Gb of RAM, you dont need 4Gb.

In fact for most "home" users 4Gb is totally over the top as most home users would never use more than 2Gb of it.

But memory is cheap so what the heck.

hmmm... no bluetooth either... is it me or is this a basic spec lappy?

So why not just go for the Acer with the 500GB drive http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/470587/acer-aspire-5738z-15-6-laptop-398-0/:?

Having more always helps but 32 bit vista can only use 3gb at most so 1gb is never used unless you upgrade to a 64 bit operating system


That's not true.

You certainly don't get ALL of the 4Gb, but depending on the machine, I get more than 3.3Gb used, PLUS a substantial bit more with the integrated Graphics memory - 320Mb currently!
Some motherboards seem to allow even more than that.
Memory is so cheap, you save almost nothing by having just 3Gb, so you might as well get a good chunk of the extra 1Gb for so little.

Does anyone know if the Vista 7 upgrade disks to be sent out in October will have both the 32 and 64 bit versions?

Edit : Windows 7 not Vista 7

You will only get what you have now. If you have 32 (Premium) now, you will only get 32 (Premium) version of Windows 7.

Shame you bought it, for that money you could get a good spec reliable laptop with decent warranty


You can always return it within 7 days for a full refund!

My Debian server is happily multitasking away with 256Mb. Does its job perfectly well as well, with all of the mundane stuff like file downloading, home domain controller, DHCP, DNS, firewall, caching etc.

4GB indeed lol.

Yes you need that if you're a graphic designer or gamer but for the general user? On a 15" ACER laptop?

Oh go on then - which good spec reliable laptop with decent warranty can you get for £379?

It'll be similar to the 1972 LED Digital watch I have in the back of a drawer somewhere then - it does what it is supposed to very well too, but ask it to re-encode a video and it just coughs :whistling:

Getting a bit silly now, but of course you started it! The arguments about Linux are about as irrelevant as that, but hey don't let a good opportunity to troll about Linux spoil an otherwise reasonable discussion

Funny, I have Ubuntu 9 on a laptop in the next room, and it isn't that dramatically different to the way Windows XP runs on it, probably because it is a graphical display just as Windows is, and isn't just running a command line shell without any of the heavy performance that demands. In fact it is fine, but not a jot of use for some of the things I want to do, which is why I just play about with it, and when I want to do something specific, and serious, (on software that there is NO Linux equivalent too!) I use my Quad Core Vista machine. (Which effectively means about 95% of the time!)

Most people don't have separate machines to play about with, and only have one multi-purpose machine, so they want it to do everything, therefore 4Gb in that is very nice thank you, and it means there will be no problem running shed loads of stuff on it at the same time if the user wants to.

Odds on it will run multi-boot and Linux fine too, if the user wants too, and the extra few quid for all that "spare" memory won't be a problem there either, and it will actually all get used then too!

My point was that it is horses for courses. The laptop in question would doubtless cough if you ran a server with as much as that Linux box is doing -- 4GB or no 4GB.

That's the point -- simply throwing power at a problem doesn't make it go away. That'll be why a good 60% of the internet runs on Posix platforms (the other 40% being older Cisco stuff).

Windows is crap at multitasking -- and that is why we're seeing more and more bloat on the PCs we have to use, for no appreciable gain.

And it's also why my current work project is taking a whole load of VPNs off Windows boxes -- cleaning up the mess after someone who thought that M$ could handle the pressure. It couldn't. Too processor intensive, too many threads, too much complexity.

Windows does pretty pictures very well -- but even there it's beaten by that other Posix platform that graphic designers use!

Yes, Windows is the best at some things -- namely those things that there is no Linux equivalent for.

Ok its a tenner more and only 2gb memory but the rest of the spec makes the Acer look well over priced, plus HP is a top brand where as Acer is near the bottom
http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/asp/versions.asp?rewrite=HP_Compaq_615_Athlon_QL-64_Laptop_NX561EA&pagetype=version&page=



Rep added for not saying Dell - we use HP laptops at work, treat them like crap and very few of them fall apart. - Can't see how the HP is anywhere near as well spec'd as the Acer, the AMD Athlon_QL-64 is actually slower than an Intel T4200 http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Processors-Benchmarklist.2436.0.html. As for the Acer op works for Tesco any problems (and agreed there might be with an Acer) return it to Tesco under sale of goods Act :-D
