I had been thinking about this, http://www.comet.co.uk/shopcomet/product/536164/ACER-AS5535-624G16MN
I only need it to run sage, small business software & a bit of surfing, which would be the better buy?

My current one is ACER bought in december last year. wiht in first 5 months it made 2 visits to the repair because blu ray drive was not functioning and the second one for the battery...it only lasts 6 mins......what a crap!!!
IF I CAN INFLUENCE THE DECISION OF ANY LAPTOP BUYER I MAKESURE THAT THEY DONT BUY AN ACER.

I am in complete agreement with you. On top of that...acer laptops are made from the refurbished parts and they do give up soon. if any buyer got a chance of adding another 150 pounds please go elsewhere but dont touch acer.

Why are there a couple of absolute idiots on this thread?

YOU CANNOT say 'parts go on acer laptops' because the statement doesn't make sense - Acer do not make the vast majority of the parts.

You say the blu-ray drive went. Who manufactured the drive? What drive does this machine have? Ditto with the battery - how new was it when you bought it? Li-ion chemistry degrades over time, chances are you got a machine stored incorrectly or simply old.

There are very few poor brands component-wise as semiconductors have to meet strict QA requirements. I agree that one must be careful to avoid laptops made with the few rare cases where components are known not to be upto scratch (See Nvidia G84/G86 GPUs) but I wouldn't dare blame the system integrators for those issues - especially when there are no alternatives.

Voted HOT - Great deal for a Core2, 17", Bluray, discrete GPU.

A DVI to HDMI like this will give it HDMI connection to LCD if required. Cost about £4 from fleabay.

I have found ACER laptops and PCs to be excellent. Bought around 15 of them over the last 5 years or so on behalf of family and friends. I've got the Acer Ferrari which I bought back in 2004, never had a problem with it. Still runs perfectly.

Also, those of my relatives or friends that have had problems have had excellent support from ACER. Why? They've registered the products with them and most have taken out the Acer Advantage 3 year extended warranties.
When the laptops or PCs have had to go back to ACER a courier collects and within a week the machine is returned all sorted.
My niece had a problem with her ACER laptop and it was out of warranty. ACER still sent a courier to collect and fixed the problem (with the hard-disk) for nothing. And this was like 10 days before Christmas 2008.
So in my book, ACER are okay. You just need to make sure that you register your product at least so the support people have something to go on.

i bought this for £380 few weeks ago from Dixons, This Laptop has a fault on this specific model which Dixons have admitted to me, upon booting up first time every day it wont boot up, just a blank screen, you have to shut down by force and then reboot then you get the start normally or start in safe mode screen but it does then boot up, you experience this 8 out of 10 times on boot up. The laptop requires a BIOS upgrade by downloading a patch from the Acer website, dixons were initially great but once i downloaded the patch, which does take a while, i had to call them back to ask how o install as it required unzipping and once unzipped was still confused as how to install and I consider myself pretty competent with computers but still could not install the patch for the bios upgrade. Called dixons back they were useless and unhelpfull, infact they suggested as its a software issue i call the premium rate number, i asked how much that would cost they repled £1 a min but "oh they will call you back after 20 mins" aaarrrgggghhhh, ireally wanted to get hold of this person and smack a frying pan accross thier face, sooooo flippin infuriating, i spent nearly £400 on a laptop and they suggest I call a premium line number because i didnt take additional warranty out, what the dum xxxx didnt appreaciate that i had the laptop for less than 10 days, so really peee'd of at this stage i said take it back please, i want a refund which i got. I just bought the acer netbook posted yesterday.
Although this is a gr8 machine dont have the patience to put up with poor customer services.

Also BE WARNED, i asked acer direct if i can take out the additional 2 - 3 year warranty extension on thi laptop, they confirmed i CANNOT as its a refurbished laptop..just so that you are aware..

It is heavy and big so if youre lookig for portability dont touch it, mine sounded like a jet engine to be fair.

Finally yes its does have a good spec, ive had 2 acers in the pastt hey havent been without thier problems but then im sure other laptops have issues as well, but this time i thought I dont need the hassle.

** The reason why there are so many of these refurbs **

When these laptops were originally released/sold, massive amounts of them suffered from inherent bootup issues. Starting the laptop would fail, and would have to be repeated another one or two times (sometimes more) before it would actually bootup properly.

This affected massive amounts of these model laptops, that were sent back to Acer/returned to store. Acer refurbed all these, fixing the issue (with a bios update), and now sell them as refurbs.

Whether this does / doesn't affect your decision to buy this, I'll leave that to you!

Oh, one final thing, these were still cheaper than this 3 months ago.

At the risk of being branded an idiot - I have 4 grown up kids and between us we have had many laptops - 4 of which have been acers. The other brands were replaced to upgrade, three of the 4 acers failed. We won't buy another - regardless of very experienced members saying the components are fine MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE is they are crap.

The price is great but it isn't cheap if it keeps needing repair!

That DVI-->HDMI adapter will only give you video at the HDMI end, so you'll need to pipe the audio seperately from via another cable. Just in case anyone thinks that adapter will do them both.

Acer support isn't the best, but they are good value and as reliable as any other brand.

Lets not forget they are the worlds second largest supplier of notebooks. The largest being HP, and I have had more problems with 20 of those than the 90 Acers I support!

Why are there a couple of absolute idiots on this thread?

.


Im wondering why there is an idiot out there supporting acer?
I clearly said that the parts used by acer are refurbs but not the originals. I am a software engineer for 11 years and I know about the parts softwares etc., Its been my 6th laptop in my life(i change laptop every 2 years or so). I CAN DIFFERENTIATE THE PERFORMANCE.

I can talk at lengths regarding the carging and discharging cycles of the batteries. But yet, a battery cannot undergo all its life cycles within 4 months. How come a brand new laptop within two months develops a fault with blu ray drive and battery????unless ACER used refurb pieces in them.

For me the logic is simple, my blu ray drive was replaced with a new one (According to ACER a refurbished is also a brand new one)....and the old one must have been repaired and that would go into one of the laptops now the people gonna buy.

I am with you.

I dont understand why the real idiots think all others are idiots

All ACER would be buyers!

you are buying an ACER cause its around 150 quids cheaper over dell or hp or sony

Imagine a situation where mother board developed a malfunction just the day after your warranty expired. what do you do with it other than checking it in the bin. Do you think this to happen is hypothetic???just check on reviews over internet they speak volumes. At teh same time hp or sony or dell developing a fault is a rare case while acer developing a fault is a common case.

IMO, Acer laptop is OK and good value. but the quality and their service is quite poor.
#26
Another ex-Acer user here.

The power jack failed on an aspire a LITTLE over a year later (so out of warranty!) This was through overheating and internal sparking from a worn socket. This isn't unheard of....

What was strange from my perspective was that oddly enough - acerspareparts provide no other replacement spare parts for this range of laptops OTHER than this exact power board, and at a cost of £60 exc delivery + vat!! The laptop itself cost no more than £250 iirc, so this tiny power board supposedly represents a fifth of the value of the laptop (ridiculous.)


They well knew this was an area of contention on this particular laptop, hence providing the "spare part". They provided it at a substantially marked up price because of it. Now I was "experienced" enough to open the laptop myself and do the repair - but I can imagine any 3rd party would have been charged at least £50 for the repair + £60 for the tiny power board (which in terms of materials and production costs I'd imagine wouldn't amount to anything over £10)!



So yeah - I'll steer clear from Acers in future...cheap they are, cheerful they're not.
#27
Not a bad deal. But I have just bought a very similar spec refurb laptop from dixons but it's a HP, I think the model number is G70-120EA or something, 17" with blu-ray, costs £360 with the 5% discount, seems great so far. I would definately go for the HP over this. I'm suprised it wasn't post instead of this one.

This machine had an inherent fault to start with that is why they are going to refurb
