Acer Aspire 521 HDMI Netbook £189.99 @ Currys delivered, or £199.99 reserve and collect at PC World

koksykoksy

Just spotted this online. Seems a good price for a netbook with HDMI port? Thinking of trading in my clunky old laptop and getting another £50 off making £149.99. Instore price is £219.99 so need to reserve and collect for £199.99. Despite the website description below, it DOES have a webcam - i've just called them to check.

Alternatively, this is available for home delivery at Currys for £189.99 using the code 10POUND (£10 off £199 spend) before midnight tonight. I've just done a dummy order to test the code and it works.

Was £299.99 (16/09/10 - 30/09/10) The Acer Aspire One 521 netbook has the power-sipping AMD V-series V105 Processor and comes with Microsoft's Genuine Windows® 7 Starter operating system pre-installed. A useful 160GB hard drive provides plenty of on-the-move storage space, whilst the 1GB of installed DDR3 RAM ensures that everyday applications can run smoothly.

Stylishly finished in black, the Acer Aspire One 521 netbook is built around a 10.1" LCD screen, with low-energy LED backlighting contributing towards a great battery life of up to six hours. This slim and lightweight machine can be used comfortably over extended periods, with a near full-sized keyboard making lengthy typing sessions an effortless experience.

Connectivity in the Acer Aspire One 521 also impresses, with the inclusion of WiFi technology, an HDMI port for hooking up to an external display, a 5-in-1 media card reader, three USB 2.0 ports, an RJ-45 Ethernet port, and more.

Enjoy a fun and reliable computing experience on the move without feeling weighed down, by choosing this good-looking Acer Aspire One 521 netbook!

    why is this cold, is it not a good deal?

    How is this for media playback; some of the previous Acer Aspire One netbooks have suffered when streaming HD video from the web, so is the HDMI output actually worth bothering with? If it is, then this is a good deal, my D150 model is still going strong and is perfect for doing everyday stuff like web browsing, office stuff etc.

    This review is for a different processor. I doubt you get the same result on this slow V105 and with only 1gb ram. You would need to upgrade.

    can you trade in an old desktop to get £50 off?

    Good deal for the dough!

    you need to watch out as 99% of the reviews for this are for the better spec'd processor, i was on the verge of buying one at the higher price untill i noticed.

    Terms and conditions for the £50 0ff your laptop

    Limit of one trade in per new laptop purchased. Trade in unit must be a laptop and must have one of the following processors: Intel® Celeron™, Intel® Pentium™ 4, Intel® Pentium™ M, Intel® Pentium™ dual core, Intel® Core™ 2 Solo, Intel® Core™ 2 Duo, Intel® Core™ 2 Quad, Intel® Centrino™, Intel® Extreme Edition, Intel® Core™ i3, Intel® Core™ i5, Intel® Core™ i7, AMD Sempron™, AMD Athlon™ X2, AMD Turion™ X2. It must also have an optical drive (e.g. CD/DVD), power up and log into an OS, include the correct power supply and battery, not be locked by a password and not have any significant cosmetic damage, i.e. the keyboard and screen must be undamaged and the casing and hinges intact.

    so doesnt quite seem worth it considering that you will probably get as much if not more on ebay. might help some people but £50 for a laptop with those processors may not be a good deal for many

    good deal but put my laptop on ebay as to many t&c for £50 off got £110 after expenses taken off
    koksy
    Well i've just been and bought one and traded in my old 4 year old celeron laptop with a dieing battery. Reserve and collect worked fine. Managed to refuse all the offers from the shop assistant to buy extra software...

    I've just downloaded a couple of full 1080p trailers, and i'd rate playback with Windows Media player as 9/10. Very smooth on all but the fastest moving scenes where there is a really minimal amount of jerkiness that you have to look really closely to see.

    The webcam is also quite good at 1.3megapixels. Battery life is showing approx 5hrs30 minutes at full charge.

    I like the fact that the battery doesn't stick out of the back like some netbooks. I am not too keen on the trackpad buttons but theyll do for the price. Speakers are, comparitively speaking, surprisingly good given how slim this netbook is.

    I'm very happy with this laptop for £150, but i think it would still be a good buy for £200. Use code 10POUND at Currys for £10 off until 23:59 tonight. It works- i've just checked it.

    Guys I want something very small and portable that would allow me to read ebooks/browse the net. What would be faster at doing this a netbook like this or a tablet pc (ipad types and stuff)

    THIS CPU beats atom N270, N280 and N450
    It is on par with Intel Atom N470 @ 1.83GHz

    Can you still use the voucher codes for reserve and collect? Just did a couple of mock checkouts and didnt see anywhere to enter any codes.
    koksy
    No you can't - only for home delivery. I did reserve and collect though as I had to trademy old laptop in.
