Ordered this yesterday,with my staff discount,got it for £314 plus the points and Quidco tracked on sale before vat £8.91,got it delivered to local store for free too...:thumbsup:

Happy with this as i did'nt pay full amount.

It only tracks 3% @ Quidco.
This says it's £399 on site until you click into it....
You say you would welcome feedback.

Well the 2Gb RAM is very generous, but the Celeron CPU is pretty slow.

This web site here ranks all the CPUs.

The Celeron 520 gets a score of 393 (when a core 2 duo gets scores well into the 1000s) and a ranking of 191 (so there are 190 CPUs better than this)

But it is a £349 laptop so you cannot expect a top of the range CPU.

If you are just going to surf the web, write the odd document or play music this laptop will be fine. It will NOT be fine for CPU intensive work like video editing or playing games (the graphics would limit game play anyway).
Thanks for the feedback. Its for my nephew for Christmas so chances are he would expect to play a few games on there so I may look elsewhere then... Thats the top of my budget though so I guess I may struggle...
Both of these below are £399, still ACER and still from Tesco.

But both have dual core processors, so faster than the Celeron.

The Acer Aspire 5520. This ACER has an AMD TK55 CPU and 15.4" screen. This has a 120Gb hard drive.

The Acer Aspire 7520. This has a AMD TK53 CPU (slighly slower) but a 17" screen (if you are not going to lug the laptop around very much). But it only has 1Gb of memory.

I am not really a games person, but I think most laptops are NOT really built for playing games.

Although any decent PC or laptop can play simple games they would struggle with a modern game that requires a decent graphcs performance.

Better check with him what games he may want to play before paying out for a laptop or PC for him. To play top of the range games some people pay over £200 JUST for the graphics card in a PC, some people fit TWO of them).

(Personally I think it is best to play games on a PS3 or XBOX or Wii as that is what they are built for. Leave the PC or laptop for what it is best for)
Thanks mate. May look for those CPUs in a slightly cheaper model if I can find it. Original process was "Just get the best I could find for £300" but then i started creeping... Thanks for the link to [url][/url]. Very useful.
Don't put too much faith in the CPU bench marks, like they say, they are a CPU benchmark only. There is a lot more to the system than just the CPU. Also these are most likely synthetic benchmarks which means in real life the differences will not be so apparent.
He's well into his 360 / xbox live / halo 3 etc so I doubt he'll be expecting anything like that but that CPU doesn't look great anyway. Can't afford the Core 2 duo stuff so may look for others.

Agree theres more than CPU. Not least RAM size / speed but will continue the search for a better one with a similar size screen, gig ram and a CPU that looks a little more up for it...
:thumbsup: Top spec laptop for good price back in stock at 09:00 hrs will sell out quickly again.
