Can't really see a use for 6GB RAM in that, considering the rest of the spec.
A colleague of mine was looking at something similar (Acer again), but with a P6100 CPU and 4GB RAM for £270.
He'll be in a 11:00 so I'll get the link from him then :p.

Yeah 1.86GHz is a bit rubbish

+1. All a bit 2008/9 tech i'm afraid. The extra ram is obviously intended to make it something 'special' in order to shift old stock. I'd go for a higher rated dual core cpu and preferably,for a few more quid, move up a league and get one with a core i3 processor. Not voted either way.

Why the concern over 2008/2009 tech?

It's not like chip manufacturers have had money burning a hole in their pockets to invest in developing new process technology. Computer advancements have slowed down dramatically since people realised power hungry pentium 4's were reaching fundamental limits and overkill for most tasks. Limits in silicon physics play an increasingly important role here.

Sure, Intel are rolling out 32nm today but 45nm is still in the majority of stock and fine for most people. Not having to upgrade the RAM is a bonus for most people. I only ever upgrade a computer when I cannot add RAM to my existing machine.

But considering the spec of that machine, anyone needing apps that require that much RAM wouldn't go for that laptop in the first place.
That extra RAM, which will be unused, has bumped the price up unnecessarily. 3GB of RAM and £20-£30 cheaper would have made the laptop a much better bargain.

It just seems like they are trying to offload excess stock of RAM which the laptop doesn't require, and forcing users to pay for an upgrade that they will never have needed.

The reason i didn't vote hot or cold is because i think the offer is an ok deal as you do get a fair amount of hardware for the money. Just advising that IMHO,there are more powerful and more modern machines (albeit without 6GB of ram), available for around the same outlay. They will be more versatile, nicer to use, hopefully provide more longevity and hence better value for money. Incidentally, for anyone on a tight budget, i'm a fan of open box/refurbs carefully chosen from a trusted supplier. Had 4 and all have been delivered in A1 mint condition.
