Great price and great spec.
#3
It does seem a great spec for a good price but i think Play have made an error with the screen resolution.Every other site that lists this exact model number Acer Aspire 6930G - 643G25Bn has the resolution as being 1366x768 not the full HD 1920x1080 that Play claim so check it out before you buy.

Brilliant ! Brilliant ! Brilliant !
Voted brilliant.

Very good point, and interesting to see that Play no longer says what the resolution is... !

Yes you are correct. I just checked and found that model number LX.AUU0X.273 is only 1366x768. Even so, the inclusion of blue ray drive made me vote hot.
#6
Can this be easily updated to windows 7 ?
#7
I have just bought an acer 5536 rm74 (i know i sound as though i know what i am talking bout but i bought it after i saw a hot deal on here and i am very pleased, its better than what i could have chosen!)

it said it had blu ray, but it doesnt...thats not a problem, its a great lappy!

acers seem to come with a lot more spec but maybe the build quality isnt as good as the high end ones...but ya pays ya money and takes ya choice..

anyway...i was going to say....my screen resolution is 1368 by 768? I think this one is the same......but also , if you want it for blu ray , then check it definitely has it
#8
i bought mine and it was the same deal, i went to the acer site and paid for the windows 7 upgrade, it sent me a to dodgy looking site..lol.. but 2 weeks later and i have just had an email today to say that they are posting windows 7 to me and it cost £12.78 (admin fees! )
#9
Only if Dell could up with a simular deal.
#10
The Windows 7 update at that price sounds great. Is it also possible to get the same deal with this laptop ?
#11
i went to the acer website (there is a hot deal on here that links to it) and i think it said that any new acer is eligible...check their site though, i got the big hairy one to check it all out!
#12
im typing on this now can confirm 1366 x 768 - amazing laptop though - upgraded to 4gb and running win 7 64 bit like a dream

dont forget for about 35 quid you can buy 3 years warranty as well

Just a heads up, i've had three 6935G models and they've all been poor build quality and went fault very quickly. Main issue was the keyboard - it stopped registering all of my keystrokes - specifically affected was the right hand side of the keyboard.

Acer would never admit its a fault but three new laptops in a row? Come on!

Also, their firmwares are awful - the newest one for the 6935g renders the media buttons on the keyboard completely unusable.

Two of the three had a "Noisy" hinge which i know was going to break any time soon.

I would avoid Acer - poor build quality = poor experience.

Acer Windows 7 upgrade info here http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/512413/upgrade-to-windows-7-for-acer-lapto?t=512413
I have a similar one to this one >http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/448917/acer-6930g-16-laptop-p7450-2-13ghz-
I can confirm it has a resolution of 1366 x 768 with exactly the same chassis as this one.
Had mine for 4 or 5 months now great machine & upgrading to windows 7 was so easy & like ms01ma says you can get extended warranty's quite cheap,I got a two year warranty & case + mouse for £32.

Hello All,

I too have this machine, and can also confirm 1024 x 768. But the screen is great, Windows 7 went on it soooo easily (you can download all the Windows 7 drivers for this machine from the Acer website) and it has one of the nicest keyboards I have ever used. Having Blu-Ray is incredible, it can play US ones (with the 'A' region coding) that my PS3 could not! It is also easy to upgrade the RAM to 4GB which Windows 7 can fully address. Only earlier this year I paid more for an 'out of box' model. So the price Play are selling them for is really good.

A word of warning: Play do an AcerAdvantage pack for about £37. I bought this, but it is for a Netbook and can NOT be used for this 6930G laptop; it plainly says 'Netbook' on the cover which is not at all apparent on the Play website ;-( . Fortunately ;-) , I recently bought an Acer Aspire One Netbook (which is also a great little machine btw) and I intend instead using it for that. I think the cheapest three year warranty for this laptop is at least £55 though, if anyone knows where it can be got cheaper that will be much appreciated.

Happy to answer any queries about this laptop and Windows 7 running on it.

[EDIT: The Blu-Ray I tried was NOT marked as Region 'A', as it had no region marked on it all and so appeared to be multi-region or region free. That was why I bought it in the US. But it failed to work in my PS3 at home in the UK which made me think it was region 'A', but as it worked in this laptop it made me think that the laptop is Blu-Ray multi-region. I am not sure if it is, but it did play the Blu-Ray bought in the US that my PS3 would not. The Blu-Ray in question is Will Smith's 'I am Legend'.]

Thanks.

Disappointing the graphic card scores lower benchmarks than the x1600 in my 3.5yr old laptop.
It wasn't exactly cutting edge even when I bought it.

How do you get the 2 year warranty (is it an option during checkout) ?

Sorry my mistake, concentrating too much on the 768 part! Thanks for the correction.

nope u need to buy it separately
#26
Can anyone tell me if it has the spring loaded clasp on the front of the case which you use to open the lid?
#27
Thanks, I just saw it on the Acer site.

So what does "carry in" warranty mean exactly?

5-Mar-2009 paul: Hi please can you clarify two things for me with regard to the warranty on your AS5735 laptops. 1. The 1 year warranty that comes as standard, how does this work? 2. The extended 1 year warranty - what does 'carry in' involve? tks Paul

SteveF: The first year is collect and return so they pick it up, fix it and then send it back without charge. a carry in warranty means you take it to an approved agent/shop to get it repaired.
#30
Thanks for the reply. My sons spring loaded clasp on his laptop broke off shortly after the warranty ran out.

I'm very intrigued by the biometric fingerprint recogniser. How does it work and what can you use it for? Gimmick?
#31
Aldi have one that looks better to me ?
#32
I need a new laptop, but all this stuff just baffles me. I'm not really interested in Blu-Ray, should that count this one out for me?

This one is the same price but has a larger screen and Windows 7 built in, surely it's a better option?

you can use it for logging in on the intial screen,pretty secure.
Also can be configured to be used instead of passwords


This is the warranty I selected when i bought my 8930g:

I'd rather have this one http://configure.euro.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?c=uk&cs=ukdhs1&l=en&oc=N0075002&dgc=AF&cid=5212&lid=122756 Not as large a hard drive or RAM but then it's 50 quid cheaper and much better built IMHO - has an LED screen and includes inbuilt 1.3Mp webcam too.

Compaq are one of those brands I would avoid like the plague!

Price has gone up to £469.

How good would this be connected to a large LCD via HDMI to watch movies ?

Also has a far slower processor, poorer graphics card and no blu ray either. Other than that, its identical.

its great hdmi out and will output 1080p just like having a blu ray player, just connect to tv via hdmi cable

Don't wish to be pedantic, but only the 64 bit version of Windows 7 will recognise 4GB RAM, the same as any other operating system. This laptop is fitted with a 64 bit processor, but, for the majority of tasks (word processing, web browsing, gaming etc.), you won't notice a speed increase using an x64 OS. The only real benefit is video encoding.

Nice spec machine by the way, heat added.

Can confirm this too - use as a blu-ray player sometimes in our house.

Viewing angles on the screen for this are very poor but not really that important on a laptop I suppose!
