'hd ready' screen resolution only + blu-ray...hmmm
#2
the screen is a funny res , although 16:9 it is slightly more than 720p and will scale it up i guess (ew).
also prone to cracking the screen , some design fault aparently.
still , it is a lot of laptop for the money , and i guess is hot as somtimes sells for more without the bluray on fleabay used.

Good spec...shame about the brand...

Good look with the hinges, would never buy acer ever again.

fairy low resolution, other than that looks good.

Hope you enjoy your few months use before the screen cracks...

Good price for the specification but it looks like there is a serious design flaw with this model so voted cold.

Anecdotal story #2: I've had a Timeline 3810 for a few months now. The build quality seems excellent - very sturdy.

Acer's stuff is good value for money, but (as with anything) you take a risk with low-end models.

The Timeline series are premium by Acer’s standards and not exactly budget priced like this deal. Good to see it’s managed to last 2 months though. ;-)

It was only £500 :)

But complaining about the quality of budget-end products? It's nothing like complaining to a Fiesta car salesman that it doesn't drive like a Ferrari, but I'll say it anyway.

Anecdotal story #3: A couple of mates bought the same budget-end Acer around the same time, and after 3 years the motherboard went on each. It's time to upgrade after 3 years anyway :)
#12
had an acer for 4 years, used daily, no problems so far. Ex machine.

I’ve used the 14” Timeline and liked it especially how quiet it was under full CPU load. I think they are over-priced though.

They are CULV machines - you pay a premium for them (regardless of make).... It's designed for long battery life, hence lower power = runs cooler, so it requires less to cool = quieter.

why so hot??????
No HD out, old school vista

have to say have a couple of laptops but im tempted by this only the posts about the hinges putting me off the post about the res was absurd! 1080p on a laptop ? will make no noticeable difference

Agree re the hinges - my daughter is on her second Acer laptop and this set of hinges has cracked as well - first one only lasted about 15 months!

£399 - Wow you could probably buy a bottom of the range WiFi only Apple iPad for the same amount of money (if you were mad!)

dare i ask why you bought the 2nd then if the first was bad?
#20
But surely this is old hat processing. The price is good for sure but it is not current spec and you are building in obsolescence with this purchase. If you don't need cutting edge, then you can get away with £300 or even less on occasion and if you want future proofing, you need the new i3i5i7 processors.

It sits uncomfortably in the middle IMHO.
#21
Hows this compare for the same price: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/186603 ?

Just wondering (And I hate Acers with a passion), no other reason for posting!

This.

Acer are a joke brand.
#23
It's not too bad but for the same price you can get a Dell 1564 - ok 15" not 16" and no Blu Ray but it does have the Core i3 chip / DDR3 memory - or even an i5 equipped 1564 for a few quid more in the Dell outlet. You could even go to £449 and get a Dell 1764 17" i3 laptop. I'm no Dell fanboy but with i3 laptops at these prices, they are making the C2Ds look expensive for the spec.

its OK but iCore and windows7 for me

Appreciate the comments, some just irrelevant but others enough to make me think twice, if only to point me in the direction of the cobra website (never been there, good deals). Not fussed about blu-ray but the screen cracking is a worry.

Struggling to find Dell i3 computers for around the same price so would appreciate a link.

I am looking for a £400 ish laptop at the moment also, and my choice so far is the toshiba L500 1XC from tesco direct for £424 (with the £5off voucher) + quidco cashback and 848 tesco clubcard points!)
it has only 2GB ram but would prob stick another 2GB in for about £40-45 sometime in the future
here are the specs
http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/product/Satellite-L500-1XC/1081193/toshibaShop/false/
it might not be what you are looking for but that is my favourite after a week of looking...
hope that helps

Neutral on the deal, but for those interested - don't forget quidco cashback!

I’m aware of all that but I still think they are over priced. I don’t think the Pentium Dual core SU4100 is an expensive CULV CPU and the low power nature means it’s easier and cheaper to cool this platform.
But kudos to Acer for actually designing a system that runs very quietly as they could have saved money and not done it properly.
CULV doesn’t have to be expensive as Dell make a 11.6” with dual-core, 2GB, 250GB, Bluetooth for £379, Inspiron 11z, and a 13.3”, 3GB, 320GB for £479, Inspiron 13z.
I think the Timelines are better designs but the pricing still seems too high.

this item does have hdmi output and when this first went on offer at £439 it qualified for a windows 7 upgrade disc, and it has its own graphics card capable of playing recent games:)

The 9300M GS is a very basic entry level GPU and not a gaming chip. It's better than Intel IGPs but that's about it really.

Crucial? That depends on the viewer, but 1080p on a screen this size is the same as 1080p on a screen that is 100". So it depends what what the viewer wants.

1080p is the same be it at 16" or 100", its viewing distance that matters and as this is a laptop, your viewing distance is vertially on top of the screen, so 1080p would be great on a screen this size.

The poster was referring to the need for 1080P just because it has a Blu-ray drive.
I sit close to a laptop when using it for most purposes but when watching films I tend to sit a lot further back which makes the lack of 1080P irrelevant in this context for this viewer.
Do people here tend to sit very close to a laptop when watching films at home?

Dell 1564 will match that for £50 less and look nicer to boot!

I'd prefer the Aspire 7530G.

If you don't want Bluray or the spec then there's not much point in buying either TBH. Shop around for much much newer machines.
