GREAT Machine with good specs for the price.
Online prices are between £600 - £1100 depending on specs.
Had ACER for 4yrs last......worked fine with no complaints with experience of good customer service too!

CURRY's say although the website states REFURB models these are NOT Returns and are actually end of line stock gathering dust with availability of 42 in stock hence clearance on website only.

Have ordered mine so will be checking packing and machine carefully.

Older discontinued model. Main differences 3gb of ram, GPU is 256mb Nvidea 9300m not 512 mb 9600m, 1366x768 screen and dvd-rw and not blu-ray.

But saying that if it is new still a great price.:thumbsup:

I second that...I was getting concerned for a minute there, if it was 9300m I probably would've had to think about it, but I know that the 9600m is a solid midrange card.

Currys says it is a 9600


Yes it will be an error. So if you are going to buy it with the intention of taking it back grab a screen print now.:thumbsup:

But saying that if they are refurbs then it may be that it has a new mobo and was replaced with a v2 mobo (9600m) which would explain the old spec from the v1.

But my guess is its still a mistake on the site.

Anyone able to confirm or disprove?

When can we have a separate section for second-hand tat?

The amount of second hand gear is getting a bit silly on here now, and it takes longer and longer to scan through stuff, especially when not properly listed, like this one :-(
#14
According to these links i don't think it qualifies for win7 upgrade.

http://www.currys.co.uk/martprd/editorial/win7-hardware2

The only way of really knowing is by inputting the serial number on the order page when following the ACER links. Hope to let you know when i receive my machine later in the week.
#15
How can you be so sure it's not a refurb? Just because it doesnt say it is in the description isn't proof enough imo.
#16
Just called Curry's now and he said its most likely to be a DVD R/W not a Blu-Ray.

Also questioned him about the GPU and he said its a 256 MB 9600M. It doesn't look like they make the 256 MB for this laptop so its pot luck as to if its the 256 MB 9300M or the 9600M.

He did say though that if its advertising it as a 9600M and its not then you can take it back.

Just dont know if its worth the effort if its wrong.
#17
Plus 7 Working days for a full refund, so long as you're careful with it and don't switch it on or install anything etc.
#18
what is this second hand tat - anygood // or not warranty etc nihaj

Amazing price!!! it was around double when I looked at it one year ago or so... then I bought the bigger model :)
#21
It's gpu is a nvidia geforce 9600m gs, which is a lower clocked version of the gt. Still pretty good gpu at this price point.
#22
Can anyone say anything about the battery life? 2 Hours with Wifi Minimum, 3 Hours Max I'm guessing...

According to me:
The Acer has a better processor, more ram and a better dedicated graphic card. Plus the Acer looks a lot better and has hdmi port to connect to your plasma or lcd.

Yes but the Acer is refurbished and samsung is new but I would still go for the Acer without doubt based on the specification.

Best of luck.

Looks like a bargain if it isn't a refurb. Might be worth someone confirming it though as that is what it says..

Word of warning though Acer repairs are carried out by InfoTeam who have just proven to be a nightmare to deal with. Terrible communication, took over 3 times longer to have repaired than quoted and they tried to charge me.

My 5920G had to be repaired as the hinge was such a poor design and cracked, this one pictured looks like the newer sturdier design though :-)
#26
Just called and was told these ARE returns, hence they are not in the shops, but direct form warehouse.
#27
Does anyone know if this Acer lappy has Blutooth
#28
9600M graphics card?

Bargain.

The laptop should be able to run Crysis at a pretty high level. No mean feat.
#29
If anyone needs some information on how a 9600M GS handles games then you may want to look here.

I have a 6940G - bought from Dixons Refurbished about six months ago for £439.99.

This seems to be an almost identical machine, in terms of styling and most specifications. The main differences I would say are that the 6940G has a blu ray drive and a 512MB graphics card.

Just a few points:
The bad
- Laptop does have an HDMI out, although in my experience, this was not as high quality as an output on another machine I had. Practically, usage for this for watching blu ray movies on television is a bit of a faff, and I don't bother, given I have a PlayStation. - So the blu ray drive hasn't been any great use to me yet, maybe some day it will come into its own.
- This machine should run Crysis at a good rate, but in practice it runs it at a "just about acceptable" rate, ultimately I gave up on this as I couldn't quite get the right balance between good graphics and smooth gameplay. Still by far and away the best graphics I have seen on a laptop, if you put Crysis to high settings and just wander around not playing the game it is stunning. All other games are fast and good graphics. So it is a good gamers laptop.
- It is heavy.

The good
- Everything else really, the styling is nice, the touch controls and finger print scanner - whilst gimmicky - are great and I miss them when using other machines - using the fingerprint scanner for passwords is a revelation. Even the light up Acer log on the back is a nice touch.
- Even though machine was a refurb, condition was excellent, as new really, and you get a full years warranty, so all of those "second hand tat" comments are bogus. Mine has been solid as a rock, even given very high usage.
- The massive widescreen makes multitasking a breeze.

So - given that I feel the smaller graphics card and lack of blu ray don't really matter - I feel this is a great machine at this price, and capable of handling pretty much all tasks you can throw at it. It's a buy..
#31
Damn that's a fkin sweet price for the spec - Only wish I needed one.
#32
OOS now
#33
:( shame
#34
Good spec for price but no one has mentioned concerns about Acer reliability and backup. Apparently they don't score well in surveys (eg Which?).

My Netbook is Acer but when I was looking for a laptop for my daughter I invested a little more in a Toshiba.

I suspect this deal is great for 'expert' users but suggest the rest of us might be better looking elsewhere.

I would not touch an acer with a barge pole - not because of their brand but because of the muppets who carry out repairs.

i bought a laptop last year which had a lose power switch, over time it became loser and ended up sticking under the chasis of the case. It was only 4 months old at that point. I did an online return and received an email off acers repair team saying they would charge me £50 for looking at the laptop and depending on their opinion of the fault would then quote me a repair price or return the laptop back if i did not want to pay their charges (the £50 would be kept to cover their admin charges).

I told them that this was surely illegal but they basically said that the service they offer.

i promptly spoke to play .com and told them that the manufactures were demanding payment before carrying out a repair and play said send it to them and play gave me a full refund (according to play they had received a number of similar complaints ).

i will therefore never buy an acer product again and would warn anyone that if this does break down - good luck in getting it repaired
#36
Man I need one with blue ray hdmi 51mb gfx card and 4gb ram
#37
Only thing that would put me off is the battery life, or is 2 hours pretty normal?! Hope they come back into stock
#38
cracking price, that processor is pretty dam good for the price.

Shame... appears to be none left.
#39
I tried to cancel my order but delivery's scheduled for tomorrow, so there will at least be one left ; ) Give it a week.

Yes that does mirror the experience others have had, search Google for "Acer" + "InfoTeam" and it's the same story from others with InfoTeam demanding money for repairs of laptops under warranty.

Mine was under warranty and was spotless, I took great care of it and not once dropped it from any height. It developed a crack in the hinge only 8-9 months after I bought it. It was a clear design fault as the hinge was ALL plastic. If you look at the newer design that have a metal core.

However InfoTeam tried to say I had caused the damage and therefore it wouldn't be covered, even thought the first guy I spoke to said it was common amongst many laptops.

Because of my query on the bill they then wouldn't send it to me annd I had to contact them every 2 days to get an update on my repair and try and find someone to speak to about NOT paying the silly charge.

During the lengthy repair they closed the original call centre lines down which were, I am positive, located at the repair centre itself (I spoke to 3 members of staff who were all English)
Once that line closed I could only get through to an Indian Call Centre who were clueless and obviously had no direct link to the repair centre. Every time I called up I was told I would have to wait 48 hours for them to esculate it to the Repair Centre and refused to give me any direct contact details for the repair centre.

So do be very careful.. and not just of Acer. It might be worth finding out who carries out the repairs from other manufacturers as InfoTeam handle them for several companies.
