example £43.97 3 years warranty from date of purchase http://www.acerdirect.co.uk/Acer_Warranty_Service_Agreement_-_3_years_-_carry-in_SV.WPCAF.A03/version.asp?PID=131


As far as I'm aware, the warranty pack you refer to in your link covers Aspire desktops and Aspire Easystore products only.

A quick look on the official Acer store and I found this warranty pack which covers notebooks for 3 years (2 extra years on top of 1 year manufacturers warranty):

I'm not sure where you get that from - if you look at the top of the page the warranty is included in a sub-section called "laptop warranty packs".

Anyway, to my point: I bought an Acer laptop from Acerdirect (also known as laptopsdirect) and purchased one of their warranty & accidental damage packs. This was nearly 3 years ago, so we are coming to the end of the agreement. The laptop was for my son who has Tourette's Syndrome and tends to give things a hard life what with the tics & other symptoms. The insurance has been excellent, with 5 accidental damage repairs and one new hard disk (probably also physical damage). Acer have never grumbled, simply issuing a returns authority and sending a courier to collect the laptop. It's usually returned within a week.

I'm usually pretty sceptical of extended warranty insurance policies but this one has been very good value and a decent service.

I think mine is a better deal; same price (well, £20 less if you count quidco), slightly worse cpu, but much better graphics card.

I noticed in the description for the warranty pack on acerdirect.co.uk that it said "Compatible with Acer Aspire Desktops". Also putting the product code SV.WPCAF.A03 into Google brings up a lot of results which seem to indicate it covers desktops and Easystore devices only. I may be wrong but personally I wouldn't take the chance.

Alternatively, if you want an Acer this laptop ( Acer 5739G-654G32MN, T6500, GeForce GT 130M).

£20(+£10 p&p) more, marginally slower cpu, significantly better gpu.
#12
Always used Acer, never any probs and when i do have faults Acer usually fix and return within a week, 2 weeks max!
#13
Just had my second Acer die on me in as many weeks (laptop and now a net-top, the R3610). Never again, waste of money, time and patience.

People who are interested in this deal should look at this page on Acer's website:

http://customercare.acer-euro.com/customercare/AcerUpdate.aspx?CID=GB&LID=ENG&IType=JV50

It describes how Acer has identified a potential issue with certain units, relating to the power adapter overheating due to incorrect BIOS firmware being installed. It applies to units manufactured between April 09 and June 09 and you can check if your system is affected by entering your serial number or SNID. They say the fix is to install an updated version of the BIOS.

Just thought I'd give people a heads up.

Good heads-up, rep added.

Still reckon sirhobo's find is better value; same spec graphics, marginally slower CPU, 1GB less RAM, but £80 cheaper:

With so many different warranty packs on the acer site, which one is actually for laptops and best value ?

I picked this up from Comet a couple of weeks ago (having finally lost patience with my netbook), and I have to say I'm very happy with it.

Nice and quick, Windows 7 Home 64bit, 3 hour battery, nice looking, good solid build quality.

Been playing a few games - Spore, Dragon Age*, World of Warcraft, Civ 4, Bioshock*, Gears of War*, Mass Effect*, Age of Empires 3 - all play very happily and smoothly at native resolution (those with asterix's needed detail turned down a bit - but by no means all the way) - it just can't really cope with anti-aliasing (which is not really a problem on a small screen).

My only criticisms would be that the lid is super-prone to smudges (the lid is a very very deep blue - not easy to see in photos), and that I'm not convinced the touchpad is all that great.

So for the price, I'd consider this to be a "desktop replacement" machine - I genuinely would.

Out of interest, are you able to try a more demanding game such as GTAIV, Crysis, Company of Heroes, or Borderlands?

I'll see if I can try company of heroes tonight - don't have the others though.

That'd be great; I find CoH to be very scalable in it's hardware demands.
With the right settings it'll run great with modest hardware, but if you crank up the detail to max in a big battle, and bring the camera down so you can see the horizon, it's quite capable of choking my desktop Q6600 + 8800 GTX SLI !
Though tbh I don't think it's very well optimised for SLI.
