Give the guy some slack, it is a basic laptop for a basic price. Are there better deals about? Yes... Is it still decent value for money for those that don't know where to shop around? Yes... Decent value for me, heat added.

You are a complete idiot, sorry to be so rude but yea.

The base idea of this website (other than to make money from referals) is to SHOW people the good deals of shopping around. Not to vote hot 'average' products that are not the best value for money.

The idea is to get the best price for that product currently available. And this falls far short.

Find me this laptop or similar for £209 then. With around 6-7 hour battery life

Strange, this appears to be the best price for this product. It might be price matched by other companies but no one else has submitted. The original comment could have been a lot more diplomatic, but no the computer commandos just attack....

I've not checked, I agree product brand matters. While a similar laptop is nearly always available at this price this might be the cheapest currently. Just that guys comment irked me, that people should just 'live' with 'ok' deals and vote them hot for the sake of it.

That guy was essentially saying "Yea, you can get a better deal - but I aint going to show you where, so I'll vote hot and you can buy this one!".

Personally I am the least technical person out there and I struggle with all the laptop deals on here! What to look for? What not to have? What's essential?

As a sole trader I just want something that is reliable and fast operating!

"Great for students"

I'm a student of spacecadettery. Will this laptop "fly me to the moon"?
#11
I owned this model- no chance on Earth the battery lasts that long. More like 3 if you're lucky. Of course if you didn't use it...

Which is like saying you want something with screen you can see and a keyboard that can be used for writing stuff.

Every laptop is designed to meet those criteria for somebody. Which models will for you depends on your usage conditions and what you consider an acceptable lifetime and a fast operation. A laptop that gets carried around in a bag all day, dumped on the floor, banged into stuff, leant against and similar will need better build quality than one that spends it's life alternating between desk and shelf.

As you can tell from the price, this is an entry level laptop. The build quality will be low and the processor anaemic. It won't be reliable or fast by the standards of more expensive laptops but it may be reliable enough and fast enough.

No it isn't actually.

As I have explained I am not a techy type of guy and don't understand the differences in processors etc. I just want a laptop that will sit on an office desk and not move that is very reliable and fast! Is that so hard to understand?

You should look into a laptop with at least a core i5 or i7 (even better) processor, 4GB ram minimum and I would HIGHLY recommend a full HD screen (1920x1080) as you mentioned it will be a workstation laptop.

Another thing if you have the money to spend would be to make sure that it has an SSD as this will greatly speed up your laptop from boot times to opening everyday tasks.

Samsung is my preferred brand although Asus and HP are reputable in their own right.

YOUR A IT TECHNICIAN....... NO wonder why IT is a complete overspending mess!!!!


i7 or i5 processor? For a Sole Trader? Who just uses Spreadsheets and Basic Word/ Email?


1080P???? Blimely.... 1376 v 744 15inch is perfect and ideal...

4gb RAM is the only think your right about.

Yes I would definitely recommend 1080p after having experienced both in a working environment and finding that it greatly improves multitasking when you have more than one window opened to work with.

I would assume you would want the laptop you buy to be future proof as well? In which case I stand by my choices as a budget Celeron processor for example wouldn't offer anywhere near the performance (which Jezza mentioned that he would like to have) or longevity.

In the end however it all depends on both your budget and preferences which I would normally discuss in detail with my customers before giving detailed advise..

I use excel spreadsheet and word but that's about it.

Email of course...

I don't save masses of documents, although I do get quite a few high res PdF's which I need to save somewhere!

There seem to be conflicting claims about the battery life. Amazon, for example, only say 'up to 5 hours':

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00OA4YJZO?tag=price0011_uk-21&m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE#productDetails

While Acer themselves make no claims:

http://www.acer.co.uk/ac/en/GB/content/model/NX.MRWEK.002

In terms of its battery size, 32 watt hours is standard for these kinds of laptops, and so is the rest of the hardware. The Lenovo B50-30, for example, is identical in spec, and can be had for £199:

It's fine, but it's a standard laptop at a standard price. If your heart's set on this model it's the best price though.

Personally, if my budget were a couple of hundred, I'd consider this, which has a CPU almost twice as fast:
