Yeah there is this fella down the pub who can get you anything you want for £50 - he does not do receipts and I am pretty sure he is not registered for VAT. Well he has no VAT Number on his yellow 3 wheeled Van. X)

Thanks heat...
Any suggestion on overall build quality? also warranty as HP comes with 2 year?
#14
Hmmm, I like the look of this for the price. Good deal. I wonder if we'll see a few good laptop deals over the next few weeks.
#15
heat added, :)
#16
Anybody know of a decent laptop with bluray?
#17
Same laptop at Currys, same price but with 320gb HDD so better value.

now showing as £400
#19
still £379

bought and on it now...
quiet... nice screen... downside keypad plastic/cheap however all in all good hot buy
#20
I saw a baffling amazon review claiming this laptop only has one internal speaker (apparently the second machine he recieved also had the same issue)... can anyone confirm?
#21
Looks a bargain, heat added, just saw the advert on tv, made me look here.
#22
Richdog

I think you may be right about the single speaker, I went to have a look at one today and there appeared to be just one speaker on the section above the keys/below the screen.

Is it just me or do Acer's cases seem a bit low quality..

Is the keyboard you use now broken?
#25
Is this not exactly the same?

http://www.dixons.co.uk/gbuk/acer-aspire-5742-core-i3-4gb-07706844-pdt.html?srcid=198

The only difference I can see is that the Dixons one has Intel® HD Graphics (allbeit probably not very good graphics), whereas the comet one has nothing (also the Dixons one is 99p more!)
#26
The keyboard is flimsy but it depends how u type and if ur heavy handed.... does the job, solid but cheap.... does the job so i cant complain....
speaker wise yeh has one speaker present,, but i have additional ones that i attach so not really fussed..

Cold..................no dedicated graphics card for gamers. I just got a HP with core i7, 1 GB dedicated Graphics, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB Hard drive, Lightscribe DVD/RW drive, media remote control, bluetooth - £479.99 delivered. Even added a Blu-ray drive to it coz I ain't worried about Lightscribe. Beat that.

it's a good deal, but Acer are poooorrr quality... I'd rather pay the extra and get this one http://www.electrical123.com/products/ProductDetail.asp?ProductCode=SAM-COM-R540_JA04UK-BK - seems ok for £436 + 2% quidco...?oO

Having looked around at a lot of deals, for the processor and spec this seems like a great deal.

Can anyone out there with more know how than me comment on Intel 128MB graphics? 128MB seems quite low and I would like to watch/stream video online - will this effect watching films, etc?
#31
