Windows 7 is no great advance on Vista in my opion. (not like big difference between XP and Vista)

Better with Vista at the moment anyway, no compatability issues to worry about.

There be a new version of Windows out soon no doubt LOL

There are more compatability issues with Vista than 7 from what I have been doing, and I work in Support

Vista is rubbish, if your not keen on the new windows then put xp on it

That's a lot of kit for the money.

how easy are these to upgrade? to say 4gb ram? :)

Not even Acer list the power supply, shame, because it might be able to support a half decent graphics card. It would have to be half height by the looks of it, but its no biggie these days. You can even get a low profile GTS250 but a 9600 would make it decent for games

How will they know if you keep the old memory and put it back in if you need to use the warranty?

The upgrade programs is over, so you are stuck with the supplied version of Vista.

Beaware of overheating issues with these slimline cases too (the OP photo is incorrect- its this one: ). Case is also flimsey and plasticy so wont withstand much abuse - I nearly bought this model myself before Xmas, but decided against it.

I bought one of these for £279, and I think the PSU is a 200 or 230W. I put a low profile 9500GT PCI-E in there even though the box on it says it needs a 400W minimum power supply. Anyway, I checked it works fine for 1080p video and Left 4 Dead 2, on a 1080p TV.
Note though that the PCI-E card slot is in a bad location - it can only fit a low profile and Single height/slot card! The slot puts the card right up against the side of the card and airflow is quite restricted. The side of the case gets quite warm where the card is, and the fan is on full constantly!

Also the CPU fan comes on and is quite loud too.

Despite all these misgivings, I'd say it's still excellent value for money, especially since I sold the monitor for £70 :)

Oh, the Quad core CPU scores 7.1 on the Windows 7 benchmark, whereas my Core2Duo E8400 on my main PC clocks 6.6, so I'm very impressed!!

I wouldn't say Vista is a plus, but it's not bad either.
The only ppl who complain about Vista are the ones who don't have a lot of RAM.

Over clock your E8400 to 4GHz - mine gets a 7.0 rating; pretty good for a C2D imo.

:?

What are you using? A early build version of the RC? You are entitled to your opion but in all honest you must be mad not to notice how much more stable, compatable, capable and intuative 7 is over Vista.

With this PC bear in mind this is the e version of the 9450 meaning it will not be anywhere near as quick as say the 9550 black.

Im afraid this is an ill informed comment, unless it is seriously legacy equiptment it will work with Windows 7, as mentioned earlier Vista had as many if not more compatability issues. Also within Windows 7 you can run Windows XP Mode to use anything that doesnt work.

Windows 7 runs much quicker than Vista and is alot less memory intensive, there are a number of small but very useful features that you notice when actually using Windows 7 that makes it alot more of an enjoyable user experience than Vista.

I will admit however i am running Windows 7 Ultimate so some of these extra bells and whistles maybe missing from lesser versions, however the OS is much more stable than Vista as i (touch wood) have not had one crash under Windows 7 in 3 months of use. :thumbsup:

Surely this comment is 100% designed to get an argument going?

If not, you simply know nothing about PCs and Operating systems.

You have no idea what you're talking about. Windows 7 is FAR more compatible and 'better' than VIsta and it's only been out a few months.

Acer will still let you upgrade for £12.50 to Windows 7 until next month. You have to tell porkies though about when you bought it. It works, I've done it twice in the last month. Just have your serial number ready.

I use two PCs with Vista HP and two with Win7 HP regularly, all machines have at least 3GB of RAM and TBH I don't notice much difference in usability. OK Win7 is a bit slicker, but not much. In terms of compatibility then this may or may not matter to an individual, depending on what, if any, legacy peripherals / apps. one wants to use. I'd rather try my luck with 32 bit Vista than 64bit Win7 ( which seems to be the standard install on just about all retail PCs) in terms of legacy stuff.

If I could upgrade to Win7 from Vista for a few quid I'd probably do it, but not if I had to fork out for a full-on retail version.
#26
lol fans of vista i didnt think id see it, sorry but been on W7 a while now and it zooms over the stability and response of vista, vista is and always will be the windows me which should have been bypassed, vista was so good they moved W7 in sharpish, i fix more problemed vista pc`s than xp or w7....

Even with all the RAM, it made a crappy OS run as it is supposed to. Vista is total crud, I am so glad I managed to eak out my XP usage and jump straight to Win7.


Over clock your E8400 to 4GHz - mine gets a 7.0 rating; pretty good for a C2D imo.


The Windows experience scores are useless, and should NEVER be used to gauge a system.

My E8500 @ stock got a 6.8, and at 4Ghz gets 7.1, but real benchmarks show much larger gains.

It also scores my 5850 worse than my 4870, which is laughable, given every game has seen massive improvements in frame rates.

As for the deal, it's alright I guess, but someone with some pc building knowledge could manage much better for the same price.
#28
Very good price for this, almost gone for it, just worried about the build quality reviews:?

AMD quad core processor can be had for £79, well its a newly released dual core model that can be unlocked into a full quad core... 3.2GHz x4

It seems the Vista v Windows 7 debate is even on the minds of celebs. Arnie Swarchenegger was recently asked if he had updated to Windows 7 but replied " I still love Vista baby". :oops:

This guy gets where i am coming from ? Yes if Windows 7 comes with your machine fine, but personally for the extra functionality over Vista i would not go out of my way to purchase it.

Maybe its just me but i am one of those who clinged onto XP Pro and was wary of Vista, having a dual boot set up for ages.

Its started a nice argument thread though.:p

The point remains those that really know have no problem with Vista, Window 7 was in answer to those that didn't want to change from XP. It's been a fantastic job by Microsoft to push out W7 which, when you look into the coding, is not as far removed from Vista as you might think.
I've dealt with some shocking 'advisors' selling W7 when they have Vista working perfectly well.
