Seems to compare well, slower cpu though, and that always affects the price.
Good find on both deals.

Less RAM and integrated graphics. Still not a bad price however...

They’re in fact identical.

They’re in fact identical.


If that is the case then I apologise, it is just according to simply acer 2.0 ghz clock speed and to Laptops Direct 2.13ghz....therefore one of them has a typo:whistling:

And in which case - another outstanding find, and I thought the OP was a good deal!!

Addendum: noted part numbers identical, in which case someone has indeed got their clock speed wrong:whistling:

Welcome nonothing

So what is the actual speed of the processor :?? i thought the 7300 was 2ghz and 7500 was 2.2ghz.

Also what is the graphics in this laptop, one moment it says Intel® GMA X3100 then in the next line it says ATI Mobility Radeon HD2400 VRAM 128 MB or does it include both :?

I wouldnt recommend this laptop to my worst enemy, i got one to replace an old dell a couple of months back and the dell is much better, so this acer is now sitting in a corner awaiting placement on ebay

It has really poor sound, and some buttons is really annoying places, when it is used as a "lap"top the wifi often gets switched off as the on off switch for the wifi is along the front edge of the pc. Down the left hand side, right on the edge are a row of buttons which are very difficult to avoid pressing when you pick it up, one of which locks the keyboard and is very annoying.

The laptop also takes an age to reboot and is much slower than my dell, some pieces of acer software are also difficult to remove without stopping other things working.

The curved keyboard wont be to a lot of peoples liking either.

So id recommend that anyone considering this deal nips round to their local tescos for a look before you order.

Just my opinion
