I do hope you were joking about that!!!! Thats all your RAM gone before Vista even gets a chunk! May need to be upgraded if you want to run Vista on this.
I run Vista with 1GB of RAM and it is a bit of a dog!!

Not a bad deal though if you ditch Vista and the AV software and go back to XP.

Remember if you are upgrading the RAM then this laptop only has Windows Vista Basic which only allows up to 1Gb of RAM to be recognised and only 3 applications running at a time. You will need to upgrade to a better version of Windows like XP or Vista Home Premium in order to upgrade memory to 2Gb.

I recently bought a refurb like this from Currys and it came with Home Premium and 1Gb RAM (same processor and the rest except it had 13.3" screen) and that cost £209 inc vat. So maybe hang on for something like that to appear - at the time they were selling the 15" version of mine for £234 so maybe hanging on a bit will see a slightly better specification come available as a refurb.

Hi Avsie,

I think you maybe a little mixed up. The version you are discussing is Windows Vista Starter, an operating system primarily focused on emerging, third world and developing counties. Indeed it does have these limitations, however it is not officially available here and is not part of the package above.

Windows Vista Home Basic does not have a 1gb ceiling (its 32 bit therefore can address 4gb of memory if the hardware supports it). There is no 'imposed' limit on the amount of applications (avoiding a very technical discussion here) so it will act much like any other OS.

to be honest i bought one of these brand new from pc world and had nothing but trouble with it and pc worlds tech guys were not much help and said they always have problems with these

I bought a laptop of a similar spec to this from Amazon in the early Vista days. I promise you this will be a steaming pile. I was about to throw mine through the window when the missus walked in and stopped me. It would need another 512 Ram (and even then it would be rubbish) and take off Norton and go with AVG Free.

I would just spend a bit more and get a decent laptop me self!

totally agree with you,maybe alright for a child for homework but that about it i'm afraid

512K actually works ok with Vista Basic.

You can get another GB for £11 so that makes it £230 for an ok 1.5GB laptop.

Great student buy.

1. Half of the hard drive will be taken up by Vista and associated software.
2. 512MB will be too slow when processor and graphics are factored in.
3. 1.5 hours battery life is rubbish.
4. It's refurbished, not new.
5. You can get this: http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/152146/acer-extensa-5220-cel-m-540-512mb-8/ for £10 more. Not refurbed, 80gig HD, card reader. I don't think that one's hot, but it makes this look freezing.

why compare it to an expired £286 laptop?


A 512MB upgrade can be had for £5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Laptops at this privce are as rare as the EEE PC.
