    Good price for the spec.

    Don't know how good eMachines are though but nevertheless hot!

    screen isn't "full HD" - it's only 720p ready (1366x768), you don't get full HD screens on 15.6" laptops. Otherwise good spec for the price.

    £329.99
    - £6.58 worth of Nectar points.
    - £6.59 TCB/Quidco cashback.

    ~£317 for an i3 is damn cheap (and at a fairly high clock too!).
    At that price i'd be willing to accept a slightly inferior build quality; and you've got an easy returns/repairs avenue through your local Sainsbury's store.

    Any Sainsbury's discount codes active atm?

    Agreed, I've had experience of three different e-machines PC's (one desktop two laptop) and all have had significant problems that I wouldn't expected normally.

    Acer may own them now, but I'd want to be sure that this particular model was definitely a rebadged Acer to go anywhere near it.

    Actually you can but you're right, this is only 'HD ready'.

    A good price I would say, and to the Acer (from Amazon) mentioned here which I bought very recently (£379.99): http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/acer-aspire-5742-15-6-inch-notebook-intel-core-i3-370m-processor-2-4ghz-3gb-ram/854925/#post10411760

    Processor wise:

    Acer Aspire 5742: Intel Core i3 370M @ 2.40GHz Passmark is 2218,
    http://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html

    Snappy :-)

    Not sure whether it has 32bit or 64bit Windows though (just says "GENUINE WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMUIM").

    I'm trying to decide if I'm miffed with buying mine a week or so ago, but on the whole I think I'm ok - each has their plus's.

    My machine has 3Gb RAM (which I may take out and replace with 8Gb for ~£80), 64-bit Windows, 320Gb HDD, and from Amazon.

    This has 2Gb RAM and perhaps only 32bit Windows (so max 4Gb RAM can be used even though you could put 8Gb into it), is £60 cheaper, 250Gb HDD, and you can take it back to a local store if it cocks-up.

    If money is very tight, this would be the better deal I think.

    Well up in the unreliability stakes though, nearly as bad as HP (spit)

    Actually to be really picky "HD ready" relates to the LCD native resolution (minimum 720 horizontal lines) and having HD inputs that support copy protection. I don't know of any laptops that could be certified as HD Ready. "Full HD" isn't an agreed standard but generally means the screen has at least 1080 horizontal lines native resolution and "HD" will have at least 720 horizontal lines...

    You're right that there are 15.6" laptops with 'Full HD' screens - I'm using one...

    Regarding the deal I'd also avoid e-machines - they may be set to become the Skoda of the computing world but I haven't seen evidence of that and if I did buy one would make sure it had a heated rear-windscreen ;)

    The only things i'd draw from that article is that:

    a) Most people don't take proper care of their laptops.
    b) The statistics they quote are so wildly inaccurate as to be useless.

    Keeping a laptop (regardless of brand!) in good working order for years is easy:

    - DON'T bash the power connector while it is plugged into your laptop, and you won't have charger problems.
    - DON'T leave the battery in a discharged state for long periods, and you won't cause damage to the battery.
    - DON'T step on/punch/stab the screen and it won't break.
    - DON'T drop (or suddenly accelerate) your laptop while it's on (or preferably never!), and the harddrive is much less likely to fail.
    - DON'T install piles of crapware and virus ridden garbage, and your OS will remain stable for years.
    - DO Regularly clean the fans, heatsinks & ducts, and your laptop won't overheat.

    I swear most laptop faults/failures are ultimately caused by customer misuse/ignorance.

    About 5 seconds I posted that I realised I knew what cable I needed. For some reason my brain was thinking I needed an optical cable - brain fart time ;-)
