good price, for the spec, they had one similar to this on asda for £250 but that was months ago and expired. Also this does not have hdmi so becos of no hdmi erm lukewaerm. This maybe the cheapest blu ray laptop around unless anyone can find any cheaper that is in stock.

Please steer clear from ACER's
bought a 5920G in December last year....already visited for blu-ray not working and battery dying out problems.....now for the third time it puts the lights on even while shutdown and doing nothing.....with in 9 months 3 faults??errr...

the only mistake i made was that i did not read any reviews before buying them....the fact is that recently ACER products had been rubbish.....

battery dying out could be a number of reasons, eg. battery too hot, been in the mains far too long etc etc.
what do you mean by this "now for the third time it puts the lights on even while shutdown and doing nothing"

Checked the reviews on amazon for the 5920G - majority rate the laptop:?
If your having problems and the Acer can't fix - Return to shop you purchased from - it's still under warranty refuse further repair and ask for replacement under sale of goods act.

I have the Acer 5920G that was 'obsolete sold-off' as had an HD-DVD but was a bargain last summer with Intel Dual Core and larger hard-disk £430 with 8600M graphics and 'n' wireless. Very pleased with the quality of that.

I think I would double-check the battery life with AMD CPU and Blu-ray - I'm sure it won't be great, but hopefully satisfactory.

But it's an Acer so some posters will vote cold just for that reason. They've usually got a friend of a friend whose cousin once went out with someone whose uncle got told by some bloke in a pub that his son read on a forum that someone else knew someone who bought an Acer 10 years ago and it broke. :p

Acer's aren't as bad as they used to be. My girlfrinds hasn't had a problem in the 3 years she's had it. Besides, £450's about as good as you'll get for a BR lappy. Unless you spot a 6 month old HP DV5 on fleabay and snap it up for £290 :thumbsup:

I agree, it seems to be almost fashionable to vote Acers cold - rarely do cold voters back their decision up with any useful evidence. I've bought a laptop for my Mum (a lower spec of this pc) and a desktop for my lad in the past 18 months and had no problems at all. Also several colleagues have Acer laptops that have been completely trouble free.

This is a very well specified machine for the money and I would have no hesitation in buying it if I was in the market for one. Voted hot!!

i ve had some acer deals that have gone hot,i find that with acer unless the deal is like £100 or more cheaper, then it will go hot, if it is only like £20-£50 cheaper than the next similar laptop then it might not go hot.

I'm a software professional for more than 9 years and as part of my job must have used not less than 10 laptops and i can assure you that ACER are just crap when compread to dells or hps or sonys.
i know the battery life cycles history and i had used my previous sonys or hps with the same intensity but their battery never dried out this fast....im pretty sure my usage did not go beyond the allowed discharge/charge recycles.

the fault was apparently with the battery itself.

Well to be fair, Acer don't manufacturer the actual battery cells.

That's a bit of a sweeping statement - I don't recall Acer batteries making the national press lately for bursting in to flames!!!

Acer's are also a shed load cheaper than Dells, HPs and Sonys...
