IMHO Packard Bell suck big time for quality. Buy a Dell instead and save yourself some grief.

Sorry to hijack your thread,but looking for advice :thumbsup:

Can anyone that knows anything about laptops,tell me if this is a good deal from Tesco.

Please bear in mind this is for a 11yr old for xmas,so they don't need anything too techy....

With my staff discount and cashback etc.. it works out at about £339.00 and 1200 club points.

Acer Aspire 7520 17" Gemstone Laptop

do not buy a laptop with a 17" screen if the 11 year old intends to use it as a portable. it would be just too big.

ok, and this is only my view, so spec seems good, but prob a bit too much for an 11year old, unless it’s used for gaming and other additional software - as it’s a dual core!! Plus its a 17" which is bigger, a 15.4" should suffice, I presume your paying extra for the bigger screen. Acer’s from what I know are ok, not the best but have good reliability.
I think you could find something better, I would keep lookin, Xmas is still a while yet! :thumbsup:

Thank you for your replies,yes i thought it would be better with the bigger screen :thinking:

Not for games or anything,mostly for going online......so smaller screen and less price.:thumbsup:

thanks again for the advice........will keep looking:santa:

Voted cold. You can buy a Dell Vostro with twice as much memory for the same price, and the advantage of Dell is that the support is much better. Major repairs will be done by collect & return, which'll take about 10 days in total, minor repairs (bits like new hard disks, new keyboards, and such) can be sent out to be fitted next-day. When problems arise with DSG systems, you'll usually be out of action for a month.

be aware that a 17' screen is very heavy... if a 11 year old will use it like a desktop then put it in a cupboard then it would probably be fine.. but it if is being carried to firends houses etc.. it would be too heavy..

Based on personal experience, I would have to disagree with that. My youngest daughter (who is a skinny thang) uses a Dell 9300 which has a 17" screen and has no problems with it at all. She carries it around the house or from house to car to house quite easily (are you really going to let a child walk far on their own with a laptop?!?!?).

One of the reasons for getting her a 9300 was the benefit of knowing she's not straining her eyes looking at a small screen.
