Isn't 2GB of Ram low?

This Amazon one looks better, 3GB Ram and the i3-370M processor

Nothing wrong with acer...i've had desktop pc's and laptops by acer and they've been brilliant.
#13
some Acer models are well built, others are total crap. My laptop (Acer Aspire 3810tzg) been replaced twice in two months. First time fan stopped working, second was dark areas on the screen (LED backlight broken). Saveonlaptops were great the first time, and totally useless the second - telling me to phone their tech support number, which was actually Acer's tech support number. After 28 days, they have no interest in dealing with you directly, just palming you off on the manufacturer.
#14
Site is legit, used them many times before without issue - any company you'll hear good and bad stories about customer service, this is no different.

As others have said, 2GB RAM is a bit low but for £20 you could pick up another 2GB stick.

With regards to the webcam being 0.3mpix, who really cares? It's a webcam...

The Acer hardware is definitely better but Samsung is a more 'premium' brand and they just do command a higher price, in the same way Sony do.
#15
Amazing price for a very good quality laptop, way better than other brands
#16
I'm finding the spec ok for what I want apart from one thing - battery life. 2-3 Hours is not much and I need 4-5 hours, any ideas if such batteries are available for such machines?

What do you think is better on the link you provided vs this deal (and worse)?

In black and white, the Acer is the better deal in pure performance and hardware terms, the Samsung is simply an alternative because some people don't like Acer and are brand-sensitive due to past experiences.

Samsung have a perceived better quality than Acer, whether in reality that's true I can't say.

But going back to the hardware, in essence the 133Mhz clockspeed difference (350M vs. 370M) will be imperceivable but the extra 1GB of RAM in the Acer may make a lot more difference.

Thanks. I'm currently using an Acer TravelMate 5720 with Vista Home Premium installed (bought from Misco ~ 11/08 for £320.86) and 4GB RAM.

I've had no issues with the machine really (have an issue with Vista when it tries to update a certain Daylight setting update, but easy workaround now found), granted, some of the small screws underneath have fallen out, and it can get a bit hot when it's on ones lap, but apart from that, it's been fine.

I'm thinking of giving this laptop away to family for business and getting a new one for myself.

Compared to my current laptop, will I notice much difference?

The only issue I have with this deal is the battery life (the Acer as well I suppose). The issue with the Acer is the speaker (seems there is only one speaker on the Acer whereas this Samsung has stereo speakers)

Core i-series (even the i3) is a good deal faster than Core 2 clock-for-clock, probably around 10-20%. With the Samsung you could really do with more RAM (it's cheap anyway) but speed-wise if not disk-swapping and using virtual RAM you should be fine. Windows 7 is a big plus though and much more streamlined than Vista ever was.

The Acer should have stereo speakers but from what you say they're clearly not a lot of bottle. The Samsung isn't necessarily better, without hearing it, it would be hard to say.

Depends what you look for in a PC really, the Samsung will definitely be faster but it depends what you do with it. For example, I play games on mine so I put more emphasis on a graphics card (nVidia or AMD) than a fast CPU which is the right choice - the Samsung and Acer both have average on-board graphics.

Spending £400-500 would get you something substantially faster, maybe a Core i5 with basic dedicated graphics, so that might be the wiser choice.

Thanks plewis.

The dreaded, "ooh, what about this one" voices have started in my head (as they do when I'm about to order a machine).

As well as that Acer we mentioned, there's this Acer which has a slightly different spec (I've marked the differences in bold) but for the same price:
Acer Aspire 5742Z 15.6 inch Notebook ( Intel Pentium P6100, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, DVD, Webcam, Wireless, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) - Black

Decisions decisions (with the board's input first of course :D )

The Pentium P6100 is a slightly slower 'Core i' derivative (same silicon and architecture, just running a bit slower), plenty fast enough for general purpose use and unless you have a Core i3 to compare it to side-by-side, you won't notice the difference.

In fact, the 4GB RAM and larger hard disk will possibly be of more actual benefit to you in the long-run. The 5742Z is a nice-looking machine too.

Watch out for P6100 as it's a Celeron CPU. Performance vise there is not much difference to regular i3, but battery life will suffer. Celeron do not have any P-states and do not change clock speed when not in use. I would stay away from them if battery is important to you.

No, the P6100 is a Pentium which is why it's known as the 'Pentium P6100'. The battery life difference will be minimal and it does support 'Idle States' which is what I presume you meant.

Even so, people need to understand that just because someone can produce arbitrary benchmarks showing a Celeron as slower than Pentiums and Cores doesn't mean the Celerons are a complete write-off. They have their place and the dual-core variants are actually pretty competitive and good value.

Definitely a good price but not available online so that will make it hard to access for a number of people. If everyone goes out looking there's no guarantee they can get it and most people won't bother travelling more than about 10 miles on a whim if they can't be sure they can get it.

They could always call first?
