I had this bought as a birthday present in October. By December I had the screen crack on me (common fault with these as I found on Google!)
Acer won't repair, Staples won't replace, and I don't have the technical ability to replace a screen on laptops.

It has 1gb ram, a 160gb hard drive. Has a Windows XP Home sp3 installation and COA.
Comes completely boxed with all accessories.
It is the inside screen which is cracked (if that makes any sense), not the outside bit of it.

Has Atom Z520 processor. Specs asy it has Bluetooth too, but had not had it long enough to try this out!

Also has 0.3mp webcam built in

cheapest screen I've found is item number 130341515427 on Ebay

Mine is the 751 model with the 11.6 inch screen not the 8.9 inch original one.

Mine is also in black

Would say no to that. This is a spanked fix for anyone who can do these, I would do it myself but wouldn't risk it as I never have before

Screens aren't cheap, also the most important part is the processor and you didn't tell us what it has.

I agree. 11/12" netbooks are mainly more expensive than the 9" because of the extra screen size. no screen knocks most of the WANT out of this and it's extra price too. if it had HDMI i would have offered quite a bit less than £150 to use as a nettop for my niece since you can get a revo for £140
#14
I'll up my offer to £75 and im fully aware of the screen prices!! lol

I have just missed a working 751 on eBay for £182 delivered hence the offer

To be fair I'm selling this as a repair because it is so new and the screen is the only problem.

Your offer is still miles away from what I'd accept :thumbsup:

also, Ebay comparisons are not allowed :) Even if it were, comparing like for like would be fair :)

cheapest screen I've found is item number 130341515427 - £20 cheaper than what you had found previously.
If I could fix it myself, at that price I would, but it is just too big a job for me and I don't want to ruin a perfectly good 4/5 month old netbook on a whim

Same spec (although different colour) is £199.99 on Play, brand new with warranty http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/10333700/Acer-Aspire-One-751-Intel-Atom-Z520-1-22GHz-1GB-160GB-3-Cell-Battery-Pack-11-6-Windows-XP-Home-Netbook-White/Product.html?&_$ja=tsid:11518|cc:|prd:10333700|cat:Computers Given a screen is £70 and yours has no warranty whats your best price?

Thats a good price for the screen, but need to remember possible import duties when it hits the UK so not really a good comparison :thumbsup:

Can't get the black one at that price - even the other colours are £20 more

Mine does have warranty - I have the receipt for it so it will have the balance of the warranty for the rest of the components.

As for price, I have stated my desired price, but if you wish to make an offer then I turned down flat an offer of £75, so any offer would have to be in excess of that :thumbsup:

I just point out things, and as it had been mention about screens on Ebay (and it not directly being a comparison to the item I'm selling) then it doesn't hurt to mention it :thumbsup:

Once you change your own screen it will void the warranty also........only if they spot it thou! and only if it needs to go back for some reason ;-)
#25
If its under warranty you can get it repaired? and if you cant then why would anyone else be able to get it repaired Acer are nice but modification anything other then RAM upgrade voids warranty....

So you not shifting from £150? If so I think Play with a genuine warranty would be my option....

Are you blind? Are you interested? If so, please make an offer. If not, then please don't post :thumbsup:

Also Acer stated that the screen isn't covered under the warranty when I contacted them - nothing sinister about it. I haven't suggested that anyone would get the screen repaired under warranty - please read through the thread to see what I have already stated :thumbsup:

Not rude, but direct and to the point.
FYI, it has been back to the store. It has been independently tested under SoG, and they sided with the retailer/Acer. I would rather keep it as it is my only laptop, but after arguing until I'm red in the face, I cannot argue with them any more as they won't listen.
A screen doesn't crack from sitting on the table, but this did, and I have found others that it happened to.

You still didn't read the bit about the offer having to be over £75 - thats the big clue that I will shift from £150 :whistling:
#29
bump 2 - will chance my arm on Ebay in the next day or so
#30
bump 3 - will pull and advertise this elsewhere by the end of the day

Any offers before it goes elsewhere?

This gets pulled at 19.30 tonight
