Processor - good
Hard drive - ok
Operating System - bad

IF you werent to bothered about the 17 inch screen theres a dell for £399 in pcworld as well which has slightly less memory but its enough, larger hard drive and better OS. same processor

or there is this Toshiba @ staples which has a 15.4" screen but a bigger HD @ 250gb, i bought this for my OH and it is a cracking piece of eq both spec wise and looks wise.

Thanks for your replies, i will sort some rep out as soon as i can.
The answers to the above is that when i went to look at laptops yesterday i liked the look of the acer and i really wanted a 17" screen. I am not too keen on dell laptops although i know you can get more for the money but as i am really struggling to get anything knocked off the laptops i wanted to know if it was an ok laptop and price. My buying techniques must be really bad cos no-one is budging on offers at all they laugh at me.
I thought they were needing to sell stuff an yet why cant i get a bargain??????

Me in the same pickle as well.

The only real holdback for me is the percieved make of "Acer"

I had a quick look in PCWorld and it aint too bad looking, and it feels sturdy. I had a look at the toshibas, and I was not impressed by how flimsy the plastic and the keyboards were. Not sure if I tested the the above staples model or not, hence my reservation to just buy that one. I am just not a Dell person either for some reason.

I am also slightly biased by the HDMI with HDCP port. It also has another Acer EasyPort IV connector, what is that exactly?

Good posts on here, will update if I take the plunge:thumbsup:

Just wanted to add, new model very recently introduced, why price drop? maybe just nothing

yh, some good replies;
nowadays for 400 you should get at least:

-windows vista home premium or ultimate
-intel core 2 duo - 2gb or more ram
-15 inch screen bigger
-dvd drive, maybe even blu-ray
-should be 2.0ghz or faster
-hdd 100gb +

hope that helps
