the screen resolution lets this down otherwise its good

Not too bad but I'd only consider if it had 1TB hdd

Okay deal, lukewarm added.

Seems really well spec'd. You don't get much more than a 256Gb SDD at mid level. Was looking for similar months earlier and couldn't find anything under £600. The only thing that lets this one down is the screen display. I would want full HD.

Crap screen. There are better offers at PC World for this price.

As is too often the case, the Argos description and specs don't match up, the description states full HD but the specs say 1366 x 768. If you look at the questions and answers, 3 people have asked about it and 2 replied from Argos say 1366 x 768 and 1 says full HD. I have a feeling that it may actually be fhd, in which case it looks like a decent price to me.

I don’t understand how this has been voted cold.
Tesco has this selling for £549 and on there it states full HD screen and on the questions and answers on the Argos page it states the description is incorrect and has a full HD screen.

1 TB SSD is £200-£300 on it’s own

I’m struggling to see the difference. Same processor same ram same screen, pretty much identical apart from I prefer Acer due to the fact that the hard drive and graphics card are easily accessible. Thank

Hi Hjbevan - have you managed to confirm the screen resolution?

There's 2 staff answers in the Q&A, one says Full HD 1920x1080, the other just says HD – 1366x768. As you say Tesco selling as full HD, but AO.com also selling as standard HD. If it turns out to be the full HD screen, then it looks good. But the lower resolution is a deal breaker for most people at this price point.

Hi, I did some research. This is not the Full HD version unfortunately - From Acer website FHD part number is NX.GS1EK.003, EAN 4713883516228
This one is NX.GP4EK.013, EAN 4713883298490, which is the same model on AO.com.
Both are IPS still good quality display, depends if you need the higher res.

Thanks for this. I just confirmed this at Argos store. I just ordered the Asus gaming one that come up on ao.com.

Good spec for price, should be pretty nifty.

Yes £136 more for a slightly higher screen res. Makes this a good deal imo.
