i was looking at this 2 secs ago was wondering maybe what people thought
Love Acer laptops. The design and everything, really good. I've only had mine 8-10 months, so can't really say how good they are in the long term, although i have had a battery problem which was sorted easily.

I have pretty much the same laptop, everything the same except the processor and ram, same screen which is fantastic, i watch alot of HD movies off of Justin.TV, really great quality.

If i didnt have the laptop i have now, i would go for it.
I bought a very similar model (i5 processor, only 4gb ram and 320gb HD, everything else the same) from Sainsuburys before Christmas for £229 and it is very good. Based on that, seems dear for an i3.

I was busy typing my deal while this one was posted. The same model laptop is on sale at Sainsburys (same i3 processor and 6 Gb RAM, but with a bigger 750 Gb HDD) for £369.99

Cannot use that as a comparison unfortunately, that was a clearance event on old model laptops. I got a Sony Vaio VPCEB4E1E With 4GB Ram, 320gb HDD and Intel Pentium P6200 processor for £249.00 in the clearance event at Sainsburys. They were blatantly making a loss on the laptops they were clearing out.

You weren't the guy in front of me who bought 2 off the Sony's (instead of 1 Sony and 1 Acer) and very kindly let me have the Acer for the daughters Christmas present were you!!!

Does appear to out do them a bit. Only advantage I can see on this one is the 12 month buy now pay later... other than that, the Sainsbury's one trumps this one.
I wished companies would give better info. Which i3 cpu is it? Probably old 1st gen. If so, bad deal.

Is the Intel Core i3-370M second gen? Found similar specs on Amazon, but couldn't find the exact model on Google

Nah, I only bought the 1 Sony and an Acer from another store.
A tenner cheaper and bigger hard drive from Sainsburys...and yes, it is a first generation CPU [in both cases] - not sandybridge.

Don't quote me, but I'm guessing this one has a standard GMA shared integrated, probably Intel 2500/3000 HD. Basically, movies, browsing, pictures... anything more than Unreal Tournament 2004 on the highest settings (a game more than 8 years old would you believe... still play it!) would be a strain.
so its not worth?which one is good now days?
