I know what generally makes a good laptop but not as technically minded as some of you lot out there so suggestions would be muchly appreciated. Need it to run Photoshop and various other design programs without it causing any problems. cheers

No USB 3.0 and no dedicated graphics. Cold imo

i was looking for high ram, and a good processor which i think this ticks the boxes, would you have any suggestions for a better laptop? also what does USB 3.0 do?

thanks

if you want to run design programs then you need a dedicated grapichs card, this laptop has a shared graphics card 'Graphics Type Shared'.

This is a far better laptop for £534.65 (or £499 after Quidco)

yes it does as I have one...

btw, you can grab this for £399 from currys/pcworld ebay store if you're quick (6gb ram though) (Item no: 130625502727)

i5 Processor, recently released, good mark on cpu benchmark. 8GB of RAM is slight overkill and you won't really see it being put to full use but then again having more ram is never really a bad thing. USB 3.0 is the same as your current USB ports but it offers much higher transfer rates. The average user doesn't require USB 3.0.

For the price it's ok.

Fool.

Got a refurbished one of these for £276 for my mother in law delivered from the Currys/PC World Ebay store so cold I'm afraid. It was refurbished with only 3 months warranty and 4Gb of RAM and possibly a slower i5 but it was like new.

I'd expect either a better make, dedicated graphics and blu ray for this price. Sorry.
Keep checking other posts on here

Blu Ray?, better make? and dedicated graphics for this price?
On what planet? and what is wrong with Acer?
Why this obsession for dedicated graphics, the majority of buyers for laptops are not professional gamers and this would be more than good enough for most.
I have seen the Blu Ray version of this in Comet today for £649, been looking for a BD laptop for ages.
Then walked down to PC World and got replacement internal drive for my Acer for £89 sorted.

It looks a good deal 2nd generation sandybridge chip and good spec, buy it gman i have seen it for lots more in Currys and Comet today.

Try HD playback on the integrated graphics then compare it to a dedicated graphics card. Acer have the highest failure rates, and the last person I knew who bought a Acer suffered from a problem within 3 weeks, then when returned from repair from Acer constantly got BSODs.

This is over £100 cheaper hotukdeals.com/dea…837 and add 4GB of ram yourself for 10-15 quid if you need 8GB of ram...
You don't need to be a professional gamer to own a decent graphics card, try playing simple games on the integrated graphics of your machine and watch it run at 5-10 FPS...

Do you have a link that shows Acer have the highest failure rates?
I've got an old Acer travelmate that has outlasted two Dells and a Toshiba.

If you google it yourself theirs loads of links, most having Acer in the top 3 companies for failure rates.

The dell is a better offer, but i play limbo (simple game) and get 60fps easy on an intel 3000 HD gfx

would battlefield 3 run on shared graphics?

Hi gmanuk, I would save £100 and go for the ASUS-X53E-SX947V. Same CPU, less memory but memory is very cheap at the moment if you need it, smaller hard drive. Comet do the same model with a 750GB hard drive and more memory for £450 but out of stock today. Here is the former model:-

comet.co.uk/p/L…019

As to the Acer model, hard Drive slow spin speed of 5400rpm compared to a 7200rpm (though I imagine the ASUS has the same bottleneck). No USB 3.0, or none mentioned in the spec sheet. If you want to fit a USB 3.0 video capture card with a time base corrector or fast USB 3.0 hard drive for transferring large Photoshop files quickly, you can't; I appreciate that won't matter to some but important to others. I have given heat to Acer over other models before because of things like better spec webcam and USB 3.0, so possibly it's a printing error and this model does have USB 3.0? Around the £500+ mark people start asking where's the dedicated graphics card, though realistically to get a dedicated graphics card that is vastly better, you want to spend a little more. I'm not anti Acer, though. All companies make good and bad laptops, ACER just sell more than most under the value brand. Their Extensa business models, I'm typing this on one, are very robust. The 5750 has in the past reviewed less well for build quality and keyboard, so I would go for the ASUS, personally, if you're taking to and from university or work.

In fairness, to answer your question, though, one program that does greatly benefit in benchmark from having more memory is Photoshop, the more you can get in there the better.
