I brought this laptop a few weeks back when it was £100 more. It was a good deal then, its a cracker now! Im a computer science student, do a lot of graphics modelling, gaming, multitasking with various different operating systems and this thing has taken everything ive thrown at it.

Its got the works, card readers, slot loading dual layer dvd writer, built in bluetooth, built in 1.3MP webcam with face recognition to be used with avatars.

Vista capable and upgrade is available through acer.

Yep it's a good spec for the price and competes with this one

Good - however it seens nuts that in such a high spec machine they dont include basics like firewire and a decent bettery - 2 hours?

Acer Battery Life Is Poor

Acer Battery Life Is Poor



I've noticed that as well, as my Dell laptop has the same battery but lasts at least 3-5 times longer than my gf's Acer laptop.

Yes but besides the ram this one has a dedicated graphics card and a 2ghz Core 2 CPU...and of course the bluetooth viop phone ..so that will account for the £200 extra cost.

IMO well worth the extra £200. It's a very well speced PC, probably faster than most desktops.

That one has the specs i'm looking for. The battery life does put me off though. Will see what Dell can offer in the next few weeks. Would like Vista pre installed to save the time of installation.

I bought this model the other day and its an awesome laptop for the price you are paying...

I bought it for £799 on Saturday, so don't know if I am able to get a price difference or something. Maybe someone tell me if that is possible with Comet.

If anyone has any questions about this laptop please ask away...

What I can add it does include a firewire port and it is indeed a gigabit lan connection. It also includes a Geforce 7600SE card that actually contain 256MB dedicated memory instead of turbocache. The battery life is about 2.5 hours depending on what you do and stuff. There is also a PC card slot on top of the Express card slot.

[COLOR=black][SIZE=2]In my opinion, it's better to have Windows XP preinstalled then have the option of upgrading to Vista once it is more compatible with more software.[/SIZE][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][SIZE=2] [/SIZE][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][SIZE=2]Anyways, it is eligible for a free vista upgrade but that excludes posting and packaging.[/SIZE][/COLOR]
