Afraid it's cold from me, but good on ya for posting the deal.

For the price, the HDD and RAM is good. And battery life is good.

Where it lacks: No dedicated graphics; would expect a card at £400
-Weight - 2.4 kg. This is standard for a 15.6" laptop. Don't expect it to be any lighter than similar laptops.
-The processor. It's a 1.4 Ghz single core. Unsure about the architecture of this model, but I'd expect it to not run faster than the atom processors you find in netbooks. This is the main downfall.

have some heat - 8 hours battery life with a built in dvd

lol this will run faster than an Atom for sure, in fact pretty much anything will run faster than an Atom. An Atom has the performance of a Pentium M from 2003/4...
You wouldn't want a dedicated graphics card in this as you wouldn't get the long battery life.

HOT :thumbsup:

This looks good for the Mrs, her 701 eee has died on her and she wants a full size laptop this time around. Anyone know if this would run windows7 64bit?

Yes, but the 'free' upgrade from Acer would be 32 bit as they don't give you a choice. i.e if Vista is 32 bit then your Win7 is also 32 bit. :roll:

'Free' as in £12.78 postage and handling assuming it's elligible.

Good amount of RAM - will be nice to use.
Single Core CPU - not an issue if using standard apps
AND a 320Gb external IOMEGA 2.5" Harddrive (should be mentioned in title)

When you order the upgrade, do you get a new product key and DVD?

Thinking of borrowing a 64-bit disk if the Win 7 licence sticker is valid for both 32 and 64-bit. And would the 64-bit pre-order retail disk work.

OEM upgrades are different from Retail so if you have 32 bit you are stuck with it and even if it comes with a key it should in theory be for a 32 bit install only.
OEM upgrades tend to be BIOS locked so there is no key to enter anyway. In that situation you just need to get hold of a 64 bit Acer OEM DVD and it should just work although you won’t be licensed to use it.
I can't see that you can use your Win7 Retail disc with this system unless you use the serial number that it came with of course.

I don’t know what Acer do as my upgrade hasn’t arrived yet but this is typical from other OEM upgrades I’ve had.

"2.4KG - this is standard for a 15.6" laptop"

This is NOT standard for a £400 15.6" laptop! A typical Dell cheapie will weigh in at 3.5+ KG when you add a 6 cell battery!

Voted hot. This was £550 a few months ago without the ext HDD.

I got one on Saturday for the Mrs. Had a little play with it and it seems nice to use, ive sent for the windows 7 update dvd too.

As someone who's had an Acer laptop for just under 8 months I have one piece of advice;

do not buy them!

I ignored all the people who told me they were poor quality and i accused them of being brand *****s, well not anymore.

the keys stopped working (with NORMAL USE), a feint red line appeared on the screen, the hinge to the dvd drive came off, the fan stopped working properly and now the motherboard isn't working all within 9 months

Unless you're going to keep your laptop under lock and key on a desk and never open or close it, then don't buy an Acer.

Look on internet forums, the reviews say it all. OVERWHELMINGLY
