Not a bad deal - However I'm pretty sure the 068 SKU comes with standard Intel 940/945 128MB graphics and not the GF7300...

Pretty sure this is the same thing available for £419.90 with free delivery and laptop bag etc for July.

Not sure how to make the link look professional like you guys do but if someone is about to buy this they might be able to save a few quid

****Delivery only free I think with 14 day super saver option*** edit

i dont recommend acer at all, a friend had a grusome experiance with them

The case and mouse only come free if you pay for the extended warrenty, which at £65 ( or £99 for accidental and international cover ) seems very reasonable, but does change this price somewhat. This simply acer deal looks very good though.

Yeh I realised this after my original post and made the edit reagrding the '14 day saver delivery which is free'..my bad Still if you can wait a fortnight...419 aint bad for this machine!

well basicly his laptop screen failed, so he had to send it back, after he did this he was sent a replacment, around a month late. The next laptop he had off them Hard Drive failed, and when he asked if it was possible to send this back for some reason they would not accept it. The only way they would take it back if he brought it to there factory in plymouth or somewhere stupid. He gave up. Seems a good deal yes, but i thought i just let you guys and girls know.

well it clearly states Gf7300 graphics...so must be correct.

I would suggest this is the same but with a smaller 120gb HDD....£477.99 so suggest this deal is far better.

so guys what do we reckon does this laptop from micro direct have the nvidia geforce 7300 or not cause im gonna order now and i need to go to bed ...zzzzz

well it clearly states it does more than once in the description...so it must be right I guess.

Acer, Dell and Lenovo (formerly IBM) are the laptop brands I rate the highest. Samsung and a few others follow closely behind.

id say the dell deal posted on hot uk deals is far better value


£327.28 delivered (4.5% off with quidco)


AMD TK 53 X2
15.4" Wide Screen WXGA (1280 x 800)
1024MB 533MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM
120GB (5400rpm) SATA Hard Drive
ATI Radeon® Xpress 1150 HyperMemory (integrated)

price is actually very decent with a 7300 gfx card

voted hot!

With the Acer you're paying extra for: better CPU, better graphics (dedicated chip instead of integrated) and an extra 40Gb of storage space.

Both are good deals, it just depends on your needs. If you're just going to be using it for net access and Office then the Dell is a better buy. If you're going to be doing the occasional gaming and need the extra storage space - maybe for music/videos - then got for the Acer.

Just ordered one of these, thanks OP, green incoming!

I asked the question about the graphics card as the same model no on laptop direct is showing as integrated graphics :?

Any idea if this is a suitable memory upgrade, will be cheap enough to bung a couple in! play.com/PC/…tml all I can tell is that some of the numbers match!

You have identified desktop memory not laptop...if it's true to form the subject laptop should have a 1gb stick of ram fitted (not the usual 2x 512mb sticks)...my advice is either ensure this beforehand by checking with micro direct or check when delivered and order as necessary.....something like this if an additional 1gb stick is required
ebuyer.com/UK/…b/0

Thought It didn't look right! Cool, i'll have a look when it's delivered.

No reply from Microdirect about the graphics card yet!

Guys, if you visit [url]www.acer.co.uk[/url], then navigate to the Aspire 5630 notebook range, you will see that the model which Microdirect is advertising (the LX.AXY0X.068) is listed, and does not contain a GF7300 graphics card.

I have this machine, an older configuration (LX.AG50J.169) which has the GF7300 and a single stick of 1Gb Ram. I also got a 3 year Acer warranty. This was for £499 on clearance from Tesco, this offer is long gone but had a dedicated hotukdeals thread at the start of the year.

Just checked the Acer website, I think it's doubtful that it has the dedicated graphics :-(

This same laptop also available here for £449.97:
]http//ww…asp

Graphics: Integrated Graphics supporting 224MB

It looks like this model doesn't have a dedicated graphics card, only the cheapo integrated graphics-set!

the model number will not be a guide to the spec of the laptop as Acer have different builds with the same model name.....in fact they also do specific build specs for a client..like my Acer I bought at Comet has slightly different specs from how it is described on the Acer website.

Micro Direct are the only people that can confirm that it has the AS SPECIFIED ON THEIR WEBSITE g7300 graphics.....if you find out that the quoted specs are in error then this deal should be amended accordingly.

there's also this one at laptopsdirect.with the same model number

True, but this is 100% accurate:
Manufacturers Code: [COLOR=Red]LX.AXY0X.068[/COLOR]
Do a google search and you will find out that this model doesn't have a dedicated graphics card!

Original Poster

Well if it is INTEGRATED GRAPHICS then micro direct have misled ...so surely if it is not sold as described then that is illegal.....anyway all I can suggest is that do not buy until micro direct are able to confirm the graphics on this lappy.

Anyone had any luck with the graphics confirmation?.... I tried but got nowhere.

Just confirmed with Micro Direct that it does have the Geforce in it (according to the despatch bloke reading off the box).

Thanks for that..I just hope this deal gets some heat as the spec is a bargain IMO.

As I posted earlier, I spoke to them and they confirmed the Geforce card was in the machine.

yep but its a different number
the one in tescos was .169
with a 120gb hdd

I'd highly recommend Acer. I bought a 5633 last December from Comet for £580, and that was without the geforce graphics. It does everything I want it do so I'm very happy with it.

Excellent, we'll see when it arrives, still no email confirmation tho!

Banned

I've ordered and got my e-mail confirmation straight away....... :thumbsup:

Got e-mail confirmation for the order, just haven't had a reply to my emails about the graphics card!

For anyone thats ordered, get a screenshot of the microdirect website saved. That way if it turns out not to have the graphics card you can prove they did advertise it.

Looks an excellent deal, seriously considering ordering. Ticks all the right boxes for me, and the bonus of a the graphics chip to boot!

I saved the page on my HD just in case!
