small hd but otherwise nice spec for the price

The HDD size is a bit strange for this kind of spec.

It does seem odd! :thinking:

Don't really think the average person purchasing a low(ish) end specification laptop like this needs more than 80GB hard drive.

I purchased the same laptop in March for £420 (ish) at Amazon.

lowish? with a T7300 cpu?? is that low spec these days?

I would say no. Sure, you're getting a larger HD, but that's it. And the 5750 is not as good of a CPU as the T7300 for enough reasons that I, personally, would get the posted deal over the PC World one. Depending on what you are using it for and how much you would be interested in stretching your budget amazon.co.uk/Ace…e_1 is a better machine, though the value for money is still a bit questionable. It has a 250 GB drive and a dedicated video card in it as well, which is what would be the deal maker if you plan to play games a lot. The 8600M in the amazon deal isn't the best card out there, but it's rated better than most.

However, for anyone looking to put XP on the Acer laptops, either be prepared to spend some time digging up the proper drivers for the hardware or else make sure before hand that Acer actually has the drivers. I got a refurb 5920G a few weeks ago and had a bit of a time getting XP working correctly on it. Worst thing is that I am still running the drive in IDE mode rather than AHCI because I didn't slipstream the drivers onto an installation CD and haven't been brave enough to potentially screw up my XP installation and screw around with those settings now. I plan on replacing the 5400RPM drive with a faster 7200 or possibly SSD in the next year or so anyway, so I'll probably just leave it alone until then.
