Anyone know if this has an HDMI port? Its not clear from the site but if you google it the same model from other sellers has HDMI.

It does have an HDMI port, also wireless b/g/n rather than just b. Nice laptop for the money!

not a bad price but i personally don't like the build quality on acer laptops. still hot though.

bought this last week, good laptop, onlything about it im not happy with is the mono sound. but other than that it is fine. upgraded the ram from 3gb to 6gb, took the 1gb out and put in a 4gb module.

Looks like a good price for one with Intel i3 and 500 Gb HDD.

Would you really notice stereo separation with both outputs that close?

Thank you Smurfy, I have updated the title!

is this laptop powerful enough to play games like world of warcraft?

quidco as well

Bought one on saturday and after brief check i've realized its i3-370m cpu - model as5742-374g50mn (if i remember). Lady at the counter was really suprised , she called tesco HO and they've admitted that there is an error in product description. I've received the refund but waited over 90minutes to get it sorted by tesco staff (even management was involved in this case). I3-370m is only 130mhz slower than i3-380m but for this price you'd get build quality from other manufacturers. Cheers

rather than just b? dont think a laptop has come with just b for a very long time! in fact i think n is the standard now.

Tesco has got no idea what they are selling

can tell by the fact they dont even mention about HDMI on their description!!

Does anyone have any info on a i3 in asda at £290-£300 I read it somewhere on here but can't find it now

Have you tried an Acer recently (last three ish years)? The build quality of Acer's consumer line has really come a long way. I'd even go as far as to say I think they build better cheap laptops than Dell do now.

Have you tried this laptop? Is a good laptop for surfing net but the MONO is CACA. its 2011. mono sound is 19 century stuff. and dont give that headphones mobojambo to this for a laptop to have mono is a joke!!! i know i payed £379.

Does anyone know if the mono sound would affect calling with a headset?,i use mine quite a bit for calls.

is this better than the ASUS deal posted yesterday hotukdeals.com/dea…86/
considering overall performance/build quality?

Looking for a new laptop at present but will not purchase one without an 8 hour battery life !!

Hi, does this only have wireless b, not b/g/n anyone?

Sorry, next time I'll read the thread proper!!! Sorry!

Wireless Built in802.11b?? I am wrong or tesco wrong?
