Did I not post this first?

hot

Very hotttttt.... finally I got wot I wanted at the price I was willing to pay... yes, another 10-20 quid and if it was 320/500 GB HDD would have been ideal but its ok...

Great price and voted hot.

Sadly looking for a desktop up to £300 currently but people seem nervy about posting these on here. Perhaps it's because laptops look cooler?

Been waiting for this deal for months - cheers op

It's got me tempted,shame i don't have the money in the bank

Good price for a basic laptop, have some heat

I'd buy it if it had stereo speakers.

I am looking for a good spec PC for £200 - /3300 and no more.
Can i get help on that please?

I haver been looking for a month now and not 1 offer on HUKD with more that 500 votes.
I was hoping something would come along that will pick up heat and i would purchase after reading all usefull comments on HUKD.

*£200 to £300

The one you posted, but it's £100 more, so you'd expect that surely?

The HP is much better. I might order this for my little brother.

Heat added.

I would as well, can't believe some of the Acer models have mono speaker. Hope it's not the way forward with Acer...

Good spot op heat added

good price

Good price but on a personal note I wouldn't buy another Acer product after how I got treated by their support people.

do you reckon it's fast enough to play back 1080p video?

Major RSI look at where the touchpad is, good deal tho

Bought this last week for £10 more. It's a cracking laptop for the money.

The one last week had a 320gb drive and a free case.

It should play mkv 1080p fine using xbmc for example which has hardware acceleration built in for the intel video chipset (DXVA2)

Your dead right. I think I got the better deal then.;)

It's back to £249.99.

Just picked it up for 249.99. Cracking deal - much better than a lenovo at cll, particularly on the webcam front. Thanks!

Wish I saw that, think I would have gone for it. Just read it has mono speakers though..............I continually dissuade myself from purchasing one until it ticks every box, and the price keeps tumbling so I'm in a constant cycle of waiting!

It's back to £249.99.
