yeah thats what i mean - its not particularly portable at the size and weight so battery life not so big a factor.

http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/Acer_Aspire_8930G-584G32Bn_Gemstone_Blue_Laptop_LX.AC20X.039/version.asp?PID=1003 Cheaper. Only Downside is that its GS and not GT.



at this price point i think 30 quid to upgrade graphics is worth it though?

(processor the same? not sure..)

Hopefully you can spend the 6 months weight-training to prepare, as it will be like a solid lump of lead to carry around.

Only real use is as a Desktop replacement... I have tried a laptop as that - don't bother just buy a desktop, cheaper better faster, quieter and easier to sort when something goes wrong, and since LCD monitors arrived, it doesn't look a lot worse either now!

I bought this yesterday from Argos - not sure if I like it. The screen takes getting used to - feels as if my eyes aren't wide enough apart to view the whole screen.

That apart, it's not a bad purchase - the trackpad has a weird surface to it - not the best. Portable enough for me, the only moving I expect to do, is from room to room, so portability not a great factor for me.

I should also add the the specs supplied were slightly different on my model (same cat no from argos)

4GB DDR2 RAM. = 4gb DDR3

* nVidia GeForce 9600M GT graphics card.
* 512MB graphics memory. = 1gb for me.
