can you get me an ultrabook from the 3 above for this price? you cant buy a BM for a fiestas price lol.

Having said that I have a samsung S3 mobile and it crashes all the time, Have a samsung american fridge freezer but because when it arrived the kitchen was being installed so we didnt take it out of the box for the 1st 7 days now they dont want to know the fact that it came with a dent in the body as we were supposed to report it in the first 7 days, awful awful customer services.

The deal I had from JL blew this out the water, but if I'm honest I didn't really like it and returned it. Mine was the i7 + SSD version for £40 more.

the JL deal was 599 not 499, and was a 2nd gen i7 with about the same benchmark scores as the i5 in this one.

thanku lollosaurus, what do you make of this deal

Keen spec for the price, although the lack of 1080p display is a slight letdown. Acer are notorious for loading their machines with crapware, so a cleanup would be in order

how much is that?

Sorry, your 100 closest stores do not have your item in stock

Bit more expensive with 128G SSD here:

ebay.co.uk/itm…145

Looks ok to me

I eventually returned this exact model to Currys only 2 weeks ago, I paid £540 from them in early October as a gift for my wife, this laptop and mainly currys have been a nightmare. I bought it with the plan to trade-in an old laptop for £200 with the deal they had at the time and hence pay ~£340. In the end I have been out of pocket for months and had to pay more for a good working laptop.

Pro's:
- It's very thin, light and fast.
- Looks good.

Con's:
- Relatively short battery life compared with the similar ultrabooks.
- Comes with Windows 7 by default, hence boot from sleep not as good as a Win 8 machine, but its quite functional.
- Build quality was not good, ours was supplied with a touchpad that was not flush with the body, which made it difficult to left click. Tried to get this fixed which was where the trouble really started,
- Currys! It took many arguments with currys for them to repair it. Repair took a month and then when it came back its top was damaged and I had to refuse to accept it. I eventually got a store credit after over 2 months without a working laptop, ten expensive phone calls to their customer services and three long visits to the local store. I was repeatedly misled and lied to. They refused to give me a refund at any stage, the credit was only usable for in-stock items in one local store (despite me buying it online), in order to get a good ultrabook from their limited stock, I ended up having to pay £160 extra. Compared with the customer service I've received from large online retailers. This was awful.
- List price is a bit of a joke, this was available for £540-£640 about 3 months ago.

Conclusion
- Its a pretty reasonable ultrabook, although the shorter battery life is a pain.
- Buying from Currys was a mistake, if you are unlucky to have an issue with it, then things can be a nightmare.
- I wonder if one of the ones they are selling is the one I had returned?

nothing wrong with Acer. years old product dropped on floor still able to buy parts from ebay to replace. TWICE! an still work in superb condition until now. and yes I bought a refurbished one from dixons.

nothing is wrong I even using a Acer dual sim smartphone which I am using to posting this comment.

It's pretty darn good price for something of only 1.36kg

...Trouble is the battery,

Can anyone advise on a similar weight/spec ultrabook for similar (maybe a bit more) price but with a battery that's going to last as long as an ultrabook should.

thanks.

Nicolas

Take a look at the MacBook with a retina display, you would notice it but for this price I would happily do without!

oos Sheffield & further away.

I got one of these with 120 SSD slightly cheaper too...

My one easily lasts 7 hours, battery hasn't been an issue at all. It is the ssd only version though.

The SSD only version was cheaper than this around the windows 8 launch. But it lacks the 2nd connector that this hybrid version has. ( hdd and ssd)

Does anyone know if this comes with a USB-to-Ethernet adapter?

Yet another Currys deal where no one appears to have stock.

You would - you can see the screen res difference in smaller screens, like the iPad or Nexus 7

Bought one of these today from the CEX I work at, great bit of kit, using it right now, traded the Lenovo Thinkpad I got from one of the deals on here towards it, really nice piece of kit

Shame it hasn't got the full SSD, but they're pretty easy to upgrade I hear
