I've seen deals posted for the cheaper i3 version of this laptop, but this seemed like a good price (to me, at least) for the i5 version...

My girlfriend's had an Acer for a few years now, and it's been pretty good... Didn't realise that the price had been the same for a while - I thought it was part of the Christmas sale...

I was considering buying an Acer again, until read the latest Which? review or Pc/tablet brand reliability etc.

Tablet brand reliability table (Which? December 14: p.29) :
Top 3: Apple (85%), Amazon (77%) Samsung (77%)
Bottom 3: Acer (72%) Lenovo (72%) Asus (48%)
Sample size: 4,994

Percentage of tablets that developed faults in the first two years (average):
Top 3: Apple (9%) Samsung (15%), Amazon (18%)
Bottom 3: Lenovo (23%) Acer (25%) Asus (36%)

"Average takes into accouny overall sample size and fault countsfor each brand"

Hope this helps

10% cashback on my Halifax debit card brings this down to £314.99

Are you sure you wouldn't prefer to put some of it on your credit card for extra protection?

AAB - did you get the one you reserved? If so, what are your impressions so far?

I was supposed to be getting one today, but due to circumstances beyond my control, I can no longer afford it...

Maa1 - that's the reliability results for tablets, but what was said about laptops?

Well when I got there I saw the one below, and thought that was a good deal (as I never play games etc so for me i3 would be sufficient) but they didn't had any in stock. So didn't buy one afterall. I'm still pondering which one to go for now and can't make up my mind.

This laptop has been cheaper at currys for about a week, as I've been trying to decide on buying it (£329 and £299 if use O2 priority code).

It's i3 processor but has 8gb RAM, where as the Argos one is i5 with 4gb RAM. I'm not sure which is the better deal.

The i5 has a much better benchmark score, 3438 vs. 2505
