Found 16th Mar 2007
I am currently looking to replace my Acer Travelmate laptop - it was top of the range two years ago but is starting to let me down somewhat.

I am looking to get a new laptop that is more than capable of taking Vista in its stride with the followin specs:

RAM: Minimum of 2gb
HD: Dont care really as use externals
Graphics Card: Definite preference for 256mb or top of the range 128mb
Processor: As fast as possible
Screen: 15 inch or larger, preference for widescreen
Other: Integrated memory card reader would be nice, as would bluetooth


Dont really want to spend more than £750 is it possible?!?!

Thanks!

Well the Acer 5685WLMi at Comet fits your criteria. However you may struggle to find one and the free Vista Upgrade ran out yesterday. You would probably get a discount to take that into account though.

Its not on the Website anymore but I saw one in Comet yeterday in Edinburgh.

2Ghz core 2 duo, 2gig ram, 256mb 7600 Go GPU. Was £700.

May have missed the boat by a few days though.:-(

Thanks Spud... will check it out.

Anyone else?!?! Have been checking all over the place

Unfortunately I can't say I've seen anything on the usual sites, I suppose its a matter of potluck when you find a decent offer coming along, but there don't seem to be too many in that spec at the moment.

Good luck anyway

That Acer deal is intense! Anyone know if it is still available instore??

The Tesco deal does still seem to be available in a few increasingly limited stores, great bargain if you can find one

By the way, good cheap deal on Dell at the moment, might be worth a look although the graphics card is almost certainly too low spec for you.

shame about the 1gb of ram but nevertheless an excellent spec and 3% quidco....they have a 2gb ram model but looks like it only comes with XP home...if interested it may be worth emailing them to see if they could provide this model with 2gb of ram for say £50 more?

So comet seem to have a similar acer for 765.99 on their website, but just with a 1.6 not a 2.0 processor. comet.co.uk/com…257

Whats the tesco deal?

this is also a good deal...reduce warranty to minimum and upgrade graphics, and you have a decent spec..4.5% quidco

and only a gforce 7300 card whereas the Acer that was £699.99 had a superior 7600.

The Tesco deal was a really good specced Acer that was being sold off at £499.99...doubt there any left as that deal was quite a few weeks ago.
