"have laptop will travel"

Well where to start, how about at the beginning. Back in the the heady days of Windows 95 a pentium 1 166mhz 1.5 gig HD I took the plunge and visited PC World and bought an acer desktop, being firmly rooted in the commodore camp i was reluctant to take the pc route, I took the Plunge 10 years on and now onto a sony vaio desktop (beautiful machine but thats another story).
So now up to date I was made redundant after 15 years so as a treat thought I would love a laptop and took a trip to Comet, anything decent was very pricey but set my heart on the Acer, but my financial advisor, wife for short said no to the price tag of £799 so being male went off in a sulk to staples next door, of which i was glad as i set my eyes upon the 4150 at £599 and more features of the "old" model next door.
Then came the del monte moment "the wife, she says yes" so happy as a sand boy strolled out drove home with new toy in tow.

Well My old acer was sturdy and very reliable, so what 9 years later did Acer have in store for me............. to my sheer delight nothing has really changed, plugged in, booted up and approx 20 minutes later is was up and running,fantastic.
Thought here we go set up the wireless network, clicked on wireless connection entered my wep and off it went connected first time and very solid connection. It was lovely as it was august so into the garden being a good 50ft from my wireless connection thought maybe be intermittent, but no 3 hours of wireless connectivity and a few beers later it was a shame i had to put it on charge, so a big thumbs up for its wifi connection.

DVD playback/burner again very reliable dvd a little jerky if using the internet but musn't grumble. As for burning as yet i have had no "coasters" 100% burn rate so far, and not much drain on the battery either, so again big thumbs up.

Screen, lovely and clear so now looking to by an acer flat panel monitor....when Argos can be bothered to get any in !!!

Memory and hard drive well catered for, as I'm a keen photographer and memory tight on the camera although a half gig card installed once start shooting in raw mode things get a little tight, so again the Acer comes in handy I took it away to yorkshire.... no not like that i took the family as well, but a fortnights worth of photos would not fit on my camera so transferred to the Acer throught the built in card reader, came in very handy as my nephew was running out of memory card space so transferred his pictures too, different memory card but the acer caters for 4 different types so no problems there either.


Welll can't say much more apart from the only thing that lets it down, The case scratches very easy as i found to my horror when the cat walked over it while it was closed and left lovely scratch marks mmm wasn't pleased, but its travelled,its been bashed about even, and nothing to do with the laptop slammed it shut in a mood and thought that was a very stupid thing to do expecting to see a dead laptop or dead or half working screen but no had no detrimental affect at all Phew..

So in Summary hats off to Acer and a well constructed reliable machine ...maybe in another 10 years i will buy another one

    It is always best to stick with a name you already know especially when you have been so impressed with your last one. Fionaxx

    Very entertaining review, contained stuff I wanted to know, can get the specs from the website. Sounds good to me and if I didn't already have an ACER Laptop, I would probably go out and get one. - Jan
