Great Deal

AdvantagesGreat Hardware Package

DisadvantagesInternet connection really slow whilst powering from AC

"I bought my ACER travelmate 508T in the after christmas sales at Currys, getting a buy one pay next december offer. It runs like a dream. With a P350 processor even my demanding score writing program (SIbelius) runs smoothly and the sound card adds a polish to my laptop that friends' laptops can't compete with. It came with a funky tiepin microphone that records incredibly clearly and has nearly five gigabytes of memory as well as 32 M Ram. The ..." Read review

Useful

AdvantagesUser-friendly

DisadvantagesBulky

"This notebook is quite useful for when you are travellin and need to do work at the same time. However, I do think it is still slightly too heavy and bulky. It is quite user-friendly, so I should think anyone would be able to use it no matter what there computer competence is like. In some ways it is not very good in the way that it is not very powerful, the battery needs to be recharged very often and when printing sometimes you are unable to print ..." Read review

Not Bad

AdvantagesWell Built

Disadvantagesheavy

"Before I purchase my Acer 512 Notebook, my friends advised me not to buy this brand as it is not reliable. Well, now I got to say I have no regret. It is a nice and tidy notebook. The part I like most is the CD control at the front. One can play a music from CD without getting into Windows. The built up and the appearance of the keyboard and indication is interesting. Everything features can be access easily. The only problem is that it is a little ..." Read review

An old classic

AdvantagesA good laptop

DisadvantagesA bit old

"This lap top is quite good for it's age. I don't have one but my friend has one and they are good. They have a cd player in the front which is external which is good for listening to music on. The speakers also help in this. The lap top (like all lap tops) is easy to carry around and is good for working on airplanes, trains, and cars. So if you are wondering on an inexpensive but relatively old laptop then this should be one of your first choices. ..." Read review
