I ordered this laptop on the 22nd of December and Play delievered it on the 24th. Exceptional delivery and free.
As for the laptop, well it's fast, windows 7 loads extremely quickly. Yu get Windows 7 Home Premium x64 which has not had any problems with any x86 application i have installed. I believe premium includes the Media Centre applications as wll as Acers own version of it.
Good points with the laptop
- extremely light
- very easy to setup
- core 2 duo processor so really fast
- full size clicky keyboard and numeric keypad
- dolby home theatre sound which blows you away
- picture quality excellent
The niggles with the laptop
- Big screen but maximum 1366x768 resolution
- Mousepad very sensitive
- Clunky mouse button
- Bluetooth enable/disable button but no bluetooth module fitted
All in all an excellent machine that I am still getting used to and still finding loads of new things about.
I woud recommend this for anyone that wants a home media machine as it has hdmi so you can plug it into your cd tv.
A wee note to new users, remember to have some branded blank dvd's handy (4) so you can make Windows 7 install DVD's and additional drivers DVD ( Found under Acer as Acer eRecovery Management)
