In my opinion the Acer 4602lci purely because the battery life is better. How about this one though click here That price is delivered!

I ordered one on Thursday and they tried to deliver it the following morning! Note you get a Dual Layer DVD Recorder. If you want to double up the RAM it costs £45 (Recommended)

Should have said that`s the 4602LMI - next model up from the one you`ve mentioned and with a Free 3G Datacard actually worth about £100.

did you pay the £20 so they check it before you receive it ??

I didn`t even notice that. When I upgraded the memory they said that it would have to be installed by them and tested otherwise it would invalidate the warranty. (Load of tosh!) The e-mailed invoice actually notes this fact as a free of charge item.

Another (untried) service they offer free of charge is a 24/7 software support line - free for the first week. After that you subscribe. I personally don`t need that because I am capable of sorting my own (and others) problems out most of the time.

I telephoned to confirm all the details with them because I`ve never dealt with them before. Customer service was excellent, "Alan" phoned me back when asked to check something for me. He offered me overnight delivery for an extra £9.99 which I declined in favour of their free 3/4 day delivery and as I said City Link tried to deliver it the following day anyway! So far I`m impressed.

My advice to you would be take it as advertised, upgrade the memory if you can afford to and post back on the forum if you need any help along the way.

Is it a better deal than the one you were talking about?
