My partners sis is thinking of buying one of these from Comet.What are they like as a make of computer? I would provide a link but the one in the newspaper ad doesnt appear on their website.

It's the SA90 model, Intel dual-core, 1gb RAM, 250gb , Nvidia graphics, Vista Premium, 15" monitor.
£399.99

Acer are very good, but these days a 15inch monitor is very small. A 17inch model is much better and not much more expensive. I'm using a 20.5 inch widescreen which is the same height as a 17inch conventional and find it superb when working on two documents simultaneously.

That's good enough for me to pass on. You are right about the monitor. Ive only got a 15" and Im starting to squint.

Acer PC systems are manufactured by Elite Computer Systems (of motherboard fame), or at least were as recently as 2005. See:

Ive got an Elitegroup mobo in my Linux pc and it's on 14 hours a day, so cant be bad. That's if they are one in the same.
Not had a complaint yet, which can only be good.
