I bought an Acer Ferrai 3200 a few years ago and i went along with the above suggestions even though the machine cost £1500. i was so peeved when at only 14 months it went wrong and i was told that the triple mothe board had some how developed a crack. to buy a new mother board and to pay for the labour i was quoted £650+VAT. I was gutted.
i ended up buying a Toshiba unit for £399 and it had a highter spec just did not have the pose value. I guess what i am saying is that even though it was fairly new Acer did not want to help but the price off computers is always coming down and you can buy a better computer two years on for less money. I now have a 17" HP with 3 GB ram and a 250 gb ram and it only cost £449. I love this machine and i have not taken out the warranty because the features of laptops are limited so when they go wrong it is easy to sell it to the wife that cheaper than to buy an new one rather than repair.
