Help on ACER PCs

  tburchell 20:07 30 Jan 2009

I am looking to buy a new laptop and have been advised that ACER is a good name to look for? I know nothing about this make and was wondering what others here think? I am also looking at DELL and HP too. Any thoughts?

You get a lot for your money with acer, I have bought 3 at least for others, no complaints from them and well made.

Dell - Good design and can be good value but they seem to have cut corners recently and hardware failures seem common. So consider a service contract essential.

HP seem to be good well made pcs, esp laptops but like acer and dell they put a lot of trial software on them so you spend a day or two clearing this out!

Just make sure you et what you need in terms of space and facilities plus you like the keyboard and screen!

I own 2 acer laptops and an HP all current models and I can say the keyboard, and general build quality of the HP is far superior to the acer, like chalk and cheese.

My sis in law has just bought a HP and I thought it looked cheap and nasty. I suppose it depends on the model.
