  uneekaj 18:59 17 Dec 2004

Im am currently a student and would like to buy a new laptop. I plan to spend about £850. I would like the laptop to be able to burn dvds as well as playing a few games such as football manager and the sims 2. Does anybody have any suggestions or help that they could give me.

Acer one: more portable, light (2.7kg) longer battery life (Intel Centrnio? processor)

Tiny one: it is a desktop replacement, 3.6kg, battery time will be shorter, but slightly faster and Graphics card has more memory (128Mb, Acer has 64MB)

Tiny is a big box shifter in he UK, do not know who make laptop for it.

ACER is THE bigest laptop maker in the world, it makes laptop for many other famous brand such as Toshiba

Maybe you could check out the cost to extend warrenty to three years assuming you still have 3 years in your course
