anyone?gonna order tonight hopefully.

I'd go with the Acer.

  Woolwell 23:50 23 Jan 2010

To contradict John Williams I wouldn't choose the Acer. The Zoostorm has a better processor.
What's your budget?

  Woolwell 23:59 23 Jan 2010

Actually I'm not sure that I would choose either. Have a look at Dell, Toshiba or an Acer with similar processor to the Zoostorm.

  JohnWilliams 06:08 24 Jan 2010

I was going on the fact that the Acer had more ram, bigger hard drive and slightly bigger screen. The difference in cpu speed will not be noticeable.

The Acer does not have a built-in web cam or mic, so if you do a lot with Skype for instance that would be a big draw back.

He could purchase a standalone webcam if needed and it would be much better quality than a built in one.

Thanks for replies,more info my budget is £400,ive already got a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000,The acer has ddr3 would that be better feature than the processor improvement on the zoostorm?
as you can see i chickened out ordering last night.

  JohnWilliams 14:01 24 Jan 2010

Yes it would. It is faster ram.

  Woolwell 17:02 24 Jan 2010

I think you'l find that e-buyer have got the ram specs wrong. According to Acer and Tesco it is DDR2 plus click here
I would check this out first. If you want the Acer then John Lewis have it for the same price with a bigger warranty.
