Have decided to get a laptop or netbook, mostly just for mumsnetting surfing and email etc, plan to still use desktop for photos.

Does this look ok, I don't have a massive budget and don't know much about computersblush. I thought a laptop will be a better idea than a netbook so I can use it to watch DVDs on as well. I don't know how to download music or films or anything usually, maybe the odd short youtube rubbish.

Can't beat it at that price.

Seemed good value for the spec but is it a pile of shit??

My desktop is a Dell and 6 yrs old, I just put 1BG of RAM in last week to replace the 256kbblush and I'm chuffed its loads faster. That is the extent of my IT.

Acer are a reputable manufacturer. I'm not techy at all, but it looks good to me.

Except maybe the short battery life, is that fairly standard on laptops?

No idea! But I will mostly be using it for shortish spells anyway I think, and at home, so am hoping it won't be too much of a problem.

Acer are a good brand, they are usually pretty reliable and value for money.

That'll do for me, just hoping it wouldn't be 10 people all saying they were rubbish <dusts off credit card>

Well I got it, and it seems rather fab!

Found a £5 off code to order it, and got about £6.50 in clubcard points as well so it worked out v good value IMHO.
