I bought this laptop around 4 years ago, and here I am still typing on it now!
The spec is this;
Intel pentium prossessor p6100
15.6" HD Led lCD
Intel HD graphics
3GB DDR3 Memory
320 GB HDD
DVD Super multi DL drive
Acer Nplify 802.11b/g/n
6 cell Li-ion battery
As i said, this laptop has lasted me years now and Im not tyhe best person at looking after my belongings. It has been dropped, has food and fluff in the keyboard and the odd wine spillage and is still alive! Its very easy to use, reliable, and a hardy machine. The screen is great to watch films on, a nice size.
On the downside, I do now have to plug it in to the charger when in use! The battery is really quite poor, so this is not one to use if your out and about.
Initially the battery lasted a few hours, now I'm lucky if I get 20 minutes. But it is quite an old machine. Also, the speakers on it are just awful! Lucky I use a HDMI cable to connect it to the TV and use those speakers. The ones built into the laptop offer a tin, buzzing quality of sound that to be honest hurts my ears after some time. But those disadvantages aside, I love this computer. I payed quite a bit as I bought it of little woods so ended up paying around £500 over months of installments. It can be picked up a lot cheaper in high street stores or online.
