    most have this but i don't see it as very useful... i'm more concerned about the screen on the laptop than the £40 hard disk...

    if your considering laptops make sure you get semi ruggedised minimum... (or opt for a Windows Mac... (a mac with windows install instead of os x)

    unless your going to make the parents pay a large deposit...

    allot of people saying bad words about Acer, and it seemed like these bad words followed on from the comment of possible "eee PC's"

    im confused, considering EEE PC's are an asus product

    Acer = Poor after sales. We were treated really shabbily over the "exploding capacitors" debacle a while back. Just getting the phone answered was the best part of 30 mins for each machine, and they would have sooner be damned than accept that is was the MoBo going down. Had many HDDs changed by them (to no effect) before I started changing the capacitors myself.

    I didn't realise Acer and Asus were related.... the only worrying fact about the eee PC's is the fact that they have solid state HDDs... (4GB )
