Sounds good on first look. Do you have a link to the machine, or to Acer's details?

Is it really half price ?? (I never trust these kind of offers!!)

I have found the same system (without the 15" Monitor granted) for £586 inc vat. I imagine you could pick up a similar monitor for the £164 difference.

It is for sale from a few places and no-one is charging £1500.

I'm not saying its not a good deal but dont buy it thinking you are getting it at half the going price.

Link for one of the other prices.

Just noticed it also comes with worksuite 2003.

It does actually seem like quite a good deal, but still not half price :-)

I should have posted the here

click here

then click on - clearance - and it will take you to the acer in question.

I agree with you [email protected] and I'm sure if you look around you can probably find better or at least the equivalent. I just thought it seemed a good deal and worth a mention.

What is speed of P4 processor with the machine? This is not stated. So they can give you any P4 processor.

If your Acer machine were to go wrong and needed attention you may be faced with a long wait for return of your PC. I sent my laptop away for repair exactly one month ago and it still hasn`t returned yet. I will post more details in a new thread soon....

5200 FX is the budget Geforce FX card, 120gb hard drive is quite standard, as has been said any P4 processor - my guess is 2.4 as that's quite common about now. Memory could be anything 256-512 expected.

At £1500 .. that would be horrendous! £750 brings it down to a more reasonable price.

"Is it really half price ?? (I never trust these kind of offers!!) "

I suppose it's so easy for a company to slap a price on double of what it's worth, then slap a load more stickers on it saying HALF PRICE!! LOOK AT ME!!!
