Toshiba vs Acer

Any thoughts on Toshiba vs Acer laptops - in the lower price range (around £450 - 600)?

Personally, I do not have a favorite for either or. I have worked with both and would find the two to be on an even par.

The acer wins overall. Better value. Better Service. And boy, the screen (crystalbrite) looks AMAZING!

Own one of each, 1yr old toshiba and 1 mth old acer. Both great laptops, both good screens . Acer are slightly cheaper. Not had to use either of the technical support, so cannot comment on that. The Acer i have is now on special at click here absolute bargain for the spec (i paid more).

I bought two Acer products, both went wrong, support was useless, I have never used them again, although I must admit I was tempted to buy a system from them as it looked good value for money, spoke to my son who works in IT, they tried a Acer system on a trial basis, they binned it, he told me my first thoughts about Acer were true, "keep away from them"

Forgot to say I have a Toshiba laptop, I don't know what their support is like, I have never had a problem with it.

For me, Toshiba wins out on all out quality, Acer come a very close second with out and out versatility. Tosh's tend to be built better whilst Acer's tend to have more features or the 'more for your money, effect'
