- Good Value for Money Laptop?
As is the way of things, in the middle of trying to do uni work (if someone could point out why it was a good idea to start studying again, that’d be great) my computer seems to be slowly dying. If I dare to have excel, word and chrome open at the same time, it struggles to even play music (I can’t use Itunes as this eats up all available power and cooks the processor). Even with just Chrome open it cant really do things like watch RedBull TV, and can slow down quite dramatically just in normal use.
It’s 5 years old now, so had a fair enough innings I suppose. Can anyone recommend a replacement for the sort of use outlined above? Battery life isn’t crucial as it’s generally used in the house or library. Doesn’t have to have a particularly large screen, and I’ll be installing Office 2010
On the other hand, the reliability (it’s a Dell btw) has been outstanding, so is it every worth trying some kind of service to get things up to speed again?Posted 4 years agostumpy01Member
I got my Acer from Acer direct for a good price and the service was excellent.
Have had it for 2.5 yrs now and it’s still going fine….
I went for a 17″ laptop and the chassis isn’t exactly rigid so I wouldn’t trust it if it was being lugged around all the time. But for what I use it for, it’s fine.
My parents had an Acer laptop die after about 4 years of light use, but apparently this was down to a known problem with AMD motherboards, so hopefully I won’t see the same issue!
Do you have a local independent computer shop?Posted 4 years ago
There’s a little shop in Peterborough that does re-conditioned laptops and they have some really good deals on. Might be somewhere similar near you?
