Special Offers – Week of December 29th

December 29, 2009

Good afternoon all, hopefully Christmas was as kind to you as possible, but if it wasn’t there’s always some consolation to be had from the fact that it’s all over now. Anyway, before we get to the “happy new year” potion of the post (that’ll be at the end) we always do a post at the start of the week to detail some of our special offers.

This week, we have a solid notebook, a Wireless N router and a 1TB media player on sale. We’ll roll with the notebook first.

Acer Aspire 7730G-664G100MN:

Acer’s Aspire 7730G-664G100MN may have a model name that reads like a license plate, but aside from making its name a little hard to keep in your head that shouldn’t discourage you.

We’ll get down to brass tacks as quickly as possible. The Aspire boasts a 17” display with a resolution of 1440 x 900, an Intel Core 2 Duo processor clocked at 2.2GHz and 4GB of memory. Moreover, it boasts 1TB of internal storage, though not on one drive. Instead, it’s spread across two 500GB drives, which means you’re at lower risk of both failing. It might seem like a small thing, but it can be a godsend if you end up in a position to need it. It’s also got a GeForce 9600M-GT.

The machine does come with Windows Vista Home Premium, which means you’d be best off purchasing an upgrade copy of Windows 7 to set up on the machine when you get it, if Windows Vista is a deal-breaker.

The Acer Aspire weighs in at €695, which isn’t a bad old deal at all.



Product Spotlight – Acer Aspire 7715Z

October 22, 2009

Good afternoon all, much as the weather’s been atrocious we hope that everything else has been going at least a bit better this week. At least there’s some comfort in the fact that the day is nearly over. For those of you who don’t read as often, we run a Product Spotlight post towards the end of the week to get the word out about a product we think is a good deal or worthy of a recommendation.

This week’s spotlit product is Acer’s Aspire 7715Z-434G50MN… admittedly it’s a bit of a mouthful, but it’s also a pretty slick machine, so try not to let the license plate of a name get in the way.

The Aspire is a 17.3” notebook with a 2.1GHz Intel processor and 4GB of RAM, which should see you safely through any number-crunching you encounter. It also boasts a 500GB hard drive and a DVD-RW drive. Combine the large hard drive with the large screen size and you start to see fairly quickly that the Aspire stacks up very well as an around-the-house media machine.
