Is this the standard 1 year or three years though?
They both come with a standard 1 year warranty, however for the same price, both warranties can be extended to 3 years.
Get the three year - with a laptop, self-repair isn't so easy...
That's what I was going for.
PS - Why wouldn't you choose the acer?? Any particular reason??
Acer have done naughty things in the past - for one, loading all their laptops with rootkits meaning they can spy on their uses at any time they feel like it if they choose to. Don't know if they still do it, but that was pretty bad. I used to tell anyone with an Acer laptop to reformat it as soon as they got it.
Isn't that illegal
Is there any way to check for and remove the rootkit, in case I buy an acer, so I don't have to format???
Quite possibly, as I say, I don't know if they still do it, but as a rule I just avoid them altogether.
Is there any way to check for a rootkit once I've bought it??
Full scans with ESET Personal Security and Lavasoft Ad-Aware should do the trick I think.
I'll update when I go to do a final inspection at the shop tomorrow
PS - Which mouse would you recommend to to with a laptop for gaming ( not too expensive)???
Anything Razer... I think the Krait is quite cheap.
Razer mice are rare here and waaaay above affordable prices. Microsoft and logitech ones however are widely available.
I have an MS wireless optical mouse 2.0 I like but the receiver is too big to use with a laptop.
Any other suggestions
MS Intellimouse Optical.
Cool I'll check it out when I go tommorow
I'll update once I'm back from the store, hitting the hay now zzzzzzzzzzz
Yeah I ought to soon as well...
Just got back from the store, and GPU-Z couldn't tell me what type of memory the acer had, the memory type category was just blank, even though everything else was there.
The acer had higher clocks than the HP (using GPU-Z) does this mean it is GDDR3???
PS-How good do you think this mouse will be??
EDIT - Sorry double post by accident (DIAL UP )
Logitech stuff is usually pretty solid. Personally I don't like the shape of their later mice at all, but clearly that's personal preference.
I actually like the shape of this mouse, and I'm rightie so it fits well. I was thinking of this because its not too small like many notebook mice, which makes them difficult to game with.
Agreed, I strongly dislike small mice.
