    Tough one... I have Acer Aspire 5520 here and I'm 95% sure that this is my first and last Acer.

    But that "Extra Value" sounds also bad.

    It all depends what you want to do with it?
    The Extra value gets good reviews from Ebuyer customers..

    Good choice, I know someone with that exact laptop. He paid nearly $200 more for it when he bought it. He says it's a very decent laptop, maybe not tops for games but good otherwise.

    After more than 1300 posts you should know that this stuff doesn't belong into the pub, Sparx. :nerd:

    I´d also take the more known brand, as never heard the second one.
    Tho, got ferrari 3400, and when i bought it, it blew 2 hard drives, one per 9 months, first hdd went for warranty, but getting that replaced.... Took 1 month, great service... Second one, needed to replace it myself, and its been working for few years.

    So I got the Acer, came this morning.. :) All working great, other than the CD/DVD drive - the laser ribbon cable is completely ripped meaning it does not read/write any CDs/DVDs or recognise them at all.

    RMA time.. Love the laptop though! Just a shame I have to RMA it.. ;)
