    I ordered my Processor, GPU and DVD drive from them, good customer service and prompt delivery, I'd say go for it.

    Definitely never coming here on holiday EVER again, too hot, full of people who would prefer to look like someone from Iraq while getting skin cancer, it's everything I detest about british holiday makers all rolled into one.

    I'll just watch it next wednesday, I REALLY can't be arsed with anything other than stuff just working right now due to sleep deprivation (yes, I am staying in a five star hotel but that apparently is less compatible with sleep than being under a plastic sheet when it's p*ssing it down back in Britain).

    I hate it. It's heavy, has a battery life of 30 minutes maximum after a year of use, keyboard has a slight curve on it which REALLY puts me off while typing (that's a personal thing but it still drove me nuts), customer service is AWFUL.
    Simple description of what happened:
    Dad plugs in the printer's power adapter frying the PSU (don't ask how)
    Laptop returns with a supposedly replaced motherboard that has a malfunctioning sound card (won't recognise ANY external sound hardware), after 3 weeks develops an issue where it will boot only half of the time.
    Goes back to Acer again, they wipe the hard drive and reinstall the crapware, first thing it does is say the hard drive is not found, straight back (this happened two further times)
    Eventually they replace the mobo again, same sound issue but no issue with the hard disk.
    Something in the laptop overheats causing an instant shutdown, this will even happen when idling on the desktop with a laptop cooling stand in use.
    In short: Never buying Acer ever again.

    Just learned there was an air rifle range behind my house run by a family member :wtf: Anyways up there for hours shooting. Going back again this week, also my little bro's gf is a crazy good shot. Her first time shooting she broke the records for the highest score on targets at 20 metre.

    Sorry to hear about your laptop problems - thats what I have never really recommended their laptops. but some people do seem to pick up great laptops from Acer that actually work. even those are few & far between. I would have avoided Acer all together.

    310mm at 100m is my grouping (cadet so we use a toned down version of the SA80). Air rifles I'm not brilliant with.

    Acer and Emachines are horrible brands and pc makers!

    the service and build quality is questionable

    thing i hate about laptops is that you have to spend a lot to get a good one, get a brand you know has good service

    air cadets the navy and army ones are all like cool versions of scouts you get to do cool military stuff but its not that cool really i dont know the fascination with combat and shooting guns they are defo not toys

    my mate has joined the merchant navy, sweet job goes to egypt and places gets weeks off and gets paid amazing wages, its all coz he was in the cadets, je gets paid to go to and learn some navagation and other stuff at i think its uni

    we used to think it was gay as fuck in high school like sailor gay, so we used to take the piss out my mate martin

    people used to go to just meet mates, i gave up all that after i went to cub scouts it just wasnt fun anymore it seemed like a kids thing to me

    Why'd you want an A1? We've just got rid of L98A1s and you wouldn't believe the difference going from single shot to semi-auto makes in terms of shooting. Tell me your grouping when you've had a go, we need some friendly competition (Mine are always with iron sights unless it's a DCCT).
    For those that don't know a DCCT is like a more realistic and more fun version of time crisis using the British Army's weapons.
    Wait a sec, you're joining the navy in like 8 days aren't you? Good luck with all the training.
