Customer Questions and Answers

20/03/2009 Siobhan: Would this laptop be able to support a piece of software which requires the following -
Pentium II 400 or greater
128 MB RAM
400 MB free disk space

SteveF: Yes, it more than matches all those requirements.


SteveF: It comes with the basic software and yes you can download video and burn it to dvd.

11/03/2009 R.C.: i want to buy this would it be able to hold programs such as sony vegas 8,virtual dj etc?

David J: No, this machine is designed for low level usage such as Office and Internet broswsing

22/02/2009 Jims: Hi, would i be able to use this laptop with my Brother MFC 5840cn printer/scanner/fax, as i was told that Vista will not always work with older products. I also use a Belkin wireless G router and someone told me that this may not work with Vista either, is this correct? Thanks.

SteveF: You'll need to check with Brother on the printer issue as I don't have the info on that unfortunately. The laptop does support g band wireless though so will work fine with the wireless router.

13/02/2009 Grimmjow: can it play high definition videos like H264, etc?

David J: Yes, these should play fine

04/02/2009 L: Hi, Would the Sims 2 run on this laptop?

SteveF: It would struggle. I'd look for something a little more powerful if you want to play games on the laptop.

30/01/2009 Adam: Hi I have been advising some one to buy this note book after they ended up with a rubbish one that has now been sent back. (not an acer) But am I right in thinking that most note books use the same 200 pin SD ram? As we upgraded the last one to 2 gig and is good quality ram? Thanks in advance

SteveF: There are three types of ram about at the moment. DDR, DDR2 and DDR3 and each has different speeds. You would need to know what type of ram you've got for the other laptop and check it against this one which is running ddr2 ram.

22/01/2009 Grandma: Can you play "Who wants to be a millionaire" on this machine?

David J: yes this should be fine for that game

21/01/2009 danielt=]: is this a refurbished laptop? and would i be able to put many games on it?

david s: No, and as it is a entry level system I wouldn't recommend this for gaming

16/01/2009 Alan B: Can you use a printer with this machine and if so do you connect it via the USB port?

dave: Yes you can use with a printer. You can connect via usb or wireless if you have a wireless printer

07/12/2008 lemmy: Can this laptop hold software like adobe photoshop

Matt: Yes.

07/12/2008 tasha: does this laptop have a build in webcam?

Matt: No.

05/12/2008 chris: Can I buy this now and have the product support start from the 25th dec as it will be a christmas gift.

Matt: It starts from the date of purchase unfortunately, and the warranty is held with the manufacturer rather than ourselves so there is nothing we can do to change that.

05/12/2008 Nik: I am interested in this product but I have been advised by a high street electrical retailer, that in order for vista to run efficeintly that you need 2GB of RAM. Will this laptop run ok with just 1GB RAM?

SteveF: It will run OK with standard tasks such as browsing the internet, using word etc as you can turn the unnecessary parts of Vista off so its less RAM hungry. But if you are planning to use it for anything demanding we would recommend at least 2GB of RAM. Please give our sales team a call for upgrade prices.

04/12/2008 Acer eMachine E520: will this computer be able o play new modern games easily or will it strugal

David J: This machine is not designed for gaming as it only has a shared graphics card
