I am more than a month that I am observing your beast 1712/1714.
I am waiting the italian importation of Acer to buy your treasure, but Acer Italy say nothing about it yet ....
I am thinking to replace the 120GB hd with a much more beautiful Hitachi 400GB (that I have discover only in these days, before it I was in love with WD 250GB) that is ATA 100 and so usable in the 1712/1714.
And maybe 2GB 400Mhz instead one ....
But, no talking about me, can I know your personal opinions/reviews/problems/free words/images/photos/... about your monsters ??
Only Adam posted some photos about it, all of you nothing.
Please, if you have the hardware, give to us forced waiting person some pictures to dream on our future purchase.
And I like very much to read all your sincerely description about quality, performance, display, sound, interfaces, all about the 1712.
Please is there someone that want write a very big review on your super-machine described in all of the details possible ??
Thanks a lot, I hope to be in your elite as soon as possible, bastard Acer Italy my patience will win !!!
