Hmm.. damn this thing is one interesting product. I was considering the Acer Ferrari 3200 but my friend was pretty much telling me to go look for something else. Anyone worried about the support with this thing?
One thing I do want to know is quality wise.. anyone ever got a lemon or worse when they got this laptop?? I've heard people running into problems with the Ferrari 3200. Obviously its not perfect. Plus damned expensive. One thing that Acer has going for it is that the people I called had no problems with my questions and answered them right out. No hesitation No waits. Entertained my nutty idiot stuff. Even said they're ok with swapping out the HD with the newer seagate momentus 100GB 5400rpm. With extra cost.
Not to mention they got great repair facilities here and a company presence in my country. They even got a damned factory somewhere which can fix anything short of dumping it in the ocean.
The Joybook 7000 is good. And to hear it got a good review in CNet in terms of LCD quality is a nice thing to hear. This looks very good and the price I got from it is encouraging. Not to mention light as hell.... So can someone post issues in this one. Plus Im planning on installing other OS like Linux or even Unix on this thing. Wanna start learning other OSes...
I'm requesting Acer for a demo of their Ferrari 3200 -- dang thing looks too cool not to mention a probable thief-magnet. I'll try to see what many have complained about with its LCD.
Plus going to try to convince the other shop to let me test this damned Joybook 7000..... sheesh. One bad thing for the Benq.
Better support is always a must.
Give me your ideas. I've been running around a year trying to check for nice laptops. General Usage plus a good graphics card that can play any game right now as well as those that will come out in 2 yrs. And the ability to install other OSes would be a great plus.
Most of our models seems to revolve around Acer, Asus, Neo, Twinhead, Toshiba, Fujitsu, MSI, Samsung, Compaq, Sony, HP, and IBMs.
Tons of models to choose from but limited in terms of what graphic card they carry. Want at least a Radeon 9700.
One more question would be how good is the Joybook 7000s battery life and how well its 64mb Radeon 9700 compares to a 128mb one?
