will just get a nice Acer one
stay away from Acer; they are okay priced, but the build quality isnt upto much, and as for the aftersales care, even when you have an insurance plan with them, they are utter shite!
I lost my laptop for 10 weeks because when it went in for a HDD replacement, they decided to change the DVDRW at the same time but couldnt source a new DVDRW...
They kept putting refurbished HDD's in it, which kept breaking/having problems. I couldnt trust putting my data on them it so now I am running my own bought one instead.
Takes 30 minutes+ to get through to them everytime, unless you ring as soon as it hits 9am, and then they are not the most helpful company in the world.
All in all, with the likes of HP's at the same price, stay well away from Acer. If you get an Acer which never develops a problem, you will be fine, but its a big risk to take for a measly saving.
I will never buy them again!
