The Acer Aspire 5349-B816G50 laptop is a rather attractive piece of kit that is currently on sale at electrical-deals on eBay for a mere £199.99 including delivery and 200 Nectar points. This is a refurbished model but one that comes with a full 12-months warranty.
Like the overwhelming majority of laptops available at this price (or close to it), it comes with a 15.6in display with a 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution. Other features include 6GB of RAM, a dual-core Intel Celeron B815 CPU clocked at 1.6GHz, a 500GB hard disk drive, a dedicated numeric keypad, an integrated Intel graphics sub-system, Windows 7 Home Premium, a card reader, Wi-Fi, a DVD writer, three USB ports, VGA, HDMI and a webcam.
Acer would have been able to shave a few dollars/pounds off the bill of material had it decided to go for a smaller, more compact laptop. We still firmly believe that the middle ground likes somewhere between traditional laptops and small but ultimately too cramped Netbooks.
