You can't be serious. The Lenovo I had, now that was junk, the acer on the other hand had only scratches on it.
Try to hold down your fanboism first and then we'll talk again.
I know lots of people who had/have Acers, theres nothing wrong with them except minor cosmetical flaws.
And that couple of years makes you Mr. Know it all? Grow up.
EVERYTHING that is in mass-production will have flaws, the same goes for Acer, I'm not saying they are all good but calling something that last for 6 years junk and calling something that didn't last a month (which most lenovo series don't) not junk, yeah, fanboism in the highest crade.
Damn this forum is full of people that think they know everything about everything.
LOL - I dont even know where to begin. So Let me get this straight - because you and your friends went out and pinched pennies, but it still opens a program after 6 years - that means all Acer products are good ? 6 years is not the norm, trust me on that.
Obviously I need to spell this out for you -
Whats more conclusive ? Someone who owned 1 of something, or someone who dealt with thousands of em ?
Does that mean I know everything ? Nope, but I know enough to make an informed statement as to the overall products of that company.
Why do you think they are so cheap ? You think its because they like you ? Its because they dont spend $$ on R&D, Customer Service, buy inferior parts - its business 101. They are a huge company that is known for cheap crap, plain and simple. This is not an opinion to be argued, its fact.
I understand your feelings are hurt because I said Acer is junk - but I am not the only one who thinks so. its pretty much a widely considered fact. Same as the notion of ThinkPad T-series being the standard of reliability & quality. One reason why they practically start
@ $1000. (Oh BTW - ThinkPads have 30% lower warranty repair rate than any
I dont claim to know everything, but I do know a little about this stuff - and I know people who base their opinions of an entire company or brand overall solely on 1 or 2 computers dont really have a clue, literally.
A quick google will confirm everything I have said, Im sure several of the people who regularly post in HH will agree with me as well. No reason to get mad, just save up more money next time - because you probably wont be as lucky.
No product has 100% failure rate, and no product range is without issues, but there are brands/companies in every market who are known for being superior and, of course, some being junk.
One thing you can be happy about - I think Acer has a better warranty repair rating than Compaq
Thats a postive !
