Default Acer warranty

I have an acer netbook and I must say they definatly stand by there warranty. My battery started ot lasting about 6.5 hour after afew months it was only good for 5.5 so I phone Acer support and within 4 days I had A new Samsung 6 cell that is lasting 7 hrs. A company that stands behind there warranty without hesitation goes along with me

Thanks guys. The person I was looking for found a $500 Toshiba at BB. I think the specs (if I remember) were 15.4", Turion cpu, 2GB, 250GB, Ati x1200, wireless B.

Tried to convince him to get a faster Acer they had there for about $700 but he says this is good enough for him.

I know the point is rather moot now but I've been using my Aspire 8930G since October of last year with absolutely no issues at all.

Acer's laptop's, like their monitors, seem to be pretty junky. Cheap plastic, poor component selection and low build quality. I avoid anythign Acer like the plague.
