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

My System Specs


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.

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.
