    Hi,

    This laptop here: Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG

    Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG NX.RYKEK.007

    I think it looks great, but before I go ahead and get it, are there any other laptops with better specs for the same price.

    All help is appreciated.

    Price: ~£640

    Thanks

    It's decent but you are paying extra for the low power ultra book CPU and the laptop does not even look that slim, i saw this one on the front page Acer Aspire 5755G LX.RV402.018 the CPU is much better but the graphics are a lower spec, although it costs less. There are loads to choose from on that site I would look for one with a normal CPU that doesn't end in UM if you want more power. I saw a few on there. But the 640M does look to be a good graphics card to get

    Hmmm. From what I know it's the gpu that is the bottleneck so having the latest gpu for what I think is a reasonable price is a good compromise? Unless there is a better equivalent?
