Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My Mr's wants me to get a laptop so she can have more room in the the living room. All I will use it for is browsing the net ( arrse, face book and porn in that order ) buying stuff eBay, itunes and the occasional office work (word and that ) any recommendations ?
  2. I'd have a word with your missus and point her in the direction of the kitchen.

  7. Most of the Taiwanese companies are going to be launching tablets in the summer, so if I were you I'd keep my eyes peeled for a bargain as they'll probably look to dispose of their netbook inventories beforehand. My last two have been Acers and I can't fault them. You get a lot of bang for your buck.
  8. You quite sure about that? At least you can punch info into an android and some of it'll stick. Plus you could program it to stay within bounds................
  9. Looks good
  10. Do you mean the one for the tablet? I'd imagine that would be spot on for the browsing, itunes and so on, but might fall short for (even light) office work. The mrs has an ipad* and trying to edit documents on it is a pain in the arrse frankly. Personally I'm a big fan of android stuff, I use an HTC Desire with it, but I'm not so sure iot would fit the bill for thecoops. A netbook might be better, although the keyboards are a bit small if you've got sausage fingers. Well inside the budget too

    * Which she loves, great for catching up on news and so forth.
  11. Its a laptop I want not a tablet or a netbook.
  12. Fussy ****
  13. I used an acer netbook for a while too and was very happy with it. I wouldn't count them out, nip down to your local PC World or whatever and give one a try

    Just so happens I will be selling a second-hand acer soon as well, if you're interested :)
  14. Thanks for the offer but I would like a new one just in case you havn't wiped all your kiddy porn off. If i nicked for it I'd rather be nicked for my own pic's of maddy getting hooped by a kangeroo
