I think it looks pretty good tbh, cant complain when you want something fast on a budget though.

Also if anyone decides to say 'Acer's are shite' Ive had my boggo standard Acer for going on 3 years now and it hasnt put a foot wrong, not had to format it in all that time and never runs slow, apart from when its held back by its own performance

They're well outside your previous budget unless you buy the used one.
