(Canada Help!)This laptop a good deal?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Greets folks,

I am helping my GF's family shop for a laptop. They live in Quebec in Canada and needless to say their prices up there are not what they are here in the states. I found what I would consider to be a pretty good deal from NCIX, and I wanted some opinions on it. They are getting it for moderate gaming and basically a desktop replacement for travel.

http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=58435

This deal circumvents the Quebec taxes, only paying the 5% Canadian tax, and totals out at $850 shipped. That seems like a pretty monster deal for the Canadian (especially Quebec) market, but I was interested in some opinions.

Thanks!

that isn't a bad deal. I mean there are better ones I have seen in the states, but for canadian, that is damn good. has good hardware. I personally don't like acer. but should work just fine.

Was thinking the same..would like to purchase it here in the States instead but it doesn't look like an option right now :/ And I do prefer ASUS to Acer but..I guess you have to take what you can get when the deals are ripe.

Its because they are a reseller, they affiliate with oems and just sell those products. Like the sager 5160, its built to order in the sager production facility and then shipped out to you, reflexnotebooks is just a middle man, but they dont take much profit. I might be able to find a few other sager resellers in canada if your skeptical about that site.

That seems like A good deal, but if you can you should try to go for an asus instead.

Only problem with that is RAM is not dual channel, this may severely & negatively impact performance
But a simple 4GB DDR3 SODIMM addition would solve that for identical DIMMs
