This is the web Diary and I will blog whenever I feel good to blog. I don't know how blogs were classified .. this is just a Personal Diary or my own views upon things happening around me. Most of the Posts in this blog are written in Myanmar (Burma) Native Language, known as Burmese/Myanmarsar (Not Myanmese or Barmen). This blog is composed with Winkalaw Font. I recommend you to get the Winkalaw 3 (modified) from the link below.

Among the Laptop & Notebooks around me ACER & DELL have the best Price / Performance ratio ( exception for DELL ... 10 to 14 days delivery time and only online payment and weight like a cement block .. damn that was heavy )
Apart from that Heavy Weight DELL .. Yes ACER has the best Price / Performance ratio.
Same price 1300 with a bit different specs. DELL Insprion 6400 Vs Acer Aspire 5613ZWLMi ( nearly same price 1250~1300 )
I prefer DELL but if you are a girls and planning to carry around your laptop... you should choose Acer.
For me 12" screen was very tiny. 14.x" screens are acceptable and 15.4" is my favorite.

I'm using 19" widescreen LCD for my desktop but I dun need 17"/19"/21" or any wide screen for the laptop. Without this 15.4" Screen I will still hate these laptop/notebook.

Again to the DELL, yes it was in S$ 1298 ( let's say 1300 ).

Differences Between them

You can compare the hardware specification and also I found out more ... like this.



Dell include Installation CDs, OS Installer, Driver CD, Manual and some other software like MS Work 8.5 ( useless but free ) but ACER will give you nothing but a small sheet of paper.

Both comes with Notebook Bag but DELL's bag is a lot nicer and bigger than ACER, since DELL was a lot heavier than ACER .. lolz.

And DELL has bigger builtin speaker which sound more nicer than ACER but you can buy an ACER on the spot ( if stock is available )

You need to pay online and wait for a couple of weeks to get your laptop with a huge box ( usually made in china labeled plastic bags ) .. they put everything in that box including the laptop bag ( quite big one ).


If you don't like to carry smaller/lighter notebook you should think about ACER and If you are not enough power crazy guy like me who willing to carry that brick like heavy DELL .. take my advice .. don't go for DELL.



Why I can say this much about them ?

I'm using DELL INSPIRON 6400 and my brother using ACER Aspire 5613ZWLMi.
