Acer Aspire 5550
Acer Aspire 5550
This notebook is quite usable with eCS 2.0 beta 3.
The Acer Aspire 5550 is one of those cheap 14" 16/10 Notebooks
floating around at your local discounter (namely Saturn/Germany).
They sell for about 700 Euros.
Windows users don't like that thingy because it comes preloaded with
so much software that you are best off wiping the disk and starting
from scratch. Actually half of the 60GB disk is filled with crap.
Additionally it has major timing issues when used for playing
DirectX-Games. Many of those notebooks are returned to the stores
by frustrated Windows users so you might happen to get a barely
used device for about 500 Euros.
However, this cannot scare eCS users: It performs fine playing movies
and any other stuff i could throw at it.
My specimen (the low-end configuration) features an Intel Cenrino processor,
Intel 945GM graphics adapter (Supported by SNAP) as well as Intel High
Definition Audio (ICH7, supported by Uniaud). The WiFi adapter was not
tested but was detected ok, wired net is ok (Realtek). ACPI loads and
appears to work.
Note that the hardware varies quite a lot so if you play with the
thought of buying one: Read the description first.
