The Acer Aspire 3660

THE ACER ASPIRE 3660 IS THE SHITTEST COMPUTER THAT HAS EVER BEEN MADE.

I will continue to pepper this throughout my blog.

Hopefully people will put "Acer Aspire" or "Acer" or "Acer Aspire 3660" or "Are Acer's any good?" or "Acer Aspire review" or "Acer's are SHIT" into google and get this web page.

If you are considering buying one, especially a refurbished one from Morgan DO NOT.

REPEAT.

DO NOT BUY A REFURBISHED ACER ASPIRE 3660 FROM MORGAN.

I have written a good blog about Mick and Elly and I and The Wombats but I wanted to upload some footage of them singing and dancing before I blogged it.

This morning I took Elly swimming via Maplin to buy an PCMIA IEEE1394 card so that I could plug my camera in. It took me forty five minutes of not cooking Elly's lunch to realise (NO BLOGGER REALISE IS NOT SPELT REALIZE YOU STUPID TOSSER) that I should give up and not try to get the card to work any more.

Every 2 seconds when I try to install something it says "Cannot find driver. You need your WINDOWS XP MEDIA EDITION DISK 2 DISC"

That'd be fine, well, it'd be fine if you liked spending an inordinate amount of your life locating cds and putting them into the computer every time you wanted to "plug and play" so actually NOT FUCKING FINE AT ALL but when I tried to make my Windows XP Media Edition discs this ACER ASPIRE 3660 that I brought REFURBISHED FROM MORGAN ELECTRONICS had a heart attack and died and then came back to life never to let me make the discs so I've always had to add .sys files individually, one by one, downloading them off the internet.

I also got involved in a $20.00 scam from these fuckers, who take your money then say "WE WILL EMAIL YOU THE DRIVER IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS."

What? I thought it would be an immediate access to your library? OH NO APPARENTLY NOT, APPARENTLY THAT'S IT, $20 FOR ONE LOUSY NON EXISTENT DRIVER.

I drove BACK to Maplin to get my money back then went to PC world to get a Belkin card.

This worked - I only had to download 4 .sys files to get it going.

Then I plugged my video camera in and it went mental. I had to find and add at least 20 .sys files by hand, after which it said "Cannot recognise (NO BLOGGER, RECOGNISE IS NOT SPELT RECOGNIZE YOU STUPID TOSSER AGAIN) your A/V device."

Today it has been a great big windy day. The kites are in the hall.

The kids, however, are sitting in front of the other computer playing on the "LEARN TO WATCH TV" website while I've been trying to get the camera to work for the last four fucking hours.

I just shouted "Who wants to go fly a kite?" and the only repsonse was Polly saying "What time is it David? What are we doing about dinner, Do you know what, I think it might be, how much are you gunning for it?"

"Not much,"

"Right, well..."

FUCK EVERYTHING. INCLUDING DRAWING STUPID FUCKING SCRIBBLES ON POST IT NOTES AND THEN HAVING TO RESTART THIS STUPID FUCKING COMPUTER AND THEN SCAN ALL THE STUPID FUCKING SCRIBBLES INTO A FOLDER AND THEN EDITING WITH THEM ON PHOTOSHOP AND THEN UPLOADING AND LINKING THEM ACROSS TO THIS BLOG THAT NO-ONE EVER READS.

I am nearly crying.

So, if you are considering buying a refurbished Acer Aspire 3660 and you like crying, you are making the right choice.

PRAT

@ anonymous:

I am definitely a prat. Look at my prattish blog. What a prat.

You, on the other hand, show dignity and class with your brave anonymous insult.

Well done.

I seriously hope I've cost those tossers some sales.

BTW, I was at your gig last night. Which I enjoyed.

Cheers,

@ Simon

Me too. Probably not though. I had a blog about an advert that I withdrew when a certain massive travel company started hitting my blog five times a day. I guess I'm just a coward.

Thanks for saying you enjoyed the gig. I did too.

Finally, may I request that if, in the future, you comment again on my blog you would kindly follow the convention of slamming me anonymously with a late 80's insult in capital letters.

Thanks again.

BENDER!

Simon Brunning said...

That OK?

David Trent said...

Simon, I'm very sorry, but I'm reeling from someone before you having called me a BENDER.

It is very hurtful for me because I have a very bad back and therefore lack flexibility.

Because of my intense distress I can't really reply to your comment of "That OK?" at the moment, I'm just going to gently mop at my eyes with a tissue woven from the silk of a happy worm.

Thankyou.

Did you mean sincerely

Forgive me if "sincerly" is a new word that I don't know.

I'm afraid I am, as you observed, a moron.

Acer machine has an outstanding feature that it can perform better even after it is refurbished.

What(fucking)ever...just spent some time on this shitty blog as fucking gooooogle sent me over while searching for CPU upgrade for aspire 3660.
Your blog is so fucking pointless it makes me feel loosing another couple of minutes typing this fucked up comment.
You from Stoke-on-Trent or you`re just fucking bent?

David Trent said...

A brave, anonymous comment.

You are correct. In everything you say. I hope one day that your life improves. I am so sorry.

Simon Brunning said...

Quite right. In future, David, please don't mention any piece of electronic equipment without including a range of technical support advice.

By the same logic, you also shouldn't mention any celebrities without including a gallery of photographs of them disrobed. Many of the morons who manage to knuckle-drag their way to your site by way of Google will be expecting no less.
