My dad and I are looking for a new computer (again) and we've found 2 identical specced pc's. the Packard Bell iMedia i5701 and the acer aspire x3950. They both cost the same, they both are identical in specs, the only difference is the size and the brand. Now I've heard some pretty bad stuff about Packard Bell, and the one we used to own blew up and would randomly shut down. The stuff I heard was, that PB uses refurbished motherboards, which causes very fast failure and expensive repairs. Also that the keyboard and mouse plugs differ a bit from normal pc's, so they can only be used on PB's. And on top of that, I've heard the most fantastic things about acer. So which should we go for? And have you got any horror story's about either brand?
