Acer Ferrari 4005 WLMi

Posted 02-17-2009 at 03:15 AM by gulliver_xc

My Acer Ferrari laptop was purchased 23rd March 2006 through the on-line suppliers and it blew up the day it arrived! The power supply just fizzled and then would not recharge the battery pack. When I contacted ebuyer I was told to return it to the manufacturer, which I did. It was repaired under warranty and returned to me in around a month so I had no use of it for that time.
