    Dear all,

    Hi I have been keeping my eye on the Aspire 3623NWXCi. I've search the net for no luck about the technical specification of its memory and build quality.

    Can anybody please share to us (, and me) whether it uses the 200 pin DDR2 lappy memory or 240 pin DDR2 lappy memory....

    Is it PC3200 or faster?

    I really appreciate any replies, thanks,
    Monkey

    Did you read the specs you provided? DDR2 is 240 pin. it's either PC2-4200 (533MHz) or PC2-5300 (667MHz)

    The 3623 is not really good value if the price is $730(is that in USD?). There might be better choices depending on the region where you live. Also, I believe the "N" desgination in Acer systems, means that the system will not ship with Win XP, but will include a Linux based OS, so if you are not really comfortable using Linux, then it would be a good idea to look for a different laptop or be prepared to buy a copy of Win XP. Reliability wise Acer is pretty good, but since it is a budget laptop, it will have its shortcommings and dont expect it to be top of the line quality.

    Also it uses 200 pin DDR2 SODIMM. The 240 pin DDR2 memory are all used for desktops.

    EDIT: If you are in the US, then Tigerdirect is selling the same laptop(the same specs atleast) for $399, including Win Xp Home...

    To K3LO,
    I am not very well informed about how many PIN are in the DDR2 memory type. But I do know that DDRI uses the 200 pin memory for lappy. Still, a thank you to K3LO.

    To Miner,
    Tx you very much, dude, for telling me that the DDR2 only use the 200 pin memory. I guess laptop memory uses 200 pin both for DDR2 and DDR1. Nice conclusion.

    Hmm, Miner, I'm not in the US. So the price I mention - Yes, it's in US $ - are relatively cheap according to us compare to the brand new lappy which are sold for over $1000. Those good lappy that you can get in the US for $700-800 are sold much higher over here. That's suck....

    Miner, if I 'may' compare the specification of Aspire 3623NWXCi with the older HP Compaq EVO N600c in term of reliability, $$$, and processing power. What would you recommend?....

    HP Compaq EVO N600c US$ 540
    Intel Mobile Pentium 3 - 1200Mhz Speedstep ( 512Kb Cache ) , 256MB DDR , HDD 30GB , 14,1" tft Super XGA 1400x1050 , Graphics ATI Radeon 7500 with 32MB Non Share Memory , Internal CDROM Drive, Mouse Double : Stick Pointer & Touchpad , Modem 56k , LAN 100Mbps , TV Out Port , 2 X USB Port (ver.1) , Serial Port , RGB Port , Parallel Port , 2 X PCMCIA CardBus 32bit, InfraRed Port , Battery Lithium Ion, and Adaptor Charger.


    Correction for the Aspire 3623NWXCi. It is sold for $649
    The spec:
    Intel Celeron M 370 - 1500MHz ( 1MB Cache , FSB 400MHz ) , 512MB DDR2 (NOT SPECIFIED whether it is the PC2 3200, PC2 4200, or PC2 5300),
    HDD 40GB , 14,1" tft XGA Wide XGA (1280*800), DVD-CDRW COMBO Drive Internal , Mouse : Touchpad , Modem 56k , LAN 100Mbps , 1 X PCMCIA CardBus 32bit , 3 X USB Port Ver 2.0 , RGB Port , Wireless LAN 802.11BG 54Mbps , Battery Lithium Ion , Adaptor Charger , Bag



    Please advice me...
    Tx you so much,
    monkey

    Riverside,

    Hey buddy, thank you so much for this info. I search your postings, it seems your 3624WXMi has the DDR2 PC4200 not PC3200. Am I right?
    Here again I copy the spec from your own posting. (Check below)

    My question is Do you think the Celeron M, is much much capable to perform its job? Is it true that Celeron M 380 or 370 is the newer generation of Mobile Pentium or Centrino???

    May I ask you, how do you feel about your 14" screen 1280*800. I'm opting to get the high-res because I do lots of text and graphics.

    Again, tx u so much for this input,
    Monkey

    PS: Any complain yet, so far about the heat and dead pixel?
