I'm using a new Aspire S3, well, sort of!
3 mths after booting up for the first time, I got the bluse screen of death. I hadn't even finished transfering important data from my old Mac, let alone completed a backup. Little did I realise that the machine came with no physical restore media. I hadn't though of that yet with the machine being so new.
Acer asked me to send it back to wipe clean and reset to factory setting but I needed to save data first, requiring me to access the HD by installing a different version of Win8 from a USB stick.
I'm now looking to get the machine back to factory and start afresh. I find it difficult to swallow that I have to pay for media within such a short time but what I cannot swallow is the price difference between thw US and the UK:
$19.99 vs £51.06.... nearly 4 x the price.
Can anyone offer a valid reason for the difference?
