Recommended Posts

there's also the storage space which is listed as 120gb ssd and 2tb hdd in the video but ony 2tb hdd on the description

I believe the explanation to that is:

 

1. The model of Predator in the video is different to the one being given away.

 

2. I assume it is stock that never sold and has thus been used for advertising in this competition giveaway.

 

I myself do not care however and would love a new computer as I can't afford any new parts let alone a full computer. Bloody make my year to win this =P.

the one in the video is not the one you win.

 

But the questions relate to the model in the video.

 

I also need to win it, to play Borderlands 2.

Yep, these guys have got it right. We're not trying to pull a swifty - basically Acer want to give away machine X, but wanted the video to be about machine Y :)

I watched the whole stupid video, it was a PC in the jungle with panther growls and stuff and didn't mention any specs? Maybe I blinked and missed it? I guess I got it wrong if there was an SSD.

 

Edit: Just watched it again and must have blinked, my bad.

 

I also have no idea what this is, 2TB 7200rpm 3.0. Is it SataIII 6.0Gb/s or SataII 3.0Gb/s? I think the '3.0' is confusing and unnecessary as its most likely a SATAIII drive which is never written this way. I assume you guys just did a copy/paste and its ambiguous/confusing Acer specs, no need to respond directly to me.

 

Additional feedback, the closing dates in the T&C must be incorrect, as its 13/7 which was 4 days ago.

Should the prize be unclaimed by 11:59 EST, 13/07/2012, a new draw will take place no sooner than three months after the original draw date, on 27/10/2012 at 10am in order to pick a replacement winner(s) and redistribute any unclaimed prize(s).

I fell into this trap.

 

I answered incorrectly by watching the video rather than reading the specs.

 

Guess I won't be winning anything this time round!

The trap I fell into was not limiting my answer to "25 words or less".

 

Only in the small print conditions of entry does it say that the answer to the second question has to be 25 words or less, so my poetic and very appropriate answer will be disregarded because it's too long :(

 

And if this forum clock is indicative of "Atomic time" I'm probably too late as well- it's not even 2330 hrs yet the forum says its tomorrow already!

Has this competition actually finished? Cause there is nothing titling on the site of the Winner? Just need confirmation if someone has won this or not?

Oh sigh. Some fellow from Queensland won...

 

Back to the plan of saving all my Christmas money and then my birthday, next year money (maybe) as well for a new graphics card...

 

Hopefully games don't suddenly become highly CPU intensive or new features on motherboards are required =/
