Just ensure what ever laptop you get, that it has a decent videocard for HD playback. Stay away from anything with an intel intergrated video card/gpu, there crap. In my opinion aim for a Nvidia 8 series.

Just want to point out, my Futureshop showed 0 online and had none on display, but they did have two of them in stock. Since they're in the flyer as "final clearance" they may have said for most if not all stores to show 0 OH online. If you want this, today is the last day of the sale and your store might have them, even if they don't show online. 512mb dedicaced graphics AND HDMI out, it really is a steal. Haven't opened mine yet to check it out, but I'll report when I do. Who knows, they may continue that price till it's sold.

about that laptop, I picked one up when it was on sale for 799.99
The online shows 0 OH but some stores still carry them. I dont know if the final clearance is correct, from my understanding acer just recently released the gemstone laptops in canada.. i could be wrong.
I was also looking into a qosmio F45. the qosmios are awesome but too bad they are very limited in canada.

after about 3 weeks of using the acer, I can tell you guys its been stellar!
The screen on the machine is not bad, but everything else is solid! HD DVD looks awesome when connected to a 1080p tv. I was surprised to see that it included a built in sub woofer. The speakers can go pretty loud and keep the sound very clear. Slightly below qosmio quality though. Its best to go to the stores, i went last week and the metrotown store had a couple instock.

an in-depth review for the acer if anyone is interested.
