When Laptops Play Games - Part Deux

As it turns out, I didn't go to the PC Show, and I didn't buy a laptop for elder daughter.

The thought of taking part in an un-refereed scrum in order to see something that was available at the local computer store left me cold. It turns out that Acer was offering the same prices and freebies in town as out at the show. I also thought about quarterly price drops and the fact that with the summer school break, the requirement can be deferred a few months.

The main reason is that I am still trying to get over my aversion to Acer. I thought I had it under control but this article in Mobile Magazine has reawakened my trauma of dealing with Acer tech support.

Is it rational to buy a product from a company that scores "Worst Support" in a test of vendor tech support capability?
