Dear All,

I just purchase a laptop because my last laptop that I only used 12 times over 1 year (yes, because I have an oldie that still with loads of programming) whent dead when I was doing several backups of my 160Gb Hardisk from the old one.

My last one was HP pavillion DV6, and I found that they had/ have loads of probs.

Now I have a ACER, I could not find yet things wrong, but I would like to test it as I have 15 left to return if something wrong.

So, question is what kind of tests can I do to take this laptop to the limits 24hrs?

I am at the moment with 3 Video players reading 10 movies different from each other but in a loop 24hrs.

There is only 29% of RAM resources and 6% Usage of CPU.

Any ideas?

general rules with any laptop - if its got nvidia products it WILL fail

general testing - linx + furmark for 24 hours will see it shut down if its a poorly designed laptop (well cooling design anyhow) - some DV2xxx/DV6xxx/V6xxx's will do this right out of the box :D 

if you want it to last, stick with everything Intel or second best ATI/AMD
