    Aha Rick. So you’re an Aspire fan too. You know I wonder why some tech writers underestimate Acer just because it was designed in Taiwan (not China!).

    Acer has produced a better product the last several years. For years they made great add-on products for your computer (CD, DVD drives. Scanners, etc) but their machines lacked quality, but they have stepped up their quality and that is a good thing. My personal opinion for laptops are ASUS and Lenovo Thinkpads. ASUS has always built a top notch motherboard and add-on cards as well as quality machines. Lenovo took over the Thinkpad line of IBM laptops and although they might not have all the “bells and whistles” that some other machines do. The thinkpad line has always been the “Timex of laptops” They take a licking and keep on ticking. Yes, they can be difficult to dissasemble, but IMHO I would purchase one or an ASUS over any other machine.

      Frank,

      I love the ThinkPads; however, a little more on the costly side. This particular notebook by Acer is just slightly higher in cost than a netbook. Good entry notebook and Acer is making a decent product these days.

      Thanks for dropping by and commenting.

      Rick
