What Do You Think Of This Laptop?

Tue Dec 11, 2007 6:08 pm

550$, that seems cheap for an excellent product.

What is it missing? I'm looking for a laptop for my parents. My sister found this one  Smile
We're ready to pay perhaps up to 1000$ (although the above will probably be enough)

Personally I've had several quality problems with Acer laptops breaking. But it might just have been bad luck. I'd certainly go for a major brand, but YMMV.

In this case... consider a MacBook. It's $1099 and it can also run Windows if you want to. But its design beats all the others  Smile

BA, is it because it is a "mobile" processor? Or do you mena the speed?

Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core mobile processor T2310 with 533MHz frontside bus, 1MB L2 cache and 1.46GHz processor speed

Thanks anyway  Smile

As of yesterday CompUSA was going to shut down their remaining stores.

The big sell off is supposed to start tomorrow so I'm going to head on over and see what I can scrounge.
