You can use one of those XS Shirts or three as a nice laptop cover.

We are sure it isnt a balloon string?

Pros: The pills were there.
Cons: So was the tank.

These are actually pretty decent media computers. I don't think gaming would do that well on this but I almost exclusively use my laptops for media anyways.

Looks like a good deal. I've had really good luck with Acer, even though I'm sure the Acer-h8ers will disagree.

I have a HP with a 5650 and this 4250 as the power saving graphics chip, I actually play alot of games on it, older games like Mirror's Edge and Stalker. Heck, even Left 4 Dead on low.
It obviously cant touch the 5650 but it is okay for older games.

Pros: The pills were there.
Cons: So was the tank.

My mother had an Acer laptop, it performed so poorly she was quite tempted to toss it into the ocean (she lives at the beach). It now sits in a dark corner of her closet.

I just picked up a 15.6" Acer with the exact same specs at Fry's for $328 new. Battery life isn't great, probably less great with a larger screen.

It runs nice, but i'm going to put an SSD into it bo-eyyyyyyy

$600 (new) at Amazon ... http://amzn.to/sZUTB3

Only one review there, but it's quite positive.

Over 50 reviews at Wal Mart (http://bit.ly/usEX9A) and they're all great.

It's that hot, energy sucking Phenom cpu, I have the N930 quad core at 2ghz and it runs HOT and sucks up the battery like no other. I can only imagine how hot and battery draining this 2.2 quad core is. I am sticking to Intel from now on.

Pros: The pills were there.
Cons: So was the tank.

I love my Acer! The size makes it a little unwieldy on the go, but it's great around the house.

I dont know, this might be hot for like 200 bucks or so. But I am cheap and am anti-AMD after owning two AMD systems.

Likely because they have "less than usual" requirements for their machine. If you are looking for a solid performer and want to save some dime, then go for it.

Not everyone needs a shiny new laptop that can run Crysis.

I do enjoy a good grilled cheese sandwich.

I am using a Toshiba C655 that I picked up at Microcenter for $350 a few months ago and it works great for what I need it for. Even runs Starcraft II pretty well.
