Is this a good enough laptop for a college kid who only needs it for notes/web browsing and portability?

I like the ram, don't like the Vista...I already have a nice PC but I'm really looking for a good value laptop...this seems like a good deal...if you have a better idea for under $650 with a link, let me know...

Discuss.

I wouldn't buy a laptop with that small of a screen. I'll try and do better.

You are far too advanced for that laptop. You need to step up to this one, out of fairness to other laptops.

Its the masturbation tool of the future.

Now instead of hiding your mom's Sears catalog under your mattress and then locking yourself in the bathroom to flip to the ladies undergarment section, you can just go to Sears.com

LMAO That's rep funny. "Kids these days. They don't understand how good they have it. We all swore we'd never say that as kids, but you damn right I'm saying it now."

"Masterbation. These kids have NO IDEA!!! For guys my age and older, we'd have to sneak a catalog out of moms room. Or try and see between the squiggly lines of HBO for a peak at a titty."

"Then the internet came. Now teenage kids across the world can't get an erection without seeing some bitch getting choked online."

LMAO I can't remember who did that. But it was one of the funniest stand up bits I've ever seen.

My gf has a Compaq and loves it (and I've used it too, and it's not bad). It's not good for games (at least the new ones), but it's still useable...

I actually just purchased a laptop from newegg last week. It was only a 100 more than that one and it works great. By the way Acer is a great product/company. They recently bought out Gateway.

I can't wait, let me know!I like it a lot. My wife likes it more(I basically set it up and haven't got to use it yet), I uninstalled all the garbage off of it(Trials and such) and it flies. I thought about putting xp on it but it works great with Vista on it.

Fair enough. HP has the worst customer service on the planet, but this is a better deal IMO.

P.S. Rumor has it Circuit City is going out of business. They have had some great deals on a lot of shit here as of late.

College huh? You'll need a good TV. Here's one.

That's actually a phenominal deal. I've had my fingers on my wallet for hours now.

I knew it was too good to be true! I can probably make the trip to a Circuit City to get one...but chances are they won't have it in stock. That's a money deal.

Hootie:

That TK-57 chip blows. It only has half the cache of a Turion, which is still a very affordable processor for a laptop. If you are going to get a value-laptop look at something with a TL-60 chip in it or thereabouts.

This computer has a faster chip, more RAM, bigger HD, bigger screen, and is the same price:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8898357&type=product&id=1212192622683

It may still be available at some BB's b/c their ads start on Sunday and they usually have good stock of those laptops, at least for the first few days of the ad. If they run out, Sunday morning is the time to go.
