    Good budget laptop deal from NewEgg

    I've been on the lookout for a good budget laptop to use for word processing and surfing, and occasionally to take with me when I travel. I don't like having expensive laptops because I worry about damaging them, so a lower-end budget laptop is ideal for me.

    Anyway, there's a great deal on a 14.1" Acer over at NewEgg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834115556

    It's only $449 shipped (free shipping, no tax).

    AMD 2.0GHz dual core, 3GB ram, NVIDIA GeForce 9100M G, 320GB hard drive, wireless-N, DVD burner, webcam, card reader, etc. It also qualifies for a free Windows 7 upgrade via one of Acer's partners.

    I picked one of these up for my sister a few months ago for when she starts college, and I was surprised at how quick it was. I was expecting a piece of junk. The laptop itself feels a tad flimsy (it is cheap plastic after all), but overall it's definitely not bad for the price.

    Just passing the deal along in case anyone else might be interested.

    The specs looks so similar to my current laptop, except mine is Compaq. The price is pretty decent.

    They look similar to mine, although mines a Dell. I wouldn't go with an AMD processor. My laptop seems to be very slow due to the processor.. But it could also be Windows Vista..

    Yeah price wise Acer are cheap and their service sucks, And they look cheap you could try Compaq which is light years ahead but think you might have to shed a few more dollars, But my experience is its all worth that extra money I personally am using two of their products.
