My girlfriend and I share this laptop and being a computer geek, I'm not super impressed. Then again, I have high expectations when it comes to computer equipment.


Mobile AMD Sempron processor 3500+ (1.8 GHz, 512KB L2 cache)

14.1" WXGA Acer Crystal Brite LCD

ATI Radeon Xpress 1100



512MB DDR2

For my girlfriend, who basically uses it for email, MySpace, FaceBook, and nothing too processor or RAM demanding, this computer is a pretty nice bargain. But for me, it's sort of cutting it close. I generally use a lot of MacroMedia and Adobe software and those programs use up a lot of memory. Although this laptop can pull it off, I would feel more comfortable knowing that I can run even more programs without noticing a slow down.

Additionally, the laptop comes with the basic version of Windows Vista and you are given option of upgrading it to a better version for a little bit of money.

Physically, the laptop isn't very heavy, and it has got a decent size screen that is nice and clear. It comes as a nice dark color, which is generally traditional for computers. One thing I have to warn people about is the battery. It is awful. It died out after 2 months of use. So beaware of that.
