We bought this Acer Aspire 10.1" laptop computer mainly to take on vacation with us. Trying to downsize what we can carry on a flight and not check in luggage was top priority. This little notebook does it all for us, lightweight (2.95 lbs), very portable, and gives us the convenience of being connected with all the necessary software needed while we are away from home.

Specifics of our Acer Aspire 10.1" LCD, 160GB HDD, 1GB Ram Laptop AOD150-1165

**Processor: Intel Atom N270

**Memory: 1024 MB DDR2 533MHz SDRAM Single Channel

**Hard Drive: 160GB 5400RPM SATA

**Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Home (a major plus in purchasing this.....NO Vista!!!

**LCD Monitor: 10.1" WSVGA Acer CrystalBrite Display (1024 x 600)

**Media Card Reader: 6-in-1 digital media manager

**Webcam: 0.3 integrated crystal eye webcam

**Graphics: Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950

**Video Memory: Up to 224MB

**Integrated Touchpad (do not use, wireless mouse is my choice)

**High definition audio w/two built in stereo speakers located in the bottom front side

**6-Cell Li-ion battery: gives us 6 hours of battery life which we have yet to reach

**Also: Wireless Network Adapter, 4GB SD card with PC Essentials software, power cord and pre installed software, 3 USB ports, ethernet, headphone and microphone jack. The PC Essentials Software includes such programs as Cooking with Betty Crocker, Family Tree Heritage, a variety of Hoyle games and Quicken Willmaker, to name just a few.

We chose to purchase the Sapphire Blue color. Outside finish does show fingerprints but are easily wiped off. The measurements are a small 10.2" long by 7.3" wide by 1.3" high. As I mentioned earlier, the weight is only 2.95 lbs and is such a difference from carrying around a larger laptop. This can fit in an oversized purse or in one of the outside pockets of your carry on luggage.

There is a manufacturer's 2-year limited warranty.

The keyboard has a very nice touch and programs load in at a good speed even with multiple windows open, this is from a person that wants to get there now! The heat generated on the bottom does not seem any different than my larger laptop. We've been very happy with our "little" addition although it does take a little adjustment when you're used to a larger computer!
