ya the acer would be good. there are other fine manufacturers out there as well but it would probably be more expensive.
have u also considered apple's new macbook?
the Acer Travelmate 8204WLMi?
I'm trying to replace my desktop PC that was destroyed in Katrina and my 4-year-old laptop with a desktop replacement notebook. I will be using it a lot at home but there will also be numerous occassions where I use it on the road as well. I like notebooks with a lot of speed and power with the ability to do multiple tasks all at once. The acer is in my price range, so this would be a nice selection, correct?
