Student Needs a new computer and advice

I'm a college student that needs a new computer. I was looking at the acer extensa ex4420. But there are no reviews. Anyone have this and can let me know how it is.

Just some info I need a windows based laptop, I'm on a budget and would like it no larger than a 14 inch maybe 15 at most but light weight since i will have this at school, work and home.
Please help...

I think the HD is just fine. I have a 40 gig HD and I'm happy as a duck in water -- and his HD would be three times as big as mine.
