Post 448 A NOTBook from Acer at Best Buy This Week


A NOTBook from Acer at Best Buy This Week

What else would you call it?

It's really a Notebook at a NETBOOK Price.

Best Buy was offering an Acer laptop (AS5516-5474) that had been previously listed at $299 for $279.

The specifications: an AMD Athlon TF-20 64 processor, 15.6-inch WXGA display, 2GB DDR2 memory, DVD-RW drive, 160GB hard disk drive, ATI Radeon Xpress 1200 graphics, 802.11b/g wireless, 10/100 Ethernet LAN, and Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic Edition. Pretty close to mainstream-laptop hardware with the exception of the low-end AMD-ATI silicon and the older "g" wireless.

It weighs in at 6 pounds and measures 1.5-inches thick.
