For the price, the specs are great. However, bring a friend with you. Meet in a public area, such as the parking lot of a major retailer (like wal-mart). Be warned: Acer sucks. Not going to say that laptop may have issues, but I hate Acer. Trying to get their laptops fixed blows as they have poor support for drivers and the like if you try to re install Windows. You might have better luck than me... Be prepared to buy it a new battery if you plan on using it unplugged. Most laptop batteries only last 2 years (in my experience).
