There's an intel model too. One of the Acer laptops is Intel based. The last one. One of my friends suggested that I should wait a bit, while Puma and Atom will be available and help push the prices down, and maybe a Puma platform would be the better solution for me:) I like the idea of changing between video cards to save battery power. He also told me that I should by Toshiba instead of Acer due to it's higher quality. Is he right? Another guy has an acer laptop and he is very satisfied with it. What do you think?
