Starting today the acer you were looking for is on sale at staples, it's $999.99. Not too shabby for a laptop with such a gorgeous LCD screen. Plus at that price the extended 3 year warranty is very affordable. Plus you get a high resolution, 1920x1080 TRUE HD screen, a 500MB hd, 1GB ATI Radeo 1GB DDR3 video card,. It would pretty much suit your requirements to a tee. And did I mention the LCD screen is Bright? Not as bright as a desktop LCD, but pretty much the brightest and largest on a laptop at Staples!
