Alternative to acer ferrari fo200 Tags: Laptops Acer Last response: June 8, 2010 6:48 AM in Laptop Tech Support Share dafish_hk June 6, 2010 5:40:36 PM Hello, I am considering buying a laptop that can meet my needs. my current laptop is dying a slow and painful death from overheating regularly and crashing randomly. the acer ferrari fo200 seems like a good candidate, offering portability and performance at the same time. However the design and the price is a little off putting. I use it to do some light gaming (natural selection 2 & starcraft 2) and photoshoping. are there any similar netbook/notebooks out there that isn't as pricey or less flashy?

I need it somewhere inbetween. 5_How much battery life do you need? +4 hours. But not a crucial factor. I almost always have access to a plug 6_Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)? yes. setting can be low. 7_What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo / Video editing,watching movies, Etc.) I am an art teacher but also a bit of a gamer. I would like something that can run photoshop decently (won't do much complex stuff) and perferably be able to run a few games in low res. Mostly word processing. maybe a bit of video and music encoding depending on what i might film in the school. not a whole lot of it though. 8_How much storage (H.D.D Capacity) do you need? I'll probably get a external HD so this is not an issue. 250GB should be fine. 9_If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post their links. none really. perhaps www.fortress.com.hk but not necessarily. 10_How long do you want to keep your laptop? 3-5 years 11_What kind of Optical drive do you need?
