My brother's looking for a laptop that he needs really soon and all he wants to do are common tasks (e.g. surf the internet, Office Suite, burn cds, and use a webcam) and they don't require anything intensive. I know quite a bit about computers and I was wondering about Acer's reliability as we had purchased a family computer (an Acer Desktop) that died within about a year of use for some reason. It was a nice desktop too...only problem was Vista then one day it just died and I believe the mobo was dead.
Here is a laptop I found - I am willing to go anywhere else to find one too but the price has to be less than $650 ish. I also would like to have a warranty on a laptop because they tend to be...well hard to repair at a reasonable cost.
