Hmm... Well, actually, I don't need that good of graphics, just something that will support DirectX 10 (Eleven would be nice too) and a good processor so my XNA game projects don't take 2 minutes to load.
Yeah, sorry if it sounded like I didn't. I just was wondering if it had enought battery life to match my requirements. Anyway, the Acer seems to have really good specs for the price, so thanks for pointing that out for me
