Thanks for the suggestion. That is a killer deal. I find that 14 inch screens are perfect for me though. I've done some more research on E-350 based notebooks and I found the Acer 4253 which is to be released in a few weeks or so. I've generally heard bad things about Acer notebooks and I was wondering if anyone has recently purchased an Acer notebook within the last 3 months and could tell me about their experience.
