I don't mind if it is full voltage or low voltage as long as it doesn't get hot and cause noise. I will upgrade it to 8GB, run triple boot OS(Windows 7, Ubuntu and another linux distribution). On Windows, I will be running Vmware and few OS simultaneously inside.
I really want something light and thin, preferably 11.6 and not larger than 13.3. As I need space for several operating systems so my preference will not be SSD.
Get something with similar specs in the 14" models where the price drops off. Thin & light is expensive.
Dell Latitude E6420, Lenovo Thinkpad T420 or T420s, HP Elitebook
Any of the business models is going to be a better choice over time than the Acer's IMO.
I'd much rather have a 1600x900 LCD screen than save an extra half kilo in weight.
I don't like Dell. HP has announced that they stop to produce consumer PC's so I don't want HP. I really want something light and small. 14" is too large. I want to carry the laptop with me to everywhere.
What about AMD E-350? Asus has 1215B/N, I know I said i5 but do you think it is powerfull enough?
Hp did not announce it was exiting the the laptop / desktop market.
If you read it carefully, they're ending production of mobile devices and tablets and considering selling off the its consumer PC business.
This is what HP actually said.
