I'm looking for a cheap used laptop/netbook for cafe surfing. I normally have A LOT of tabs open in Firefox (50 tabs) and I also like to clean up large database collections of ebooks and mp3 files (20,000+ files in Mediamonkey or Calibre.) Other than this I would generally use it for basic computing and troubleshooting my other PC's. (OK without DVD drive.) No gaming or movies.
Found the Acer Aspire 722-BZ454 online for $200 cash, used 3 months.
Originally, she told me she was selling an Aspire AO722-0828, which has a 500gb HDD, 4Gb ram, and a C-60 processor. She asked $225. I jumped! Now I want to offer a lower price, maybe even $180, but I'm not excited anymore and don't want to waste my money.
I saw that people on Newegg and other places are saying they had a lot of trouble with the VGA driver, or finding another from ATI. Supposedly there is a way to extract the original drivers from the recovery partition and/or the DVD's.
I will post this question in a new thread for Asus. It turns out I need to reformat my friends older Aspire D260 as well so the answer is needed more urgently.
