Hello



I'm new to the forum :hello:  and would like to ask for some advice on a laptop I am looking to buy. It's an Acer V5 thin and light with a Pentium 967 1.3ghz & 4gb of ram, running W7 home premium.

My question is; is this enough performance for my needs?

The absolute max I would do is run the laptop with 1 external screen, doing email/web/office on the external screen with a dvd / iTunes (sometimes HD) movie playing at the same time on the laptop screen. I don't play games, I rip the occasional dvd for my ipad but not at the same time as doing other stuff (I leave it ripping overnight).

I would be very grateful of any advice!

Thanks
