Hello, I'm looking for a new laptop, my motherboard on my HP died an ugly death recently, so i'm not interested in any HP products.

My budget for the new computer is: around $400

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? web-browsing, watching TV/videos, Skype, listening to music, photoshop

What software do you intend on using on the computer? Office, photoshop, nothing out of the ordinary

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? not really

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? lots running at once

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? yes, but eventually move them

I found this Acer today, but I've never bought an Acer and don't know anyone who has. Thoughts?
