And price ure willing to pay IMO save up and buy a decent 15.6in screen notebook ...probably what you are looking at is a NETbook and those are mainly just used for browsing the web and some Microsoft word work

they really dont do much but serf the web or stuff like that, if you want something that small, save up and purchase a tablet. Or a full on laptop. If your dead set on a netbook, your better off going with a brand such as HP or ASUS, I would stay away from the acers.

I have a 14.1" one that can play games very well if it the requirements aren't too demanding. I mostly use it for the wireless internet and occassionally as a DVD player. It currently needs few new parts and a clean install of my OS, but only because it's been through some trauma and malware in the past 4 years I've had it. It's a much sturdier machine than the Dell Inspiron I had 5 years ago. And the memory is upgradable. :inlove:

Status: steady with some minor issues
