What do you want to do with them? Also, anything is better than an Acer so if you want Windows, try a different brand. ;)

. . . a mac at 1000 dollars . . . an acer at 500 dollars

 

Remember, you will get what you pay for!

 

The Mac may be a better quality machine, but my experience with them is very limited.  Also, the Apple system does have some disadvantages.

 

Acer, EMachine, and Gateway all come out of the same factory.  I have known Acer notebooks that have lasted 6 years!  I have also known Acer notebooks that have failed right out of the box, from the factory.  As a general rule, if it's going to fail, it will fail within the first year.  (Except for HDD's.  Acer generally uses a low end HDD, that may or may not last more than 3 years.)

 

I suggest you try this forum, for help:

Before we can help "spend your money" kindly share if you want a laptop, iPad, netbook or desktop.

If a desktop, do you have a monitor?

 

Perhaps a Moderator can move your thread to the Questions and Advice forum as Naught mentioned.

What software do you want to run on the machine?

 

Do you currently have a machine where you will want to move things from to your new machine?
