I recently purchased this Acer for my son; it is really fast and runs anything he wants. This is a 17" screen so it is a large laptop, not too efficient for daily transportation around town, if you understand what I mean, but I am assuming that you will not be taking this to the office every day. This is the 2nd of these that we got, the first, older model got stolen but we never had any problems with it at all. Just remember, these come with tons of trialware, adware, and garbageware installed that you really have to get off of it. You also may want to get rid of Acer's "helpful" utilities that "help" you with Windows regular configuration screens. For one example, there will be a "helpful" Acer internet connector "tool" that will make if "easier" to connect to a network. Get rid of it. There are several of these "helpful" overlay programs that load on boot, and they don't do anything that you can't do by using the proper Windows utility directly. Once you get rid of all this garbage, it really flies. And if you care, it is really a beautiful machine, too. These were going for around $1100 but Newegg dropped the price for some reason.
[EDIT]: As an afterthought, read Newegg's users' reviews, it will give you a good idea of the machine, pros and cons.
