I have a 15"6 Acer Aspire. It has a 500gb hard drive and 2gb of ram but it's upgradable to 8. It also has a DVD rom drive and inbuilt wireless so u can use it with your wi-fi Internet. It cost me $450 from **** smith electronics
The only thing I have noticed about the netbooks is that they don't have the DVD rom drives and most don't have the unbuilt wireless.
Netbooks have inbuilt wireless. I have an acer, msi and a samsung one and they all have the inbuilt wireless. I thought it would be pretty standard?The only thing I have noticed about the netbooks is that they don't have the DVD rom drives and most don't have the unbuilt wireless.
I don't think netbooks are worth it though considering you can buy an actual laptop for not much more these days.
Ok I'm thinking I'd rather a notebook then a NetBook. But still want to spend under $500. I definitely want a cd part, USB part, be small and light and wireless modem as I'll have wifi with my Internet plan at home. I'll go shopping for one soon, any brands I should steer clear off? Thanks for everyone's help
Personally i would steer clear of Acer at all cost. My acer PC had to be completely rebuilt within the first 6 months of warranty. It was constantly going back even after that to have bits and pieces replaced Out of warranty i had it rebuilt again and eventually just gave up on it.
The first netbook i bought was an acer as well. The motherboard died pretty early on. It would have cost more to replace the motherboard then it would have to buy a new netbook.
Plenty of people have told me to steer clear of acer as the above examples are apparently quite common.
Thanks I'll steal clear if acer.
Opposite question lol what brands would you recommend?
I gotta say I love acer, I still have the one I bought in 2005 and works perfectly. I just bought a new one earlier this year and I was about $450 and it's amazing :-)
But, like with everything, ppl have their fave brands :-)
Look up msy.com.au
They have stores all over Australia. They are the cheapest place to buy computers and parts. They have several notebooks for under $500
