The only issue with the Acer is that it comes with only 2GB of RAM and it is a 2x 1GB dual channel set. Since there are only 2 slots, to upgrade, you must replace both or mix.

I like to throw in my 5 cents worth again. Acer is really bottom of the barrel. If you want top shelf, go with Toshiba, Asus and to a certain extent Dell. Your call, of course. In addition, they make special series for Walmart with the cheapest ingredients. How else can the price come about.

actually i was just at wallmart by my house and i saw what they had to offer my best bet for 500.00 was the hp 3 gigs ram 2.2 ghz amd v series cpu and 250 gb hard drive webcam for 498 .00 and belive me i didnt ask any employess

Employees at walmart most not all have very and i mean very little knowlege about the product it would be like asking my dog how does my car drive

belive me i take alot of consideration in the information you all give me i take this serious and all comments and replys are taken with the deepest concerns the last thing i would want is to come up with a bad product

that is why im very fortunate i keep getting more and more answers and perspectives of what should be vs what it shouldnt

I, too, concur with WHS.

What you buy her shouldn't be a HP. Very poor quality in my opinion. My dad works at one the HP production plants in Richmond, VA and he won't touch any of their products besides printers. In fact, the computer they gave him to use at work is a IBM. that should tell you something right there.

This is funny. I worked for IBM for 35 years. Although I could get Lenovos with a company discount, I bought HP, Dell and Gateway. I have to admit that the HP laptop is so,so - but the desktop is great. I have already (easily) changed some of the inners (PSU, Graphics, SSD). Try that on a Dell. I just fought half a day to install a SSD in my Dell box. Both of the Gateways are laptops and the wife loves them. One is over 3 years old without problems. But my own next laptop is going to be a Toshiba - with backlit keys. Then I can see the keys, LOL.
