I recently purchased an Acer Aspire, AST 690. It has 3.0 ghz. processor, 1gb DDR2 memory, 250 gb hard drive, dual DVD burner drive, and came with a 19" flat screen wide monitor. I purchased it from WalMart where my wife is employeed, so it was nice to get the 10% discount as well. I have allmost always used only HP, so I was so scared to try anything else, that it took me forever to finally settle on this one. And let me tell you......"I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PUPPY"!!!!! With the exception of trying to get use to the Windows Vista Home Premium that came preinstalled, this computer looks fantastic, and just runs like the road runner I use!!!! lol It is really fast!!!! I also purchased the 2 year extended warranty with it, just in case, but with the discount we get for my wife working there, it was payed for by the 10%, and I feel much more secure!!!!!
I would recommend this to anyone else that I know, and that is saying a lot from a hard core Hewlett Packard fan for years now!!!!
Good luck, and happy shopping to find your new computer. And DON'T be afraid to try out the ACER!!! You'll be glad you did. And if not, you can always return it!!!!!!
