but Celeron processor.....that's why its only 300 bones.

Software_Lover3271d ago

I said nevermind, LOL. But yeah, surfing the web, office, would probably work fine.

JsonHenry3270d ago

Yeah, not too shabby a price even for a celeron.

zeeshan3270d ago

It's a great deal for students! Man, notebooks are getting cheaper every day!

badkolo3271d ago

who cares if its a celeron, for basic surfing and such at 300 bones this aint bad at all.

a perfect extra laptop and a perfect gift.

dtrain213270d ago

i'm a noob at this but whats wrong with the Celeron, is it not reliable or somethin?

ReBurn3270d ago

Celerons are reliable for light duty computing tasks. But they don't hold up well for processor-intensive applications like photo editing or software development.

ambientFLIER3270d ago

A Celeron is perfectly fine. Yeah, it's not as fast as a Pentium 4, or whatever, but it's still a 2.2ghz. It will be more than enough, unless you are going to play games.

Best Buy has a $349 Acer laptop with 3GB RAM, 160 GB HDD, an AMD Athlon CPU and Windows 7 Home Premium. If you're going to spend $300 on this you might as well spend the $50 and get the better deal from Best Buy.

I just bought that one for my little brother as a basic pc.

I picked up the Acer BB had for $349 and so far I have loved it.
