Acer 5515 Aspire Laptop

For $348 at Wal-Mart. My mom got one last night, seems like a pretty nice machine for just the normal stuff it'll be used for. Anyone have any thoughts or comments on this?

(There's 3 different model tabs, use the one in the middle, AS5515-5879)

I have a 5315 and like it just fine. For the money, they're hard to beat.

Yeah it's pretty sweet. I wished the battery lasted longer than 2 hours though. I'm gonna try loading The Sims 2 on it and see what happens lol

Quit hating on my Sims. You're just mad because I haven't made a Sim of you and had my Sim do "Woohoo" with you. I'm nerdy & proud.

The speakers do suck, but it's fine with headphones for me.
