I think I want to buy a mini-laptop. Recently, I gave the older laptop to the boys to use as their computer. I used their old computer for spare parts to make my mother-in-laws computer come back to life. (Make sure your computer signs it’s organ donor card today)
So I have been left without a spare laptop. I used that one for presentations and for trips. Mainly I would be checking email, instant messaging and reading my news feed during these times and a full blown laptop is too much. However, I need to also give presentations, so a smartPhone is too small. I need something in the middle. A mini-laptop.
Dell has this model which is under $300. 1 gig of ram, 8″ screen, very light, 4 hours of battery. Comes with 8G of HD, but for $40, you get 16G. Webcam built in for $25. The only bad thing is 802.11g not N. Modified, $364 plus tax/shipping.
I am new to this market, so I am still exploring.
Amazon has an Acer Aspire that is similar for around the same price. It has a much larger hard drive, but its not solid state, its a real laptop HD. Probably affects battery life alot.
Amazon has this Asus model that has a slighly larger screen.
I’ll keep exploring, but I think I am going to buy one of these in the next week or so. The price is good and I HAVE TO HAVE ONE. Whoops…did my geeky nature get out there a little too much. Sorry.
