I got my new laptop today. It’s a wide screen (15.6″) Acer 5732Z.
Up front I’m not too happy with the wide screen, but the Acer was the best choice among the laptops as far as price and specifications were concerned. (Many thanks to my beloved M for helping me with the short list.)
When asked, I said that I was ninety-two percent satisfied with my new acquisition. Retrevo describes it as “a budget laptop with better than average features.”
The minuses: Aside from the wide screen (I prefer non-wide), and all the jacks and ports are on the left side (I prefer them placed at the back).
The pluses: Bright screen, the addition of a number keypad, comfy keypad layout. The thing’s longer than usual, but…
I’m happy. =)
