New Acer Aspire Laptop Is A Netbook Challenger

Before the laptop came to the market, PCs dominated. Later, a new, cheaper alternative came to the scene: the netbook. For students and budget buyers, the netbook seemed like a God-send. They were nearly as powerful, but were also smaller and more portable.

Now it looks like the laptop is fighting back with a new contender: The Acer Aspire 5516-5474, weighing in at 6 pounds, double the average weight for your standard netbook. At $279, this is a bargain to just about anyone, shaving some $300 off the price of other new ultra-thin laptops.

This bargain laptop computer is also a little power-house, featuring an AMD-Athlon TF-20 64bit Processor running a 1.6 GHz CPU, 2GB of DDR2 RAM (PC2-5300), and a 160GB Serial ATA hard drive. It also has a crisp 15.6″ display.

This laptop comes with Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic Service Pack 1, as well as a host of other programs, making it ready for anything you’d want to throw at it (apart from your cup of coffee!)
