    Buy.com's web page is showing $299.99 ((4:00 PM EST 16 Jan)
    (Still a great buy though)

    The price of these little laptops is getting low enough It seems reasonable to spring for one of these instead of a digital photo frame! Same portability, but higher screen resolution, and obviously much more functionality.

    Photoshop Elements 3 through 5 would run easily with the 1GB of installed RAM.

    Credit Woes........

    Oh, you need their credit card (!) or (?) To Quote Billy S., "Aye, there's the rub".

    kimsland, the link is going right to the buy.com catalog page. Well, for me anyway. So I guess, who are you quoting is a fair question.

    The Acer One is quite a deal compared to it's more expensive cousins the Wind and Eee. :)
