  1. Pretty good deal for what you get:

    Acer Aspire 5100-3357: http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Acer-Aspire-15-4-Widescreen-Notebook-PC-5100-3357/sem/rpsm/oid/176217/catOid/-12963/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do

    Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit)
    AMD Turion 64 MK-36 2.0 Ghz (512 KB L2 Cache)
    1 GB Memory (256 MB Shared at Default; can be turned down to 32 MB)
    Ati Xpress 1100 (256 MB Dedicated; total 512 MB)
    120 GB HDD SATA
    Built-in Wireless (B+G)
    15.4" Widescreen display (1280 x 800)
    Super Multi Dual Layer Drive (Burns CDs, DVDs, DL DVDs, and DVD-RAM)
    Media Card Reader
    4 USB Ports

    It's $669 before rebate and $569 after rebate. I bought one for myself and I love it. Graphics work fine with Aero, though I recommend upgrading the RAM to 2 GB.

    Nice find. Even those graphics aren't the best I bet you could probably play any game you want on it.

    The price is now back at $649 ($20 cheaper still than the original price w/o rebates). Though, at that price it is still a great buy.

    I'm thinking about buying this laptop. Does anyone know about its performance?

    Oh yeah and I don't care if I play games on low settings with a 640 x 480 resolution.
