I have an Acer desktop and I have never had an issue with it. 21 inch LCD monitor has held up for the past 4 years.

Im looking at a 10 inch netbook. Just for casual stuff, surfing/emailing. I asked on the netbook thread but it dissappeared

I'm not thaat knowledge about them, but from what I hear they aren't the best. However, they are probably the cheapest, so you are really getting whatyou pay for. If you are only going to be surfing the net, then I see no problems you should encounter with one of these.

My buddy owns one. It's hard to get used to typing on it cause its so small but for basic surfing and social networking I think its pretty nice. Costco andSam's Club sell them for pretty cheap. Cop it there if you have a membership.

I had a really bad experience about 3 years ago with an Acer laptop - had it repaired 5 times under warranty and then they wanted to charge me a bunch of moneyto fix the same problem when it was just out of warranty. Hardly had the thing working for the 18 months or so I had it. Bought a Dell and haven't had aproblem since.

I have one of those Netbooks - it's great for travelling and doing work here and there but I wouldn't want to use it all the time.

If I was buying another one I would either get the Dell or the Samsung. From what I've heard they have much better battery life and they just look moresolid. Mine is fine but the battery only last about 90 mins and it feels plasticky - I've had it for 9 months now and it's fine but it just doesn'tfeel solid.

You pay for what you get. My sister in law got one and it looks cool but lacks so much. Audio sucked, processor is slow and the only thing that was cool wasthe hardrive space. Get a Macbook!
