Just ordered this laptop. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,2150869,00.asp Metal case, 14 inch screen, large battery, 2 gig's of memory, Intel Core 2 Duo and Nvidia graphics, it's just the laptop I wanted and the only other one I could find close in price was an Acer. It's my first laptop since an old black and white Mac with Mac OS 7.5 on it. That was pre-internet. I ordered this one for my mother to use. She is going to be in the hospital for four weeks for kidney cancer surgery and treatment. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
