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.
