  1. Acer Aspire One Sapphire Blue
    used to hate lugging my old laptop around, it was heavy and the battery never lasted long enough. If you buy this with the larger 6 hour battery option, it’s cheaper then adding it later. This neat little number fits in your purse and has a pretty powerful WiFi receiver, I take it grocery shopping to Safeway to look up recipe ingredients!!
    The only drawback is the small screen. Your eyes get a bit tired with extended viewing. I highly recommend it though for people on the go and it’s great for travel.

    Best note book on the market today! I love this product long battery life and easy to use. I highly recommend this item,

  3. great info for me, thank you for your time
