Welcome to CSR Nation
What is the best net book for the money out there, around $300? What has the best audio?
Which one do you use, the $309 one Janet is talking about with the full keyboard?
No, my understanding is that from Version 10 on in Catalyst, you cannot use them with Windows 7 because of Catalyst 10 on only runs on 64 bit. Anyone on Catalyst know different? I'm current on my software, but have the concern when I saw the 32 bit on this netbook.
The netbook I just bought for $309 comes with Windows 7 Home Premium, which is 64-bit.
Did you buy the two year service plan for $79?
Have you ever seen this netbook in person?
I didn't buy a service plan. I haven't seen this particular one in person. I have had an Acer Aspire before. They already shipped the one I ordered, so I'll let you know how I like it. It should be here in a couple of days.
I just got my Acer. I'm not wild about the color of it. I like the full-sized keys, but I still prefer the Asus Eee.
It feels like it might run hot. I haven't had it plugged in very long, and it's getting warm.
I like the Toshiba. I have an Asus or Acer, forget which, and the port for the a/c adapter has this little pin that doesn't feel very sturdy. The Toshiba has a full size adapter and I like that. I have two Toshibas that I use regularly for loaners and they have been reliable so far. Knocking on wood now.
Can you send the Acer back, Janet? Nice try, but sounds like no go.
I ordered this Dell from NewEgg. I've had Inspirons in the past and they certainly had pretty good audio with a good mic. My Fujitsu Lifebook is good recording quality, but the its playback speakers are not very powerful. How's the audio on the one you just got?
It's 4 years old and I only take it to jobs, but Fujitsu's customer services is terrible the past year so I thought I need a backup to take to jobs.
Here's what I bought. It only weighs 3.5 pounds, has a better processor and more RAM than the other nebooks.
