Acer Laptop Aspire AS7551-7471 AMD Phenom II Dual-Core N660 (3.0 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD ATI Radeon HD 4250 17.3

Pros: Cheap. A 3.0GHz dual-core within the same pricing level as many 2.2GHz and even single core processors. Easily upgradeable Ram, not required by any means though. LED LCD screen is nice, so is 1600x900 resolution. No freezing or glitching like I had heard about previously with this model, even before upgrading the Ram. I like the mousepad, Android-like two finger zoom in/out function is neat.

Cons: Graphics performance could be better. Not ideal for 2011+ gaming. But AMD Fusion Utility would probably help push this machine pretty well. Also, didn't expect much in the way of battery life because of the dual-core CPU, but it's not terrible. Enough juice to watch a full movie and then some.

Other Thoughts: CPU scored a 6.5/7.9 in Windows 7 WEI rating at the time of the review. I upgraded Ram to 8GB pretty cheaply (thanks NewEgg!) and it scores a 7.1/7.9 so...

Above-average CPU speed and performance, and even with the Ram upgrade it still makes this a cheap laptop with a high bang-for-your-buck rating. Very satisfied.

PNY 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Laptop Memory Model MN4096SD3-1333

Pros: Inexpensive, at the time cheaper to buy two sticks of 4GB than an 8GB (4GBx2) package. Plus I got two free Sony movie downloads... haven't used them yet.

Cons: None thus far.

Other Thoughts: 1333 is worth the extra couple bucks if you're looking for cheap Ram.

Eagle Tech Consus 80GB USB 2.0 2.5

Pros: Plug n play. Works great so far. Seems quick enough despite being a USB interface for a HDD.

Cons: Looks somewhat fragile and makes me paranoid anytime a beverage is within 5 or 6 feet considering you can clearly see the internal HDD from both the top & bottom of the case.

Other Thoughts: We'll see how long it lasts, I'm using it mainly as a back-up drive & an easy way to dump files from the laptop to one of the desktops, & vice-versa, quickly and easily while maintaing hard copy back-ups. For $15 or whatever it was, probably should have just gone with the larger Eagle USB HDD. Wouldn't trust the openness of the case as the sole back-up drive for anything important, but as a bonus drive for redundancy it serves its purpose.
