a toshiba one. 1.6ghz, 1gb ram, etc.
basically it wasnt too bad, but the build quality sucked.
anyway considering that laptop would usually cost around 820 without all the discounts i think 594 is pretty good

I don't suggest Acer. For the most part, decent build quality and horrendous customer service.
