    I am using an Acer right now, I am kind of a fan, but even I must say those specs are kind of low for that price. It the small size is the most important I guess it is not too bad, but I would think you should go for at least 2GB ram, Vista, and a dual processor.

    i got the 120gb BLUE model and i love it. It is the best mini notebook on the market BUT did you say it was for a college student who watches dvds w/ his laptop? well this computer is so small it does NOT have a Disc Drive to put DVD’s in but you can buy an external drive you plug in and it works just as good! But if you’re looking for a small laptop to use this is the one to get but if you’re looking for a replacement for a regluar laptop you can get a better one than this for $400 but it will be bigger and not as portable and not as cool.

    But $400 for the 160gb model you are describing is the average price but since it comes with the extra software and 4gb flash drive its a good buy.

    The Acer Aspire one is also 100% vista compatible, if you’re wondering =]

    This is cheapest model DVD drive i could find:
