I just got a W-mart weekly ad and there is an ad for an Acer AS5515-5879, 15.4", 3GB memory, 160 GB HD, with Vista basic for $348. I couldn't find much info on this model other than the ad write up. At this price I thought this would make a great travel laptop. I also thought about replacing Vista with Linux.
Opinions please.

Acer's don't have a good reputation, I'd keep looking.

Watch yourself at Walmart. Quite often the system you see there is specifically built for them to be cheaper. Best Buy does the same thing.

Did a Google. Looks like it's available at Walmart and eBay. Makes me nervous...
