Well, I just happened to be laptop shopping when I saw several people waiting for Best Buy to open, which seemed strange since most of the time the new sales start on Sunday. Well, these people were there for this...

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Acer+-+Extensa+Laptop+with+Intel%26%23174%3B+Celeron%26%23174%3B+Processor+-+Black/9632183.p?id=1218134616331&skuId=9632183

...which sold out in about 30 minutes. I bought one just for the heck of it; I'll continue to laptop-shop and if I find something more preferable, I'll return it within 14 days. Then again, maybe I don't need better tech specs being that I basically web surf, watch DVDs, and do writing.

I would appreciate anybody who's really computer-knowledgable to give an opinion based on the specs provided by the link.

I was hoping for some tech-savvy response. No biggie -- for I fixed my Compaq about an hour ago by just repeatedly pressing F11 while it was coming on like some website instructed. Fixed for free, and Geeks on Wheels wanted $255 for 2 hours of labor and $95 for the hard drive. So I'll be returning the Acer.
