Got an Acer Aspire One 725! Thanks for the help! Hello. I have $200 that I'm able to spend on a new laptop. I'm looking for something that is relatively new (with Windows 8) to use as a companion to my desktop. I just need this for Skype, word processing, and general computing. Gaming and intensive applications will be kept on my desktop. I was looking into the Acer C7 because I'm perfectly fine using Chrome OS. I use all of Google's services (including Drive instead of Microsoft Office) but the battery life is atrocious. Then I also looked into getting an ASUS Transformer TF101 with a keyboard dock, but that's too much. Literally $200 (+tax and s/h) is my ,ax! Requirements: Dual core, at least 1.2GHz or higher 2gb or more ram Hard drive doesn't matter as I'll replace it with an SSD Windows 8 preferably NEW! Every other laptop I bought was either refurbished or used. I'd like to get a new one for the first time ever. So please give me your recommendations! Edit: screen size >11.6" and a DVD drive is optional. I have been looking for weeks but can't find what I'm looking for.
