Acer Aspire E-11, $199This laptop offers a familiar clamshell design in a fairly portable and affordable package. Its 11.6-inch, 1366-pixel-by-768-pixel screen doesn't support touch, and its battery life is rated at a short five hours. But with a dual-core Intel Celeron processor, a 32-GB solid state drive for internal storage, USB ports, and a relatively light weight of 2.84 pounds, the Aspire E-11 could be a good laptop for budget minders.

Re: Exploit the moment
@shakeeb: yes I agree with you but although android have captured the market but this doesn't mean that MS will let it go so easily. If they will get a little bit relaxed than soon some other company will get their PC's OS share as well so I think their strategy is good which is not totally defensive.

Re: Exploit the moment
I think the super notebook nowadays is already quite good. For example, I got an ASUS X200 recently. It's thin and slim but with enough processing power. The netbook is not quite popular anymore nowadays.

Re: Loathing Windows 8
I don't know if they're specifically targeting the lower price range but I think it's a good strategy.

Re: Beware ...
Yeah Android apps can have malware as Google has no application QA policy. This has been a problem since day 1. Windows aslo has the malware issue.

Re: Beware ...
Well I was talking about Malware being on android devices. Windows devices could have them just as easily.

Re: Beware ...
@ PaulS681 – One reason could be that Android OS could be installed on a less powerful device easily, whereas Windows OS requires more powerful set of hardware components.

Re: Beware ...
@nomii- Android devices already have malwares and viruses, they could easy come with the free apps you download from the Play store. The problem with android is that Google doesn't screen the apps before they are on the Playstore.

Re: Exploit the moment
@nomi – Do you think Microsoft is trying to get users towards touch screen windows OS devices? Don't you think Android devices have already captured this market?

Re: Beware ...
@Angelfuego- Some stores offer discount offers for both online and in store purchases, whereas some only have in store deals. When it comes to convenience online purchases are much better and you always have the option to compare specifications online.

Re: tablets
@Michael – Paying a visit to the store is always much better than making a purchase online specially when purchasing on special deals. However it could be frustrating to physically visit the store on such a day.
