Here is a somewhat lower cost and portable notebook computer from Acer. It’s well equipped to handle such simple tasks as surfing the internet, checking email and browsing social media. That makes it a nice starter machine for students, a good home laptop and light tasking work computer.

This is a decent priced laptop that it seems Acer sought to balance out price and performance with. It has a 1.1 GHz Intel Celeron processor and 4 GB of DDR3 RAM that make it a nice notebook computer for doing basic internet tasks.

Perhaps its best and most surprising feature is its 64 GB eMMC SSD. Although this laptop lacks storage it makes up for it with this faster performing solid state drive.
