OK so I'm working for an old friend and it's great. I need a new computer for the job and I recommended a laptop as I will be off-site a bit. Better to have all my resources with me instead of a bunch of CD/DVDs and having to access a client computer...\r\n\r\nWe are a reseller for Acer and Dell from what I am told.\r\n\r\nWhen I'm home I have my HP dv9000 - \r\nMicrosoft Windows XP Media Center Edition\r\nDuo Core 2.16GHz Processors\r\n2GB RAM\r\n300GB HDD\r\n17" Screen\r\nand full-size keyboard with number pad <-\-\-must have\r\n\r\nI know Dells... I don't know Acer.\r\nWhich would you choose? And what model?
