Acer Aspire: good specs, good price. Thoughts?


Dec 30, 2014
Hey guys, I'm looking for a new laptop. Mainly for internet browsing, light school work, and light gaming (emulators up to Nintendo DS performance). After looking around a bit, this is the best value I could find.

Acer Aspire E5-411-P32N $300

Here are the specs.
Windows 8.1 - 64-bit version - Intel® Pentium® N3530 quad-core processor (2.16GHz / 2.58GHz w/ Intel® Burst) - 4GB DDR3L memory - 500GB hard drive - 14" HD widescreen CineCrystal™ LCD (1366 x 768) - Intel® HD graphics - stereo speakers - HD audio - webcam - Precision Touchpad - full-size Acer FineTip keyboard - Wireless - Bluetooth® 4.0 - HDMI® - USB 3.0 - card reader - 7-hour battery - 1-year limited warranty. Color: Piano Black

My budget is about $300-$500 but I'm willing to flex a bit if it's worth the money. Does anyone any experience with these Acers? Any other good recommendations around this price range? Thanks for the help! Any input is appreciated.
