I am interested in purchasing a netbook for school. I need help on deciding which is better between Acer and Gateway. The Acer is $299(1GB ram 250 hard drive up to 10 hours battery life. The Gateway is $269 (1GB ram 250 hard drive up to 8 hours battery life). Need help deciding on the better brand.
If it were I choosing between the 2, I'd probably go with the Acer. I haven't really heard any complaints about the their netbooks, hence they seem to be of quality, at least in the short term. Plus, you're getting 2 more hours of battery life.
