Question

Posted

I am somewhat in need of a new laptop to take notes at school with . . . I also want something like a kindle (or reasonable sized tablet(?)) for e-books . . .

 

Ultrabook:

  • 11-14 inches
  • 2-~4 pounds
  • I have a little bit of scoliosis . . .  not too heavy, but not too light that I hate the thing anyway.
  • I may want to do some light gaming on it (anything from about 2007 or before shouldn't be much of a issue, should it?)
  • Less than $550 if possible (I'm sure it isn't considering the SSD)
  • Good keyboard, no Chiclet sort of keys (?) - I somewhat hate and slower on typing on flatter keys.
  • I do NOT want an optical drive
  • What else should I consider?

E-book reader

  • Large enough storage (4+ Gigs I'd think)
  • Reasonable screen size (5+ inches?)
  • Reasonable battery life
  • What else should I consider?

You can read e-books on your laptop, you know? You don't need a Ebook reader to read them.

Yes but It could still be nice to have a small(er) screen for reading books at night or in a car instead of from a laptop that may not always be able to get an internet connection.

Anyone of experince with the Acer Aspire S5-391-6836 it seems like a nice ultrabook, seems to have a good processor (i5). For the price it seems like it should come with at lest some bit of hard drive space (not only a SSD) or more RAM. It's light enough, good enough processor, decent GPU, if it's still purchasble in a few weeks/months I may try to get this.
