This is my new Acer Aspire S7. About the same weight as the MacBook Air that I will be retiring, but 13" instead of 11." I didn't go all out like I did on the Air, after realizing that I really don't need desktop power on my laptop. I settled for a 3rd generation i5 processor with 4GM RAM and a 128 Raid 0 Solid State Drive. Been using it all morning. Plenty fast enough. Near instant resume and very fast boot from cold start.
Despite running Windows on the Air, it was never as clean as running it native. Especially awkward was the often embarrassingly slow resume from sleep mode.
So, I did a lot of internet research and hands-on at Fry's and Best Buy before ordering it on Amazon.
That's all for now. Happy Holidays to all my faithful readers. :)
