I have done thorough research and compared this with other similarly-priced products from Toshiba, Dell, Asus (2 of them), and HP. This Acer is definitely the BEST one of the five 15.6" in the $200-$250 price range. All five have the same basic specs (Celeron / 500GHz / 4GB / 500GB) but the below specs give this an edge over the others.PROS:USB 3.0- Dell doesn't have it, the rest do.- Acer has one port.Bluetooth- Only Toshiba has it, the rest don't.- Acer has..
