Re: Notebook computer for cruising
I've had good luck with my ACER 1410. Take it on the boat and whenever I go traveling. Did have to replace the battery after a couple of years of heavy use, but replacement was less than $40 on Amazon. Light (about 3 lbs), 11.6" screen, dual-core processor, and runs Win7 Home Premium 64-bit. Models have changed since then, but they still make similar machines. I'd buy another similar one if this one died.
