Re: Notebook computer for cruising

Acer Aspire One 522-BZ623

Win 7 Starter
Open CPN
Open Office
Grib readers (2 of them)

I bought an external optical drive to load CDs, etc.. I leave it at home.


Downside - I cannot adjust screen resolution so one of my teaching programs is only visible on an projector or TV screen - not fatal.
