    looks like it is a good price.
    [color=#483d8b]i'm really not familier with us/canadian conversions, but a quick glance on
    ebay shows that computers with a slower processor are going for what i think is about that price.
    [color=#483d8b]even if you arn't comfortable buying off ebay, i highly suggest checking out their computer section and comparing prices, so you can see what different ones are going for.

    Mu daughter has an Acer, she likes it. It was on sale at Wal Mart for $500. I'm thinking $850 Canadian is a good price.

    I bought my son a rather extravagent bd present last year but that was becuse he would use it in university. I got him an Acer laptop and paid about 700 for it. He's very happy with it. When my dd turns 19 next year, I'll probably go for another Acer.
