Default Acer Aspire Timeline

The 13.3" laptop appeals to me. Anyone know if its a yay or nay. I want to know some real people experience and opinion on this lappy. It seems to be perfect for what I want and only around $800. Thank you.

Acer is not great but many companies are churning out laptops based on that proc (the CULV Core Solo and Duo), which will mostly be similar in price. I am really interested in them since they will be bringing the low consumption and weight of the ultra expensive ULV to the consumer market (hence the CULV name - Consumer Ultra Low Voltage ), while staying comfortably ahead of Netbooks performance wise. This could be the next big thing in laptops IMO. Hello 1kUS$ X300-like PCs, finally.
