I am wondering how would Vista perform with 512MB RAM ?

fine. all the visual candy will be toned down or turned off, but completely useable.

I think this one is much better for few $$ more.
Gateway ML3706 $499 after $100 Rebate + Free Printer

I forgot to mention, that if you live near a B&M store you can save an additional $100 by signing up for their Credit Card, making the laptop only $350 after a $50 rebate.

I found a complete service manual for this Laptop:

does anybody still buy Celeron? Why?

It seems Acer preloaded lots of programs which slow down the speed. Therefore I may stay away fro Celeron, which is no as fast.

The Celeron in this computer is actually based on the latest core, Yonah, and performs great for ordinary use.

this deal is back $449-50mir=$399

buy instore and sign up for the $100 credit card $399-$100=$299+ tax

that's all i had to go on.. if you bought one and confirmed differently, say so.

If you apply for the credit card do they compare that to any ID or warranty info you have to fill out in store?I really don't want to share my details with MC but I do like the $100 savings.

edit-I ordered one for local pickup but had to cancel when I found out that this does NOT have a line in jack, just a microphone jack.
