    I would have loved an Apple, my brother has worked for them from the beginning, needless to say he has a daughter named Lisa. Anyway, Apple limits some of the FB gaming I do with Flash etc... My Brother does understand. lol

    My Sony Vaio cost well over 1000 years ago and this ASUS is amazingly faster, lighter etc.... you know how that is, technology goes far in a matter of just a couple years. So I am a happy camper again.
    Yeah, ASUS is a good brand. But the dual processor thingee is for your son, not you. LOL. But yeah, can't beat that for 399. Good choice!

    Flash works on any apple computer. It's only the ipad/iphone/itouch that it doesn't work on - and it's just on the mobile Safari version (browser that comes with ipad/iphone/itouch) that comes with it. You can always install a different browser or go on a streaming site to get flash to work but it's too much of a hassle.

    And yeah, @JAKEISGREAT , there's tons of stuff you can do on the iPad. I've been mooning over the tiny projector that I can use with the iPad... and there's the credit card scanner that can also go on the iPad... last month I first used the airline thingee on my iPhone (can't remember what it was called) - where I just scan my boarding pass using my phone's camera and it tells me the status of the flight - like if it's delayed or something... really cool stuff. My friend has the one where he can scan barcodes with his iPhone and see if there's a coupon or some sale going on somewhere for that product - or at least that's what he told me it does.

    Uhmm... can you tell I'm an apple fan? LOL.

    @anatess..my hubby uses that barcode thing all the time! There's a new app I saw where you can scan a paint color you like from anywhere..on a house..or anywhere and it will give you the shades closest to it available at Behr paints. Amazing..we have a keyboard for iPad..never used it..

    Yeah, I have the keyboard too and used it like once or twice only. I took to the touch-keyboard on the iPhone pretty easily and the iPad even has bigger keys so I never had problems typing on it. And I make lots of documents on my iPad. I had to tweak the auto-spell-checker though because a lot of times, I'm typing away and not notice that it changed my words to something else!

    Gotta go check out the Behr paint! I'm gonna love that!

    I guess if I had an I-phone I would know the benefits of the apps ect.... I just haven't taken that step yet. Everyone says I need to since my phone is ready for an upgrade. I am just cheap.

    The great part about this computer DA DA DA DAAAAAAAAA

    We have an empty nest, that means no CRAP will be downloaded on this and this is ALLLLLLL mine.

    Always with me

    I do know a fair amount in regards to computers. That said you will get 500 different responses in a forum like this as to what you should or should not buy. My advice to you is to go down to your local computer store ( try to avoid big box stores whose employees work on commission) and tell them what you need from a computer and your price range. Allot of the smaller stores may even be able to build you exactly what you need in your price range.

    Good luck.

    Well I used to be in the computer business and my wife is also a computer administrator were she works, and if you are looking for a laptop or notebook you are not getting a quality computer for $400.00. You get what you pay for.
    Have a Great Bully Day.
