Bear these thoughts in mind when buying and using notebook PCs.

Consider the travel weight. Compare travel weights, not system weights. That's the notebook (system weight) plus the power adapter (typically 0.75 pounds). For one-drive systems, add an expansion slice for the optical drive (2 to 3 pounds). If the vendor quoted the weight with a weight-saver bezel (translation: a blank plate in place of the optical drive) you may have to add the weight of an internal CD or DVD drive (0.5 pounds).

Don't get hung up on small weight differences. What really counts is the total weight of the bag you sling over your shoulder. On its own, a 5-pound notebook with a nice screen and two drives weighs 25 percent more than a 4-pound system with a smaller screen, smaller keys, and no DVD drive. But notebook bags weigh 2 to 5 pounds and all your other stuff (power adapter, cell phone, music player, paper documents, and paperback novel) adds 2 to (gulp) 10 pounds. A heavier notebook might add an a ...more

While buying laptop one must see all these points-
1 Your need for laptop (means for general office work, for designing or for entertainment).
2 Your budget for buying (if u have much amount then go for latest technology or good brand)
3 Your circumstances- You are going to travel much or not.(According to that- Choose the features like-wieght,screen size,battery backup etc.)
4 Last thing is add on features like- Dvd burner,Ram size,HDD Capacity,Processor speed,most important Graphic cards etc.

In my opinon ACER is providing good Features versus Value. Their Aspire series 5633 and 9300 series are multipurpose use according to user & economical as well.
