It'll do the job, but it won't have the speed or lifetime of say, a Macbook.

Yea I pretty much guessed that this $250 acer wont compare to a $1000 macbook.
Is it worth the money though?
I currently am using this:

Will this new one be any faster?

That will do the job, low RPM on the harddrive, but it's still very good for the use you intend it for. Don't get a macbook.

MacBooks run a lot smoother, and have a larger battery life,and essentially virus-free. What's wrong with them?

Don't get an acer, IMO they are junk, just invest in a laptop that is over 700 bucks and you are pretty much guaranteed quality.

Acer & Gateway IMO blows.

Dell, HP, etc are good. I have a dell studio 17 and it is pretty kick ass
