Re: In need of laptop recommendations

Hey all, I'm looking for a new laptop and was hoping I could get a few recommendations.

I've been using the following work issued laptop for a couple of years:
Dell Latitude 6430u
Intel Core i7
8GB, 64 bit Operating System
Windows 7

As I am now leaving my job, I require a personal laptop.

I will use it for:
- Gmail, Hotmail
- EF
- Facebook
- Internet surfing
- Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)

I am not:
- a Gamer,
- a serious photographer or
- a techie.

- I'm not a fan of HP, I don't like the curved shape and find them too bulky.
- I don't use MacBooks.
- I'd prefer to spend around about CHF 500.

I've been looking at the following Acer (currently reduced from CHF 899 to CHF 499):

Any others you could suggest: ASUS/Lenovo/Dell? I realize that CHF 500 isn't a big budget but it's what I'm willing to spend unless it's really worth it to stretch the budget further.

Many thanks in advance.
500 CHF is absolutely fine for a laptop that will allow you to do the tasks that you have listed but you'll get lots of replies on here saying you ought to spend 2500CHF on the latest Apple (or similar).
