    Shopping for Laptops

    As the holiday season approaches many people begin to think about exactly how to work people's needs and wants into a reasonable financial framework.

The ability to remain mobile and continue with all the work that is necessary is an important competitive and organizational edge, yet laptops do not tend to come on the cheap. Here are a few of the best deals in laptops as you begin to check off names on the shopping list.

    Acer Aspire

    The Acer Aspire series is usually known for being at the very top of the cheap laptop banner, and this extends to more than just one of their models. The Acer Aspire 5738 PG is usually around $785, and is well known because of its stability and inclusion of a real touch screen. You are not going to really be able to do any serious gaming on it and you will likely have to plug it in most of the time, but this is perfect for those working in business and financial sectors. The Acer Aspire 2820 T Timeline is an even cheaper laptop at an area around $600. Since the Acer Aspire 2820 T Timeline is so tiny and little in terms of weight this is going to be perfect for a mobile student, especially since the battery can usually last quite a while. Again, you are not really going to have great gaming on here.
