8 gigs ? ... wow ..... ;-)

Seriously (assuming that one does, in fact, get at least a little more than 
8 gigs of storage) that looks to be quite inviting. What was the general 
feeling about this from you (knowledgeable) people ?

My usual supplier doesn't have a very high opinion of Acer. About 12 months 
ago I purchased a 2nd hand Acer laptop through her, and she was at great 
pains to point out that the particular machine I was purchasing dated from 
*before* Acer started making rubbish.

My old linux desktop is starting to get a little shaky, and I suspect that 
I'll soon be in the market for a new linux box (doesn't have to be 
desktop) - though I'll probably opt for a 64-bit architecture. Cheap and 
reliable is what I'll be looking for. Any advice welcome.
