$250, no tax, free shipping. Brand new.

Will be used for web browsing and watching YouTube. Listening to music. Playing old games from GOG.

Just a nice little computer to use around the house!

It should be okay for that. I mean it is an acer...but it is also 250 bucks. It's quite hard to argue with. I've actually been looking at one of these low end things for a writing machine. If you get it let me know how you like it!

It will even struggle to play youtube videos in 720p.

I don't think so, my netbook has an E-350 @ 1.6ghz and it's much weaker than that CPU. I can watch youtube videos in 720p no problem, so he should be fine.

Seems very poor, especially when 70 dollars more gets you a I-7 4770k.

^ It's for an entire N2830-based laptop. Obviously he's not going to pay $250 for a Celeron processor...

Heads on straight, my girlfriend's beautiful, looks pretty good to me

He's looking at a laptop, not just a processor.
