Until mid February, I'd been using a Acer Ferrai 4000 laptop for about a year.  It was a great laop top - fast, rliable and it had a large screen.  But, I had borrowed it from our lab when my old laptop died and I just didn't have time to order a new one and set it up - until now.

There are many very nice laptops on the market today - the choice was tough, but I decided to stick with the Acer Ferrari line and orded an Acer Ferrari 5000.
