Acer

Despite her sultry looks and boxing gloves, she isn't going to punch you in the face when you pop by the Acer booth, so don't be shy/scared!

Starting things is the 14-inch Acer Aspire 4743G notebook with a Intel Core i5-480M (2.66GHz), 4GB RAM, 640GB HDD and NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M discrete graphics, all for the cool cheap price $899.

Next up, we have the 15.6-inch Acer Aspire 5742 with its Intel Core i5-480M (2.66GHz) processor, Intel HD graphics, 2GB RAM and 500GB HDD, all for just $799.

Going even lower with a $699 price tag is the 14-inch Acer Aspire 4783Z with its Intel Pentium (yes, stop gasping) P6200 (2.13GHz) processor. It's almost as cheap as a netbook, but its performance will be much better. It sports Intel HD graphics, 2GB RAM and 500GB HDD.

Jumping back up in price, we have the more premium Acer models - the13.3-inch Acer Aspire Timeline X 3820TG with its Intel Core i5-480M (2.66GHz) processor, 4GB RAM, 750HDD and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 for a cool $1298 price.

If you want something more modern though, then the Acer Aspire 5750 with its Intel Sandy Bridge Core i5-2410M (2.3GHz) processor will definitely appeal. For just $999 the 15.6-inch notebook has 2GB RAM, 500GB HDD and Intel HD Graphics 3000. If you're willing to top it up to $1198, then you can get a 14-inch model with the same processor, 4GB RAM, 640GB HDD and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M.

If power computing isn't required but mobility is, then a netbook is probably what you have in mind. The 10.1-inch Aspire Acer one Happy/Slim AOD255 packs Intel's N550 (1.50GHz) processor, Intel GMA 3150, 1GB RAM and 250GB HDD all for just a measly $449. Cheap? You betcha.

Looking for something less mobile? The 21.5-inch Acer Aspire Z3730 may be to your taste then with its low price of $999. It packs an Intel Pentium E6800 (3.33GHz) processor, 2GB RAM and 500GB HDD.

If an All-in-One machine isn't what you want, then the Acer Aspire X3960 with its Intel Core i3-2100 (3.1GHz), 20-inch monitor, 2GB RAM, 500GB HDD and NVIDIA GeForce G420 graphics for the price of just $1099 may seem like a pretty good deal.

Kicking ass and chewing bubble gum never goes out of style, so the Acer Aspire G5910 with its $1999 price tag may seem expensive at first, but you're getting an Intel Core i7-2600 (3.3GHz) processor, 6GB RAM, 1.5TB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GT 440 graphics and a 23-inch LED monitor. Oh yes please.

If you're looking for something other than computers, or maybe you want to get a second monitor for your desktop, then why not give the Acer HS244 a shot? This 24-inch 3D LCD monitor has VGA and 2 HDMI ports, while also packing built-in speakers. It has a 2ms response time and a 12,000,000:1 contrast ratio and will cost you just $399. Throw in another $129 for a pair of 3D glasses and you're all set.
