Recently, my acer laptop broke because of the charging plug on the back of the laptop. It broke off on the board and it really caused so problems for me because we only have 1 other computer in the house which is a desktop. I had to buy another computer with our tax refund and although Acer brand computers are not bad, I did not want another one so I bought a Sony Vaio instead and now I'm using it to update all my blogs. Eventually I'll have to get the Acer fixed and I'll give it to my son to use but this Sony is pretty nice.
