Acer Aspire E1 (471) Starts at P22,400 in the Philippines
While it won’t wow the power-user crowd, Acer’s 14-inch laptop promises good capability at a price suitable for students and others with limited budgets.
The Acer Aspire E1 is available in the Philippines at two price points: ₱22,400 if you opt for one with Linux pre-installed, or ₱24,900 for the Windows 7 Home Basic flavor.
It has a 14-inch 1366 x 768 screen, which is pretty standard for laptops of the E1′s size nowadays. The card-reader accepts SD, MMC and even Memory Stick cards, so budding photographers should have no problems saving their images.
