hm... gimme a link on that Acer Aspire if you have it. My main box *is* an Acer Aspire, and it's been solid for 9 years. Ram upgraded 4 < 8, a few years back ($50). It took a little convincing to go with Acer Aspire (I wanted Sony or Toshiba, because I've had good luck repairing Toshibas in my prior career). Might look up the E15. Digging around Amazon deals...
Not sure what your price range is, but this week I specced (for someone looking for a cheap but decent laptop) an Acer i5 with 4GB laptop for $350 at Fry's. Add'l 4GB from Crucial was ~$30. They do ship if you don't have one local. If Fry's would be an option for you, sign up for their email list. Also reddit has https://www.reddit.com/r/LaptopDeals.

$0-500 search is here

omg this link will not display right

Concise @Concise

I had the E15. Fell apart on me after 2 1/2 years. Actually I'm using it right now as a desktop with a usb keyboard because the frame fell apart and it's no longer portable. my stats are a bit different than tjhat laptop, it has an SSD and 8gb ram. but the build quality is terrible IME. never getting an acer again.

I just got this from this same seller: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Precision-M2800-15-6-Laptop-i7-Gen-4-8GB-RAM-256GB-SSD-2GB-FirePro/202603325897?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

very nice laptop, great build quality. it's not new but mine came looking pretty much new, even some of the plastic was still on and the battery is in excellent shape (obv ymmv with used batteries). it definitely wasn't used much. it's a bit heavier and it gets hot, not that hot but if you ever lay down with it and have it on you you definitely need some clothes on lol. it's been awesome so far. really the build quality is no comparison to the acer. this thing could fuck someone up if you needed to use it as a weapon for sure

caveats: it has no camera and doesn't come with a power pack. what i did was buy the docking station with a power pack for $20 (oh yeah, you can dock it! really useful)

it also has a decent gaming gpu
Concise @Concise this is a killer deal. Nm what I said if sub-$300 i7 laptops are to be had on ebay, I would explore that.
