My 2 year old Acer AOD250 isn't charging... Time for an upgrade?
I bought the refurbed Acer on woot a couple years back and quite enjoy it. The other day though I noticed it wasn't charging. Even when off, the charge light only stays lit for about 5 seconds. Been troubleshooting, so far to no avail. I've considered it may be the battery, but I'd rather not go through the hassle of getting a new one only to find out that's not the problem. Regardless, this got me thinking; maybe it's time to upgrade?
This is where I need your help.
I'm looking for something similar in size (+/-10.1"), preferably with a better processor and battery life (in a perfect world, I know), somewhere in the $300 neighborhood. Also, I'd love to hear personal feedback from owners. Probably one of the bigger deciding factors in my book.
P.S. Even if you don't have upgrade recommendations, I'd love to hear any thoughts on how to get it charged, if only temporarily. I'm worried there isn't enough battery life as-is to do a full backup. c.c"
