Need help deciding on Laptop purchase

Acer Aspire 5517-5671 notebook

Specs: Windows 7, 3 GB DDR2 667 SDRAM
Salesman at P.C. Richard & Son told me this machine has a dual core processor (AMD Athlon 64 but when I looked at Acer web site and exact model, it says it's an "AMD Athlon 64 Single-Core Processor TF-20". Does anyone know if this will be enough to run about 3 programs at a time?

You didn't post specs.

Depends on programs. Most windows programs can only be used one at a time for the most part. That relies more on ram to hold your data between windows.

CPU and the graphics card tend to be needed more for complex tasks such as games, edits to video and audio, database or complex photo edits or cad programs.

Post the model.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
