Full Spec from ACER website - note this model varies so check spec before buying if you are interested.
ie: different size hard drives - some have DDR2 RAM - some have DDR3 RAM.

The only thing this lacks is a web-cam but you could use a USB plug in one - fairly cheap to buy. Why this particular model doesn't include one I don't know.
