Acer Aspire laptop build quality?

I need to replace a dead laptop (Compaq Evo n610c). BestBuy has this Acer on sale next week for $750. Although I'd prefer a more portable 14" model, any thoughts on this one? It seems pretty well configured (I know, integrated graphics but I'm not using it for gaming--mostly internet, document creation, some basic graphics, maybe some simple video editing/transfer). I'm most concerned about Acer's build quality and reliability. (I only buy a new 'puter when I have to, which is not frequently at all.) If not this model, I'll probably wait for a good deal on an HP dv2000, unless anyone has a better suggestion.

Here are the specs:

§ Intel® Centrino® Duo mobile technology with interrelated Intel® Core™ Duo processor T2350, Intel® 945GM Express chipset, Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network connection (802.11a/b/g) and extended battery life capability
§ 2GB PC2-4200 DDR2 memory for multitasking power, expandable to 4GB; 533MHz frontside bus, 2MB L2 cache and 1.73GHz processor speed
§ SuperMulti DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support records up to 8.5GB of data or 4 hours of video using compatible DVD+R DL media; also supports DVD-RAM
§ 15.4" WXGA TFT-LCD widescreen display with CrystalBrite technology and 1280 x 800 resolution
§ 160GB hard drive [no speed given--anyne know if it's 5400 rpm?]
§ Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950 with up to 224MB of shared memory; Intel® High Definition Audio; S-video out
§ 5-in-1 media reader supports Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO and xD-Picture Card
§ 4 high-speed USB 2.0 ports
§ Weighs 6.4 lbs. and measures just 1.4" thin for portable power
§ Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium operating system preinstalled

Thoughts? Seems like it wouldn't be much heavier/bulkier than the Dell Latitude D610 I'm stuck with from work.
