I also didn't mention that It's a netbook. Since when are they a "reasonably powerful macbook alternative"? Yes, most netbooks are cheaper than most laptops. This I will readily admit.
Your personal preferences aside, Acer, to the best of my knowledge, is fairly highly rated as far as quality and support goes. It's also currently one of the best price/performance ratio laptops out there.
I've seen it online for less than $700.
