Summary: I have used this for close to a year now. still love it. plays open world games on med settings. around 15 fps. which is workable. this is a perfect computer for anyone who dose not wont to spend 1000.00.
Summary: I bought this laptop refurbed a while back and I have never regretted it. Most bloatware has been removed from a refurb model. I put a good antivirus software and it works soo well. Loads quick, great webcam, plays Sims3 with add-ons very well.
Summary: I've had no problems out of this computer so far! The Radeon Graphics are excellent and I from what I've read this computer is an excellent gaming machine! I also have A HP Laptop but I prefer using this one more! The screen is the perfect size because I like big Gigantic Screens...LOL!

Summary: This is light weight but at the expense of durability. Room for two hard drives which is a deal breaker for me, i have one SSD for boot and one for data. Windows 7 experience index are all above 6, with cpu being 6.8, but this cpu is not designed for graphic intense applications, it scored really...
Summary: I wanted a windows 7, 17 inch laptop and due to procrastination missed buying an Acer with intel chip. I couldn't find a Windows 7 machine until I came across this deal. Wasn't too turned off by the ADM chip set as my last laptop was an ADM.
Summary: My wife is going back to college and needed a laptop to handle graphic art editing. I figured she would need at least a quad core CPU and a higher end GPU to efficiently run the necessary programs. I bought her this refurb after reading the specs and positive user reviews.
Summary: We needed a "moveable" computer for use at home. This 17" Acer is HUGE; nothing you'd want to carry around regularly, but it's perfect for what we wanted. The display is big, bright and crisp with intense colors. It actually looks better than the Samsung 19" monitor connected to my desktop.
