Excerpt: I purchased this laptop computer a few months ago for a long trip I was taking. Ended up using it all the time because it is fast, eary to use and light weight (can go anywhere). The battery life is outstanding (about 3 hours under normal use). The software was pre loaded and works great. Also the WiFi has worked excellent every where I traveled. The value was outstanding since I paid under $500, I am very satisfied with this computer.
Excerpt: I purchased this laptop for my then 7 year old daughter as a Christmas present. Really it was for me, so she would get off my computer! Ha!! Anyway, it was fine the first year. On the second year, the Cd Rom got jammmed and it still stuck to this day. We have tried everything to get it to open. I'm not spendin gthe money to have it fixed b/c the cost of repair would be as much as the laptop. After that incident, the computer just quit.
Excerpt: Excellent computer for the price. I am a graduate student and this computer fit into my budget. I use this computer everyday and I have never regretted getting it. It doesn't have all the fancy extras that some computers have, but for the average user, most of those aren't necessary anyway. It is light enough that I take it with me everywhere I go. The battery life isn't the best but considering the price, it isn't much of a sacrifice.
Excerpt: This is the second Acer laptop we have owned, and by far the best, for the price. It is one of the least expensive models, and a few years old, now. However we did have some trouble with it and the process to have it repaired was quick and painless, for the most part. The particluar problem was with the power cord outlet. Evidently it had to be replaced because the pin broke off in it.
The Acer Aspire laptop is a well rounded computer.

Excerpt: My husband bought me the Acer Aspire 4720Z for Christmas this last year. I must say that this laptop was the best present he could have bought me. This laptop is not very expensive (between $400 and $500) and it is an excellent laptop! It is lightweight and very easy to take with you. The screen is 14.1" which is a great size for a laptop.
Excerpt: I love my laptop! It was a great price. It's fast and easy to use. The Signal Up wireless antenna is great. I will never go back to a desktop computer again. I can't say enough great things about it. The only negative is the battery only last about 2 hours on the power setting I use but you can customize your own power setting for longer battery life.

Excerpt: I bought the Acer Aspire 4720Z Laptop Computer back in February last year. It was great while it working. I could surf the Web, send and receive e-mails Everything seemed to be going fine until earlier this year when suddenly the screen went blank and the unit wouldn't download! Tried several times and nothing could be done. So I had no other choices but to have the thing looked at and repaired. Found out that the hard drive had crashed and had to be replaced!
The Acer Aspire 4720Z is a good quality, low cost laptop.

Excerpt: I have owned my Acer Aspire 4720 for 7 months now and have experienced only one major flaw. At times when I plug in the power cord to keep the battery charged, the computer doesn't always recognize that it is plugged in. In other words, the battery light which should turn green when the cord is plugged in, remains orange for a period of time. Sometimes it takes as long as ten minutes to recognize that the cord is plugged in.
Excerpt: Bought this back in Sept. 2009. after having for only a few months I started having problems with the screen flickering & then going white/blank. Since it was still under warranty I sent it back to Acer to be repaired. It took 3 tries before finally getting it back & having the problem solved. Everything went fine for awhile , then the same problem started again. This time it was not under warranty. Emailed Acer & over a week later have still not heard back from them.
Excerpt: Acer has introduced a series of laptops under the Aspire model. I had purchased this Acer 4720Z around 6 months back. The reason why i got this one was mainly due to the style and looks that this product has.
