CRAP, now to repeat it so my Acer Aspire 5100 can hear it. CRAP. Oh wait! I forgot. That thing cant see it because the processor and RAM get completely overwhelmed by the simplest of programs, like Internet Explorer.The CD/DVD drive doesnt work. The right click button was too small, so it has kind of buried itself into the computer, also not working. Vista requires 2 GB of RAM. Like EVERY computer will hold that much, because this one does not. Because there are two different hard drives, you get about 60 GB in the main one and the rest in the other. The function key malfunctions more or less "when it feels like it." Even typing is a challenge. If often decides to shut down on its own. I dont really think the fan works because it always overheats. As a media player, it fails epicly. iTunes and/ or other media player, including online media streaming and this laptop will make your music and video sound like your dragging the disk along a record player. Starting up and shutting down take FOREVER. When I do start it up, the screen decides to go blue first and then a whiter shade. It often makes this loud beep sound when it isnt responding to your input that scares the bijeebers out of you. It seems that after about a year, a special timer goes off that sets out to ruin you laptop you paid hundreds of $$$s for. IF YOU WANT TO BUY THIS PIECE OF CRAP CALLED A LAPTOP, MAKE SURE WINDOWS TASK MANAGER WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Otherwise, enjoy that piece of crap...
