Summary: I purchased this laptop on behalf of my dad. Hes not very tech savvy and doesnt need it much except for lots of internet and word processing. The price was great for what we got. It has a nice big screen which is perfect for him. Its been a few months now and its have proven to be pretty durable. I would definitely consider buying another one for myself.
Summary: GREAT COMPUTER FOR MY HOME NEEDS! THIS IS MY SECOND PURCHASE OF THIS ACER ASPIRE 5253 COMPUTER FROM AMAZON.COM, AND I USE IT AS MY BACK UP OR FOR OUT OF HOME USE. FIELD TEST, WORKS GREAT WITH NO PROBLEMS!!
Summary: I am not very computer savy so I did some research & went with the advice of my computer "handyman". It was advice well taken - perfect for my needs. I heard that an HP is better for people with kids who hammer the computer daily and is a couple bucks extra. I also heard that Acers with lower quality than I bought aren't worth saving the extra couple of bucks on. If you're looking for something between a Honda and a Hundai, this is perfect.
Summary: It's my first official laptop and I love it dearly. I remove some softwares that I think is irrelevant. I plan to buy a new battery as I need longer batter storage (it's 3 hours or more currently). The sound is low, I wish there was something I could do to alter that, but I won't mess with it. It's a pretty decent laptop for someone who just want to do basic things.
Summary: I was looking for a good laptop that was cheap enough for a college budget so after searching through Amazon I had found this one and it fits the bill! The only thing that sucks is the speakers seriously you are going to want to buy a new set instead of using the ones they offer. The webcam is high def that is nice when you want to video chat with friends, family and anyone else you know.
