Summary: This is my second unit Acer 5515. The first one came back from the brink of death to perform well..so I learnt how to restore it and how to get around issues without panicking...so I decided to get another one, because it really does everything that I need from a laptop, and is very reliable. The used unit that I just got is fine, and I do feel that it is a great laptop for the average user...like ...me. I have been using mine everyday for 12 hours for a few years.
Excerpt: For years I wanted a laptop so I could have the enjoyment of going outside or sitting on the couch to watch TV while still being with my family. So my husband bought me the Acer Aspire 5515 laptop . I had to admit I was very excited and thrill about having a laptop but since than I have changed my mind and this is the reason way. To start the Acer Aspire 5515 continues to overheat itself and is constantly shutting down on me.
Excerpt: This acer aspire 5515 is no good. I thought i would do better and purchase a computer with more memory plus it came with a web cam and turns out i was wrong. It runs slow all the time and it freezes, plus half the keys have completely fallen off and its not even a year old.
Excerpt: I got this Acer aspire 5515 laptop for 300.00 because it was a reconditioned model. It is fast and very nice, no blemishes. lots of extras that were not on other models for the same price. It had a 90 day warranty. I would recommend this laptop for anyone who is just an average computer user.
This is an outstanding laptop--well worth the money.

Excerpt: i have owned my acer for about a year and a half, the first year it worked great then all of a sudden boom. i cant download anything. half the time when i try to print it gets lost in translation or something. i bought the mcaphee security protection plan but the computer will not open it it just fizzles and fades away.it started out really great for the price now i just want to smack it against a wall.
Excerpt: I got my Acer 5515 about 2 years ago for $350 at Best Buy. The first problem I had was the ctrl key on the right side fell off. Apparently, this is a common occurance. Otherwise, it has kept up with average use. Travel or use by kids, might be a problem.
Excerpt: this laptop is a decnt laptop, it works well but it has gotten very sluggish, this model features windows vista which is good, but its cpu should have been allittle faster for the vista, i have found a few problems with it the batter will not hold a charge for more than 10 minutes, even with it only being 6 months old and i had gotten a virus on the computer which took a toll on the computer, but i tried to find software for this specific computer(recovery disc) and...
Excerpt: I'm not a big fan of Vista that came preloaded on the computer, it often slows down my computer. Microsoft once caused a problem when it did an update. Once it updated and I went to turn the computer back on it would not load up. I contacted acer and they stepped me through how to get it working again. I haven't had a problem since then.
