  • Excerpt: I purchased two of these laptops a few Christmases ago for some siblings. For their time period, they’re very decent computers. In terms of hardware performance, I’ve really had no problem.

It's a pretty good laptop. Mine has lasted well two years :)

  • Excerpt: Overall, the Acer Aspire 5520 is a pretty good laptop. Battery life leaves something to be desired, but otherwise it hasn't caused me any problems.I like the fact that it has an internet button... really comes in handy. Also, the scoll bar works better on this laptop than do the ones on many other laptops I've experienced. It wasn't very expensive (got mine for $400) and works just as well as other laptops twice the price.

This computer is complete junk

  • Excerpt: This computer is absolute junk! We bought it because it was inexpensive but thank goodness we sprung for the extended warranty!!! The computer has had so many issues! The harddrive failed within 6 months. The geek squad said that it always fails in this computer and was designed to only last a few months. Well, it's now failed twice in less than 2 years. Beyond that, the mouse is ultra sensitive and causes your typing to jump and skip all over the place.

Nice computer, runs linux with a lot of work

  • Excerpt: Sorry about the typo, it should be 'Aspire' but I didn't notice it until too late.We got this machine at a discount because Vista wouldn't boot. No problem, because the intent was to put linux on it and use it for a traveling machine. We tried a number of linux distributions including running from live CDs, ultimately settling on slackware -- the only one that would start and run reliably.

Take a word of advice, do not invest in this!

  • Excerpt: This was the first lap top I purchased, and foolishly bought it just because it was on sale. I have had so many problems with it...sometimes the keys stick..the hinge came loose, and then had to send it out to the acer company to get it fixed because the motherboard came loose from something. It took weeks to get it back..but a plus is when you call their company, they are very friendly, maybe that is just to make up for a worthless product.

  • Excerpt: This last Christmas, my husband and oldest daughter decided to get me a laptop. When I opened up the package, I was so happy. I knew the Acers were rated near the top in computers, but I could not wait to see if it worked out that way …

Excellent even after 3+ years

  • Excerpt: "...explorer its away again. Looks: The Acer has a very nice glass like exterior but when you upon it up it looks old and out dated. On the other hand it sits comfortably in your lap or on a desk. Also it has a good wrist support and nice feel to the keys. The mouse pad was responsive when I got the laptop originally but now it has some issues of freezing or randomly clicking on things at the most inappropriate times. Value for money: Overall I think ...
  • Pros: Still serves me proud after 3 +  years, quick and simple to use .
  • Cons: Easily max out the hard drive space

A good choice for a budget laptop

  • Excerpt: If you want a cheap laptop what's capable of running all the necessary software at your home or small office, Acer Aspire 5520 is excellent suited for you. Running on an AMD Turion 64 x2 processor, 2 gigabytes of RAM and a GeForce 7000M, it's enough to run Windows Vista and Seven smoothly with several tasks opened.
  • Pros: Reliability
