Summary: I got an Acer Aspire 5820TG about one and a half years ago. It was my first laptop, before i had a very old desktop, and it hasn't given me any problems at all. It has a bog 600gb hard drive with an i5 intel core and it has some very handy features that make it very power efficient. It also comes with a good price but i would not buy it if you are mainly going to use it for gaming. But apart from that i would highly recommend it.
Summary: I must admit ... at first i thought i got nasty ole lemon ... i was on the verge of returning the bloody thing to AMAZON, but hated the thought of being without a laptop to get my work done, as i had already given away my old one when i got this one ... the machine would freeze, go blank, and restart ...
Summary: Bought this for my niece as her first laptop when she was out of work and didn't have a PC to do on-line applications. She has learned a lot using it and so far it hasn't suffered from the heat and humidity when her A/C went out for most the very hot summer. Other than some user inabilities on both our parts, I believe this was a good laptop for the money.
Summary: I have and ACER laptop that I purchased several years ago but the CD drive failed and replacing it proved difficult. I needed a new one primarily for internet access. After reading the reviews on this model I decided to purchase one. I am very satisfied with this PC and would recommend it as a good value. I have other ACER products and I am very satisfied with them as well.
Summary: First, note that the machine ships with the maximum clock speed set to 1200 MHz. Use the BIOS or other configuration utility to increase this to the full 1600 MHz when on AC power, and the CPU is only SLIGHTLY underpowered. It's still a huge step up from something like an Atom netbook, and not much behind a dual-core Intel at the same clock speed.
Summary: This laptop has all the great features at a very affordable price. It performs very well and has a stunning display. It also has HDMI, which is nice. It's very lightweight and fairly thin. The only negative I can find is that it doesn't have indicators for caps and num lock. All and all, it's very nice and I would recomend it. I've already purchased 2 myself and recomended it to a couple friends who love theirs as well. Had no problems at all with any of them.
Summary: This laptop is what you expect to get, even though i was a little skeptical cuz of some reviews I read before, i finally decided for this one, most of all because I didnt have enough to pay for another one. Anyways, it is totally what the descriptions says, it was worth the buying, the HD LED screen looks just great it was more than i expected. If you're gonna use it for simple things just like connecting to the internet and playing movies it will fit you perfectly..
Summary: I replaced my Toshiba Satellite ($600+ laptop)with this computer and it seems comparable, if not better in some ways. Yeah, the mouse button is a little hard to click, but you get used to that pretty quick. My only suggestion, however, is do not follow Mojoman's advice. When i put the additional memory in, it crashed and bluescreened out multiple times. The computer would not stay on for more than a few moments.
Summary: At first, i was wondering if this laptop would not be fast enough to handle what i needed to do. I ordered this laptop to be able to surf the web, some music, youtube, and light gaming ( older games ). This laptop exceeded my expectations. It has a Duel-Core 1.6Ghz procceser, which is a step down from my desktop's 2.8Ghz Dual core... Yet, this laptop is still very responsive. If your hoping to be able to play any current games on this laptop, then no.
Summary: You won't read about these on Acer's website, and perhaps I'm a bit nitpicky when it comes to computer aesthetics, but the machine runs just fine. Durability is a tossup these days, so I'll skip all that and give you one or two quirks about the computer. These are the things that I notice immediately when I buy a new machine, so hopefully it will help you out. Pros: -The full numerical pad is welcome. A lot of laptops don't have this feature and I find it useful.
