Great laptop for the price - why buy a netbook?

AS, Amazon
25 March 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this laptop from another retailer for about 100 dollars less (after rebates) than amazon. I was looking for a netbook or a 12.1 laptop to take to class and came across this machine. I had never heard of the E350 processor before but apparently it's been getting great reviews with 2 of the highly rated 12.1 models from Lenovo and HP both using it. It's a dual core, so don't be confused by the 1.6 GHz, which means it's really a 3.2 GHz processor.

Exceeded My Expectations

  • Summary: I've only had this one 4 days. Here are my thoughts. I narrowed my search down to Toshiba and Acer, as I believe they are the best. This is a great bargain for a quality laptop. I liken it to a Camry - functional, dependable, with no frilly junk. No problems on delivery - I was checking the progress on my Amazon account, and read that it had been delivered - on my front porch (I live in a big house). Went to the front door, and there was the package!

fast, light, affordable

  • Summary: I was planning to install more RAM but it doesn't seem to need it. IE is slow but it is on every computer I've used. Firefox and Chrome are both lightning fast. So glad I took a chance on this. And Amazon delivered 3 days earlier than I expected. Very pleased and would readily recommend this product (and site)!

Great Budget Laptop for anyone

jason Cox, Amazon
25 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought this computer a few weeks ago off of Newegg and so far so good. Please keep in mind that this computer is not built for gaming. I am a grad student and it works just fine for everyday tasks (i.e. MS Office, surfing internet, streaming videos, etc.). I was even running AutoCAD 2011 Civil 3D just fine (For those who don't know, AutoCAD is a drafting software for engineers that requires a decent amount CPU usage and RAM) PROS: -full keyboard, meaning there is a...

Great value for light (ie non-gaming) use

Mojoman, Amazon
25 March 2010
  • Summary: I was looking for a laptop/notebook to connect to my 60" flat-screen television. A fair amount of research led me to choose this unit as it was low-priced (~350), offered solid graphics performance in the dual-core AMD E-350 APU, integrated HDMI output connection, decent-sized hard drive and running Windows 7 (64-bit). Only minor negative associated with this unit is it only has 2Gb memory installed. However, that 2Gb is on one stick and unit has a second slot available.

Acer AS5253

FarvaSCW, Amazon
25 March 2010
  • Summary: Great laptop, battery life is about 5 hours for normal use. Easy to type on and the number pad is a big plus. The AMD E350 apu is still good for some gaming I can play left 4 dead 2 and fallout new vegas with no lag. Defiantly not a high end laptop but for only 400 its a great deal, however I do recommend getting another 2gig stick of ram as it runs a lot better on 4gig.

Excellent Value for Basics

  • Summary: This is a great product. I was very impressed with the condition of the laptop. It has only the basics. There is no Microsoft Word. If you are not looking for all the fancy gismos and software, this is the one for you.
