  • Summary: Product works perfect, the only downside is that the ventilation is underneath the laptop. Therefore is overheats quickly and can switch itself off Other than that, a perfect machine.

  • Excerpt: "...advice, we opted for this Acer model. We bought it from Tesco online, it cost around £360 at the time, as I recall it was part of a special offer. It was a considerable upgrade at the time from anything we had at home, this lappy was running Windows 7 for a start... a few Windows versions ahead of our other computer.. My daughter got on really well with this lappy, but due to her course and funding etc.. she had another one and this Acer came ...
  • Pros: Well made, good quality  -  good product
  • Cons: I can't be sure if the fault was accidental or a fault  in the product, but prefer to think not

  • Excerpt: I have two laptops that I regularly use, I have my own laptop and then I have my work laptop which never leaves my side. I need a good laptop for work as I do a lot of work which requires a lot of memory. I have an Acer laptop as my home laptop and getting this one from work, I couldn't complain, although not my favourite computer brand I did actually really like the design on this one.

Volcano Laptop

Kaiserin, Amazon
2 May 2012
  • Summary: I have one of these. It's pretty, powerful for the price and has a very nice screen. Mine came with Vista and a then-optional upgrade to Windows 7. Vista is appallingly slow - if that's what yours ships with, ditch it as soon as you can. I run 64-bit OpenSuSE 12.1 and 32-bit Windows 7 - the 64-bit linux really flies, although ATI's proprietary linux Catalyst driver is shockingly poor.

  • Summary: I've had this laptop since 2009. It's still going strong and is mostly in good condition, apart from the mouse pad, now I have never had any problems with it, it's decent, but the glossy paint that it's coated in has over time worn off to a blackish colour, just wear and tear I guess. The laptops 4GB of RAM still keeps it going strong and fast.
  • Pros: Wide screen, looks good, and is very fast.
  • Cons: Can get very hot, poor graphics card for gaming and keyboard
