Summary: tgrackpad/mouse absolute nihtmare. already wrote this review once ,trackpad went off on its own!! one minute too sensitive then no responce at all. Very slow general response. Is it the mouse? Is it the computer? is it the way acer build their computers?
Summary: i like this laptop alot its from 2009 so yeah its not gonna be good for gaming current or recent titles but i game counter strike source , halo pc and halo 2 on this and it runs it smoothly and on high settings with 60+ FPS
I mourn this lappy and will try to give it the kiss of life!

Excerpt: My daughter is in her third year now at university, we couldn't really afford it, but in time for her going off to university we offered to buy her a new laptop. After considerable research and advice, we opted for this Acer model.
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.
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.
Pros: Wide screen, looks good, and is very fast.
Cons: Can get very hot, poor graphics card for gaming and keyboard
Summary: Bought this laptop over 15 months ago. It is quick, powerful and has an excellent quality webcam intergrated ideal for skype etc. Since i have owned it, i have had no problems with it at all and is working as well as the first day that i bought it.
Summary: I have the one with 500gb hdd and 4 gb of ram which has now also died on me after 20 months .But up until then I have not had two many problems other than mouse pad placement when typing.It was fast and smooth running and is a good cheap laptop which can also be it's downfall .
the constant overheating overshadows all possible advantages, dont buy!

Excerpt: i bought this laptop due to the impressive spec it had on offer for the money, however dont be fooled. despite the good spec the laptop just simply cant cope with it. it often over heats and can only be used on a desk or performance falls significantly.
Summary: I've owned this machine for nearly 2 years and every 10 months or so the hard drive has a catastrophic failure do to overheating, i have tried many techniques to keep it cool, but it gets hot very quickly.
Summary: this laptop is terrible the keys are horrible to type on and often stick, i have looked after it yet it still become very hot this leads it to overheating and about once every 2 months this becomes to much for the hard drive and making it dump all memory, this you can recover and is very tedious,...
