  • 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

  • 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

Good low end entertainment laptop

  • Excerpt: The Acer Aspire 5536g laptop is altogether a good lower end home use laptop with many features that are only usually seen in more expensive models. With 2 AMD Athlon 64 processors the speed is more than enough for any standard laptop user and even more processor hungry programs for example video...

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.
