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?
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.
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.
Range of laptops let down by atrocious cheapo keyboard

Summary: Acer Aspire range have a high-ish spec on paper, and the screen is fine, but alongside the very easily scratched piano-black type cases, one is cursed with the very worst component, the lamentable rubbery totally flat keyboard. Cheap, flimsy rubbish; mine failed, and now I'm on my THIRD.
Summary: Chose this as high specification for HDD and memory. 11 months on ithas bee returned 5 times including not working twice and keys failing so keyboard replaced. It is not wireless configured and I lost it when it a virus invaded although covered with Norton! Have to ring techies again to reconfigure.
Summary: Bought Oct 09, Hard drive had to be replaced after 8 months, after 13 months - all guarantees out - another blank screen, and no response from F8 - dead, dead, Will have to go back to reliable Dell.
Summary: You get what you pay for with this laptop. On paper this computer has the best spec on the market for £330, but be warned; terrible battery life - less than 2 hours, awful sound quality and most importantly, processing is more sluggish than my 5 year old desk top.
Summary: I bought this computer in rush as my old computer died. Was very disappointed when I got it to find that the Fan on it runs continuously and never turns off... even when there are no applications running. And to make matters worse the Fan is very noisey.
Summary: Have to review Acer (not this laptop exactly) Sound went funny on mine so I sent it back a few days after coming back the sound went again. Want to complain? Want to send an email? No chance. Don't buy Acer they are rubbish and poorly built. My old Dell is 10 times better. You've been warned.
