Summary: I have used this model for 2 1/2 years and counting. It frequently has overheating problems. The internal fan goes crazy and then when it gives out the computer shuts down without warning and it takes awhile to get it to be able to turn back on. I am going to get an external hard drive because I am worried I will lose my personal files when it has another temper tantrum and refuses to turn back on. I don't game at all, just your average student-use.
Summary: Pros: LED LCD with really great image quality, lots of options. Other than bluetooth, has everything that you want in a laptop at in a great price range. Cons: 1. It runs super hot. The core temp measured by speedfan is about 70 degree centigrade at base and just by watching a video online goes up to 80 and more. Because of that fan is constantly working and blows super hot air.
Acer Aspire 5536-643G25Mn: acer aspire 5536 good spec but poor performance
23 June 2011
Summary: 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. the HD screen is however a good point as the picture quality it offers is impressive. although without a blur ray drive it is not put to full use. the additional number pad on the side of the laptop is useful.
Pros: HD screen, large number of usb slots. huge 500gb hard drive, additional number pad.
Cons: constant overheating which leads to very poor perfomance
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. Keys fly off (literally) and stick, making it necessary to hit them hard to work. It has a terribly poor flat design allowing dust to accumulate under keys, and typing on it is a pain.
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: 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.
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. It would drive me crazy to try and work all day with a computer that makes so much noise without stopping. I brought this computer back and changed it to a different Brand and I'm really glad I did.
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. On the plus side, the screen is great and you get plenty of hard drive space for your money.
Summary: Moin Moin, Das Acer Aspire 5536G ist zwar schon ein bisschen älter, trotzdem findet man es noch sehr oft in den Läden zu "guten Preisen" um die 400 -500€. Ich habe dieses Gerät 2010 gekauft, als es noch im Preis reduziert war. Was zuerst überzeugt sind die starken Leistungen die dick und fett auf dem Schild stehen: AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual core // Ati Radeon HD 3200 // 3GB DDR2 // 250 GB Festplatte und schnelles Wlan.
Pros: Hohe Systemressourcen zum kleinen Preis, ansprechendes Design
Cons: Überhitzt schnell, braucht externe Kühlung bei Grafikprogrammen, schwer, laut
