  • Excerpt: When my IBM T42 boot dirve failed I needed to find a good, cheap laptop to replace.  Searched the web and looked at various offerings at Walmart, BestBuys, and a local computer discount store.  Found the ACER available for a good price and gave it a more thorough look over.  While it is lacking in some high end features, it seem like a good bargain as I only needed a laptop for accessing the internet.  I've had it a few month now and it's held up pretty well.

Acer - low cost laptop

  • Excerpt: After purchasing an expensive laptop about 3 years ago for my college age daughter, it broke during her third year.   We had many problems with this "name brand" laptop.   We were forced to go out and purchase one quickly and didn't have a ton of money to spend on a new laptop.  We bought an Acer laptop at Best Buy.   I was a little nervous about buying a low cost laptop, but it has been wonderful.

  • Excerpt: i have only owned Dell laptops before and never tried any other laptops. my dell laptop's battery died and had several other issues since i have been using that laptop for almost 5 years. We were looking for an alternate laptop and started with Sony since im a big fan of sony products. Sony vaio laptops are very expensive, so it did not fit in my budget. so, i was looking other options where i wanted a very good processor for a very good price.

  • Excerpt: My recent purchase of the Acer Laptop was a good one.It was truly a great find. I was looking for a laptop my my daughters, it is hard sharing a computer with teenager. So when I saw this one advertised at one of the local stores, I immoderately jumped on the opportunity to bring this home to the girls. I was think that with the price there would not be anymore but it was in stock. The space on the  harddrive  is about 320 gb and the memory is about 3 gb.Not bad at all.

  • Excerpt: I had wanted to upgrade my laptop for the last 6 months. I figured I would wait until the holiday season came to make my choice, im glad I did. When I buy my computers, I buy them through QVC,HSN, or shop NBC. Reason being, I can break the payment over 5-6 months, with no interest, and each company always puts together a package that I cant buy through threre store, or any store on the market. I had picked a Dell from QVC at first.

  • Excerpt: " I brought this laptop back in August. This was my first laptop as previously I have always used a desktop. The Laptop is lightweight and when you get your head around windows eight it is fairly straightforward to use. Personally I'm not fan of windows eight and would have preferred an earlier windows programme. The lap top is preloaded with numerous programmes for me lots of which I would never use. Instead it would have been great to have something ...
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Comes with Window 8 pre - installed .

It loads fast and shuts down quickly. Has a very good amount of memory, the only issue i had was not being able to have sims on my laptop due to not enough ram, but other then that it allows me to do basicly everything. When i purchased this laptop i did not buy any extra add-on's or speed ...
  • Pros: simple to use, fast, lots of features
  • Cons: not full access to all games, not a huge amount of memory

  • Excerpt: "I was given this laptop as a present on my birthday and fell in love with it from the first day. Firstly the 15.6 inch wide screen really makes watching videos and playing games much better and more entertaining. I really enjoy using this laptop because of the shape of the screen and the resolution it gives. Next the AMD athlon 2.0 GHz processor is extremely fast, the laptop will turn on fully from a complete shut down in a matter of seconds which ...
  • Pros: high ram, high hard drive, good camera, amazing processor, good battery life
  • Cons: bluetooth button does not work as no bluetooth is installed .
