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. Has served...
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.

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.
Summary: Easy to carry around the house so not tied to the desk, plan on using it when we travel. Love the numeric keyboard with the 15.6" screen, matte keys show no fingerprints and bright true color display. Can't forget blue-ray! Bought one for me and week later bought another for my husband. Biggest problem is knowing which one is his and which one is mine. Skins should help with that. [...
Summary: Overall, I am very impressed with this laptop and with Windows 7. The graphics are excellent and the HDMI connection is great for watching TV shows from Hulu on your big screen. It runs Adobe Premiere (video editing software) with ease. It is pre-loaded with plenty of bloat-ware, but any new computer has this. There are two annoying things about this computer. First, there is no software for using the Blu-Ray player.
Pros: Fast, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet
Summary: We gave this to our son for his high school graduation present because he is going into the web design & software engineer field in college--he has been in that field at a career center for two years. He loves it! He is much more tech savvy than I am and he likes everything but the battery life on it. He says the graphics and blue ray capability are awesome! He practically sleeps with it.
Summary: This is a well-designed fast laptop with a nice-looking display all-round but not perfect. One of the most annoying things is the latch design to open the lid. It's very hard to grab and slide and lift the lid at the same time to open the laptop. It's quite a struggle. The battery life is not too impressive either with only 2.5 hrs of life from full charge.
