Summary: I purchased this laptop because I was so impressed with the acer netbook I got a month ago. You will get a lot for your money. Has everything I need to take my online classes. Fast and easy to carry for a 15".
Reliabile laptop that has given me credible trust to entertain buying another ACER when replacing.

Excerpt: This has been a reliable laptop for the past 5 or 6 years, the workhorse of all my work and leisure hobbies. Bought in a major department store with no knowledge of the brand I relied totally on the sales person.
Excerpt: Acer Aspire 5551 I've been using this laptop for three years now and its served me very well for day-to-day use. I browse the web, use Office applications, watch DVDs and edit photos. It looks sleek with rounded edges and smooth lines.
Summary: The battery has a lifespan of less than a year, which is probably why Acer only guarantees the battery for six months. I was given a replacement from Amazon after the battery deteriorated after 9 months. Now this notebooks battery is defunct after a similar time.
Definitely recommended, Nobody else seems to have had the problems i did, so probably a one off

Excerpt: I have had this laptop since January, and in that time it has broke 3 times. Each time the hardrive has failed, and Acer have replaced it for me. They were very quick and professional, fair play to them, and each time was in the first 3 months or so of having it. I haven't had any problems since.
Excerpt: Got this laptop for my mother (66 years old) who is a complete novice, she needed a nice big screen as she has bad eyes. This laptop was perfect for her. Setting up this machine was one of the easiest things you could ever do, as I say my mother has only just started using computers could do it...
Good all-round laptop, would reccomend to anyone for a beginner or intermediate laptop!

Excerpt: I bought this laptop last christmas, so I've had this product for nearly 8 months now and I still struggle to find why it was so cheap to buy! It came with a 320GB Hard drive so there was plenty of space for music, documents, pictures and videos!
All in all I would say it is average or satisfactory.

Excerpt: I got this Laptop at christmas so just over 5 months ago. It is good for going on the internet and using microsoft word and basic applications like paint and notepad. The only problem is I have filled the hard drive 75% with music and video files etc.
