Staying with the Acer manufacturer, great utility for reasonable price.

Summary: My experience with this computer has been excellent by far. Aspire Model by Acer has a fast processor, astounding graphics card and more than plenty memory space. I recommend this computer as it is relatively cheap, but well worth the price.

Summary: I have bought this laptop (as is) since there was a vertical line across the screen but it was cheap I am very pleased with it so far, it is fast and the display looks very nice as well as the keyboard has a pleasant number pad. The touch pad position is weird and in my opinion should be moved toward the right.
Excerpt: This is my 4th computer ever and let me say its the best yet, and cost the least. I first had this ancient desktop running windows 2000! Then another desktop with xp, last i had my HP laptop that was pretty much crap and cost way too much and had vista to boot! Now ive got this little acer and im in love with it. Its screen is clear and crisp, big spacious keyboard, nice webcam, and a bluray player!
Excerpt: The Acer 5551-4200s a great laptop for the price. Options include AMD Turion II X2 Premium Processor P520 ( 2.3 GHz ), Windows 7 64 bit, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 Graphics, 15.6" HD LED LCD, 4 GB DDR3 Memory, 320 GB HDD, Blu-Ray Disc Drive, 6 Cell Li-ion battery. I have had this unit for three weeks and have enjoyed it greatly. I had a Dell 1526, and this unit runs circles around it. Much faster, more options, and overall a clean powerful Laptop.
Excerpt: Acer aspire 5551 laptop features a 15'6 screen, dvd players, web camera, all the usual features expected of a laptop. The power button is conveniently located at the top left of the keyboard, next to it are indicators for web camera, microphone, etc. I used it for school and gaming. The gaming is surprisingly good for such a weak- graphic card wise laptop, it wont play the latest graphically intense games, but it can play a surprisingly amount of games including Fallout:...
Excerpt: I received this as a gift shipped from Walmart.com. When I looked up the item on the website, I couldn't believe how inexpensive it was - $397.98! Well it's quite nicer than my Dell Inspiron (that I've had for 3 years). 15.6" HD LED LCD Screen; 2.1 GHz Processor; 2 GB Memory; 250GB HDD; DVD - Super Multi DL Drive; 6 - Cell Li-ion Battery and comes complete with Windows 7 Operating System.
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. I needed it for website work (I was a beginner) and for general image transcriptions (genealogy). The machine has not once let me down in performance.
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. The textured mesh silver cover helps prevent scratches and fingerprints. The 15.6" HD LED LCD screen is big and bright. This is great for me because I run Capture NX, Lightroom and Photoshop to edit my photos.
Summary: Had this laptop for around 3 years now and in that time I've already had to replace both the charger and the battery. The battery life alone on the machine is around 3 hours at average and if you want to run a game you constantly need the charger plugged in which overheats incredibly quickly.
