Summary: Computer is fine, personally, I don't like the keyboard. The 10 key pad is hard to get used to on my laptop, I can't seem to get my fingers in the right position. Also, new to Windows 7. I know that has nothing to do with the computer itself. I also have a hard time with the mouse.
Acer Aspire 5551-P323G32Mnsk: Good For General Use
7 May 2011
Summary: 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. and the Laptop runs really slow now when opening say for instance photoshop.
Pros: Can link it upto the TV
Cons: There is spaceon hard drive but it still runs slow
Summary: I found this Laptop exactly what I wanted in that it provides backup for my main PC and can be used on our travels around the world. It was very well priced and will do all that I require. It is good value for money.
Summary: While this seems to be a decent laptop, it is listed as a newer version of the 5532 Aspire ("Acer Aspire 5532 15.6-inch HD LCD Notebook, 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor L310, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit") which I got about a year ago. The 5532 had 4GB RAM and a 500GB HDD (no webcam) and cost £396. This has 3GB RAM and 320GB HDD, although it does have a webcam. Why is an inferior product listed as a newer (and presumably "better") version?
Summary: I wanted a simple to use home computer for emails and internet access. I bought the product because it was recommended by other purchasers. Amazon can usually be relied on to offer good products at competitive prices. I had read that the touch pad has a life of its own and is over sensitive. This is true, though most of the time it's manageable. More problematic are the click left and right buttons. These make a clunking sound and do not operate smoothly.
