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.
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: Lovely lap top which was useful for the kids homework. Arrived on time and was suitably packaged. The only thing to mention is my son uses it the most and he has started using the mouse as the buttons below the touch pad don't seem to be working. He only mentioned it recently so not sure how long they've been playing up.
Summary: This laptop is a solid machine and performs well at things like internet surfing and word processing, that kind of thing and that's good because that is what many look for in a computer. However if you are slightly younger and still enjoy and want to play video games then steer clear, this laptop has one of the worst graphics cards I have ever seen; in the windows experience index most of the scores are in the 5's and 6's but the graphics bring the score down to a 3,...
Summary: I ordered a 5551 and received a 5552 which is a later model with one tiny internal speaker (the 5551 has two), which was disappointing but not sufficient to return the product since it is excellent otherwise. The sound is actually OK and loud enough for watching films but for playing music it is very tiny and distorts easily at higher volumes.
