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: 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: Bought this item after reading other reviews and because it was on offer. It is proving perfect for my needs which is for general usage such as emails, letter writing, ordering goods online and banking, networking, etc.
Summary: this computer is quick and easy to use. It was very easy to set up and connect to internet and skype the first time it was used. The screen is big enough, but I find the keyboard a bit difficult to use, the keys are just a tad too small for me.
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.
But seems to be ok now and running smoothly so provided I have no future problems with it I am happy with it

Summary: Took a while for it to settle down - had problems with it freezing at first - thinking that was because it had lots of updates to do! I don't know how long it had not been used for. But seems to be ok now and running smoothly so provided I have no future problems with it I am happy with it.
Summary: I like this laptop, its really good value for money and has a half decent battery life too. Honestly i got an ACer because i already had one and so does my better half so i dont have to get a different charger, however i do like the package they have put together in this instance
Summary: really enjoy using this computer. Although the keyboard does seem to have a mind of its own on occasions. Windows 7 is a substaintal improvement on Windows XP.It is only the high sensitive mouse/keyboard that stops this computer being a 5 star product.
