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: Did lots of research and got down to this and the Dell Inspiron. Decided on the Acer and happy with the delivery and product. It looks good (I had my doubts about silver but I'm converted). I don't believe the battery will last 3/4 hours but otherwise I'm a happy customer.
Summary: I agree with what Michael has said it is a nice looking computer, not too heavy, pretty good battery life, 4 hours of web surfing and stuff with multiple windows open, however if you use it at home you can use the high performance setting which drains the battery more. fulfills my needs.
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 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
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.
