Excerpt: The Acer Aspire model number 5552-3691 is a great deal. The laptop is relatively inexpensive, but of high end quality. I especially like the larger screen size of 15.6". With a weight of about 5 pounds, it is light and easily transported for school or work. I have found it easy to sit on my lap and use on the go. The speakers are of above average quality and do not have a tinning sound common among laptops.
Excerpt: Take yourself back in time four years. Windows Vista had just been released on top of computers that didn’t have the power to run it to it’s full potential. Windows Vista was Microsoft’s self proclaimed genius operating system which fell incredibly short. The year is 2010. Your old laptop has given in. We shopped around, and found this Acer with a Phenom x3 to be the best value for our money (£400), so, we naturally bought it.
Summary: THIS LAPTOP IS SIMPLY AMAZING!! Sure yea maybe i got the bluee screen of death more then ehhh..5 times but my machine is a trooper. Never have glitches or odd shutdowns. Keys are light not cheap, I took them off to clean and they have a accord spring to them, that's for sure. Speaker is pretty good if alone in room, public not so much. OVER ALL IN ALL..LOOOOVEIT!! If one knows how to take care of things, this slick, sexy, and soft laptop is made for you.
Summary: I'm using this laptop since late 2010. In 2,5 years there have been 2 major problems. First it lagged and couldn't let me boot windows. After a format it was running smooth again! But then the cooling fan broke down, destroying my graphics card. Now i'm running on windows 8 pro and it's really stable. Overall, if you upgrade RAM & HDD it is a fine choice for everyday use.

Summary: 4 months after I bought this laptop it started to randomly turn off. It continuously overheated and the blue screen started to appear. After time this started to happen more often which made me really mad as I couldn't leave my laptop on the tabled for more than 3 minutes. Additionally the dvd writer doesn't read all of my cd's while other laptops do.
Summary: I bought this laptop to finish High School and make it through my first year or so of College. After 6 months of use, I feel like I've known the in's and out's of this computer. Fortunately for me, most of the "problems" I've had with this computer have been complete user error. But, the installed Windows 7 Home Premium flagged my computer as Non-Genuine after a month of use. I am still not certain if this was Acer's error, or Microsoft's.
Pros: Durablility, Power, Graphics,
Cons: Bloatware, Tinny Sound System, No Bluetooth, HD space feels small.
Summary: I use this laptop as a desktop replacement, and I am very happy with it's performance. I added memory, bringing it to 8gb, and I have a USB to sata hard drive dock for backup, I use either my Onkyo/Bose stereo or Logitech G930 Headset for my sound, so I really dont mind the lack of onboard stereo speakers ( laptop speakers, even the best ones tend to be tinny at best). If you buy one of these upgrade your Ram, and you will have a great performing laptop.
Pros: Price, Performance of CPU, Hard disc size, Graphics
Cons: expansion options, Installed memory not adequate, speaker
Summary: Ive had this for about a year now, being a student, I tend to dabble in a fairly broad range of software ranging from programming and word processing to much more advanced 3d rendering and image editing software. I own the slightly higher spec model with 4gb RAM and 640GB HDD which is a plus, and from reviews I've read, this seems to make a fair bit of difference.
Summary: Its not meant for gaming it is a business Laptop if you want a gaming Pc then I suggest something higher priced like alien-ware pc or ferrari but this does just fine for what its meant for which is internet surfing and downloading programs for business or home purposes ONLY!
Pros: good for using documents like word and excel...
