Low Price. Hard to Upgrade.

Alexander C., Newegg
17 August 2014
  • Summary: Buy something if you plan to upgrade or recover data from this laptop.
  • Pros: This is an affordable laptop.
  • Cons: Forget upgrading this thing. Need to remove all the screw and motherboard to access the ram. Also the hard drive is very hard to access.

Memory (RAM) upgrade...

Lawrence T., Newegg
15 July 2014
  • Summary: Would probably not have ordered this laptop if I had known there was no access covers on the bottom.
  • Pros: Low price for a i5 laptop when on sale.
  • Cons: It came without a DVD drive but that wasn't a deal breaker for me since I have a portable USB DVD drive. My biggest concern is that I don't see a way to upgrade the memory or hard drive. There are no access doors on the bottom and can find no info on dis-assembly so that the memory can be upgraded. I would also like to eventually upgrade to a SSD drive but looks to be almost impossible to get to the hard drive and memory.

Trash

  • Summary: The laptop freezes when it comes out of sleep mode as well as other inopportune moments such as when the fan initiates. If I had it to do all over again, I'd buy a MacBook. You get what you pay for...

Stay Away

  • Summary: I have one of these laptops, and it's true what they say, you get what you pay for. 1 year 2 months and 13 days. That's how long mine lasted. The display has gone out, so when it's on black is green and grainy almost as though it's an analog display with static. What a disappointment!

Oh Acer, I used to love you.

BaPuters, Amazon
17 June 2010
  • Summary: There is a reason Acer costs hundreds less than the competition, they use cheap parts, cheap labor, and low quality. After experiencing frequent BSODs for the graphic card overheating, updating drivers, reformatting nothing worked. Taking it apart and checking the thermal paste job was a shock. The CPU/GPU thermal paste jobs/quality/and material were horrible. Literally dried caked paste everywhere, so hard it wasn't making contact with any of the processors.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Processor and hdd size
  • Cons: dvd writer

Un computer che non mi ha soddisfatto.

Peppebrescia, Ciao
30 January 2014
  • Summary: Circa tre anni fa disponevo in casa di un solo computer fisso e visto che in famiglia siamo in quattro e che tutti lo usavamo, decisi di prenderne un altro. Per l’affidabilità, da quello che ne so io e da quello che dicono tutti i tecnici del settore, un fisso è sempre migliore di un portatile. Bisognerebbe però avere spazio a sufficienza per poterne avere più di uno. Per questo motivo alla fine decisi di prenderne uno di tipo portatile.
  • Pros: Quando andava bene
  • Cons: Leggete, ho raccontati i problemi che ho avuto con questo computer .

  • Summary: salve, ho acquistato questo pc dell'acer un anno fa..peccato che da circa sei mesi è inutilizzabile.. nonostante non ne facessi un uso smodato e avessi anche installato il sistema operativo ubuntu per renderlo più "leggero", questo pc mi ha sempre dato un sacco di problemi a livello hardware.
  • Pros: mi ci sono affezionato  : )
  • Cons: hardware pessimo .
