Excerpt: I bought an acer laptop before starting my sophmore year in college. The computer itself was fine but after 3 months the battery broke and it costs $200 to replace it. I talked to someone who fixes computers and he said that he sees acers in his shop every week with the same problem. Save your money and buy a more expensive but better laptop.

Excerpt: Working with the Aspire 5610 has been a very frustrating experience. This is my second poor experience with the Acer brand. I bought an Acer computer back in the mid-90's and switched to Dell laptop which was kind of OK for the time (Dell can have its rotten ones too) I then switched back to an Acer labtop this time to give it another go some ten years later. The product is still poorly engineered and performs below expectations.
Excerpt: My husband bought me a Acer laptop, never owning one, I didn't know what to expect. I love my laptop, I enjoy the freedom of not being stuck to a desk all day long. The only down fall I have found with this laptop is that the battery doesn't last long. But that's why it's nice to have the cord to plug it in when it dies. It's been a great laptop for a great price.
The Acer Aspire 5610 is great once you remove the Acer software.

Excerpt: I purchased the Acer Aspire 5610 to use for school and work. When I first bought it, it came loaded with bunches of Acer software. The software hogged the memory. Once I removed the Acer software, the computer runs great. I love this laptop and would not be able to live without it even though we have two desktops as well. I recommend this affordable laptop to anyone who needs to work on the go or just wants some freedom on where they can work or play on the computer.
Excerpt: so easy to get started just plug in and use .I expected complicated setup. My only complaints would be when I set the screen to go to standby to save power it has become very dark when it come back on and I have to adjust the brightness. I have also had a couple of Vista issues that were easily resolved.
Excerpt: Hello to all, I am new here and trying to figure out how to work this thing out. I am just trying to find new friends and some information on cheap laptops that I can purchace. I don't have a laptop at the moment but I have used them in the past, just would like one now so that if I go any where, I can just pack it up and go. Man I hate having to write about things espeacilly when they have to be at least 900 words.
Excerpt: I did a lot of research on-line when I decided I was going to purchase a laptop computer. Part of my research was to scan the local sales ads to see what was on sale. Then make some choices. Then I would jump online and look for reviews for the systems I chose. When the Acer Aspire 5610 was on sale at a local Best Buy, I was pretty pleased with the reviews, finding the biggest issue was with the "on board mouse action". I purchased it for $699.99.

Excerpt: Bought this laptop for $499 at circuit city back in August. It now lists for $699. Huge value for what you get. Super fast,internet is great. Came loaded with Vista-still learning about that. Compatible with my Microsoft Office for XP-even though they say it's not. I had no problem. If you're looking for a great deal on a laptop without spending $1000,look at Acers. They are #3 right now behind Dell and Hp and with good reason.
