Summary: Good laptop for the price. I knocked it down to 3 stars because it does not have a built-in microphone despite having a built-in video camera. I was overseas and could not Skype with my family until my wife bought a $5 plug-in microphone. Common' Acer, spend the extra $2 and put in a microphone.
Summary: Overall I am pleased with this laptop, happy with the keyboard, but so disappointed when downloading skype that although there was a webcam, there was no mic - talk about silent movies. I am quite an experienced user, but I think any novice would have found it hard to spot that there is no mic! To quantify I had an Acer before and just assumed there was a mic. What is wrong with Acer?
Excerpt: "I have had my Acer Aspire for two years now. It has held up pretty well for a college student that keeps it on all day and all night. In my opinion the computer has a really short battery life, and after about a year it pretty much stopped holding a charge at all. It is a slow computer but is rather user friendly. I love the position of the keyboard and how easy things are to access on this computer. It is very comfortable to use and the size makes ...
Summary: On advice from an IT friend, I purchasd this Acer Aspire because of its supposed value for money, software and ease of use. Very pleased I was when it arrived and I found how simple it was to set up and use straight from the box BUT within a 5 weeks from purchase the build quality became a definite issue.

Summary: This laptop for the price is a top runner leaving the more expensive competition lagging behind, It would be a world leader except for silly and unforgivable mistakes by Acer themselves. The DVD drive seems to be a bargain basement cast off unwilling to function at anything close to the quality a person would expect, Not recognising discs, Telling you that a newly formatted disc is full.
Summary: This laptop is ok..its quite fast like most acers easy to use etc etc BUT.....the 2 usb ports are on the left so if you are right handed & want to plug a mouse in its a bit of pain....The WORST thing is that although it has a built in webcam it doesn't have a built in mic...whats up with that acer?
Excerpt: sono due anni abbondanti che ho questo portatile. comprato nuovo a 400 euro quindi a un prezzo basso. ne ho fatto uso massiccio. SVANTAGGI: il microfono mi ha abbandonato quasi subito. ora mi segnala che non c'è... ho il sospetto che me lo sia sognato. la batteria nell'arco dell'ultimo semestre è andata annullandosi tanto che oggi posso usarlo soltanto collegato alla rete (attualmente dura meno di mezzora). la vernice del touch pad si è dissolta ...
Summary: Pour satisfaire toutes les demandes, les fabricants proposent plusieurs tailles différentes. Malgré tout, je trouve que pour le moment les portables du format du meilleur, les 15 sont très bien avec beaucoup d’élégance dans une taille très honorable. Cependant, parfois comme celui-ci, qui m’a été offert, je ne le conseille pas pour 2 raisons.
