Summary: I bought my Acer Aspire 5732z at Office Max for just under $400. Performance-wise, it's an awesome little computer that's quick and fairly easy to use. I don't do any video games that would require a fast processor, so I can't comment on that. The only issues I have with it is 1)the power cord falls out very easily and many times I thought it was plugged in only to have the computer flash a low-battery message or, if I'm on a hidden-object game, just shut off.
Summary: this is a very nice computer for the price. i underestimated the ability it actually has. it is fast, reliable, and has not given me any problems. i dont do much hardcore gaming, but flight simulator X. it suits me fine at about 10 fps on average, even with a basic processor. i would reccomend this computer, although now i am moving on to a better computer for high school in the 1000 dollar area.
Summary: I bought this to replace my netbook that I loved, but accidentally damaged a while back. My netbook mostly met my needs and I liked its small size. With the advent of Windows 7, some of the advantages of a netbook were lost, in my mind, anyway, so I sought something that would run Windows 7 Home Premium with ease and had an optical drive for a project I was doing at the time, and more comfortable keyboard. This Acer was a perfect fit for me.
Excerpt: I bought this Aspire as a replacement for my desktop computer about 18 months ago - so I have used it every day and can give you an overall account of what it is like. This laptop was bought from Dixons in Basingstoke for about £380 a few years ago, the price did drop a few months later. I believe you can buy this at around £300 now. I've owned computers since Sinclair zx80 and 81 back in the 1980's - this is a bit easier to set up !
Excerpt: I'm not particularly knowledgeable about computers, dont understand all the techi bits and basically I wanted a laptop that I could easily operate, mainly for internet, watching DVDs and uploading my pictures. I chose Acer Aspire largely for price range being right (actually I bought from John Lewis when it was on a "special purchase" offer) and it appeared to be the basic kind of laptop that I required.
Summary: I have just bought the ACER ASPIRE 5732Z notebook/laptop. It is equipped with several important features, although its price is relatively not high. As a customer, I would have liked to be given the choice of having WINDOWS XP with which I am familiar, rather than be constrained to have WINDOWS 7 as the operating system. I expected the notebook to be accompanied with a CD of WINDOWS 7, as is usually the custom with the retail shops locally in Malta selling PCs.
Summary: Nice machine with reasonable battery life. I use mainly for word processing and music. I also use with my digital camera and Skype and of course internet. Drawbacks, only two usb ports, no caps lock light, and no internal mic, silly because excellent built in webcam. Recent purchase of new TV makes me wish I had a HDMI port, so take this into consideration prior to purchase.
Performance based this is a serious laptop for the price bracket.

Excerpt: I bought this laptop from Currys and it cost around £430 which included a half price antivirus software package. The 15.6inch HD LCD screen is very clear and is adequate for what I use the laptop for. If you want a laptop for games use, I would recommend a larger screen. This laptop also comes with a 3 GB memory and a 250GB harddrive.
Excerpt: I've had this laptop for a couple of days now and have been using it almost non-stop. I was a bit unsure about the pentium processor, I was told to go for Core 2 duo or above but I took a risk and was more than pleasantly surprised, this laptop runs even faster than my old one that had core 2 duo. I don't know if its the extra memory or not (my other one only had 1GB) but whatever it's got it works!
Excerpt: I had never bought a laptop before a month or so ago. Years spent slaving over one those hulking great pcs, that takes about fifteen minutes to boot up! I bit the bullet finally when my mum suggested that I invest in a laptop from Tesco. There were a couple of hot picks and this was one of them. I am typing on the Acer as I write this review. I was at first confused with the difference between a laptop and a notebook. On the whole, notebooks seemed to be smaller.
