Excerpt: I have found this laptop to be very reliable and good value for the price, with only a few faults. The i3 processor (very fast and more than adequate for everyday computing) had just come out so it hasn't gotten dated so easily, but the hard drive (only 320GB) far too small for the price point...

Excerpt: This laptop may be small, but is great to use when you live in a Nursing Home and have limited space, after Christmas in January 2010. It is a great unit to keep in step with the out-side world. I paid $196.98 for it new, others a great deal more. I can use it in my bed and in my wheel chair. I just love having , I am now working on my "Genealogy" using this unit. It does the same a large desk top will do.
The Acer Aspire is a great, afforable, and fast laptop!

Excerpt: I was skeptical about buying this computer because I was unfamilar with the brand. All my previous computers have been dells. But you couldnt beat the price for what you were getting. You can imagine my surprise when the computer performed equal or in some cases better than the dell. I have been able to load all my software onto this computer, such as adobe photoshop, corel psp, and some other editing software, with a breeze. It was quick and easy.
Excerpt: I recently purchased this laptop as i needed to update my office computer. I paid just under $400 for it. So at least it was inexpensive, however it is cheaply made compared to other manufactures, and felt flimsy, i immeadiatley noticed a loose keyboards, a sticky mouse. loading up skype to work with the built in camera took twice as long as on my Dell. The software runs slow partly the result of having only 320 Megabytes of memory though running on 4 gigs of Ram.
Excerpt: I have an acer aspire and I found that it has exactly what I need in a laptop. I've used my friends' computer and I noticed the layout of the keys is alway...different. I Don't mind different placement of keys, but this computer feels right. It was a new experience getting a large screen like this one, but I really to like the larger resolutions I can use with it. Also, it's a newer operating system, an upgrade to the windows 98 I had not too long ago.
Excerpt: The Acer Aspire AS5740 Notebook PC is absolutely great. I us it daily as my main computer. I love the way everything is laid out easy to find. The screen is wonderful. I have a 15.6" HD LCD Screen and it is just amazing. The graphics are phenomenal. TouchTone Keypad is very useful. At first, I thought I would have to buy a wireless mouse, because most of the laptops you buy the mousepad is no good, but with the Acer Aspire you don't need one.
Great computer if you don't need to print anything

Excerpt: I actually like this computer. It is fast enough and can handle the small amount of work I do on it. My husband does a lot of surfing on it, and he seems pleased. We watch movies on it. The graphics are good and there is no skipping (We have enjoyed both Netflix and used the DVD player). We have also played some online games on it, with absolutely no problems there.
Excerpt: I got this computer for supprisingly cheap compared to most laptops and it turned out to be a awesome investment on my part! i use this computer everyday and i never get tired of it! the graphics are great! it has two processers so it is better than most other laptops and notebooks! the graphics are clear crisp and make the investment of buying it that much better!
Excerpt: This is my third laptop over a two and a half year period, and it's the second best. It beats the HP, which at the same price tag offered a smaller HDD, only half the memory, and a dysfunctional keyboard. Not to mention my HP's hard drive crashed after only 3 days. It loses to the Dell I had before the HP though.
