Summary: I clubed together with family to buy my daughter this laptop, to celebrate her excellent exam results only to find that it is a great disappoint. The battery life is terrible. It is just over six months old and needs a new battery. Acer want £84.96 for the battery, labour, courier charge and VAT. YOU CAN ONLY TALK TO INDIA. It only has a six months warrantly according to them. They will not replace the battery free of charge even when quoting the SALES OF GOODS ACT 1979.
A systematic failure to provide goods fit for purpose

Summary: Purchased after reading favourable reviews for the Acer Aspire 5741 and Windows 7. Allthough activated to receive automatic Windows downloads nothing happened and with any internet activity the system constantly froze and had to be rebooted. On checking Windows downloads there were 150 "important" downloads awaiting, the tedious and conflicting process in downloading these eventually stabilised the system but 50 of these important downloads failed, with what ongoing risk...
Summary: I am completely disappointed with Acer. I've just received my new notebook, opened and the screen display doesn't work! The right third part of the screen has multicolor narrow stripes! If it is a hardware problem, it is really bad. And if it is a matter of driver, it is terrible of them that they don't update the drivers before releasing the product. Now I have to wait to send it back, wait further to get a new one that I think it won't be Acer!
Summary: I was absolutely horrified when this item arrived and did not include the ATI Radeon graphics as described in the ad. Instead, the one which arrived has an intel graphics chip. I've been trying to find a decent laptop with a graphics card for a while now. THIS ITEM WAS NOT AS DESCRIBED. It also didn't arrive with bluetooth.
Summary: Ho comprato questo portatile ad agosto 2010 quando mi è morto il mio precedente acer. L'ho trovato in offerta e l'ho acquistato subito per le sue notevoli caratteristiche tecniche. Ho la versione che monta i5 come processore e hard disk da 500GB. Non sono per niente contento di questo notebook.
