Excerpt: I'm a college student, so the Acer Aspire 5741Z-5433 fit perfectly in my budget. I purchased it at Staples on sale for under $400. Specs include Windows 7, an Intel Pentium processor P6000, Intel HD Graphics, 4 GB DDR3 memory, 320 GB HDD, DVD-Super Multi DL drive, wireless card 802.11, 6-cell Li-ion battery and a 15.6 " HD LED LCD. I love everything about this laptop, except for a few features (some which I have easily adapted). The screen is high-gloss, which I...
Summary: "Goddaughter" wanted a basic DVD player with wi-fi capability for when she upgrades to wi-fi. Due to family circumstances, couldn't afford a fancy, or much else, and knows only a minimum about computers. I do a lot of helping friends and family with computer stuff, but am no techie. Low price was paramount, but with decent performance (no heavy games, no big graphics beyond playing the DVD, no major programs..
Summary: I bought this laptop for my brother now that he is starting college, love the numeric keys included in the keyboard. So far the performance is great, quick turn on and turn off. For the specs we were looking for this was an excelent deal.
Summary: I'll start with my experience. I have been working with and on computers for 15 years and have been in the IT industry for the past 5. In the past I have had desktops and laptops from compaq, dell, HP, and toshiba. Acer as a brand was never in my spotlight. I've been wary of their quality since they were willing to purchase such an awful company as emachines.
Summary: I comparison shopped for 60 days and lucked out when I saw this. It had all the features I was looking for at a good price. I had no experience with Acer but so far my expectations have been exceeded.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Great pricefeatures, Long Battery Life, Quality Display, Quiet, Solid fit and finish
Summary: I have had this pc for a couple of months and it has performed very well. I have not had any issues with it. It is very fast, dependable, and light. While it is not loaded with a lot of programs or bloat ware, it has one of the latest processors and sufficient memory for surfing the net, email, and word processing, which is all I really do. It also loads my pics very quick and starts up quickly.
Summary: I ordered this laptop on 5/25, after reading good reviews on Newegg and CNet. I received it on 5/26 (One Day Shipping through Amazon Prime). My initial impressions were that, although the exterior leaves something to be desired (it's very plain and functional-looking), the computer seems very sturdy and well-built. The keyboard is full sized and easy to type on.
Summary: I was in the middle of changing jobs when my home laptop suffered a fatal accident (apparently computers don't like beer). Since I knew that I would probably receive a company laptop when I started my new job I just wanted something to hold me over. This computer was exactly what I was looking for. Each time that I go computer shopping I am always amazed at how much the top-of-lines cost but equally surprised by the lower-end computers.

Summary: I have now owned my Aspire 5741 for just over a year, and it has managed everything i have asked it too with ease. I am an undergraduate student so my demands on my laptop include heavy word processing and internet researching, and therefore good multitasking capabilities, good music and video playback, a strong wireless receiver for those times on campus when signal is fading, and the ability to play the odd computer game or two.
Pros: Media playback, CPU speed, price, display, large keyboard, multitasking
Cons: build quality may be sketchy, may be too big for many

Summary: I've been using this laptop at uni and over the summer for about 4 months now, so heres my review of it so far: Layout and ease of use: Of all the laptops i've seen around lately, this is definitely one of my favourites. It's sleek, light, with a nice design cross hatch design on the front. The speaker grill is nicely placed above the keyboard right across the width of the laptop .
Pros: Sleek design; fantastic keyboard layout; reliable and smooth to run; some nice features
Cons: Quite poor 3D graphics performance; could have more RAM or HDD for the price
