Summary: This laptop is simply awesome. It is fast, and is perfect for everyday use. In fact, there is only 1 flaw - the battery. The battery is simply awful, and keeps flashing alot. Other than that, its cool!
Summary: Quick delivery from Amazon, no complaints as ever. Happy with the laptop, decent spec for the price, fan a bit dodgy a while ago, fixed it literally by smacking the underside of the fan very hard. Well worth the purchase. Would've prefered a cool cat Apple but funds were limited.
Summary: The laptop is really good value for money, its fast and it does everything a budget laptop should do. The only problem is the screen, it is very reflective and near impossible to view outside in bright sunlight apart from that it is worth the money.
ACER ASPIRE 5741, Excellent laptop fully worth the money
14 January 2011
Excerpt: I have always been a fan of acer for its performance and very good prise, This is the second time i bought the acer laptop for myself. This laptop with i3 3gb ram is good for people who are looking for laptops for general use, specially if you are a student.
Pros: Fast , easy to use good features . Best value for money
Summary: Love this lap top. Two flaws hence 4 stars not 5. Firstly I miss the caps lock light. Secondly, I would prefer the arrow keys to be a little raised or spaced a little further away from the rest of the keys. Apart from that its a fab laptop.
Summary: I bought this laptop few months ago and i am very pleased with my choice. i was torn between Sony Vaio and aspire 5741, app Vaio has slower processor. My sister has Vaio and she paid near enuff a grand and it crashes and is noisy. when i got this one i told her trade in Vaio for Aspire 5471.
Summary: I've not bought an Acer product before but have heard their laptops come highly recommended and couldn't agree more. This is a great laptop it's easy to use and not bundled with too much sofware. I've bought a previous 15.6" laptop in the past but this one is slightly wider.
