Excerpt: I purchased this laptop 3 months ago from Staples. Its a Acer Aspire 5741. When I walked into Staples I was planning on purchasing an HP, but the salesman quickly compared the two laptops and said that the Acer Aspire would leave the HP laptop in the dust and he was right! It was very easy set up. I quickly made this laptop my own by adding photos and movies.
Summary: recieved this unit the day after ordering and was very well packaged. the laptop itself is beautiful to look st and very sleek and modern in its design. It feels very sturdy and while the battery isnt amazing, its more then adiquite for its spec and recharges extreamely fast. There has been some complaints about the speaker/sound quality of this unit but i really dont see the issue with this, its a little tinny and lacks bass but again its more then suitable for most day...

14 January 2011
Excerpt: "...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. this is something which has all you need except bluetooth. But if you are looking for a gaming laptop this is not for you but its good for games fifa and PES etc. Performance is excellent with great features ...
Pros: Fast , easy to use good features . Best value for money
Summary: Laptop was delivered very quick with no problems. Set up was easy and connection to internet simple and proven to be fast and reliable via the wireless link. Laptop is speedy and handles my day to day work and also has no trouble with daughters video and picture manipulation. Build quality is reasonable however still early days (1 month old)for reliability but all signs are that the laptop represents excellent value for money for a medium powered machine.
Summary: I love my Acer Aspire 5741. Mind you it's my first laptop and I'm new to the experience of being able to sit and type anywhere. Or connect it to the TV with an HDMI cable and watch episodes of Cracker and Sherlock Holmes for free on Lovefilm. I got this from the [...] for only [...] and for that I think it's pretty good, fast, decent memory and good HDD - although it was supposed to be 320Gb and straight away it told me it only had 283Gb - so where did the 37Gb go?
Summary: This is one of the best laptop's I've used, lost lasting battery and very fast processor. Nice comfortable keyboard and touch pad as well. Screen has an amazing picture and displays HD video well. 10 out of 10 would defiantly recommend.
Summary: bought to replace my old laptop very easy to setup had a problem with wi-fi not working properly after 3 weeks told amazon replacement sent in 3 days ,windows 7 better than vista this laptop is excellent value for the money with 320 gb hardrive and i3 processor. battery life not that long about 1 hr 15 mins keyboard nice and light to use and got a hdmi out let to connect to telly to watch those hd films would i buy again?
Summary: I have bought Acer laptop and wasn't really sure if I made the right decision.I was pleasantly surprised . First delivery was fast and then the laptop was very good so far.I only miss bluetooth but I knew it wasn't in specs. I would happily recommend this laptop.
Summary: Excellent value for money, well-packed laptop, delivered in less than 24hours. Fast and quiet, and easy to set up with no problems whatsoever. Excellent resolution and bright display, with HDMI output to TV etc. Battery lasts about 4 hours as advertised. Other buyers should note the instructions for conditioning the battery on first use to maximise capacity (full charge and discharge cycles) which are buried in the manual and not in the quick set-up instructions.
