Summary: I recommended and purchased this for a friend. It worked for a little or a year and then started having hang problems. Acer is aware of the problem but the only information you get is to ship it in for repairs. I suspect its a hard disc problem that can be easily fixed for about $60 rather than the $200 Acer will charge. This same thing has recently happened to by son-in-laws 5750, which I also recommend. Acer use to make a good product at a reasonable price.
Summary: A useful laptop for business. It runs all the accounting and book keeping programs with the fastest opening speed I have seen on a laptop. My kid complains it can't play some high end graphics games but that keeps him off the thing so I view that as a positive. It opens programs fast is all I really care about. It's a tough little piece too. I've dropped it a few times and said bugger, but it started with no problems.
Summary: Acer has always made quality products at a good price, so when I saw this item I bought it for a friend who had a crappy Dell, even refurbished, it is better than Dell or HP. It came with a 2 gig processor, would have liked a 2.4, but the memory and hard drive make up for the diffrence, as if needed I can always upgrade. In comparrison to Dell and HP, this Acer is a much better notebook, just by the way it was built, the price and what you get included.
Summary: I bought this laptop for my son and after close to two years, it is still working without any issues. Actually, this is the second Acer Laptop that we have purchased and I find that the product is sturdily built.
Summary: Worked well for first 90 days. On day 91 it kept losing internet connectivity as I use wireless. Chat person was nice and we tried many fixes to no avail. They had me send it back to Texas. The tech did nothing. Said it worked and mailed it back. It worked for about a month and now here it goes again with the same problem. Acer is the WORST! I own a Samsung (my husband uses it) and now just bought a Dell Inspirion, we had one before and it was great.
