Summary: The laptop arrived on time. Window Vista keeps turning on and off the wireless connection. The laptop for some reason only runs on AC. The battery appears as "plugged in, not charging" and can't find a way to make it charge the battery. So, can't run the laptop on battery either!
Summary: I'm a graphic designer and this was my first laptop. It was so fast and that's useful because i can show and change in real time my works in front of the customer. The screen is also a good point, it's easy to show what's in the computer to a bunch of people.
Pros: Performance, keyboard, screen.
Cons: DVD Recorder, speakers, Wi-fi and specially HEAT!!
Summary: This Laptop, is good overall, but... The heat is something every First-Person-Shooter gamer will hate! It runs fast though, when you think about what grapichs it can handle before it going to slow down drastically.
Pros: It is actually quite good when it comes to all the new games, it runs them fast, and without any big issues that you will find with other computers.
Cons: It is very hot where you usually have your left hand, when you play games like "WoW" then you need the "W,A;S;D" to move, and if you try to have your hand on to the computer, then you will burn yourself.
Excerpt: Fantastic laptop for someone who wants to do relatively basic tasks. It looks stylish with the white keyboard and shiny black back. It also has one touch commands for email, bluetooth, and wireless internet.
Summary: I bought this laptop for Christmas 08. its been like 13 months now, and the battery is literally dead. it can last just a little over 10 minutes now. In the beginning though, however, this was THE best laptop i ever laid my hands on.
Good for people who want an entertainment laptop, but not without faults.

Excerpt: Anyone wanting a powerful laptop for a decent price ideal for web-browsing, data storage, work and multimedia functions could do a lot worse than the Acer 5920. It is nippy even when running a range of demanding applications and doesn't suffer from overheating as much as some laptops can.
quite a good little laptop if dvd drive didn't keep vanishing

Summary: I purchased my Acer 5920 in March 2008,initialy i was very pleased with my purchase.Unfortunately in Nov 2008 my dvd drive just dissapeared from my notebook.Amazon offered to replace it (I was in Greece at the time) so they suggested I contact Acer I did and they said they were aware that this...
Summary: I do like this laptop, it is reliable and has never let me down. It has even had water spilt over the keyboard, it shut down, but after a few hours of drying with a hairdryer on warm it worked fine and has never caused me a problem. It the power to cope with lots of applications.
Pros: Solid machine, never let me down
Cons: casing has crumbled at the back & optical drive broken within 12 months
Excerpt: I bought this in August 2008 for $539.99 based on reviews from reputable sites and publications (i.e. Cnet, Consumer Reports, etc.), and it is just HORRIBLE! Within 2 months, the webcam locked up and it's colors began to fade with horizontal green lines across the image.
