Summary: Have had this laptop since early 2009. On the positive side the processor is good, and still better in terms of GHz than some of the PCs around today at 300 pounds-ish. On the negative side, there are major issues with the fan, and since the early days of buying it, it overheated.

Summary: Bought this laptop in May 2009 & have had nothing but problems from the start. Now, lwss than 2 years latter it has packed up completely. Have done some research on the internet & it appears that it is a fairly common problem with Acer's. I wish I had done this before buying.

Excerpt: After buying this product i was overly excited as it was a great peice of kit and was £550, which in my opinion is very good value for money. All the specs were exactly what i wanted as i needed a laptop with a dedicated graphics card. It was so good that i got one for my partner as well.
Pros: Good speed, nice looking, great peice of kit
Summary: After having this laptop for 3 months I felt there are a couple of things you should know. Its quick enough for me but then I am not a gamer. The screen is bright, in fact its excellent. Vista works ok...I dont see what all the trouble is about to be honest.
