Summary: This laptop is a beauty. The screen is huge. I so wanted this purchase to work out. Except for the weight, this would have been the ideal laptop for my daughter, who is going to school online. I bought it because I have my own Acer Aspire, (model 5740-5780) and I love it. These are great computers. Mine is just 15.6", so I was planning to spoil my daughter with this one with its 17" screen. I also wanted Windows 7, because for now Windows 8 is wonky.
Summary: This was relatively a fast computer with reasonable price two years ago when I bought it. But has had a number of issues in less than two years of very light usage. keyboard broke and hard disk failed and had to be replaced. just a lot of cheap plastic and poor build quality.!!!
Summary: the Acer Aspire has been a good machine screen is good the key pad works good the touch key pad has been is very touchy every things has worked speed would be nice it is fast but i would like a faster machine
Summary: Wouldn't boot, I got a message that said something like "check cable! No boot disk detected. Insert boot disk and press any key" Please comment if you have a solution. I have emailed seller and will update review ASAP if they provide solution. Update: 4-21-13 After about a month of back-and-forth emailing, I was finally shipped a new drive. Now it works, but I find it it's not the laptop featured. It's an Acer 7560 and a 1.4 Ghz processor.
Summary: PRO: AMD's FX Quad Core processor will definitely plow through your basic office tasks without hesitation. After a bit of adjustment, the keyboard works quite well under normal conditions, and the trackpad is better than most I've dealt with. CON: Graphics is about average for student/home business use, unsuitable for gaming (no L3 cache, only 256 MB max memory, which is shared and set in the BIOS). 5400 RPM HDD is simply inappropriately slow for any use today.
Summary: I found this laptop screen very bright and clear. For it's size I found it lighter than some 14" LCD laptops. The speakers were loud and clear with no distortion. It came with Windows 7 home premium, so setup was a breeze.
Summary: The computer cost me $369.00 refurbished. A great value. Almost everything works great. The speakers are junk. In most cases they are not loud enough. Other than that I am totally satisfied with the computer.
The price is ridiculus compared with the computer you have

Summary: I bought this computer in 360$ plus 60$ for shipping to Ecuador and 43$ of tax, total of 463$, you can see a acer one hd of 11.6 " in 350$ with a simple intel atom, thats the reason because i think is one of my better buys, for the price of 463$ i can have a 17" laptop, with a phenom x4 processor, 4gb of ram and 500gb hard disc, the video is a mobility radeon hd with 256 mb dedicated, but you can share the ram with it and make it use a total of 1915 mb and it has hdmi...
Summary: This is by far the best laptop I've ever had. It delivers power, speed and a surprisingly good battery life for such a big screen. With a dedicated video card it's great for streaming video and plenty powerful enough to play games like Age of Empires 3, any of the total war games, World of Warcraft and many more without any difficulty!
