Summary: I have had mine about 3-1/2 years. I immediately got wireless keyboard and mouse. The DVD drive broke after a couple years, had to buy an external one. Earphone jack went out about the same time, got a USB adapter. I hadn't realized it didn't have Bluetooth.
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.
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.
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.
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.
