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: 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.
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!
Summary: i've had it for over a year. no issues, whatsoever. a big screen, large keyboard. i wish the speakers were louder. i must use earbuds to listen to certain things. i don't use it for much more than downloading photos,internet browsing, email, shopping, and, an occasional document to write and print. IT CAME WITH OFFICE STARTER, YOU MUST PURCHASE THE ALREADY INSTALLED OFFICE PROGRAM. i purchased mine at walmart, for $475.00 to replace ANOTHER dead dell tower.
Summary: i bought this computer because the price was right. what i didnt expect was how nice and new this computer was. i bought a refurbished computer but when i got it it looked and worked like brand new. i have only had it a couple days but its way faster than i expected. this is a great laptop. i would recommend it as it stands now but we will see if it lasts well.
Summary: I purchased this model refurbished and am very happy. the screen is brighter and clearer than anything I own. love the full keyboard and everything just works. now for the down side.... the sound is not very loud compared to my other laptop but when I am at home and not in a vehicle that is not an issue. The webcam drivers were not installed on my refurbished unit and Acer has 2 diffirent web sites with driver downloads for it. one site worked, the other did not([...
Summary: I bought this computer and was disappointed to find the wifi never stays connected. It's very frustrating. When I researched it on line, I found this was a common problem with this model laptop. I love the size of the screen and the large hard drive. My cell phone and my View Sonic tablet have no problem using wifi. This laptop won't stay connected for more than a minute. I've tried upgrading the driver.
