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: 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: This is my second Acer laptop that I have owned, first one was a bit smaller (15.6") but have had no problems with either one. About this particular model, it is super-fast, tons of hard drive storage & the 17.3" screen display is awesome! Comes with 4GB of RAM, added another 4GB to mine & now there's no slowing this puppy down. I love this laptop, it's built tough, very attractive design & will do just about anything a much more expensive laptop can do.
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([...
