great value but acer is not the best brand out there
13 December 2011
Summary: great value for the price, and overall a great laptop. i dont recommend if you need to run tons of programs at the same time. the 4 GB of ram just is not enough to run 12-15 programs simultaneously. it freezes, etc. battery life isnt the best, but overall this is a great value for the price. it has all the bells and whistles you need. and huge screen is really nice for working long hours.
Summary: I bought this computer from walmart during a back to school sale, it was only around 250 dollars. Usually they are around 450 dollars. Alot of the plastic on the laptop is cheap as the plastic next to my power button came off, lose, not broken, and if you drop it ( lol) some of the bottom plastic will pop out even though it is screwed in tightly or the computer will screech and the sreen will go black. I didn't drop it from high either.
Summary: The Acer Aspire AS7552g-6436 is an extremely powerful and reliable laptop. I do everything from play bioshock 2 with max graphics to heavily using adobe illustrater cs5. In which the screen size is great for. In short this computer has the power and versatility to run any program you want with ease.
Summary: Love It! Have been in need of a new Laptop for some time, my old one was on it's last legs, going sooooooo sllllooooooowwwwww and driving me crazy. This new Acer is a breath of fresh air and I can actually do what I need to do at the speed I need to do it at. It's also a larger size which makes it much nicer, although I may need to get a new larger bag to carry it in, it's well worth it!
Summary: For the price this laptop can't be beat. I added another 2GB stick of RAM as soon as I got it to bump the total to 6GB. It runs the games I play (Civ4, CoD4, CS:S) with medium settings at 60+ FPS. Wireless works well for my uses (desktop replacement). It did come with alot of bloatware but an hour or so of uninstalling the stuff I don't need and it's clean. One bad point is that the hard drive is only 5400rpm.
Summary: i purchased this laptop after returning a msi fx 400 14inch laptop that i had purchased from another retailer was not happy with the quality of the msi. this acer iS a BEAST it plays every game that i have put in it nba 2k11, mlb 2k11 blac ops, battle field bad company 2, need for speed hot pursuit all on high settings. was kind of skeptical about a 17 inch screen cause i was so use to 14 and 15 inch screens but i love my big 17 inch screen especially when gaming.
Summary: I ordered this computer for my son. He is off to college this year and the computer does everything that he will need for college. My son is very happy with high performance and multi-tasking which he needs for school work. The computer does everything it says it was designed to do.
Summary: Giant 17" screen, hdmi and plenty of processing power. My parents use this as their multimedia computer sending video and audio to their television via a 25 foot hdmi cable. It can output HD video with ease, and does all other tasks well. Only downside I can see is the lack of page up/down buttons next to the arrow keys (like on a Lenovo laptop). Also I'm not a fan of the "chicklet" style keyboard. A great computer for the price.
Summary: Okay everyone just to let you know I am a gamer! I bought this to take with me to work and to school. So far I am very pleased with the laptop. The screen is epic. I have read a few complaints on the key board. Now I am very picking when it comes to my peripherals. I have always carried around a desktop key board for my gaming on the go, along with a mouse because who wants to play video games on a track pad?
