Excerpt: I decided to purchase a laptop since I had problems getting my wife and kids off their computers, it seemed that everyone had theirs but me. Well, we have to many PC's and I wanted something mobile, so I went looking for laptops. I searched high and low for one that was both within my price range and had what I wanted for a computer. I came across the ACER ASPIRE 7720-6569 and thought the price was right so I decided to purchase it on the spot.
Excerpt: we had done some researh before buying our laptop, and even though it did not have the pizzaz of some of the more known PC's, we went with friends opinions, and the fact that it was ranked in the top 3. We have been nothing but satisfied with our new lap top. The initial set up took minutes, and was completely idiot proof. The larger screen made the adjustment from our home computer to a laptop less obvious.
Excerpt: I have owned many computers and laptops. I HATE this one. Vista is a nightmare. No tutorials on the display. The book is useless. The machine has a bluray player the book has no mention of it or how to connect it to your HDTV. this is one of the reasons I purchased it.
Excerpt: Purchased this laptop in January 2008, so far it is working well for my needs. It is much faster than the old Compac I replaced. I am trying to get use to the new windows Vista. The only thing I had a problem with is that the computer automaticly had an Acer advertisement loaded as the screen saver. It took me forever to realize it was a screen saver instead of a program that was running.
Excerpt: As a freelance journalist, who lives by his computer – this laptop is by far the best buy I have ever made. With a 17 inch screen and a spacious keyboard, this laptop serves me well as a desktop workstation and a travel companion.
Summary: Awesome machine, full of top features, great connectivity, speedy enough for my requirements, although the battery life could perform a bit better. Generally impressed with virtually all the facilities provided by Acer. Cost a blinding £399 inc delivery from a tv advert site i can't obviously plug/mention on here but so far just over a year old and certainly no plans to upgrade or replace!
Summary: I brought this item around 2 years ago from amazon. It was best laptop i had had. Recently the motherboard/graphics card has gone and will cost over £150 to fix, apparently it is a very common accurance with this model of laptop unfortunatly! So all in all i would say dont bother getting this one, find a better one that wont be a waste of money!
Summary: I bought this unit back in 2008. I have had to send it back to acer twice. First was the screen stoppped working. Faulty wiring. ... Then it over heats like a hot plate you could fry eggs on it. Sent it back for a new fan... still crashes and over heats. So I bought a chill mat... nope still ober heats..
Summary: Fast enough to replace a dektop PC. Has Vista which occasionally crashes for no apparent region and requires rebooting to recover. Battery life isn't exceptional either. Bluetooth would have been nice. Otherwise, I am very happy with the graphics and connectivity.
