Summary: I bought this as a refurb and I love it. The screen is one of the biggest you can get and the high resolution is nice for my old eyes. It boots up fast (45 sec.) and shuts down in 10 seconds. I have not noticed any bugs in the hardware (unlike the Aspire 5336-2524 I also own (fan noise weirdness and screen singing at low brightness)). I use it more as a PC replacement, so I can't comment on the battery, but the size of it would make it a bit heavy to schlep around.
Summary: This is my first personal laptop and it has been a great purchase. I do a lot of photo editing and use it for Netflix this laptop has been able to handle everything I can throw at it without any problems. However I must add I paid $399 for mine around 8/2011 so I don't understand today's price.
Excerpt: Acer Apsire has made a decent computer for a decent price. I enjoy my computer and its decently quick and efficent. It surfs the internet easily. Most website video games (like on facebook) do take a moment to load but work just fine. Computer games run awesomly. I really didnt think they would. I play SIMS 3 on here and it glitches every once in a while. But i have had no serious problems with it.
Excerpt: I love my Acer. I enjoy being online. I'm online all the time. I answer my emails. I do surveys online. That is alot of fun. I'm a member of InboxDollars. I really enjoy being a member.

Excerpt: After graduating high school, and graduating from using a terrible Compaq Presario V2000 laptop that my sister let me borrow, I went to walmart to find a new laptop that was anything but what I had to deal with from the V2000. I actually got this by mistake, but I'm glad I bought this one over the older Aspire 7736 that I was eyeing.
Excerpt: Being a young student at college i needed something that was small, thin yet would get the job done. I write about 4 papers a week and do daily assignments for classes. I take my Acer net-book everywhere i go, classes, labs, and even to dinner. The keys fit my fingers like a glove and the screen is a perfect size. I can run 5 or more apps. and the computer doesn't freeze or overload. Even if you are looking for an Acer to just store pictures and music it is perfect.
