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: bought this a while back just now getting around to rating. Nice laptop for the price, husband uses it to watch movies and watch football. Gradddaughter uses to play her games and it runs fine no probelms. Have had no problems with it still runs as if new. Got this product on time and packaging was good no damage.

Summary: I paid around $800 dollars for this baby and it is still going strong I would highly recommend this brand and if you can get this particular computer it is well worth it. It will be going 2 years and runs almost like brand new..
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: 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.
