Excerpt: Got the aspire 5517 about 6 months ago it has windows 7. My last Computer started messing up 4 months affter I got it. This one is 6 months old no problems so far. It still runs like the day I got it. I use it for email downloading music and family pics. It is very user friendly.
Excerpt: This laptop is so easy to use. Acer's help center offers very detailed instructions, and help is also available through their website. The screen is crystal clear, with vivd colors and sharp images, and watching movies on this computer is as good as watching them on our LCD HD TV. Windows 7, which is the operating system for this model is great for students like me with the split screen option and a ton of memory for storing stuff.
Excerpt: The Acer Aspire 5517-1127 has been a great laptop to have. I bought it at a discount price from Staples.com (although Newegg.com is now cheaper) and have had a great experience with it. It worked well dual-booting. The battery has a good lifespan. The webcam and pre-installed software are fun to play with. Everything about it has satisfied my needs, being a student and a geek. I would recommend it if you don't want to spend too much on a laptop.

Excerpt: I have an Aspire 5517, notebook. I'm not real computer savey, but this computer does everything I need it to do. The price was under $350.00. It came with Windows Vista & a free upgrade to Windows 7. I upgraded to 7. I'm really happy with it! My Aspire has 3GB of memory, 160GB HDD,Super Multi DL drive,& a multi-in-1 card reader. I use my computer for e-mails, downloading music & pictures. I can do these things easily, with all the help available.
Excerpt: I am always on line and really enjoy editing my photos.. so this is the perfect laptop for me...The battery last and I can take it on the go..I really enjoy how easy it is to use and windows 7 that came with it...
Excerpt: I have always wanted a laptop. I searched for value of laptops this one fit my budget. It has alot of features I use on a daily basis. Like Microsoft office and very fast while using interent. This a a computer for a beginner as well as a computer novice. I throughly enjoy my acer laptop I use it everyday for all my needs. I would recomend this computer to everyone,. As I said earlier theis is a great value for the money.
Excerpt: I can do anything I want on my Acer!! I just love it. My main desk top computer gets hardly any use anymore. This little laptop... well, not so little-the screen is actually wide and quite nice in size...does everything I need to do and I'm still finding new things to do on it all the time. The only downside I have found is that the speakers do not always play at an audible level on youtube. I'm not sure if that has to do with youtube, or the laptop.
Excerpt: This was my first laptop. So I didn't want to spent to much for my first one. But it's been great. I have friends who have big name brands that are not as good. The only thing I'm not a big music on my computer person, but when watching videos the sound does not go up very loud.
