A really great machine with expandability for great price.

Summary: I used to have one like this a few years ago that wound up dying of a coffeee spill. I always enjoyed it and thought it was a good deal this time around on Ebay. I've learnt some ways of modifying it later on. As far as Pros and cons go, all the cons have to do with things that i"ll fix later.
Summary: After about three years of using this laptop I have to say I started to really despise it. It crashed every time I'd try to run a powerful program and the dust collection in it was pretty heavy.
Summary: First laptop I ever bought. Paid $379 + tax on sale. Original HDD lasted just over 2 years. Still works but I got a couple errors for Disc degradation. Meaning it was wearing out. Swapped out original 320GB HDD for Crucial 240GB SSD. Speed was a noticeable difference.
Summary: Have used this laptop (Normal Useage) for around 14 months and the keyboard and everything feels still tight the battery still holds about a 2+ hr. charge. Really no problems but I do try and treat my moble devices with extra care, which I find always pays off in the long run.
Summary: To all of those looking for not a good but a great computer for the price, make sure you get to see this one, not pricy and very easy to carry and work with, it has all the necessary stuff for you to work without worries.
Summary: I have purchased my 5th Acer Aspire. All of my kids have one and I bought one for my self and wife. They take a lot of abuse and work very well. My kids are in college and use them every day. Get used to it before you rate them.
Summary: I had this computer for almost 3 years now. I dont have this model i got the cheaper one that was pentium core and just 320gb of memory with 4gb of ram. On the second day of use it gave me blue screen and i got scare but thankfully was not done it again.
Summary: Acer is a good quality product and the i3 is fast, but definitely more affordable than the i5 or i7, which is why I chose it. You will have to buy a Microsoft Office, as it does not come with the computer, but for the price, it's still good.
