Just say no...

Piece of junk

  • Summary: DON'T BUY IT. You can hear the hard drive running, the sound is terrible and the entire body flexes. The 2005 Compaq Presario that I'm typing this review on is of better quality!

  • Summary: Im guessing the majority of people gave this laptop a review as soon as they got it, ive had mine 7 months now and im missing quite a few keys and can feel from pressing another few that they will also fall out soon too.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this Acer 5742Z ten months ago from Argos in the UK. It has a P6200 CPU, 6GB DDR3, and 320GB HDD so it should be pretty quick, after getting it back home it had to go straight back again because the Norton AV wouldnt load and now with hindsight I should have realised it was a bad un!.
