Good to start with

  • 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: It is a good computer but Windows 8 probably works better with a touch screen so I guess windows 7 would have worked better.

  • Summary: Got this for a Christmas present from Walmart. First the good part: it weighs much less than my old Acer, it cost $338.00, has a webcam [works fine], it is very quiet, and everything seems to be working normally.

  • Summary: The computer arrived in good condition, and in general is fine. However, the wireless network card was damaged, not connected to any wifi network, and after being checked by a technician, it was determined that the card was not working.

  • Summary: I love acer computers- I had just bought a timelinex that died on me after 3 days, so I purchased this one. For an i5, this computer is unfortunately a bit sluggish- enough so that I went to upgrade the ram right away(it's only 4 out of box).

  • Excerpt: This laptop has everything you really need for home use. It has a DVD player and webcam and has quite a good sized hard drive of 500GB. I use this laptop all the time, to do stuff like working and gaming, in fact, I am using it to write this review right now.

Good laptop, but the LED screens tend to die within 2 years

  • Summary: Bought this laptop around 20 months ago and have been relatively happy with it overall. The processor seems pretty good and quick, and it has provided better performance than required – it was mostly bought for college work, but I’ve messed about on some games and it seems to perform ok.
