Excerpt: Years ago Acer tried to gain commercial advantage by putting inferior components into their laptops. The result was damage to their reputation. Over the last 3 years they have really pulled up their socks and put some quality back into the brand and this notebook is no different. When you don't want to spend a lot of money chasing a brand name but you do want to be able to rely on what you are buying then Acer is the right choice.
Excerpt: I have had this laptop for a little over 6 months now and I'm pretty pleased with it. It runs things quickly and doesnt freeze up. One thing that I really need to be upfront about though is: THE SOUND IS HORRIBLE!!!!!!! just horrible. you WILL need to get speakers to go with the laptop or headphones. I just bought some speakers since i dont really move the laptop around anyways. But, the sound thing really does limit its portability. Like, if you want to go to...
Excerpt: This product is unmatched when it comes to quality. The price is a little unreasonable, but for the most part you are getting what you paid for. Its really easy to use, so easy in fact a cave man could do it. The other drawback that I found with this item was the difficulty changing the settings. I mean it gets you where you need to go, but to go any further is a challenge.
Excerpt: The Acer Aspire 5742 (LXR4P02020) PC Notebook was my choice this past Christmas season when I needed to get a new laptop to replace my 2000 Dell laptop that finally bit the dust for good. I have never purchased a computer from the Acer brand, but it seems to be one of the leading lower-priced manufacturers and in general has good reviews. I used to only buy Dell but I've had quite a bit of trouble with them, in both laptops and PCs, so I was ready to try something...
Excerpt: Some people would say that an acer laptop is no good. I seem to disagree with them. I am a first time acer laptop buyer and the product has worked very well for me. My opinion is in order to have a good computer you need to watch what websites that you go on. Alot of websites can automatically download something onto your computer without you even knowing it. That is what has happened to alot of my computers in the past. Also, to keep a spyware blocker on you computer.
Excerpt: The laptop is really good. All updates come to an timley manner. The screen is clear, and is easy to work with to fit your preference. The keyboard is bigger, allowing an easier time to type. Downfall is though, the laptop freezes and "sputters" when plugging in a device or charger or unplugging a device or charger from it.

Excerpt: Acer Laptops have always been top on my list they last longer than other laptops and come with great programs, they are also very cheap... so it wont hurt your pocket book... most of them come with web cams witch is very convientent for us sense we travel quite a bit. The only downfall i have encountered were the battery life isnt as long as other laptops.
Excerpt: I really enjoy using my Acer Notebook. It has a wonderful Windows Media Player. It also has a webcam. The webcam can take pictures and can be used to video chat on Windows Live Messenger. I have found that the touchpad is also easy to use. It easily moves the pointer but it isn't too sensitive. If it hasn't been used for a while, the log on process can take a little longer than desired.
Excerpt: The laptop offers excellent performance, and rich media features, and is fast and responsive. It has a 15.6" LCD display. It gives you everything you need for every day tasks and enjoy your media. It has an Intel Core i3-370M processor, (which is great) 2.4GHz, 3MB L3 Cache, and 320GB SATA hard drive. Also has an 8X SuperMulti double-layer DVD burner. It includes a web cam that works great.
Excerpt: I got this laptop last fall for my dad as he was in need of some good lappy which can do some programming as well as high end gamming. I am really surprized with the way things going on for my dad on this wonder. This laptop is not that bulky as I was expecting. This piece has some excellent high end features at a very comparitive cost. I was in need of searching a laptop which has a good processor with sufficient clock speed.
