Summary: I wanted to be able to play and digitize Blu-Ray movies. On receiving the notebook, I put it to the test. The optical Blu-Ray drive out-of-the-box hung up, stuttered and sputtered--it was defective. I was not able to play any dvd and it did ruin data on some non-Blu-Ray disks I used to try to load data to the PC. In fairness, it was in a refurbished PC. I cannot be certain that the product manufacturer can be fully held accountable.
Summary: I've had this a little over a month now and I can say I am pleased with it. Considering I got it for 350 it was a steal. It does freeze up for about 3 seconds every now and then but it doesn't happen enough for me to hate it. Love that i can play my bluray discs on this instead of having to use a TV. Overall good buy.
Excerpt: The acer AS5745-7633 15.6 inch notebook laptop computer has been a great purchase that I made a few months ago. I was searching for a laptop that would not break the bank but also had the latest technology features so that I wasn't already purchasing an outdated machine. The i5 core processor means this laptop is running at super fast speeds and can be used to perform different gaming options if that is something you are interested in.
This laptop is great if all you do is surf the web...

Excerpt: I got this laptop for my birthday this last year. It has been great for checking my Facebook, watching YouTube videos, checking my e-mail, and playing simple online games. A down side to this laptop is that it is very slow and does not process very fast. I try to watch videos on Hulu and it usually makes the laptop crash, resulting in me having to restart the entire laptop. As far as Microsoft Office 2007, it has great features but again, it's very slow.
Excerpt: This may be a "budget laptop," but for 95% of PC users this laptop is more than enough. I bought this for my dad at around 370 bux. The most resource using activity he will do is probably HD youtube or netflix videos. This laptop handles it perfect. Let me do all the pros and cons: Pros: 1) excellent value. it may be called a budget laptop, but the build quality is excellent. Doesnt feel cheap unless you compare it a macbook pro! 2) runs cool.
Excerpt: I purchased one of these and for the price it has been wonderful.. I have no lag and I play online games all the time. It's very light weight too which has been proven to be a life saver on my back while traveling. The battery seems to last much longer then my previous laptop too! I highly recommend this product especially for the price!
Excerpt: its a pretty good laptop, but the macs are way better. its good if you dont want to spend too much money and just want a simple laptop that does simple laptop stuff. i would'nt recomend it to someone who likes to have the best that is out there. if you're low on money, this is the computer thats right for you.

Excerpt: This is a good gemeral purpose laptop for the mid level user. Has a bit ti much proprietary software to be really user friendly for the low level user. Not enough ram or HD for a tech savvy user. But if you want to use it for email and general everyday apps. it's a decent machine at a fair price in most markets.
Excerpt: i believ its a good stsem for standard users. If you are more into tech style formats its not for you. You have to upload alot of software in order to get it to the potential you like it to be at whether your burning movies or into program designing.Other than that it is a good canidate for newbies.
