Summary: Very good Laptop for the Price. Much faster than my 5 year old Acer with Vista. I love the keyboard with the High Relief letters & numbers. Happy with the Intel pentium chip. Better than AMD. Most of all, it has Windows 7. The only negative is that I had to remove a lot of nusiance programs with Pop-up ads. Now it is super fast the way it was meant to be.
Summary: Walmart had the largest selection of Window 7 laptops , most places had no Window 7 available. I tried the 8.1 from Sams club and returned it. We bought two Acer Window 7 here from Walmart, we are pleased with both units, easy to set up and are working top notch. Acer and Walmart= 5 STARS each. The Acer Aspire PC has a solid feel when you are using it, I have a Acer desktop that is several years old and never had a problem.
Summary: I would not recommend this as a gaming machine, because the Intel Celeron 2957U is not a high-performance CPU. But for average work, browsing, email, photo editing and other general tasks, this computer is a very good value. Initial setup was particularly easy, partly because Acer pre-installs almost no bloatware. The computer was easy to secure, easy to configure a custom log-on screen, and easy to create media for a "emergency restore" if ever needed.
Pros: Ample memory and internal disc, smooth performance, beautiful display, almost no bloatware pre-installed, easy to set up.
Cons: Has McAfee trial version pre-installed. Has Norton Backup pre-installed. The power connector is a right-angle type, and it connects immediately beside the DVD tray. If the cable is not positioned toward the rear of the computer, the DVD tray can not open. It is not a critical flaw, but for anybody who does not pay attention to such things, there is the potential to damage the DVD tray.
Summary: I got another Acer after my other one finally died on me. It lasted a good four or five years. This one is pretty but it restarts constantly when I am in the middle of doing things without warning and just has lots of little "bugs" to it. Things that bug me anyway. The mouse is a little rough to use, not nice and smooth like my old one. Overall, I think I paid too much for it and I am not in love with it by any stretch.
Summary: Wanted to replace my older Acer laptop. Had almost decided on HP but did not want Windows 8. This laptop is great. Fast, efficient, easy. Keyboard is easy to keep clean. Textured keys are wonderful. Very happy with it!
