Junk. My iphone 3GS is faster
11 June 2012
Summary: Absolutely pure junk. This netbook is barely capable of performing its basic function: browsing the internet. All the search engines sites take forever to load. Youtube takes forever to load. Amazon.com takes forever to load. Opening folders, creating folders, basic computer functions are super slow. My iPhone 3GS is faster at loading pages than this. 1G of RAM, sounds a lot, but 256 MB goes to video memory and you have a recipe for a useless netbook.
Summary: Bought about 9 months ago as a portable laptop for vacation traveling. It is indeed very slow and freezes up all the time even with simple operations like navigating through folders or opening simple websites. I removed all the bloatware, installed 2Gb of memory, no luck. Still slow and you need patience to work with it. Good side is amazing battery life, works for a few hours with a full charge. Wonder if it is a hardware problem or Windows 7 Starter.
Summary: I bought this Acer 5 weeks ago and have since found that software agreements can not be finalized because there is no page reduction so you can see and approve the terms and conditions. My security provider is one that upsets the most, it took 4 weeks before I could automatically run a scan because I could not get to the approval block.
Will not last very long I was warned and didn't listen...
19 April 2011
Summary: I purchased my Acer Aspire in Oct. 2009. I worked until March 2011... that's 1 year and 5 months! I was told they last about 1 year but did not listen. I see now what the warning was about. Don't waste your money on it.
Summary: to sit for days waiting. For about the first 30 days everything was fine but suddenly the computer crashed. After realizing the hardware was not at fault I reloaded the software which I did not expect to need to do since the computer was new. However the software did not completely reload so I called Acer. If you want someone that can speak English but can't understand English this is the number to call.
Summary: war eigentlich anfangs zufrieden, allerdings ist nach 6 1/2 Monaten der Bildschirm kaputt. kann das Netbook nur noch über einen Extra-Screen betreiben. Kann auch keinen Kontakt zum Verkäufer aufnehmen und Amazon verweigert die Rücknahme. klarer Fehlkauf.
