Summary: The Acer Extensa series is a decent laptop, but not what I would consider to be the best. It functions fine and has nice features, but they have a over sensitive track pad, which makes using an external mouse almost mandatory. They also have one fatal flaw. The external top cover. They are VERY prone to cracking near the hinges, which renders the screen unable to open or close. I've needed to replace mine 3 times. Not an inexpensive repair.
Excerpt: I've had my Acer Extensa 4420 Laptop for about a year and a half now. I paid $400 at Best Buy and got an awesome deal. I kinda figured that since I didn't pay a lot for it, it probably wouldn't be the greatest, but I was wrong. I personally don't like to use the built in mouse, so I Purchased a Logitech Wireless Mouse. It works great! I have installed MS Office, and lots of games and such, and my laptop is NOT slow. I have tons of music and tons of photos, as well.
Excerpt: Acer extensa computers work really well, mine came loaded with lots of things. The Acer computers are relatively enexpensive. I have had mine for about a year, and I bought my husband one a couple of months ago for his birthday. My husband loves his computer, as do I. Acers customer service is not that great though, so it is a really good thing they make a good computer.
Excerpt: this computer is suprisingly good... i got ine on sale for 500, and it is supprisingly good... only a 14.1 inch screen, but that is pretty good for an everyday laptop, the keyboard is curved so that it feals better to type on... i really like this system. Also i have not had problems with vista while using it... most of the people who have trouble with vista have bad computers, or dont know how to use them (though acer has a program that helps make vista easier to use...
Excerpt: Acer Extensa 4420 was the perfect choice for me because I am a college student on a budget. I was able to get some great specs forwhat i needed to do for apriceI could afford. Performance: The 2GB DDR2 was a great upgrade from myolder laptop which had 512MB for the RAM. Inoticed a huge difference in speed and ease of use. I could have several programs running at the sme time without the CPU getting clogged up and the speed of ofallthe programs slowing down.
Acer Ectensa EX44320-5910 PC note book is pretty great.

Excerpt: I really like the Accer Laptop because it has been working almost perfect for what I need a laptop to do which is email and watch movies online. The only complaint I have with this laptop is that the disc drive broke during the first three months of owning the computer. The Crystal eye camera is pretty awesome. It makes taking pictures really easy and kinda fun.
Excerpt: I bought this laptop expecting to only use it for the basics. Those being email, social networking sites and school stuff. However, upon installing World of Warcraft I found that my computer ran just as smoothly, if not moreso, than my boyfriends more expansive and updated desktop. I rarely have lag problems (at least in reference to the computers end of the deal :)) and my computer never gets too hot. It's not Alienware, but the Extensa 4420 holds up more than it's...
Good laptop for someone who is just going to check their email

Excerpt: I purchased this laptop after the previous one had finally died. Starting out is was great and fast but it did become slow quickly. I scanned, cleaned it up and psychotically deleted cookies everyday yet it was painfully slow even though I never visited any harmful sites. The keys easily broke off and after about seven months the back hinges snapped and I was forced to tape it and keep a stack of books behind it.
Great value for money... except for one small thing!

Summary: This laptop was a "hand me down" so to speak and its main function was so family/guests could use it to go online to avoid the unpleasantness that goes along with visitors tampering with personal files or accessing other sensitive data. It was only recently that the CPU fan in my regular laptop took a nosedive so I had no choice but to use this one as a fill-in. I have to admit this laptop is not shy when it comes to delivering on productivity.
Summary: I have had my acer for 4 years now. It has been a great computer!! I am running out of memory, BUT I am also using it as a home business computer so it has ALOT on it. Cant beat the quality for the price!
