Summary: You sacrifice speed for graphics and graphics for speed. As an email reader, web surfer, average user machine, it's actually not bad. The day after I ordered this laptop, Wal-Mart sent me an email with all the laptops that were equal to this one but $100 or more cheaper on sale.
Summary: I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 15.6" laptop to replace my HP from 5 years ago. I had never tried an Acer before so I was a little nervous. Needless to say, I absolutely love my new Acer laptop! When my girl friend needed a new laptop, I recommended an Acer since she needed a backlit keyboard. We found this one on a website and based on the only 2-star review we were worried. But again, Acer has wowed both me and my girlfriend. She loves the laptop.
Summary: I spent a night to find what I want. Finally, I found this laptop having features matching the price. However, I was shocked when I received it. Despite the manufacturer's description, the keyboard's back light and the DVD were not there!!! as if someone removes the DVD and patches the whole... I returned it since amazon sells it a bit more expensive and the real spec!
