Review Acer Aspire 5250-E304G50Mnkk Notebook

 

Downgrade gone wrong. Acer's bread-and-butter notebook tries to attract buyers in the bargain-basement price bracket. We'll show you what happens when unabashed penny-pinching is applied to materials of construction, hardware, and port selection.

carefree chassis, very quiet, low power consumption, charges quickly

very low performance, not really suitable for games, no HDMI port, port placement, inferior input devices, glare-type screen, mediocre sound, low resolution webcam, We need the HDMI port. Ultra-low performance should be paired with a run time of at...

Excellent Laptop

 

This laptop is excellent. I have had no problems. I use it for home and love it. Sometimes a little slow, but for my occasional use, it's fine.

Home use only

 

I had this laptop for 5 weeks, and the Windows 7 would not load. It would just cycle that it was trying to load. Slow speed, but battery life is 4 hours. I would not recommend this laptop for anything but home use.

Acer Aspire 5250-BZ873 laptop

 

by shotgun2197 TRUSTWORTHY With a full keyboard including a Num pad, webcam, microphone, and a nice 15.6″ LCD screen, this laptop could not impress me more for it's price. There are a few cons, but very few at the most.
