Review Acer Aspire 5253 (AMD Fusion) Notebook

 

Energy Saver. AMD Fusion enters the aggressively priced 400 Euro

Robust compact case; Low system noise at all times; Hardly any heat dissipation; Low power consumption; Short battery charge time; Very good battery run times

Poor application performance; Weak gaming performance; Interface locations; Keyboard layout; Very reflective display; Bad mono sound quality

Small multimedia machines with office ambitions: HP ProBook 4720s: matte 17 inch; Asus A52JU: small HD 6370 graphics; Lenovo B560: Optimal for 399 Euros.

Acer Aspire AS5253-BZ661

 

The Acer Aspire AS5253-BZ661 ($469.99 list at Costco) is a full-size desktop replacement laptop running on netbook parts. Those parts aren't Intel Atom based (which doesn't exist in anything beyond a 12-inch laptop) Rather, it uses what AMD calls an...

Priced like a netbook. Big screen is a plus. Full size keyboard included an adjacent numeric keypad. HDMI port included. Excellent battery life for the price

Slow-poke in speed tests. Plain design

The Acer AS5253-BZ661 desktop replacement laptop is a compelling play on price and battery life, using a netbook-based AMD Fusion APU to lead the charge.

Acer Aspire AS5253-BZ480

 

A 15.6-inch widescreen means you won't have to squint at the display. You can tile two applications side by side and still have room for a chat client like AOL's AIM or Digsby. It has a full size keyboard, and the adjacent numeric keypad (also...

...my first laptop... Yeah!

 

I have the Aspire 5253-BZ480 series (4GB RAM, 320GB HD). I just got it this month & I'm already very happy with this laptop. My dual-boot PC's HDs crapped out. Thanks to this laptop I was able to download & burn SystemRescueCD & UltraBootCD to help my...

Inexpensive; decent graphics; great keyboard; love the screen; great wifi; Win7 Home Premium 64bit installed, not Starter; almost as minimalist a design as Google CR-48 laptop; seperate numeric keypad (for number-crunching or Oolite playing); this is not

None with the laptop itself; just with Acer (would've been nice if I could've configured what I wanted at Acer website [like Dell/HP, etc] instead of waiting for a model to spring up that fit my needs; no pre-made Win 7 install CD (must use built-in app t

Speakers

 

Forgot to include in my last review

Internal Speakers Are Horrible! Horrible sound quality. Horrible volume control. Volume doesn't go loader than a faint whisper. Not good for watching movies, listening to music, or playing video games (audio)

Awesome Deal

 

Labtop is not that bad, really light weight, awesome spec's for the price i got it for, decent hard drive, great battery life all in all a good deal

Filled with bloatware causing slow proformace. this labtob can definatly go without the OEM bloatwere that comes preinstalled. it is lagging right out the box. best bet is to reformat right out the box with a retail copy

Bargain!

 

I added 2GB RAM and a 60GB SSD. A capable laptop for <$500 total

None, for the price

Trying to send it back for the 3rd time

 

This is the third time I am sending the computer back to the vendor to fix the hard drive. We only use it for browsing the web for recipes and youtube.

great

 

works great as the take home computer. easily does everything we need it for in the office plus the ability to take certain info out of the office for after hours problems. an easy way to keep track of the trucks and not have to stay at work.
