Great little internet computer


Very light weight. Adequate sized screen, FULL keyboard. 3GB RAM (great for graphics work and internet). Was in the internet within 2 minutes of powering it on (after entering my information). Crisp LCD display, floating keyboard keys makes it easy to...

The only issue I have with it is the fact that it only has one speaker. It may take a second or two for the system to "switch" to stereo mode when you plug in headphones; if that doesn't sound too bad, it's the fact that sometimes the change wont occur...

Acer Aspire 5736 (Refurb)


Does what it should do, not superfast but efficient

an odd keyboard layout - takes getting used to if you touch type. Programmed to have annoying reminders from McAffee every two minutes pop up - I am subscribed to Norton so I cancelled the McAffee subscription.
