Acer Aspire 7520-5115 Review


A value-priced 17-inch notebook that delivers just the basics.

Bright screen with good viewing angles, Excellent wireless performance, Good features for the price

Polarizing, dated design, Subpar performance scores, Jumpy cursor, Poor webcam

Acer Aspire 7520-5115 Laptop Review and Ratings


For users who don't demand high-end performance and cutting-edge multimedia, the big, desktop-friendly Acer Aspire 7520-5115 offers considerable bang for the buck.

Low price ; Big, beautiful screen ; Discrete graphics card ; Built-in Webcam ; DVI and FireWire ports

Disappointing performance ; Scroll strip not marked on touch pad ; Some users might prefer HDMI port to DVI ; Weak Webcam software ; No configuration options

Acer Aspire 7520-6A1G08Mi review


Another Acer laptop with plenty of great features at a jaw-dropping price

Excellent screen ; Decent performer for everyday tasks ; Plentiful connections

Keyboard could be more robust ; Quite heavy

A large laptop that’s ideal as a budget desktop replacement

Regardless of chinese tradition, we're thinking of declaring 2008 the Year of the Affordable 17 Inch Laptop. They're so plentiful at the moment that after accepting two to represent their breed in our group test of affordable portables, we still had...

Bigger screen, smaller price. Bring it! A decent general use laptop, and great value. Great price, but it's rather underpowered for Vista applications.

Wow" nice picture


Great laptop for the money. Gave it as a present to girlfriend. Lets say i had a good night. The picture is crystal clear. Speed is pretty good with only 2 gig of ram. 4 USB ports is a plus

Trying to explain wireless to girlfriend. One more gig of ram

Runs hot. Touch pad is a little sensitive. You need to go into the Control Panel - Mouse Properties - Tapping - and click "Tap off when typing" This helps a lot. Some software included is not needed. Remove Norton right away...Don't install the free...

Despite the cons, this laptop can't be beat for the price. It has great specs, and while a similarly price HP laptop might have snazzier features (like remote control), this laptop has a dedicated video card, which means better overall performance....

Great laptop, esp for the price

Vista (if this were intended for gaming, I'd replace with XP), and the keyboard, while being *almost* full-size, isn't. You have to relearn the key placement to use keys that you would normally find above the arrow keys (home, pg dn, pg up, etc) ; If...
