Not for Skype users

 

If you are a SKYPE user, definitely Stay Away. The microphone is horrible. Google acer 7741G and Microphone problems and "it shows up like a bad rash, all over the place". Otherwise, it's ok.

The Acer Aspire is an excellent choice for ? you need

 

Overall for me is what I need for all my duties that are continous. during maybe 10-12 hours a day.

Obviously I went imediately for the 8GB Upgrade, so the flow of every application plus the I5- dual Core is incredible. The flexibility it gives you its magnificent. While running the Win 8 , although is just a developer version, you could see there's an

Very few, sometimes the TFT display its a little fussy on son characters. but it is minimal. The heat dispersion is could be better. The battery life I understand is not of the best, but I will look for a better replacement

Works fine for me!

 

I would like a bit more speed and have had some "low memory" problems, which I don't understand. But it's reliable, has enough external ports to increase basic functionality and the built-in video/microphone means I can quit wearing earphones! I will...

I actually LIKE the keyboard over my HP Pavilion. It's responsive for a dual core, having a 1gb video card is a definite plus for me as I do graphics work. I had a 17" screen before and like this one! Colors are bright with the backlit LED

Junk software pre-loaded. WHY do all manufacturers do this

a great computer

 

I did have to return the first one I received from new egg because it did not keep the date and time. But New Egg was very easy to deal with and sent me a replacement very quickly. Even with this, I still have to give the computer 5 stars. I understand...

Plenty powerful for doing most things I want to do. I can edit video, music, play emulators, Skype, etc. It appears to be fairly sturdy and has a nice simple look. Also, not a lot of bloat ware cluttering the desktop

The only real con I can think of is the keys on the keyboard are very easy to pop off. It only happened once accidentally, but it was easy to put back on. and the other thing would be the beep it makes when you plug it in - kinda loud and unpleasant....

Awesome laptop, bad power brick.

 

All in all this laptop is awesome. You couldn't go wrong for a mid range, large sized laptop like this one. Buyer beware though, I'm not the only one with power issues in the reviews. and I've read a few reports of bad hard drives (easy fix, though I...

this laptop is awesome for the price range. Dedicated graphics card, huge screen resolution, and a very able cpu. It keeps up with my needs and games just fine. I usually have photoshop running, a dozen or so tabs in Chrome, and a game at times. It...

the trackpad stinks, Horribly so. You really do feel like you've suddenly caught a bad case of the twitches when you use it. I've been using an external notebook mouse since I bought it. I can't put up with the trackpad ; the power brick is a dud. Many...

Jury is OUT

 

I researched this laptop for some time mainly based off user feed back here and felt I'd made the right choice. Although the issue has been escalated to a rep in the states the results are the same, perhaps worse. I feel at a minimum the lap top...

Purchased in July, put into used in September. Since actually running this laptop everything seemed fine until I hooked up an external monitor. Randomly both screens turn off and then come back on after a few seconds ; The lap top has been sent back to...

Very good for the money!!!

 

Overall its a great laptop and the major reason of 5 eggs is the poor viewing angle on the monitor. You can seriously have the monitor centered and be perfectly fine in the middle and still be a little off at the edges. Not noticeable all the time but...

display is crisp ; there isn't much glare on display ; keyboard feels and works great ; plenty of power to run everything from word processing and internet surfing to some gaming and adobe cs4 (For recreational use only. not suited for large projects.)...

monitor has terrible view angle ; battery life is very poor when using anything using any processing power or graphics. less than an hour ; bloatware (doesn't take long to remove) ; the computer doesn't come with stock discs. either buy dvd's with it...

Computer is great. Service was horrible.

 

Not only did I get rush processing which shouldn't take 3 DAYS out of the 1-2 business days to process and ship my order; (What a joke), but the UPS 2nd day air, which USUALLY means that it'll get to you on the SECOND DAY, is scheduled to get here 6...

Computer is great, fast, plays all the games I have on med+ settings with 60+ fps ; Keyboard feels nice ; Nice large screen. (Makes the battery life suffer a little bit but that's to be expected.)

Can't really think of any right now ; Read in other thought for why it's a 3 egg rating
