Can't find this on Acer website

 

Price and specs are good

This model cannot even be found anywhere on Acer websites. Somewhat alarming that there is no sales or support information to be found about this unit. BUYER BEWARE

update previous review

 

This is a UEFI BIOS with a very simple interface. We had to update our BIOS (from Acer) to get backwards compatibility for legacy BIOS. Like all modern Windows products (UEFI), there is no sticker with a Windows 8 product key on it. The Windows product...

decent laptop for my wife - surfing web, email, and office productivity, It is quiet. The air flow system seems well designed - not much heat or fan noise ; BUT know what you are getting. NO OPTICAL drive, limited UEFI BIOS

The second RAM slot is integrated into the PCB, but there is no bracket, so you can't install a second RAM module. I spoke to Acer support about this and basically they said 'tough luck' - buy an 8 gig single RAM module. NOT satisfactory

Quad core is slow

 

I guess that you get what you pay for in computer parts, so if you are willing to buy an external dvd drive too, then I still think this is worth it for the price and relatively slow speed.

Great price for a quad core

NO DVD drive, which I did not notice in the description, so my fault. But I verified that this. machine is a quad core, but I have an 1.7gh i5 that runs faster, which is a dual core

Good laptop for the price

 

It's a very good laptop for the price and I'm sure that with a little bit of care, it will last a few years.

I got this for my brother because his old Gateway (A three year old Intel i3) was falling apart. The main reason I chose this one is because of the quad-core Pentium. So far it seems to be doing very well. It performs as well as if not better than the...

There are only three problems I have with this laptop. The first is the way the monitor is attached to the laptop. It looks like it's designed to fail just as it did on the old Gateway. The second is how flimsy it is. I know this is how they make it...

Acer Aspire E1-510 NX.MGREK.001

 

My first foray with Windows 8(.1) takes a bit of getting used to but after it's up to date with all the updates it seems to be okay and I'm getting into it now.

A few Windows foyballs but no problems with the machine itself.
