Review Acer Aspire V3-551G-10468G50Makk Notebook

 

Strong Multimedia All-rounder. Less than 600 Euro (~$770), but equipped with a quad-core CPU and dual graphics. That sounds like a cheap gaming-ready multimedia notebook. Is that what Acer is offering in the Aspire V3-551G-1048G50Makk? We will find out...

Great buy

 

This was an amazing computer. I bought it in 2013 and it was about $500. I did everything with this computer and i never, i repeat, never had a problem with it. I have thousands of songs on it, it handles all web browsing excellent, youtube at...

-Quad core A10 with the 2 cards runs really smooth -6gb Ram for extra oomph -750gb HDD had plenty of space for my music and games. Very solid computer.

Honestly not much, but my cooling system did finally get me after years of gaming and streaming.

Great computer for the price!

 

For $550 (list was $700), this was a steal. Want better, pay twice as much. I may look at an Acer for the next laptop. This thing still has years of life left in it.

Great gaming computer that I purchased in 2013. I still use it, and will probably hand it down to my son this year. Handles games fine, can't handle max settings generally, but it does quite well. If you game with a laptop, get a gaming cooling fan...

No SSD! I still don't have one, no clue why I haven't upgraded. The HDD is the bottle neck of the system.

Great memory

After less than 2 years of owning this computer I had to send it back because it was overheating. They called me 2 weeks later and said they were sending it back and wouldn't open it because it had a "scratch on the top". I took pictures of the...

I write. I write all day long. I use a mechanical keyboard on my desktop but when I'm not at home I have to use this thing. After staying stuck on the 2nd paragraph for about 15 minutes, I eventually got so mad that I punched the computer and broke it...

Cheap

The keyboard has keys that stick up and when you press them it sounds like they're cracking underneath. After about 6 months I had problems typing. For example, instead of typing out ; The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog ; It will type "Thequ...
