Acer Aspire AS5253-BZ661

 

The Acer AS5253-BZ661 desktop replacement laptop is a compelling play on price and battery life, using a netbook-based AMD Fusion APU to lead the charge.

Priced like a netbook. Big screen is a plus. Full size keyboard included an adjacent numeric keypad. HDMI port included. Excellent battery life for the price.

Slow-poke in speed tests. Plain design.

Review Acer Aspire 5253 (AMD Fusion) Notebook

 

Energy Saver. AMD Fusion enters the aggressively priced 400 Euro

Robust compact case; Low system noise at all times; Hardly any heat dissipation; Low power consumption; Short battery charge time; Very good battery run times

Poor application performance; Weak gaming performance; Interface locations; Keyboard layout; Very reflective display; Bad mono sound quality

Small multimedia machines with office ambitions: HP ProBook 4720s: matte 17 inch; Asus A52JU: small HD 6370 graphics; Lenovo B560: Optimal for 399 Euros.

Speakers

 

Forgot to include in my last review

Internal Speakers Are Horrible! Horrible sound quality. Horrible volume control. Volume doesn't go loader than a faint whisper. Not good for watching movies, listening to music, or playing video games (audio)

Awesome Deal

 

Labtop is not that bad, really light weight, awesome spec's for the price i got it for, decent hard drive, great battery life all in all a good deal

Filled with bloatware causing slow proformace. this labtob can definatly go without the OEM bloatwere that comes preinstalled. it is lagging right out the box. best bet is to reformat right out the box with a retail copy

Bargain!

 

I added 2GB RAM and a 60GB SSD. A capable laptop for <$500 total

None, for the price

C-50 Jeckle or Hyde???

 

Overall I am completely ticked off at AMD/ATI for even bringing this CPU to a notebook.At 1.0Ghz even as a dual core it just can hang in the notebook class of CPUs.In a phone,handheld,or tablet this CPU would be a monster but not for an everyday...

Graphics are on par for what their good at.This is definitely not a notebook computer and should be classified as a net book.HD streaming video and webpages look out of this world.Movies,DVDs,Java Script,Flash Player all play at excellent quality.Divx...

Where do I begin..lol First off the CPU is absolutely a bust when it comes to any type of computation.I have never ever in my life seen so much clocking on a processor to do simple tasks.Downloading Windows updates and installing them took over 6...

Excellent value

 

This was exactly what I was looking for. I needed HDMI to connect to my big screen and this has it. Laptop is lighter than the other bricks I have owned and still use at work. I like that, for sure. So far, everything is great

None really, except the extra cost for the HDMI port over other models I checked

TERRIFIC laptop

 

For the price, this is a tremendous deal. I would take this over an eee pc any day! The cpu power is more than enough to run multiple simple tasks. This is much more grunt than I have seen from Atom processors.

Great keyboard ; Great Screen ; actually a nice processor! AMD Fusion has a big future in my book ; Respectable build quality! No real flex or squeaks ; AWESOME Price

USB 3.0 should be on these. 3.0 is available on the itx motherboards ; Plastic will not leave prints, but feels a bit cheap around the edges ; Lots of unnecessary software pre-installed ; I can image the keyboard getting crud stuck under the keys. They...

excellent

 

Nice cheap laptop. Runs cool and quiet. Bought it for web use, skype and watching netflix - all which this laptop does fine. Acer and M$ crapware was removed in 30 minutes

No Windows disk (which is sadly typical)
