Summary Some background: I am a 25 computer geek. I have been online for 16 years building websites and selling on eBay for 10 years. I have had countless desktop machines. I have built, programmed, fixed, upgraded, tutored, and spent countless hours on computers. This is my 3rd laptop after an IBM Thinkpad and a Dell Vostro. I am very happy that this has not slowed down like others, even desktops. I purchased this one looking for the bigger keyboard with the number pad and the BIG screen. This computer was chosen after hours of research for it's features with the low price tag. I quickly put on BitDefender, Malwarebytes, & Uniblue Registry Booster & Speed Up My PC. This has helped tremendously to keep the speed it had when it was first out of the box. I always take the professional ratings (cnet & PCmag) and equally the user rankings to select my computers. Gone are the days I build and repair/upgrade my own machines. I have had this one 8 months and love it the same as I did when I took it out of the box.
Pros It was cheap
Cons Needs a new motherboard after less than 18 month
Summary Not pleased...won't buy an Acer again
"great laptop"on by fonegene
Pros goood size , good price , affordable
Cons idk what bad about
Pros Not the power of a desktop by any means. But I don't mind placing it on my coffee table watching the game, or TV, as long as my girlfriend has her Compaq CQ-60 to roam the house. For $500 you can't beat it.
Cons Like this review stated the keys seem a little wobbly. When I bought mine at Staples the display model had a key missing. The saleswoman said "Hey you get what you pay for"
Summary My Aspire 7740-5691 has the Intel Core i3. I have the computer on all the time and no problems. I do like the option to turn the touchpad on and off when using a mouse. I would definitely buy another one for a second or backup.
Pros I use my almost every day. It is great for internet, email, storage of my photos and to take along on vacation. The WIFI works very well and the DVD play work great. Just remember this not a laptop for business. It is for personal use
Cons Need longer battery life. I need to buy the longer life battery. Hard to watch a movie on a long flight and no charging station on the plane. I rate this laptop a 4.5 stars because you can alway inprove
