Top Customer Reviews
The Acer starts up like a rocket. I replaced the MacAfee antivirus with Microsoft's Security Essentials and will in time add Glary Utilities free system maintenance tool which I have for peace of mind on my Toshiba 15 inch laptop which I use mostly anyway. The reviews on Amazon.com have a lot of very helpful advice re getting the best out of the 756 and helped me decide it was a good buy. I'm not too bothered about battery life which has been criticised elsewhere.
I do wish a paper generic user guide had been included rather than being on-line. My Toshiba came with a paper one and I find it so much easier to use.Yes, I could print it out, but I suspect the unit cost of Acer providing one in the box is a lot less than my printing cost. A minor gripe though! The quickstart paper guide included was fine.
All that aside, I'm reasonably happy with the look, feel,and performance of my new machine.
anyway after over a year of daily use the Acer has been simply great, the battery and netbook performance has been better than expected.
My son is a techie sort and he was a little unsure at the time of buying, he wanted better, faster etc. but this is what he got and he has been and still is total happy with it. Defiantly one of my better purchases.
Not being technical minded I use it for the internet, spreadsheets and word documents however it is miles better than my old laptop which was very cumbersome to use.
Very happy with purchase and price
The specification is not,at the time of this posting, detailed on the Acer.co.uk website
However, on the Acer.com site there are two flavors, one with a Celeron processor and a dearer one with a Pentium processor. It seams we do not have a choice and have to go with the Pentium.
Apparently the Celeron is faster and no one so far has identified an advantage of having the Pentium.
Anyway I do not need to review this model as you will find the most amazing review and details in this thread. - thanks to MWebb for helping me decide to buy this laptop
minus 1 star for not having details on Acer.co.uk and the confusion on the two processors available.
minus 1 star for disappointing battery life (< 4 hours) and poor track pad quality.
All I can add to to above link is make sure you are aware of how small this screen is and whether it is suitable for your eyes and needs.
