My mum needed a new PC so she trusted me to buy this laptop on her behalf. I chose it mainly because it has Vista Premium (rather than Vista Basic) and comes with 2 Gb of RAM installed, which seems to be the minimum according to advice I have been given. The monitor is a standard 15.4" widescreen but is clear and bright. The pre-loaded software includes a DVD editing suite so you don't need to pay for something else. The hard disk is a conservative 80 Gb but that should be fine for most standard users. Overall it suits my mum's requirements very well indeed and I am really impressed with it too.

Had this laptop for 2 days, bought it for my daughter to take to Uni' & already arranged to have it sent back to Amazon because of serious Boot up problems.

Note another Amazon reviewer has had similar issues with this Laptop.

Repeated attempts to turn on fail, and when occasionally it did boot up the screen would suddenly go black and machine will freeze, it will only respond to the "OFF" button at this point! Tried disabling quick start but that didn't help, haven't been able boot into safe mode or BIOS to help resolve. Tried it with the battery in and out, still nothing, and am sick of trying now.

Was also concerned about unpleasant noises emitting from the laptop, sounding like something is seriously struggling to get it together.
I have since read on the Internet that the bios for some Acer machines may be to blame for problems such as this, depending on the motherboard installed. But I can't be bothered to FIX a brand new machine so it has to go, I await my refund :(

I was looking for a cheap but reasonable laptop that i could install Linux on. Being a regular Amazon shopper i came across this and was instantly impressed with what you got for the price.
The dual core Pentium processor is in fact a re badged Core 2 chip, so is far from a slouch! Lots of memory and a reasonable sized Hard drive. I wasn't looking for a gaming laptop so was happy with the integrated Intel Graphics.
Having completely removed Vista, i then installed Ubuntu Linux which was very straight forward. Everything except my Wireless network card worked but after a quick look around the internet i found a guide and driver which I used to get that working.
Overall this laptop was never going to win a performance crown, nor a beauty pageant. But you cant fault what you are getting for your money.

This laptop has the absolute basics required to run adequately. Some of it's bad points are: 1) the touchpad mouse sometimes has a mind of its own and 2) the build quality isn't great, making the laptop look less sophisticated, 3) the laptop does not come with 80 GB of FREE memory, it's actually less than that as ACER programs are taking up about 10-20 GB.

However, the pros far outweigh the cons. It has the 2 GB of RAM required for Vista to run comfortably, and the available memory is more than enough (unless you are a serious downloader). To gain a little more memory and speed, just uninstall the useless software on the laptop. For the price, this laptop is a bargain, especially for students and the average homeuser.

My wife, who is ,shall we say, a very senior citizen, (as am I, but have worked with computers before my retirement), was never interested in computers until she saw our daughter-in-law happily using an Acer Aspire on line, chatting to other people on 'Face Book'. This kindled a spark of enthusiasm and so,when we returned from our visit to them, I ordered one from you. It arrived in good order and A1 condition and, as soon as I could get around to instructing her in its use, (never having used a laptop myself but being a staunch PC fan and owner), she was smitten by its ease of use and possibilites. The machine itself is fantastic, even moreso at £100 off, and I now have a 'convert' to all things Computer! Thank you for that and I can recommend anyone who has not owned a laptop before and does not wish to spend out too much, to buy this one, you will not be disappointed!

I use this laptop for work and find that it does everything and more that i need. The only negative that I can think off is the battery life. This is not a problem for me as I tend to run the laptop from the mains power. i would supsect that the laptop would last 1hr 30mins from the battery if I were doing basic tasks i.e. word processing.

if you want a laptop to play games and run high powered programmes then you would need something more powerful but for £299 I think this is a real good buy - especially considering some of the laptops that I viewed in curry's, comet and PC world that were more expensive.

If you asked me if i'd buy this laptop again then i'd say definately yes.
