4 out of 5 eggsStill going good

Pros: Bought this in 2011 and it's still going well. It has faired nearly as well as a previous Compaq, at a quarter the price. Was fast for a long time, then it started to bog down...plenty of space on the HDD and 4GB ram and not being a power user, I copped it off the the typical bog of Windows. It seems that no matter what, Windows (whatever version) will just about slow to a crawl after about 3 years use. Best answer is to do a clean install. the Alt+F10 of the Acer here started the eRecovery partition and reinstalled EVERYTHING back to factory state, without much need for input from me. Meaning, it was very automated and had the computer up and running in less than 30 minutes, much better than doing a manual OS install, though there is some bloatware.

CPU fan is going most of the time, but it's to be expected with a laptop.

Cons: I can't pinpoint if it's an Acer thing or Windows 7 issue, but I had some serious slowdowns in usability. Internet speed seemed forever delayed. It was almost like the ping was very slow, but other devices and computers had no such slowdown. I'm somewhat computer savvy and tried fixing the issue many times (in addition to forever running HDD) and never got to the bottom of things.

Other Thoughts: Well worth the $. Would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggs1st & Best Laptop I Ever Owned

Pros: Love this laptop!!! Use it most every day. I fell in love with it from the moment I saw the specs!!! It has my favorite AMD triple-core processor-Phenom II-in it; a 500gig hard drive, 4 gig of RAM, a webcam, a media card reader, and a CD/DVD drive/burner, and WIFI. What more could a girl want??? I even caught this laptop on sale. So, I am still very pleased!!! My laptp got here very quickly, but that is something I expect from NewEgg.

Cons: Hmmm.... What would I change??? I would put the media card reader on the side or the back and I would add at least 3 more USB ports. While the media card reader is a minor issue, NOT having enough USB ports is a real pain in the rump!!! Other than that the ONLY thing that I can think of that I might want is a HDMI port, and since I had no idea that I would even consider one of those when I bought this, as they say, hind sight is 20/20.

Other Thoughts: I would certainly rather have had Windows XP Pro instead of Windows 7!!! And I wish I had known that you do NOT get full programs, and that you have to pay extra to actually use the programs tha they tell you come with the computer, but that isn't NewEgg fault!!! They don't make the rules!!!

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It was a nice price and the laptop has worked well except for one thing.

Cons: HEAT.

This laptop overheats a lot. Any activity more taxing that browsing will overheat this sucker.

I have tried 3 different cooling pads with no luck.

This is basically a netbook

Other Thoughts: I have read that Acer has had a problem with some panels being cut out. That might be what is causing the overheating.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat machine

Pros: Very inexpensive but powerful enough for every day use/work.

Cons: No bluetooth? is that really a con?

Other Thoughts: The machine has plenty of horsepower with a 3 core proc and 4 gigs of RAM is more than enough. The 500GB hard drive should hold anyone with less then 1,000,000 songs over.

4 out of 5 eggsPowerful for a low price

Pros: Fast processor
Decent graphics
integrated keypad
Quiet fan
not too much bloatware
Newegg customer service was excellent

Cons: only 5400rpm hdd*
USB only 2.0 and awkward positions (near the front)
Bit of a dust magnet around screen bezel
runs warm

* So far, the 5400rpm drive does not seem "slow". On my previous machine, I upgraded to 7200rpm, but it doesn't feel so necessary on this machine. My own benchmark is mostly how long it takes to boot with windows and starting programs.

Other Thoughts: What a deal @ $399 w/free 3-day shipping. First unit had a bad fan right out of the box, made a loud clicking noise the moment I first pressed the power button and whenever the fan came on after that. Newegg CS was awesome...they shipped me a new one out right away while I kept the old one so I had a machine to use until the new one arrived. New one is perfect, no fan issue. Newegg paid for all the shipping...and when I called questioning the exact expiration of the returning 7-day shipping label they emailed me a new one. They anticipated my needs and made the whole experience easy!

As a note of comparison, this is replacement for a 2004 Compaq Presario w/1.6ghz pentium M 1gb xp home 7200rpm

5 out of 5 eggsNICE

Pros: 1.Phenom II x3
2.4GB Ram
3. Only Paid 299.00 free shipping
4.Integreated graphics are good enough for slot of games , even like l4d, and bff2.

Cons: HEAT!!!!

Other Thoughts: I hate having systems run hot, im sure everyone here knows that the number one killer of laptops or any system in general is HEAT.
This run a little high for my conford, ive use compresed air to make sure nothing was blocking the cpu cooler and droped about 10c, but still running hot for my taste.
Idle is about 60c, and under full load it has been up to 90c, according to CPU Temp, and ive never had a problem with this program. I do plan to open it up and change the cpu paste and see if theres anything else going on there...DONT GET ME WRONG, THIS LAPTOP IS AWESOME!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful

Pros: Great size, beautiful colors, doesnt get too hot, overall very great laptop for checking emails, surfing the web ect. Comes with your basic word and excel!

Cons: Only having one speaker?? And maybe the touchpad is a little bit touchy, but i plan on using a USB mouse with it no major cons though!

Other Thoughts: This is my first laptop purchase and i am very very happy i bought this one. Not super computer savvy but I would recommend if you are just using it for little stuff. Havent used it for movies yet, but just watching things on YouTube, the quality is great. I also love checking out recipes while im in the kitchen for cooking and baking, WONDERFUL!!

5 out of 5 eggsAn Awesome Computer !!

Pros: Fast.. Not loaded down with a lot of "Junk-Ware". Excellent connectivity. Easy to use. Fast updates. Everything you need is right here.

Cons: Touch pad is a little scetchy, But i use an external mouse, so it's not really an issue, but would like to see an update or something to correct this issue.

Other Thoughts: I have been very pleased with this purchase, and with all these features at $399.00 plus free shipping, I wish I had bought two of them. As always, Newegg shipping is lightning fast.

4 out of 5 eggsNice little computer

Pros: Nice little computer for the price. This is my first laptop so I'm still getting to know it. I like that it's light weight. Battery holds its charge longer than I expected (of course I know little about computers).

Cons: A lot of "stuff" preloaded I could live without.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'd say it's a good buy. Newegg is fast! My first purchase from them but not my last!
