Acer Laptop Aspire AS7560-7183 AMD A6-Series A6-3420M (1.5 GHz) 4 GB Memory 750 GB HDD 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Beautiful HD Display, Runs Quiet (Fan noticeable only when doing heavy computing), Multi-touch Touchpad is Useful, HDMI output come in handy. Nicely Designed.

Cons: Ports are place in odd places (Explained Below), Keyboard is nice/large but takes time getting use to. Processor feels a bit sluggish. No Volume Rocker/Wheel (Only Function Key option). Installing a 2nd Hard-Drive is no easy Task.

Other Thoughts: Overall its a Great Laptop for the Price. Can't beat a 17.3" Screen for under $400.

I don't understand Acers reason for placing a Large Plastic Grid/Barrier in the 2nd Hard-Drive Slot (Will require the use of a Dremel to cut away the plastic to install 2nd Hard-Drive.)

Ports are in a horrible place, Right side has (in order) Power connector, Ethernet Port and 2 USB Ports. Sandwiched between the ports is your DVD Drive. Which if you have the Power cord plugged in, Ethernet Cable, And Both USB Ports being used, then getting to your DVD Drive becomes a task. Placing the USB (Or Power) on the left, where the "Anti-Theft Lock" (Kensington Security Slot) is, would have made more sense. And a K-Slot is pretty much useless on a Laptop this size, since you probably will not be carrying it around much.

The Keyboard is nice, but its completely flat. If you are like me, and like the indented keys, and are use to the 2 Raised dots on your "Home Keys (Where your index fingers rest), then it will take time to get use to the keyboard. I still make typos, and I've been typing 70+ words a min for 10 yrs.

The Touchpad is Nice. It offers Multitouch features. Scrolling with two fingers, swipe to go back/forward, etc. I ordered two of these laptops, oddly though, each had Different Touchpad Software installed. One had Synaptics, and the other had ELAN. If you get one with Synaptics, I suggest installing ELAN as I prefer the more feature ELAN offers. (example: Auto Disable Touchpad when External Mouse is Connected)

The Quad-Core Processor feels more like a Duo-Core processor unless you are doing heavy computing. When you engage in activities like Graphic/Video Edit, Gaming, etc you will then notice the laptop take full advantage of the 4 Cores.

Battery Life is Decent. If you reduce Screen Brightness, Close out any unneeded task that are running, and/or disable Windows 7 Aero (Glass Effect) you will get some more battery life, but not much.

In the End, with all the Cons (me being nit-picky) I would not go back on my purchase. Its a great laptop, and I'm able to look past the flaws and enjoy the Large number for "Pros" it has.
