Acer Laptop Aspire AMD Phenom II Quad-Core N970 (2.2GHz) 4GB Memory 640GB HDD ATI Radeon HD 4250 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit AS5552-7803
Acer Laptop Aspire AMD Phenom II Quad-Core N970 (2.2GHz) 4GB Memory 640GB HDD ATI Radeon HD 4250 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit AS5552-7803

Pros: My last Acer was dual core. The only minor problem was the sound and heat. Sound was just low and it seemed hot but never locked up or shut down due to heat. This machine has better sound and less heat considering it is quad core.

Cons: No cons at this point. Installed free software removes very easily.

Overall Review: My last 3 laptops along with my girlfriends last 2 were all Acre. All were very good. My last was the dual core. I wanted this one but only had 1 review at the time. Other sites had many more reviews on this model and they were very positive.

Pros: Price was good, if it worked.

Cons: Never could get it to work. Thought about RMA but add in shipping and it's just not worth the return.

Oh Yeah!

Pros: Was having trouble with the comcast cable router connecting more than 4 wireless devices. Comcast said they do have problems around the 5 device connections. I asked some questions here and got the right answers. I ordered this and totally expanded my device connections. I'm at 8 wireless devices and still no problems.

Cons: None

Pros: Product does what it is supposed to do.

Cons: Newegg shipping used to be next day for me. Even with free shipping. Free shipping now appears to be give it to the Post Office. It took me 15 days to get this.

Overall Review: Why?

Pros: Well, I have ordered 5 so far between family, friends, and myself. All I can say is that if you are looking for a tablet, look no farther. Battery life = excellent, memory 32GB w/ a slot for another 32GB, this price = wow. Software is constantly getting better, not that there was anything wrong in the first place. Generous supply of Apps. Connects with my Android phone hot spot perfectly.

Cons: The one problem I see with it is that it will not see my flash drives. It can be rooted for that to work but I don't think I should have to do that.
