I knew it was time to get a new laptop, but I was hesitant to spend a lot of cash on a new one. My Dell Inspiron was okay, but outdated. It was also really heavy. I found the Acer Aspire at Office Max, and it had everything that the Dell I was interested in had, and it was four hundred dollars cheaper!
I bought the Acer Aspire in April 2008, after six weeks of daily use, I must say I am impressed. I love the dvd burner, wireless capabilities and how lightweight the laptop is. The LCD crystalbright screen is great, and the web cam is great for keeping intouch with friends and family.
For the price, this laptop cannot be beat! I would recommend the Acer Aspire for students and first time laptop owners. As well as people who are looking for a simple laptop.
