Acer Laptops Are they any good? I am thinking of getting one but have heard a few bad reviews.

I personally think they are crap not known for longevity.

I paid $540 for mine...I've had it 6 months or so....not had any problems with it....Don't expect it to last forever...then again my $1400 one was a pain in the butt (NEC)

soodanim, Dec 22, 3:43am link is way too long for TM and im too lazy to cut and paste and it's broken for linkification too.

Ifind most of my income for laptop repairs come from ACERs so I'm not complaining lol.

Better value for your money than HP. I've been using Aspire 5012 for 4 years now without problems. Just as good than any other major brand.

Travelmate Had one for five years and it was just OK. Since having it repaired, it has been rat-"droppings". Service peopl claim age, I am less sure.

lostdude, Dec 22, 5:33am
Soif it's rat-"droppings" now, what was it BEFORE the repair?

dunedin_ree, Dec 22, 6:13am
Suspect the OP has gone possibly to ask the same question in General, which is what they did last time they asked questions about laptops. For those playing at home, first it was Apple laptops, then Apple modems, and now it's Acer. Now back to our scheduled programme ;)

Got to be better than my old Dell p4 now that was a big pain in the wallet.. Paid $3000 for it and didnt even last four years.. CD Drive had to be replaced.. the battery twice.. the power supply cord twice.. it overheated and last it clapped out and ate the bloody hard drive for smoko..!!! in the bin and bought a cheap as Acer.. If it lasts four years with a bit of tlc then all good and havent lost much money.. had it a year and all good and even the battery is still ok.. only other option would have been a Toshiba but it was another $400 !! so the scot in my stayed with the acer.. 3gig ram ..and it is all good for now.. see ya L

Acer Notebook I have had my Acer for 4 years and have had no problems with it at all unlike my other notebook computer. I would highly recommend the Acer Brand.

BEWARE If it has a cashback offer make sure you use registered post because they screwed me outta mine "we ddnt recieve it"

Acer = %$#@# Works well for some & crap for others. Considering teh volume sold, they have a fairly well recorded failier rate.

mrfxit, Dec 24, 3:43am
Oh & a reputation From the suppliers/manufactures of NOT wanting or knowing how to fix them or even refund.

cessna3, Dec 24, 3:43am
I got a Acer extensa from Dick Smiths 3 mths ago It was the only brand there that had WinXP on it, Good for work because my companies software doesn't work on vista.

joy22, Dec 24, 5:44am
Cash Back I got my 149.00 cash back on my Acer within 6wks - very happy with my lap top.

Slowing down and the wireless card died off-shore at a hugely inconvenient time. Rebuilding from that was what killed the speed of the beast.

So what would be a good one to get for my daughter heading to Uni???
