Amazing laptop, the best.

Advantageshigh ram, high hard drive, good camera, amazing processor, good battery life

Disadvantagesbluetooth button does not work as no bluetooth is installed.

"I was given this laptop as a present on my birthday and fell in love with it from the first day. Firstly the 15.6 inch wide screen really makes watching videos and playing games much better and more entertaining. I really enjoy using this laptop because of the shape of the screen and the resolution it gives. Next the AMD athlon 2.0 GHz processor is extremely fast, the laptop will turn on fully from a complete shut down in a matter of seconds which ..." Read review

Brillant laptop

AdvantagesGood spec for the price

Disadvantagesbattery life bit on the short side

"Took me a while to finally settling on a laptop. Was looking at laptops that cost more than this laptop and they didn't have what this laptop has to offer. Came with windows 7 and find that the two work well together. Speed and memory are ample for a normal laptop and are capable of handling some of the more less powerful games in the market (works well with command and conquer generals on high spec). I will test it on more powerful games but I believe ..." Read review

DisadvantagesSlow, no bluetooth, no firewaire, no express card port.

"Mine is with windows 7, 4GB RAM. It is very very slow to start or load anything which is really annoying. It takes minutes to start from switching on. Grrrrrr!! There is no bluetooth although it has a button for it., essential in this day and age for connecting to mobile phones or bluetooth printers. There is no firewire or express card port so you cannot link camcorder to it, although it does take other cards. It is light and very portable but feels ..." Read review

Amazing little trooper

Advantagessimple to use, fast, lots of features

Disadvantagesnot full access to all games, not a huge amount of memory

"I think that acer has really impressed me this time. This full sized laptop is perfect for my needs and life style. It is lightweight, compact, and very speedy. It loads fast and shuts down quickly. Has a very good amount of memory, the only issue i had was not being able to have sims on my laptop due to not enough ram, but other then that it allows me to do basicly everything. When i purchased this laptop i did not buy any extra add-on's or speed ..." Read review

Acer Aspire 5542 Oh dear

AdvantagesGreat graphics, fast for browsing the net

DisadvantagesBattery life is useless

"Good laptop all in all , fantastic graphics though and extra fast for browsing, but, the battery life is hopeless, 1 to 1 and a half hours use after 24 hours of charging. Very disappointed that we won't be able to use it on long journeys. Also no manual, which is ok for people who know computers well and how to set them up. So we struggled a little on the main set up. It's the first time ever we have had a product that hasn't come with an ..." Read review

Acer Aspire 5542, Great!

AdvantagesGreat Graphics, Fast, Adaptive, Smooth, Brilliant.

DisadvantagesKeyboard layout..Not a biggy (you get used to it)

"I recieved this laptop today after buying it refurbished for 389.99. The spec is very good and the laptop itself is excellent for the price, Windows 7 runs beautifully, very fast around the menus and the graphics are brilliant!. Very fast for internet browsing and good for gaming also, for basic things (MSN, Facebook, Games)..In my opinion it is probably the best laptop, with the best spec in the price bracket, Great Speakers, good userbility and ..."

Acer Aspire 5542

AdvantagesFast Processor speed, Large Memory 640GB, Good sound and picture quality.

DisadvantagesCould be more portable, also the touch pad can be temperamental at times.

"In my opinion the Acer Aspire 5542 is excellent value for money, The screen is sharp, the sound quality is excellent for laptop top speakers and i personally have had no technical problems at all with this model. With 640GB of internal hard drive space it also allows for the storage of a vast number of files and with its 4GB of RAM it is performs task very quickly. I think therefore that this is one of the best value laptops on the market today and ..." Read review

Acer Aspire Laptop.


DisadvantagesComes with Window 8 pre-installed.

" I brought this laptop back in August. This was my first laptop as previously I have always used a desktop. The Laptop is lightweight and when you get your head around windows eight it is fairly straightforward to use. Personally I'm not fan of windows eight and would have preferred an earlier windows programme. The lap top is preloaded with numerous programmes for me lots of which I would never use. Instead it would have been great to have something ..." Read review
