  • I don't recommend this laptop
    Reviewed by Acer_Gamble - January 6, 2022

    - Right out of the box, I have been having issues with the touchpad. It behaves erratically and unpredictably. Single tapping issues; sometimes you have to tap twice for a single tap effect. Cursor disappears sporadically and for no reason. - The laptop has the look and feel of a product that hasn't been well tested or integrated. - The Acer phone support simply sucks. Be prepared for a long wait and to be disconnected after waiting 20min or 30 min. - What other issues I am going to find, I am not sure. It's been less than a week since I got the laptop. I will be returning this laptop and won't buy an Acer product again.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

    Acer Aspire 5 15.6" Laptop - Silver (Intel Core i3-10110U/256GB SSD/8GB RAM/Windows 10) Bought in November 2019. I use it daily. Great battery life, good screen, nice and light and thus far problem free. The I3 chip handles all duties even light 2D CAD. I was sceptical of the Acer brand but am no longer. Great laptop.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Reviewed by Wally - August 15, 2021

    This is the latest of several laptops and the second ACER machine I have owned over the years. I now have the Geek Squad look after the transfer of programs/data from my old machine and found the transition relatively painless. The usual quirks of a new machine were all solved with their help and I am now back to normal with a much improved quality product.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
