I'm a college student who just needed laptop for basic, general use. That includes basic internet browsing (often with many tabs), opening multiple, large, textbook-sized PDFs, running large powerpoints that professors often use and running programs like Skype, usually all at the same time. I'm also a computer enthusiast; I'm accustomed to high performance parts.

And I chose this laptop.
------------------------------------------
BASIC INFO

This is the first laptop I've owned. Right out of the box, WEI rates the memory, desktop graphics and hard drive at 5.9, "gaming" graphics are rated at 6.5 and the processor is rated at 6.7; thus the overall system rating is 5.9.

Like most laptops, this one also has bloatware. This was a nonissue for me since I did a clean installation of Windows 7.

Note that the processor actually comes clocked at 1.5 GHz and not 1.4 GHz as Amazon has stated in the specifications.

The laptop has 4GB of memory; there are two sticks of 2GB RAM. The model is Samsung M471B5773CHS-CH9. 512MB of memory is shared with the APU, leaving 3.47GB for the rest of the system.

The 1.3 MP camera works. Nothing much else to say about this.
------------------------------------------
AESTHETICS

Its design is sleek and simple. Nothing gaudy and that's how I like it.

The laptop has a glossy screen which may present glare problems if you use it outdoors. There is no glare when used indoors unless you're in exceptionally bright lighting. The monitor's viewing angle is decent; people sitting next to you shouldn't have a problem viewing your screen. There's no indicator light for when the webcam is activated.

I have been researching laptops for quite a few weeks before I decided to purchase this one. The goal for me was to find a laptop powerful enough for gaming for $500 or less. Yes, the options were very low, but then I found this beauty. I can play games like World of Warcraft and League of Legends at nearly the highest settings with no screen tearing, lag, etc. Everything runs surprisingly smooth. I've played WoW for a few hours in a row without the laptop overheating. I would also like to mention that this laptop is very quiet. It is not noisy at all.

Pros
-Powerful for the price
-No noise when on for hours even in games
-No overheating
-Keys are nice and quiet
-Sleek and attractive design
-Etc!

Cons
-Speakers are not the greatest, but not a huge enough flaw to worry about in my opinion
-Can't think of anything else!

So yes, I must give it a 5 out of 5! This laptop is worth every penny! If you are on a tight budget but desire a laptop for gaming, this is the laptop for you!

My dad helped me purchase this Acer Aspire 5560-7402 laptop. We managed to get it at the price of 400 dollars and payed a little extra for the 2 day shipping. Amazon got the laptop here in perfect shape in less than 24 hours!
Be aware that there is a lot of "bloat-ware" installed from the beginning. I was rather vicarious and uninstalled a little too much in the beginning which caused some issues with the wireless. I ended up having to do a complete system restore, and I was lucky that Acer had such an option. Essentially it was a big reset button. So I'm just saying be careful with what you uninstall in the programs menu.
Also, another thing that confused me a bit in the beginning was the mention of "Turbo CORE technology" which clocks the CPU up to 2.4Ghz. I thought that there would be a some software that would give the the option to "Turbo" or Overclock your CPU, but found no such thing. After some research, Turbo Core Technology essentially Overclocks for a few Milliseconds, only when it is needed most (during a stressful in-game match for example). I'm not sure how much of a difference that makes, but it sounds pretty cool. Just be aware that you really are purchasing a laptop with a 1.5Ghz quad-core CPU, not 2.4Ghz. (Only for fractions of a second).
The games I have played are all online: World of Tanks, Diablo 3, and Team Fortress 2. I keep them on a low to medium graphical setting, because I prefer a silky smooth frame rate. I have played for a couple hours straight while running Skype without any complaints from my new laptop.
:THE PROS:
Price.
Rock solid gaming performance.
The Laptop Microphone works surprisingly well.

PROs: The design is slick. Thin and very lightweight for a 15.6" laptop. Windows live ratings: processor: 6.7, gaming graphics: 6.7, meaning you can play most of the recent games in low/medium settings, use photoshop and illustrator with no problems. Few laptops in this price range have comparable or better graphics card. Super-fast boot and shut-down. Silent and cool, no overheating problem at all. No hardware problems in 1 month of use.
CONs: The price fluctuates madly, must check other comparable laptops and websites before making a purchase. Many bloatware, took me almost a day to uninstall all.

Highly recommended if you need a little more than a word processor and a web browser but not looking for a monster gaming laptop.
