Customer Reviews

The styling and ergonomics are very professional looking.

Anyway not a good consumer experience, maybe you will have better luck, but I don't think I'll be buying another Acer.

This is a great laptop - comparable to those costing much more.

The first thing I noticed when I turned this laptop on was the big beautiful bright screen. The second thing was that this looks like it should have cost way more than it did. The styling and ergonomics are very professional looking. The keyboard is easy to use and fits my larger fingers with ease, and I love the full included 10-key pad. The multi-touch touchpad is big and responsive. I love the built-in scroll function. I have installed Microsoft Office 2010, Photoshop CS5, WinAMP, Civilization IV, and Assassin's Creed so far, and all the programs run beautifully. I am not getting great speed out of Photoshop, but that is to be expected, after all this is a laptop. I especially love the hi-def visualizations in WinAMP. The dual-core processor so far has handled multitasking well. I was listening to music, burning DVDs, and playing Civ IV all at the same time with no problems. Windows 7 made connecting to my wireless network a snap, and I noticed much faster file transfer speeds with this laptop than i was getting with my Win XP desktop.

The only real complaint I have with this product is the lack of built-in bluetooth. But for less than 600 bucks, I can't expect everything. One other area where Acer went wrong is partnering with McAfee for antivirus protection. Ladies and Gentlemen, McAfee SUCKS. I quickly uninstalled it and installed ESET antivirus instead. Other small complaints include all the "free" trials of software preinstalled on the hard drive, and, the touchpad is maybe just a little TOO big, sometimes when typing my palm hits it, sending my cursor flying off.

This computer won't play the newest and greatest games, but it handles everything else I've thrown at it with ease. Unless you need a hardcore gaming rig or the ability to render hi-def video in realtime, you can't beat this machine for the price.

I bought the Acer Aspire AS7551-2531 as a gift to someone I know. But before I gave the computer to this very lucky person, I was testing it to see how good it really was. First off, Acer did something really nice with the packaging and the feeling I got from just opening it and observing the product was amazing. I won't spoil those details and will leave you to see for yourselves if you buy it.
Now onto the real specs of this affordable powerhouse. The memory of the laptop is very high speed and gave me a 7.5 on the Windows Experience Index (WEI). The processor is also very fast as it is the second generation dual core of the Athlon family, the Athlon II. The integrated ATI Radeon 4250 performs very well for its intended uses, which is more on the lines of video instead of gaming. But that did not stop me from trying it out on some of my games :) . I actually managed to play Street Fighter IV on this notebook (DVD I purchase when it first came out) with settings between mid to high at 1280x720. This was accomplished by downloading and installing the AMD Dual Core Optimizer (DCO) from AMD's support website. So with that I say that gaming wise, this laptop can have secondary or tertiary uses in light gaming, with the only exception of Street Fighter IV, which are games that do not require the beefy, monsters that are the desktop graphics cards on desktops. The sound quality on this laptop is also good. The only drawbacks I think of is the fact that the notebook has no Blu-ray drive built in, but perhaps this is a good thing considering the power of Radeon HD 4250. Also, it only comes with about 3 or 4 USB 2.0 ports, not the 3.0 standard, and no express card slot. In addition, The laptop has only 3.0 hours battery life.

I purchased this in Feb '10 from Staples, I find Feb is a good time to buy laptops. I've got 5 of them in the family, we ditched desktops a few years ago, and use network storage etc. I was very skeptical about the laptop before purchasing. The rep said they were "ok" but was pointing me towards hp. I've already got newer Lenovo (love it for ubuntu), HP, two Compaq's, and an older Dell. None of my laptops had a numeric keypad and I was tired of lugging around an external corded numeric keypad. My wife's HP has a numeric keypad, but it's a 15.6 display and the keyboard is crunched into a small space, so for me, needing to do a lot of accounting work, it wasn't practical. When I saw the 499 sale price I really wondered if it was going to work ok. I doubted just about everything about it, but the keyboard sold me. They keys are really nicely placed with a little separation like some Sony laptops. However, once I started using it, I found this was an awesome purchase especially in terms of value and performance.

I find the battery power routinely gives me 3.5+ hours and the processor doesn't break a sweat -- it's cool on my lap even after many hours of work. The screen gives me enough space to spit the screens and have enough space to work on my accounting work. Other benefits - the multi-gesture touchpad is cool and has proved useful. The wifi is great, picks up the n with my dlink 655 beautifully, and even as an ubuntu bigot I have grown to really like windows 7! Overall, I don't write many of these reviews, but I felt really strongly about this laptop, it has been great!
