I was on a budget when shopping for my new laptop, and I did a lot of research. In the end, I went with this Acer. There were three primary aspects that sold me on this laptop, i5 CPU, slim profile brushed aluminum design, and 6000mAh rated battery.

Other features on this laptop are pretty common in the $630 price range. The screen is clear and vibrant. The actual hard drive space is 581GB with the operating system taking 30GB, so you are left with 551GB. This should be plenty more than enough for most users. These days, I almost never look at the hard drive capacity when purchasing a new computer. I think all of them have a hard drive that is big enough for me. What I care more is its clocked speed. This is not a gaming machine, so don't expect the laptop to play heavily 3D rendered games. It will play HD videos and casual games fine.

=====Battery Test=====
1). Default brightness and volume halfway, laptop gets around 4.5 hours for watching YouTube videos with no other application running in the background.
2). Default brightness and volume halfway, laptop also gets around 4.5 hours for browsing the web, chatting on an instant messenger, and playing music using Windows Media Player.
3). Brightness to its lowest but not turning off the screen and idling the laptop without any application running, it will last 10+ hours.

Overall the laptop does not achieve its claimed 8-hour limit under practical use. For most users, you will probably end up between 4 and 5 hours, but this is still better than 2-3 hours that you could get from other competitors in this price range.

Here I'm going to list the pro's and con's of this laptop that I think are relevant in the $630 price range.

I was surprised after reading the first and only review gave this machine 3 stars.... This is a five star machine. I did A LOT of homework before getting this computer. If you read the reviews of similar models that simply have smaller hard drives and slower processors, you will get the jist of just how solid this laptop is.

I am not going to go into a lot of detail, but if you go into the purchase understanding that this laptop does not have bluetooth (not an issue for me at all), then you will love it!

I got this for my daughter for an early graduation present and to take on to college next fall. She wanted a laptop that had longer battery life than MOST computers. It does! You will not find a model with these specs, for this price with longer battery life. You will have to get a smaller screen size to do that. She wanted it large enough to watch a movie or tv show via the internet from time to time (plus it has the HDMI out to hook to TV). She wanted a hard drive large enough to hold all her pics and songs. We put everything on there already (tons of pics and about 1500 songs) and it still has 528 GB left! If you need a computer with more storage, you should GET AN EXTERNAL DRIVE! Geez! You can get 2 TB drive for less than $100 at Newegg.

And I would like to add that NO hard drive is going to yeild the space that is advertised because of two main factors- 1) It is measured differently by the operating system vs. the manufacturers (about 7% less)- which is true of of all hard drives! Of course this disparity becomes more apparent the larger the hard drive (7% of 640 is almost 45 GB!).
2) Hey folks! There is a thing called the OPERATING SYSTEM that uses some space.

It's been about 6 weeks since I started this AS5820T-6401. I have conflicted opinions; on one hand for the cost of this unit, this laptop presents remarkable features that are nicely done.
I'll just mention a couple of my personal favorites:
The processor is robust and quick. Although, I am not a "gamer" and my demands are pretty minimal,so I am not a good judge of its limitations.
The optical drive is an awfully nice feature and performs well.
The keyboard has a good feel.
The inputs and outputs all fuction well, jacks etc make solid connections.
Especially nice, is the Synaptics pad; especially when adjusting "momentum" "sticky borders"etc. This is the 1st time I actually prefer the feel more than many quality "mice" that I've used.
Although, the speakers are not loud at all,the quality of sound is very good; flat throughout the audio spectrum [that's a goods thing];especially apparent when using good headphones or more particularly, when outputting into my ampified sound system.
NOW for the conflict: and the reason I'm doing this review; there is a problem that I have, and some others have also encountered, something appears to be wrong with the BIOS or some driver as best as I can tell. A number of times the boot up never completes with it just "frozen" with the fan running etc. well before loading any windows components.
Having said this, I admit to not being a technician BUT, I've reloaded the OS using the factory backup and still have this periodic problem, especially curious that it happens the 1st time I start it in the day but I can "restart" many times later that day, without problem [its warmed up?] This is not right.
