Has anyone had an Acer laptop that has actually worked?

Asked by basp (4806points) September 22nd, 2008 from iPhone

I had gotten an Acer laptop and it never worked correctly since the day I got it. I had it worked on several times and even sent it back to the place that made it. I finally gave up on it but am still ticked off that I was taken.

It is not uncommon to have a laptop that has a few issues. Usually the cheaper ones will have more problems because they have parts that are out of date and have very little support for them. Acer is known to make several models of Laptops and Desktops that are rather cheap. Before buying a new laptop or desktop, you should read reviews from a variety of places. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is… On the other hand, I have seen $2000 Sony Vaio’s come into the install bay of a retail place I used to work, and that Sony Vaio had more problems than any Acer I have ever worked on. So again, it is more likely to get a bad product that is cheap, but the same thing can happen with a product that is 2–3 times the price.

my stepfather has one that i’ve used and it works fine. He said it was $600 at best buy (i think).

My wife has an Acet, as does my mother. Both work fine, albeit my wife’s is a little slow. But that’s to be expected as it’s fairly old, at least by computer standards.

I have an Acer 5720 laptop. I use it all day long, day in and day out, and have done so for the last 10 months. Intel Centrino Core2 Duo processor, Nvidia GeForce 8400m GS 256 MB video graphics, running Vista Home Premium.

Love my Acer and the value – paid $650.00.
