Are Acer laptops any good?

I am going to univeristy in 2 weeks and I still need to buy a new laptop, I’ve seen some good offers on a few Acer laptops, for example a laptop with a printer for £299. Would the laptop last for 2 years? I won’t be able to afford repairs, would i be better off spending all of my money on a HP or Toshiba laptop instead?

  1. the laptop will last for more than 2 years if you take care of it. Make sure it has plenty of ventitliation and use a dust buster to wipe off all the dust. Keep it cool and keep it clean. I had a ‘crappy’ laptop that is still running very well and it outlasted my sisters Sony laptop.

  2. I find Acers to be excellent, very reliable.

    Always back up your work to external/cd/dvd.

    If anything goes wrong, Acer are very easy to restore to factory settings.

  3. I think Acer are generally alright. I have an Acer desktop PC. The problem is their after sales service. When I told them I’d opened the case to put a second hard drive in, they put the phone down on me.

    I wouldn’t recommend them if you’re going to do ANY DIY maintenance!!!

  4. A timely question. I’m, on an Acer Aspire now.
    In a week or so Microsoft is shipping their NEW tablet, $199.
    Hold your breath. Other companies are too. Toshiba already has a
    laptop with a built in tablet on the back of the cover, scratch pad.
    Check out the current issue of PCWorld magazine or their
    website http://www.PCWorld.com for tablet reviews and more.

    all laptops I had were acers, I didn’t really have any problems with them except for my hard drive but that can happen on any laptop. I love acers, they run smoothly and since you’re going into university get alot of GB on it so you have alot of space for documents.
