Bought an Acer Aspire about six years ago - yeah I know it's a long time to leave before reviewing a product but I was so traumatised by the experience that I'd wiped it from my memory until I just saw one advertised on a website.
The story goes: I paid £550 for a beautiful model (can't remember the number again due to erasing it from my mind) whose spec was very good indeed and a lovely wide screen perfect for viewing DVDs etc.
Well, I was happy for a while until it developed a BIOS issue, wouldn't boot up properly and basically became something only worth propping up an unstable table or used as a tray for carrying dishes to and from the kitchen. All of this in about 8 months. Shocking.
Luckily I managed to sell it as parts on ebay which is why I gave it the two stars.
