The Acer Aspire has come in a few different options and of which, mine started off with an 80GB HDD, 1.86Ghz Intel Celeron, 1GB RAM and Intel X3100 graphics chip. Since then, it's been boosted to 3GB RAM and 2.00Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo and has a 5200mAh battery which boosts from the original 2 hour max to 4 hours. The laptop's standard spec is good enough for everyday computing and get's the job done with littlery effort. But if you're looking to have lots of applications open or intend to do RAM… Read Full Review

I've bought 3 of these computers now and each of them have had a hard drive problem every time..... When you buy it its fine for the first few months but then I just ran into so many problems with it and as a result have lost all my work and memoriable photos/videos I cannot get back. I would definately say do not get this laptop!!!… Read Full Review

I bought mine a few years ago new for £299. No complaints at all. It came with vista, which i found very reliable. Since vista is going out soon, am banking XP pro will keep getting support from software manufacturers etc since so many people use it, so going to put in larger disk and install XP Pro… Read Full Review

of common faults. mine wont run from the battery that is to say it wont charge the battery. these laptops have internal motherboard faults which cause them not to power up. i would reccomend you place it on a large book or so so the vents are not blocked! i cleaned the fan a year ago but its worth saying there is no smokers in our house so maybee that is why others are heating up. the day i got this i had vista removed and xp put on. best move i ever made : this laptop is used daily and usually… Read Full Review

this laptop comes with windows vista, uninstall it pronto, xp or win7 is a safer bet, upgrade the memory to 2 gig and you have a powerfull laptop on your hands, battery life is extremely poor, screen is one of the best, but the inbuilt graphics are not good for gaming, i use for mixing music and its performed really quite nicely, on the overheating problem, just go to the acer site and download the Epowermanagement file, cause after installing a new os it will be missing, standard windows… Read Full Review

I owned this laptop for only 5 months and closed the top down and the next day opened it and the screened was cracked above the right hand hinge. Was told it was not covered by warranty. This is a real disappointment in this product. Wouldn't recommend or tell anyone to buy this brand ever, ever, ever. Didn't stand behind their product. B.C… Read Full Review

I have mixed feelings about the Acer 5315.Ive had it for about 3 years.It was considered fairly good at the time,it has a 80g hard drive and one gig of ram and although there was laptops more powerfull and with bigger hard drives at the time it was probaly the cheapest compared to others with the same spec.Ran with no problems for a while but like all laptops,its only getting slower.Havent had any problems whith the keyboard exept the d key which occationaly lifts up but it is 3 years… Read Full Review

Basically the laptop comes with 1GB memory and 80GB hardrive. It has a 15'' screen and built in wireless technology.
My laptop came with windows vista , fairly drastic changes from XP but one you get familiar with these changes.
Also installed when you purchase this laptop are the microsoft Office programmes (Word, Excel, etc) but they are only a trial version, and I think you have to buy the full version. If you don't want to buy the full version tho, there are very similar Microsoft… Read Full Review

I wouldnt recommend this laptop to anybody. I have had nothing but trouble with it from the start. It over heats and turns off very easily as the fan is no good on it. The laptop is easy to use, but it is definatley not value for money. Anytime it is on my lap it overheats very quickly. The battery life is very short too. definatley a badly designed laptop. As the laptop was a new design when i got it, there were unfortunatly no reviews on the laptop… Read Full Review

I can't believe all the negative remarks, the only negative thing I have to say about it is windows vista installed , but that's easy fixed go back to XP and the thing flies, one the easiest laptops to upgrade I am now running a core 2 duo in mine and 2 gig of ram.I have an N series wifi card on the way to upgrade the wifi in it (although the original wifi is excellent).
As far as no recovery disks, there is a recovery partition which will reinstall the machine back to factory setup and will… Read Full Review

This was my first laptop...and I have to say that overall I've been happy with it...or at least I was until a few months ago. The screen is pretty big and very clear and it plays all my films and everything fine and the wireless never fails.
Here's the problems...
There is nowhere near enough memory on this laptop, I have the 1gb 80gb model and I can't play any games on it without them freezing or crashing and I don't have enough memory for all my music etc.
It also takes and AGE to load up… Read Full Review

Really good value, easy to use, set up was simple, I bought an Acer Aspire as my 1st lap top before I went to Uni and it has served me perfectly.
As things got easier I have bought an external hard drive to put all estra stuff on.
This is a perfect laptop for a student staying away from home for the 1st time, doing general assignemnts etc; anything more complicated and a more robust model is probably advisable… Read Full Review

Generally a very good laptop, found that with a price tag of 265 GBP you were certainly getting your money's worth with the Acer Aspire 5315.
More than enough DDRAM for a basic laptop.
Screen graphics very clear.
Battery Life was good… Read Full Review

Affordable laptop, chunky, but strong. Easy to use, good starter laptop for students. However, It won't work after 13 months. Acer customer support are not interested in reparing, advsing best to take it somewhere local. Very poor customer service. 1 month outside warranty and it doesn't work!… Read Full Review
