“At the time of buying the acer aspire laptop it was...”

Written on: 19/09/2009

At the time of buying the acer aspire laptop it was well priced for it's spec. The screen is a crystal brite screen by Acer it looks well. The battery was great at the start but with any battery it has disintegrated over the two or so years I have had the laptop. The particular one I got was a Centrino Core 2 Duo 1.66GHz running on XP MCE. It was really quick especially when considering it only had 512MB Ram. Nothing hardware wise has went wrong on the PC as of yet, only the webcam gave trouble… Read Full Review

“ Acer Aspire 5633 WLMi. Good general purpose laptop....”

Written on: 26/01/2009

Acer Aspire 5633 WLMi. Good general purpose laptop. Never used for gaming but all other tasks ran just fine. Survived not one but 2 major spillages alas got fried on the 3rd!

Laptop was happily reformatted (10GB for XP MC on C:) releasing the HD recovery space. XP MC was installed again using the recovery disks (the user must create these first).

A sturdy, reliable and robust product. ACER is certainly a good brand in my opinion… Read Full Review

“My Aspire 5633 has a great graphics card (NVidia...”

Written on: 17/01/2009 by foreveronhold (2 reviews written)

My Aspire 5633 has a great graphics card (NVidia GEForce Go 7300 with 512 MB) and everything works very well after 2 years. The fan died exactly after 1 year but with the extended guarantee (valid across Europe) I had it replaced within a week and did not even pay for postage (collected by UPS, prepaid by Acer).a bit slow to boot, but I've read elsewhere that this could be solved by getting rid of the empowering technology stuff. I am very happy with this laptop and would definitely recommend… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/08/2008

I cannot find any evidence that it has bluetooth even though it is supposed to.
I cannot work more than 1 hour and a half because.. the battery needs to be charged.
When I reinstalled windows because I was sick of vista and I wanted xp, I had to reinstall every driver starting with audio drivers and finishing with wireless card. And surprise, I could not download the drivers from acer's website because...when I clicked the downloads column it said the page cannot be displayed… Read Full Review

If when you where sold it, you were told that it had bluetooth, you should have went back to where you bought it from, but I would say it's to late now, you might have had it for quite some time.
<br/>
<br/>I don't know of a battery that lasts longer than roughly 90 min when you are actually using the laptop, that's quite average really, the battery life given by any manufacturer tends to be the length of time it will stay on stand by or hibernation and my model lasts hours ans hours in hibernation and anyway batterys are consumable products just like mobile phone batteries.
<br/>
<br/>You will have problems loading one os over another, clean wipe is advised and to everyones grief unfortunately if you successful like posibly were. Drivers aren't easy to find especially for laptops with vista more upgrading to vista my advice would be get techinican to do it, a profesional not any next door neighbours son.

Give it time! mines hopless. Never worked properly from a week after I got it. The so called e software with Vista dont work to well. And acer's website fixes didnt work.
<br/>After sales service not to good. (Dont format the hard drive) Acer customer services told me I would have to pay £50+ to send me a disc. To reload the pre instaled software.

Written on: 01/08/2007 by computerman (1 review written)

-The Intel Core 2 Duo processor is super quick and never overheats with the efficient and never over used cooling fan.
-The programs it comes installed with are super handy as well. For instance it comes with Acer eSecurity which allows the user to lock any program or file to outsiders. The other programs include: DVD making equipment, battery managing and program organising equipment, 3 different DVD playing programs and Movie making equipment along with live update technology and on most… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/11/2007 by MariaHall (1 review written)

My partner, who is an IT expert, recently bought a higher spec laptop, the far more expensive Acer Aspire 5920, partly because he had been impressed with the performance of my Aspire 5633WLMi. However he has had many problems, especially with the Vista OS, so he had been looking at reviews of that to help with his problems. Out of a certain amount of competitiveness, I decided to check any reviews of my model but lo and behold there wasn't one which is why I'm writing this. I have to think… Read Full Review
