    So I just got a new Acer Aspire and it seems really nice. The build quality seems excellent and it's amazingly fast. However, my dad says Acer sucks :wtc: and I was wondering what everyone thinks of the company and their laptops. From what I found online it sounds like they used to be a crappy brand but improved into a very good one. I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanx.

    I've heard good things about them. Never had any first hand experience though FWIW.

    I think the computers themselfs are not bad for what you pay but I have heard and seen that the batteries lose their power quick. so while you may get 2 hours now, in like 6-9 months good luck getting more than 30 minutes.

    Yup - acer sucks. BAd built quality, bad service, bad driver support, bad, bad, bad.

    On the other hand, as long as it was dirt cheap and you accept that it's not going to last, it'll be fine.
