Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5101AWLMi Vista

ACER Aspire 5101 Review
Source: OurNotebookReviews English
I am new to laptops and this is my first purchase. I am about to move out of a nice spacious house probably into single room accomdation. Bearing this in mind lugging my desktop computer and CRT monitor around everywhere was going to be a pain. I had initially set my desktop up to be a good gaming machine but soon realised I wasn’t using it much for that. So the laptop I was after only had to be good for basic functions, DVD, and probably TV. I wanted as good as spec as I could get (naturally), and a must was a dual layer DVD writer.
