Reviews for the Acer Extensa 2508-C3QZ

60% The sub-£300 Windows laptop that lasts over 7 hours between charges
Source: PC Advisor English
Beware of quality-control issues on an otherwise just about serviceable Windows laptop. The Extensa 15 keeps price and performance low with its cheap components and free Windows OS, but at just £280 it should prove popular.

The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.
