Acer Laptops : You Get What You Pay For
My Acer laptop was fine for the first year. But then it started going south from there.
The hinge started to become loose and it started to get scratched up. My battery also died but I hear that's normal.
Overall, Acer is a good cheap brand. But Dell and other places are cheap too and their laptops seem to have a lot more quality to them.
Maybe you've had a better experience?
