Hi, I'm looking for a laptop under $200. I hope you can help me. Thank you very much in advance. Greetings.
This is a great deal,Ihave had great 8success with refurbished computers,so much so I ll never buy a new one again.plus the one recommended here is loaded .gl
The Acer NV where the power button broke had the button curiously located in the hinge, a terrible design choice. It actually broke after 5 years, but I was able to keep it running for 2 more years by using a program to automatically start up the computer at a designated time each day. (I couldn't completely shut it down or it wouldn't start up at all.) My current Acer Aspire looks to be more solidly built, but time will tell. My only other ownership experience was with Toshiba (one good, one terrible) and some super-cheap awful desktop PCs like Packard-Bell and Compaq.@South Park I don't like Acer laptops, as they known for being of poor quality. But having said that, I usually don't like consumer model laptops of any brand, due to the typically poor build quality.
I recently bought an Acer TravelMate business laptop, as I often buy cheap laptops from eBay to resell. The quality was not what I would expect from a business laptop, with flimsy hinges that would have broken in time, which is something you don't typically see on business laptops. However their TimelineX range of business laptops are meant to be of decent quality.
difficult to get something good new at that figure, if you add something you can take the Lenovo ideapad s130, it could be enough for the use you will have to make of it.
What about their ultrabooks, since they're thin and all?As many said..ACER laptops are poor built..Cheap mother boards..filmy hinges ..Poor thermals ( Gaming laptops)..Gateway is there manufacturing unit.
But Acer did improve from around 2017..with Nitro series and Predator series..for consumer line...these are robust build with reasonable tag...took them 7 yrs to get into line.
Their business line is top quality ..aspire series are always tough built.
You get what you pay for !
