    First I’d like to clarify the product description. The processor chip is actually an Intel Celeron 1005M. The rest of the description is accurate. My needs are for internet, spreadsheets, word docs, email, photos, videos, Netflix, Youtube, Amazon, Google Earth, games, animated weather maps, specialty soft ware for flight planning, etc. this laptop does all that with ease.
    It is well made. All components seem perfectly matched. AND BEST OF ALL…IT COMES WITH WINDOWS 7!!!!!

    Very good for general use; great for seniors., September 4, 2013

    anon87 (Claremont, CA) –

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I purchased this computer for my mom and dad to use. They are 74 and 77 years old, respectively.

    Since their old PC was Vista–need I say more?–I thought that the more reliable Windows 7 operating system would be to their liking. I did not want to burden them with Windows 8, which is not appealing to most of my friends, who are in their 40s and early 50′s.

    It was easy to configure the Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome browsers to their liking.

    The touch pad was something new for them. Both are trying to get used to it. I did teach them to turn it off when they are typing documents, in case the trackpad is too sensitive and starts causing keyboard errors. Even if a mouse is connected to the system, if the trackpad is not turned off, there may still be typing errors.

    I like the DVD burner. I used it immediately to make eRecovery disks, one set for myself and one for them. The password reinstaller CD may also be a helpful thing to do early on. It is easy to find the eRecovery area, in case you need to reinstall it to original factory specifications. I like that feature. In the older models, it was not always there.

    I removed some bloatware, like the Norton Backup and the version of McAfee that came with it. I installed the McAfee software from their internet provider, instead, which did not take very long.

    Installing their external hard drive with our family photos was also easy to do. The screen quality is good. With their old Vista PC, the slide show did not function well. I did not need to worry here. It shows Youtube videos without hesitating, which I tried after the Adobe Flash Player was updated.

    I own other Acer laptops, the Acer Aspire One 725-0899, Win 7, which I use for word processing and business trips. It sometimes hesitates during Hulu viewing, but for the convenience of portability that fits in my purse, it’s okay. I don’t like the SD slot, in which the cards stick frequently, requiring tape and pressure with fingers to extract the card. I have 2 old XP machines, which are Aspire 5002 WIMI and an old netbook Aspire One, which are compatible to my workplace computers. I still use them sometimes.

    I am very satisfied with the Acer E1-531-2686 as being family friendly, good for emails, multimedia, and general purpose use.

    It is also a very attractive red color, which pleased my mom very much.

    I hope the company keeps this model around longer. I really don’t like Windows 8. People need alternatives before Windows Blue fixes the problems that we have currently.

    Great Budget Laptop, October 15, 2013

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Acer Aspire E1-531-2438 15.6″ Laptop (1.9 GHz Intel Celeron 1005M Processor, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD – DVD plus/minus RW DL Drive, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) Glossy Black (Personal Computers)

    Like you, I needed a laptop and started my search on Amazon only to compare what I liked to the big box stores. I was looking for a cheap “beater” laptop. I didn’t need anything fancy, and this laptop looked like it fit the bill.

    This laptop comes with a Celeron processor. I had images in my mind about the Celerons of yesteryear and was put off by this because they were typically slow. I took a chance without looking into the CPU further due to the price. This Celeron is an Ivy Bridge processor which was a huge shock to me. And though it’s not an i3,i5 or i7 it does the job just fine.

    Who should buy this and why.

    You should buy this if:

    You need something somewhat inexpensive
    You want a computer that has Windows 7
    You need a CD/DVD drive
    You want a laptop that has a full size key board
    You want/need a laptop that has a large hard drive – this laptop has a 500 gb hard drive
    You do not want to “upgrade” to Windows 8

    I personally do not use the keyboard as I am not a fan of the style of keys that this laptop has. Plus the layout is weird and my fingers never got used to it. I would have preferred the mouse pad to be moved over to the right about 3-4 inches. No matter. I bought a Logitech wireless keyboard right away as nothing beats a real deal full size keyboard.

    The battery life is pretty good. I have not timed it out, but I’d say it’s on par with Acer’s claims.

    One thing that does suck is the bloatware (pre-installed software) that comes on this machine, which is to be expected nowadays. It does come with a bunch BUT you can get rid of all of it almost immediately using PC Decrapifier. This works very well. I highly recommend. Plus, it’s free.

    Basically if you want something cheap(ish) do not ignore this laptop. I consider myself to be a more advanced user as I have built numerous computers from scratch, so my expectations are somewhat high…and even so I find this laptop to be above average for my needs. I’m sure at some point I could upgrade the RAM, but at this point I don’t even see the need.

    For the money, I think you would be hard pressed to find something comparable with the features this has.

    11/14/13 UPDATE

    I play Left 4 Dead 2 on the regular. Not on my laptop but on my main desktop computer. I was bored last night and hopped on Steam and downloaded L4D2 on this laptop, just to check. I was expecting it to be laggy and choppy, and eventually crash, due to tons of fast moving objects on screen. I was way wrong. Talk about impressive! This game plays very well on this laptop. Not like my main computer…but then, my main computer has a video card in it that was more expensive than this laptop. I did notice some choppiness when the screen filled with zombies, but nothing that made me want to turn if off. I was planning on getting rid of this laptop and then get another one with a video card so I could play games, but after playing last night, I don’t see the need anymore. I’m keeping this until it dies. Way to go Acer.

    12/12/13 UPDATE

    I have experienced my first hardware/software problem with this laptop. There are 3 USB ports. 1 on the left and 2 on the right. The port that is closest to me on the right hand side has pretty much died. Anytime I plug something in it says that the device has failed. But this is weird. I can plug my smart phone in, and it will charge the phone, but that’s it. I cannot access anything on my phone. But when I move it to the port next to it, I can access everything/charge the phone. So there is power there, but something is not right. Annoying? Yes, as I am using the other 2 ports on a consistent basis. One for the wireless keyboard and 1 for my external mouse.

    I went into the device manager and tried uninstalling the “unknown device” and then plugging my phone back in, in the hopes that it will reinstall the driver for the phone like normal, and that didn’t do anything. When I plug my mouse into this port, the laser does not come on, and it does not work, yet there is power there to charge a phone, but not enough to allow you to do anything else with this port.

    Maybe this is hardware, maybe it’s software and the computer could use a fresh install of Windows 7. I may try that out later on down the road. Or maybe I’ll say screw it and just buy a USB hub and deal with it. This is not a deal breaker, I still love this laptop.
