Pure Entertainment. 17 inch display, DirectX 11 capable graphic card, quad-core processor and BluRay drive: Acer has bundled a lavishly configured multimedia at a fair price with the Aspire 7551G-N934G64Bn. We've checked if this offer is too good to be...

Affordable ; Big screen ; These HD graphics were good in their time but AMD's new APUs are better

Acer AS7551-7422 Phenom II Quad-Core N970 2.2GHz 4GB 500GB DVD?RW 17.3'' LED Notebook W7HP w/Webcam & 6-Cell (Black)

 

This refurbished laptop is a great value and other than the fact that it comes with none of the original documentation it is just like a brand new laptop.

this unit is slow, is constantly updating programs so can't do anything. We have a DELL that is over 5 yrs old and it puts the new one to shame. Extremely disappointed and will be returning under the 45 day return policy
