Acer NX.M9RAA.002;E1-531-2686 is a Windows 7 computer with solid performance and handy features. It is designed for customers' daily computing needs in mind without the expensive and overhyped technologies they won't need or use. Performance to price ratio is quite high, given its affordable price.

Intel Celeron 1005M at 1.9GHz processor is capable of performing quite many things: Spreadsheets, wordprocessing, emails, songs, videos, movies, not too demanding games and more. So don't worry about the 'Celeron' part, this is a fast and powerful processor that allows you to run quite a few things at the same time with also its 4GB RAM that is upgradable to 8GB.

500GB Serial ATA hard drive is more than enough for most users as storage space. You can always connect an external hard drive or even better an SSD for faster boot-ups and performance.

15.6" LED backlit display at 1366x768 pixel resolution and Intel HD Graphics offers beautiful colors and almost true to life images. Sound quality on this Acer NX.M9RAA is also quite good with very decent speakers.

Keyboard is soft and responsive and it comes with a number pad and a comfy track pad that make the typing experience a pleasant one. A lot of laptops don't have numeric pads these days but if you are going to use it for anything that requires putting in numbers, you'll be glad you bought a laptop with a 10 key numeric pad.

Acer NX.M9RAA comes with preinstalled Windows 7 operating system, which is still the choice of many computer users that just can't get used to Windows 8.

6-cell Lithium Ion battery gives you about 4 hrs of battery life in average use.

• Connectivity: DVD drive for writing and reading DVDs and CDs, built-in webcam, Wi Fi for wireless internet, Gigabit LAN Ethernet for wired connections, HDMI port to connect to larger screens, 3 x USB 2.0 ports, media card reader.

Size and Appearance: This Acer laptop can be taken around easily with its 5.5lbs weight, 1.3" thickness and 15.6" screen. You have two color options: Glossy red and glossy black and both look nice.

Verdict: Overall we're happy with what Acer NX.M9RAA.002;E1-531-2686 offers in terms of performance (power and speed), quality of build, reliability, design, screen and audio quality and price. Windows 7 notebooks are harder to come by these days, so this is one of the features that make it special for many. Hard to beat at the current Amazon price and it is well worth checking out.
