My Consumer Report Conclusion
Well, considering the very attractive price and the capabilities of this laptop we would recommend it because of its great value for money ratio. Acer 5253 is not a cutting edge device but it would do all the basic stuff just fine and probably a bit more. For this price it would be a great present or a first timer laptop. And once more - it is a great deal, especially with the Thierry Mugler Designer Laptop Case.
