David, Horsham General home user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
I simply don't know enough about these things to be able to complete the ratings above. But as things stand I'm pleased to have bought it, and it seems to be doing its job well. So I'll fill in 7 for everything just because the computer won't let me submit the review without filling something in.
Bad points:
No. As it happens, I can't yet connect to my old printer, but I'm sure the computer expert at the local store will help me with that once he has recovered from the bug that laid him low recently.

Manufacturer's Description

Ideal for everyday computing tasks, the Acer E5-551 15.6" Laptop is great for staying in touch, surfing the web and light photo-editing and gaming. Windows 8.1

The Aspire E5-551 comes pre-installed with the intuitive Windows 8.1 operating system. An evolution of the Home Screen used in previous Windows generations, the new Start Screen is based around Live Tiles, which put your most used information, apps, software and files within easy access as soon as you turn on.

Navigating Windows is easy; simply move around with the trackpad and flip between the Home Screen, software and browser tabs using convenient gestures, such a three-fingered swipe to move between tabs or a pinching motion to zoom.

Windows 8.1 includes familiar additions and enhanced functionality, including the re-introduction of the start button, improvements to search and extensive customisation options.

AMD processing

The E5-551 is driven by an AMD A10-7300 processing unit with 2.0 GHz clocking. Its 3.2 GHz TurboBoost is ready to come into play when tasks become over demanding. The quad-core processor performance makes light work of everyday computing tasks.

Multitasking is taken care of by a large 8 GB of DDR3 RAM. From streaming music to running multiple instances of software, you can rely on the E5-551 to work smoothly and efficiently.

1 TB storage

File storage is provided by a 1 TB hard drive that has enough space for all your media, documents and programs.

Backing up your data is easier than ever too thanks to a USB 3.0 port. Providing quicker file transfers than previous generations, swiftly copy the biggest files to external storage.

Multimedia

The 15.6" LED display is ideal for entertainment, providing HD playback of movies and images. Unlike many slim laptops, the E5-551 features a DVD reader and writer, so you can watch films wherever you are. The built-in speakers also produce high quality audio for a great entertainment experience.

You can also enjoy your digital content on a large screen TV by connecting an HDMI cable between the laptop and screen.

Connected

Getting online is simple thanks to built-in WiFi while integrated Bluetooth technology provides a wireless connection to accessories such as Bluetooth-enabled speakers.

With its compact and portable design, the Acer E5-551 is an ideal travelling companion and you can stay in touch with loved ones using the integrated webcam.

With an HD screen, AMD Radeon graphics and a powerful processor, the Acer E5-551 15.6" Laptop is a great all-rounder, perfect for home or office tasks.
