ContentBurst–Post 3: Acer Aspire 5250 review

This is the first review on a computer we have ever done here at GB7, so here we go!

If you are looking for a cheap, but useful computer for anything you do, the Acer Aspire 5250 if for you, costing only $270. The wireless could be a lot better and it isn’t very tough. Here are the stats:

  • RAM: 2 GB
  • OS: Windows 7
  • Windows Experience Index rating: 2.8
  • Processor: AMD C-50 Processor with 1.00 GHz
  • System type: 64-bit
  • Touch: No

It’s a little large for my bag, but it works well. The power cord is getting frayed up a bit, but it’s all my desk’s fault (bad desk, bad!) My friend said that he had problems running Ubuntu Linux on his, and I haven’t tried yet, so try to stay away from that. I’m running out of time here, so here’s a picture:

I won’t see you… I don’t know…) Smile
