"no replacement parts ,low battery life"3.0 starson by davidlharwood
Pros: it works fine and has an atractive price
Cons: computors are used in work and school settings and are relied on to store important infomation if acer is not going to make replacement parts for its products then it should have to be added in ther advertisement adds in bold highlighted print,,!!!!
Summary: i happen to owne an acer aspire 3680 i purchased in july 07 and so far nothing catitrophic has happend yet ,but have had problems with a few of the keys popping off and while i have found a websight where ther are keyboards sold ther are none for the 3680 ofcorce ,also the battery life is advertised as having farmore charge life than it actualy has .also the scroll buttons under the mouse pad work when they desire and have you have to apply much more presure than you should have to to get it to work .also the speakers dont have the quality sound you would expect nore the volume dosent get loud enoug for me.other than that i do like the inner workings seem to respond well it dosent freez up the windows vista works well enough eventhough i like xp better i think ,but over all the aspire 3680 work well enough but im just finding out about the deal about no replacement parts and that bothers me because it seem like a rip off to the consumer and in thease days we need more reliable equipment ,and i may have baught one acer but i wont buy another and wouldnt have baught this one knowing i couldnt have it repaired ,even though acer offers an extended warrente ,i guess i should have broke it somehow and sent it back to get a new computor from acer ,,,but wouldnt that be wrong of me and ripping off acer ,well anyways i guess thats what companys are breading in people ,,because thats the only way around this problem acer has caused by not making replacement parts for ther computor ,yeah i purchased a cheeper computor for my teenage son,but next time i will spend the money on a computor i know i can get parts for
