My New Acer Aspire 4310 Laptop!

For many days, or rather weeks, I have been going on and on about laptops and I have been obsessed with laptops to the point that I couldn't concentrate on studying.

But after several weeks and with one swipe of a Citibank Credit Card, presto! My new Acer Aspire 4310 Laptop:

Picture Credits goes to: as I am very lazy to take a picture and upload photos of my laptop anyway, they look the same.

You might be wondering why I didn't get the Acer Aspire 4315 or the Asus X51R... anyway the Acer Aspire 4315 is actually phased-out in the Philippines and the 4310 is way better as it has a built in web camera and microphone perfect for web video conferencing! Here are the specs:

Although the Asus X51R is better than the Acer Aspire 4310 (here is my post about the Asus X51R laptop: my mom got me an Acer because of it's great promo: 0% Interest!

Anyway I am very happy with my laptop and despite it's humble Intel Celeron 1.73Ghz speed, it's still fast enough to meet up with my multitasking and stuff, so in short I love my laptop! ^_^

It is fast enough to play some games like SIMS 2 and Red Alert 2 so I have no problem, non at all. The battery life is actually good. The speaker is not that good but I won't be using my laptop for playing music at parties so it's ok.

Over all, I give it an 8 out of 10 because it's functionality and ease of use (lots of quick access buttons, I love it!) plus it's very affordable price of Php 30,000 makes it an ideal laptop for students like me. I can really use this laptop as a student nurse for my research and case presentations. This laptop is actually very good for presentations with LCD projectors because it's compatible with any LCD projector, I actually have used this laptop for 2 presentations.

This laptop is a great buy people!


  1. you should give lotsa hugs to the owner of the plastic used to buy your lappie:)

    i'm using a toshiba satellite for a year now. not state of the art but the best thing is, it was given to my family by a relative.hehe.

    i am thinking of getting an asus eee series once the moolah comes in although it doesn't have an optical media drive and works on a flash memory.

    but it will surely come in handy each night i watch online videos via crunchyroll.

  2. I love Toshiba laptops! also had a Toshiba Satellite which I adored but it died due to old age hehehe.

    Yup the Asus Eee Series is nice! Very small and very handy!

    You watch videos through crunchyroll too? I watch my anime through crunchyroll, especially naruto hahaha! They should give that website an award or something. But again if it gets too famous, the owner might start charging people to view his vids hahaha!
