The E528 is a fairly quick, well made laptop, with high quality parts. The LG Philips led screen gives a clear and realistic picture. It runs very cool, with the Intel cpu and Hitachi hard drive regularly around 25-30c. The keyboard keys have short strokes, and are laid out nicely. A 4-cell battery powers the e528 for hours. The touchpad also works well. The dvd-rw worked quietly, while creating the windows 7 restore discs. 2g's of ddr3 RAM is fast. The 250gb hitachi hd is large enough for me, and most people, I suspect. The 64-bit Windows 7 runs very well, and has benefits over both vista and xp. The Intel sound card works great through amplified aftermarket speakers, however the sound from the built in single speaker is very weak, almost like listening to an earphone from a foot away. A convenient sd/mmc media reader uploads pictures directly from my camera. The E-528 comes with toll free tech support from ACER owned emachines, who are known to make very reliable computers. Overall, the fit and finish is much nicer than its' low price would indicate. Love mine.
