I wasn't really familiar with computers, let alone laptops when my husband bought my acer laptop for an anniversary present. However, in the two years that I have had it, I have been able to learn quite a lot about it. I usually use it for emails and searching the web, but I have also learned how to work the dvd burning feature and made copies of several personal dvds of trips that we have had to share with my friends. I have also learned how to burn and rip cds and to add music to my mp3 player, which I use for walks. I like experimenting with my acer, and they have many helpful hints to show you how to work different features that you may not be familiar with. Among the things I enjoy most are the "favorites" feature, which enables me to store things that I want to repeatedly look at, without having the look them up each time; the Google is easily accessible and they have allowed me to pick interesting and beautiful pictures for my desktop along with the option of putting my own personal pictures in instead. Overall, I like the acer computer very much for what my needs are.
