I don't recommend Acer laptops to anyone. Me and my brother have one each and my brother's laptop has broken for two times and mine one time for a period of two years. I also have other colleagues that own Acer laptops and all of them had problems with their laptops. Not to mention the technical support takes ages to fix anything, between 2 weeks and 2 months.
They are cheap but I don't think they worth the trouble.

I don't know if they improved their technical support by now, it has passed two years since I bought my laptop.

I hate Acer. Low quality and terrible support. I've never actually seen them fix anything, they just take 2-4 weeks to reformat the laptop and send it back. They look like hel l after a couple of years, too. They definitely don't hold up well. They're inexpensive but you get what you pay for. I'd recommend a better brand like HP, Toshiba, even Compaq anyday. Lemme try n link you a few ideas here...
