None of the laptops I see on here have a graphics card worth anything.

Other than that, it's a decent computer. Although I haven't heard anything good about Acer other than they're cheap. Cheap for a reason?

I might jump on this if it was Intel and not 17"
I'm not asking for much am I?

This laptop has all of the good stuff and almost none of the bad. Definitely NOT a Huge Problem. I should get one to keep the other 17 inch laptop company.

How long does the battery last while it's on Powersaver mode? Balanced? Performance?

And where can I get an extended battery?

This is my exact same laptop, except with a Blu-Ray player instead of a CD-RW. Bought it a year ago last Black Friday for $100 cheaper.

Great computer, although the keyboard lets junk fall through and jam the keys. I highly recommend the brand and the computer, but this is not a deal on the price.

Not impressed by the price.

If you shop around, you can find a better brand (HP, for example) with an Intel dual core (rather than AMD) for about the same price (and with a return policy included).

Cheaper at TigerDirect, yes, but it's not new, it's refurb.

Battery life is key for me. Need something for on the road, not necessarily to play high end games but do things like Finale, PyWare, and the occasional game of Civ.

We did. Of course, we also took the time to notice that ours is NEW and Tiger is refurb.

I was on the fence, but the color killed it for me. Black or Silver would have been tough to pass on. The fact that it wasn't HP was the biggest plus. I've had good luck with Acer so far. The refurbished HP I bought from Woot earlier this year died after 3 months. It was similar to this one.

Does anyone use laptops this big anymore? I thought the reason woot sold so many netbooks is because everything is going miniature.

tiger's is a refurb. I'll take the one that's new for 10% more. Looks like a fair woot, not great, but ok.

HSN is sold out of a similar model, not as tricked out as the Woot offering, for $760. You can still watch the video, though.

Here's ShopNBC's video. Config similar to Woot's for $949.

I've owned my Acer Extensa 5620 for 3 years now, and I've had no problems barring a single subpixel that gets stuck on red from time to time. That said, Extensa is the business line, and may be built somewhat better than the Aspires.

This could be avoided by not having junk (potato chips, pretzels, plastic clothing price tag holders, etc) in close proximity of your new purchase.
