FINALLY! There is someone in the universe besides me who owns an E1-421!


If you go to my review at http://community.acer.com/t5/Notebooks-Netbooks/Aspire-E1-421/m-p/108895#U108895 you will make a painful discovery--this is a low-end laptop. If you try to increase the speed, you will have conflicts with the settings. Since the settings are designed for a low-end laptop, you will lose the conflicts.


This is an excellent machine for surfing the web, playing simple games, writing reports, etc. But if you are hoping to use it for anything that requires high-end graphics or just a lot of power, the machine simply can't do it.

Hope this helps.
