Depends upon the issue. When it takes me most of 2 weeks to describe a problem and send back and forth pictures and follows ups and such...the email support was a real PITA. This could have been fixed very quickly with a phone call.

Thanks All !

But basically i dont care about costumer service and i dont want a laptop for gaming. I dont know why i still cant trust Acer in my heart :-?

So, for like around 400-500 dollars what would be the good laptop (or best if possible) i could get?

Toshiba is a good choice. I have seen Acers that were ok. But at the end of the day you get what you pay for. My best experience is with Sony - but a bit more expensive. My others are HP, Gateway and Dell. Gateway used to be excellent, but now they are part of Acer and my experience with the last one from mid 2010 was not so good.

The Toshiba Satellites from what I've heard, they have stellar battery life, but that might be with certain models though.

HP, Toshiba, Dell? and ASUS would be manufacturers to consider since they're the better choices.

Acer is a good intermediate computer for basic things, but if you need good reliability I would get a Lenovo ThinkPad.

Very Bad Heatsink on Aspire 7750g,
cheap build quality with very bad thermal design
wich can lead to overheat easily in a room of 30C Ambient temp,
good example of bad heatsink with litle space wich brings hot air from half heatsink
due to being an inclined heatsink:

Since this this is a doomed product made to overheat easily
here is some mods on it to acess external cooling of coolermaster storm sf19:

Theres also cheap thermal paste inside wich acer loves to use on their laptops,
and so far the worst thermal design for such hardware.
Acer calling it a gaming laptop is a true joke that everyone should know seriously...

You couldn't pay me to take anything from Acer. The first Acer Aspire One netbook lasted 14 months, two months out of warrany. The second one lasted four months. Both had problems with key bounce. Even though the second one was still under warranty when it took a dump, I was so disgusted with Acer by then I binned the stupid thing. I replaced it with an Asus netbook and it lasted two years. It was going strong but the wires going to the screen were going bad and I didn't feel it was worth the money to fix; I was ready for an upgrade anyway. I replaced it with a Lenovo G570.

I got an Acer desktop not long after getting the first netbook and it has been a piece of s...junk. When it runs, it runs fair (it has an occasional compatibility issue with some software and hardware), but it has gone through two harddrives and both memory sticks. The Acer mouse was worthless (too flimsy; I kept palm clicking it). The Acer keyboard was awkward and a bit tempermental. The mouse and keyboard that came with my previous desktop, a seven year old Gateway ('tis a pity they merged with "eeek-machine" and closed their stores), worked much better. I can't add a second HDD to it, even though there is room for it, because the PSU is marginal.
