I use this laptop for word processing, internet, and view 2D CAD drawings. In addition I also use to play simple games. This laptop marketed about three years ago. So….. may already be outdated for today.
So for now this….. where Windows 7 is being widely used, you must download the appropriate driver. Version of Windows Vista drivers can still be used but I think it would be better to use accordingly. This laptop can still be used successfully even though using The Seven.
I download every driver from Service & Support Acer driver website.
