1. Perfect for carrying around campus
Promising review: The Acer Aspire 5 is a great laptop. Lightweight, fast and great cost. I use mine for email, Microsoft Powerpoint, Excel, Word etc. Checking emails, paying bills. Great for everyday use. I am very pleased with my purchase. I received this laptop 5/12/20 and it has lived up to its description! Great buy.
2. Sit back comfortably
Promising review: I love the slim look it has. The keys are very responsive. The mouse is fast and fits in my hand perfectly. ... I think I'll be buying more of these in the future. It's fast enough for gaming too. I really like it.
3. You've got to have it all
Promising review: I hesitated about purchasing this printer because I didn't know how well it would work. The refill bottles are much cheaper than the print cartridges and the look and flow of the ink seems to be the same as what I have seen from previous color printers. The graphics are vivid and the text is clear to read and not blotchy. I highly recommend this printer!
4. Great resolution for your video calls
Promising review: This web cam is very nice the high FOV is meant more for conference rooms and whatnot to show multiple people at once. I just zoom in a bit and still is good quality for conference calls working from home. If you can't get a c92X then this is a good compromise.
5. Protect your wrist
Promising review: I absolutely love my keyboard cushion set. I have a bad habit of resting my elbows on my metal desk top which causes a lot [of] pain. Now I do not have to worry about that anymore thanks to this product. Thick and well made. I think it will last me a long time.
6. Upgrade your PC
Promising review: This computer is exactly what I was looking for. I love the design and I have been extremely pleased with how the system operates.
7. High-quality sound from a trusted brand
Promising review: As a sound sensitive person, these are a sanity saver. They keep out the sound of my neighbor playing music and my husband snoring. The battery life is good. Honestly, being overstimulated by outside noise was the biggest source of my crankiness, and my life is much better now.
