My brother has been looking at this laptop Acer Aspire ES1-711 17.3-inch laptop at John Lewis, however there is only one online review and it slates the laptop as being infected with malware and trojans out of the box,to the point it was unusable. Has anyone got one of these laptops and can tell me different as I thought it seems like a bargain at £400, but now Ive been having second thoughts

Forgot to ask If anyone has an Acer Aspire ES1-711 17.3-inch laptop what is the sound like without speakers?

I can't believe it would have malware as such. What it may have is a load of bloatware (unwanted programs) which can be got rid of using the free PCDecrapifire free from Bleepingcomputer.

Thanks, I thought the same as you, never in my limited experience have I heard of a PC being infected out of the box.
