Can 2 printers (same brand) be connected to the same laptop(Acer)?

As long as you have enough ports for the connection, then yes, you could do that. The printers would just have different names even if they were exactly the same printer brand and model. Not quite sure why you'd want to hook up two to the same laptop, but why not?

Normally people hook up multiple printers in an office environment to allow easier access across the office depending on where an employee is printing from, which is often done via a network rather than directly to a single computer.

Thank u I spend 3 mths of the yr at a US address and would like to leave 1 printer there to use and also use 1 at my other address.I would not be using them simultaneously but would use the same laptop in both locations.Would this be feasible?

Sure; however, depending on how Windows treats it... it might assume it's a new printer each time it connects to that printer. This would just mean you'd have to delete the old printers to clean it up once in awhile. Either way, yes, it'll work.
