Summary: Legitimate piece of GARBAGE! Do not buy, unless you want a broken computer . It updates EVERY SINGLE TIME I turn it on, its S-L-O-W . And it gets the light black screen of death like every month. So you have to factory reset it every month.
Summary: I wanted this for a home unit, which is good due to the short battery time. This has all the functions I could ever need. Good picture quality. Easy to use. Fast loading. I have only had it a few months, but love it so far.
Decent budget 17" for 2014, shoddy keyboard design

Summary: I purchased a refurbished version of this model about a week ago, and I'm fairly pleased with it so far for a budget laptop. It seems to be Acer's Big Mac as opposed to, say, an Asus filet mignon, but it gets the job done if you're on a budget like I am.
Summary: I bought this laptop refurbed a while back and I have never regretted it. Most bloatware has been removed from a refurb model. I put a good antivirus software and it works soo well. Loads quick, great webcam, plays Sims3 with add-ons very well.
Summary: I've had this computer for... oh I don't know. Sometime early 2012, I'm guessing. So about two years. And it has been absolutely fantastic. I do a lot of maintenance on it, I just like my computer to be as fast as possible. So if you don't, you may not have the same results.
