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 have used this for close to a year now. still love it. plays open world games on med settings. around 15 fps. which is workable. this is a perfect computer for anyone who dose not wont to spend 1000.00.
Summary: We needed a "moveable" computer for use at home. This 17" Acer is HUGE; nothing you'd want to carry around regularly, but it's perfect for what we wanted. The display is big, bright and crisp with intense colors. It actually looks better than the Samsung 19" monitor connected to my desktop.
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.
