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.
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. Love windows 7 os and the price for what you get is very fair. The only complaint would be the weight!
Summary: I've had no problems out of this computer so far! The Radeon Graphics are excellent and I from what I've read this computer is an excellent gaming machine! I also have A HP Laptop but I prefer using this one more! The screen is the perfect size because I like big Gigantic Screens...LOL! It's very clear with a beautiful picture and I would say that the battery life is fairly decent. I would sure recommend this computer!
Good but i dont know what the quad core is optimized for over fast i3 or i5

Summary: This is light weight but at the expense of durability. Room for two hard drives which is a deal breaker for me, i have one SSD for boot and one for data. Windows 7 experience index are all above 6, with cpu being 6.8, but this cpu is not designed for graphic intense applications, it scored really low on cinebench 11.5. So in the end, i dont know what application the quad core amd will take advantage, but it is quad core and it is light and the glossy screen is good.
Summary: I wanted a windows 7, 17 inch laptop and due to procrastination missed buying an Acer with intel chip. I couldn't find a Windows 7 machine until I came across this deal. Wasn't too turned off by the ADM chip set as my last laptop was an ADM. Ordered the machine and it arrived in three days......quicker than promised. I have been using it for over two weeks now and am extremely pleased. It is fast.................boot time is 37 seconds, flat!
Summary: My wife is going back to college and needed a laptop to handle graphic art editing. I figured she would need at least a quad core CPU and a higher end GPU to efficiently run the necessary programs. I bought her this refurb after reading the specs and positive user reviews. My research indicated that I couldn't touch another quad core unit for this price. This laptop has exceeded my expectations..
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. I opted for the refurb version.
