Summary: I have had this laptop for a few weeks now and so far I am impressed (I will update if that changes). The only negatives to this notebook are the single speaker (which isn't really to big of a deal for me since I use headphones), it gets really hot while playing games (which is fixed with a cooling pad) and the mouse pad is annoying to use.
Summary: I really love my new Acer. Firstly, the battery really lasts long. I don't really have to bring my power adapter when I went to class or doing my assignments. I don't find it hard to type using the keyboard. It is slightly different from my previous Acer Aspire. It has a very good specs. Intel iCore 3. I don't have any problem with computer crash. I got this at 579.99 which is a pretty good price and it offers you good specs.
Summary: I bought this laptop so I could take it to LAN parties instead of hauling around my desktop computer. The Geforce 540M falls at the upper end of midrange laptop graphics cards, and I am able to play all the fairly modern games I tried on high detail at the display's native 1366x768 resolution with a butter smooth framerate - Blur, Split Second, Call Of Duty 4, Call Of Duty World At War, Far Cry 2, Unreal Tournament 3, Battlefield 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2, etc.
Summary: This is a great machine for the price. I'm using it as a desktop replacement with an external monitor, keyboard and mouse. The Intel i3 processor with 4G of memory and a NIVIDIA 1G graphics card provide great performance. It takes up very little space on my desk and is absolutely quiet. And when we travel it can be unhooked from the monitor, keyboard and mouse and taken on the road.
Summary: I have now owned this laptop for about 3 weeks. It is an excellent choice. I originally ordered a 13" acer, that was delayed, so I changed to this one. I am glad, the screen is the perfect size. It is lightweight, and has an incredible battery. I get over 5 hours when running Hulu watching video's on it.
Summary: So this is my first review ever of any item and thought i'd share how this product has been serving me. I was shopping around for a laptop and I finally settled on this brand and model. The computer is all around good. The battery runs around 2-3 hours on medium brightness with wifi on. Cons: I can only think of the speakers, which is Mono, and no Bluetooth also the screen is reflective so it that is definately a problem if you are outdoors.
Summary: I've been looking for a replacement laptop for a while now for general home use. I wanted something that was portable, had good battery life, and had good all-around performance. Something that would multitask well while running office productivity apps, the web, and some light photo editing apps. I looked at a ton of laptops, both online and in person.
