Summary: When I first got this laptop, I LOVED it. It's pretty to look at and has very nice specs for the price. However, about 6 months after I bought the laptop, I noticed that it was starting to overheat very badly. The heat coming from my laptop, whenever I would watch a movie or try to play a game, was so hot that the back of the laptop became a heatpad -- it was scalding to the touch, just blowing tons of heat out of it.
Summary: Buying this Laptop will be a very expensive mistake, that you will regret one crash after another! Smooth sailing for a few months but then it shuts down regularly. Just try to watch a movie on it, open one too many windows at once, giving a presentation? taking an online exam for your class? Your pc gaming days are over! I could count on this thing to shut down exactly when I needed it the most.
Summary: this laptop is terrible the keys are horrible to type on and often stick, i have looked after it yet it still become very hot this leads it to overheating and about once every 2 months this becomes to much for the hard drive and making it dump all memory, this you can recover and is very tedious, the processor is very old my dad told me it was in my sisters old laptop from 2007 and then it crashed and had to get acer to get a new harddrive so i lost work that i had been...
Summary: After having 6 chargers all burned out and now the screen burned out my daughter and I are very dissapointed with Acer. Service is awful All the other family members have Dell laptops and that is how it will stay. I cannot recommend Acer to anyone.
Summary: As others have said, I was drawn to this product because of a combination of good specs, glowing reviews and the price tag. The adage of if it sounds too good to be true it probably is comes to mind. I've had it for about 10 months and the computer is awfully slow, despite a huge memory and hardly anything being loaded on to it.
Summary: I bought this computer in January for my son on his birthday, it has crashed 4 times and has been restored o factory settings 9 times, yet it still does it,it has been sent to acer twice and all they say is restore it back to factory settings, DO NOT ACER! They can't make computers and the computers that they make are $h!t, especially this model!
Awful - black screen after second use16 hours. AVOID

Summary: I looked at the reviews online for this one before buying - especially important as we are currently working in Spain so we wanted to get the right laptop with minimum hassle. Certainly it all looked great, at a very good price. Got the laptop on the Thursday. Looked lovely and shiny in box. Immediate problem with playing DVDs in that Windows Media Player would not play sound from the DVD player, but got round that using the Acer built in entertainment suite.
Summary: This has got to be one of the worst laptops I've ever used, the keyboard is dreadful, the touchpad is far too big which means one of your other fingers is usually resting on it interferring with the correct operation of the primary finger, the battery life is laughable, and the sound is far too quiet at full volume. All in all a big zero out of ten, forced to give it one star by the amazon review process. Would like to give it minus five stars.
