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 my machine because it was compact and I actually liked the keyboard. Now I have had the machine for about 3 months I get really frustrated that the battery lasts about 1 hour as stated in previous reviews. I had a 386 laptop in the '90's that had better battery life. I hope the charge lasts long enough for me to write this 'review'. The price seems to have gone up quite a bit so take my advice and get a machine from a company that knows how to make PC's.
Summary: I a struggling to write a review for this awful machine because thhe keyboard is so very very bad. The battery life is just over 1 hour ! Yes, 1 hour ! And the machine wasn't configured correctly, Acer due to take it back shortly theen I will sell it as quickly as possiblee. If you've ever owned a good laptop then you will know what a pile this laptop is. Dolby 5.1 surround sound too - I ask you !
Summary: Looks, good, has fantastic reviews but the one I bought my daughter for her joint Xmas and Birthday developed a harddrive fault. This was especially hard for her as she has an illness that confines her to the house at the momment. I gave her the task of copying all our home videos to the new laptop and after 3 days of hard work she was rewarded with a PC that will not boot up, so it seems we have lost all videos. Acer are picking up the laptop tomorrow.
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.
