  • Summary: It's a deal if it comes without anything wrong with it.
  • Pros: Good Value for the specs, especially on sale.
  • Cons: Arrived with faulty Backspace key that gets stuck down every other push. I'm having to send it off for warranty repair right now so I'll be without it for another 3 weeks...

Good laptop for the price.

  • Summary: This laptop is a great deal for the money. This dual core Intel Core i5 4210u has good performance. it's as about as fast as my 4 year old Intel Core i7 840QM that has 4 cores! Amazing how far cpu technology has gotten in just 4 years when a dual core can perform as well as a quad core just a few generations old.
  • Pros: Intel Core i5 processor. 500gb HD. 6 Cell Battery. Good battery life. Light weight.
  • Cons: Not easy to upgrade. Must disassemble the laptop to access the HD, RAM, Battery and CPU. No Disc drive.

Nice price for Core i5 CPU laptop

  • Summary: Increasing RAM and swapping out HD with SSD will make this budget laptop run much, much faster than other budget laptops with less robust CPU.
  • Pros: $350 for Intel Core i5 processor laptop is a great deal. Battery life is very good and WIFI is stable. HD4400 intregrated GPU is much improved over previous Intel graphics processor - will handle most all non-gaming graphics with ease. Has all the requisite ports -HDMI, USB 3.0, LAN. Decent LCD screen.
  • Cons: No CD/DVD drive, very hard to upgrade the HD and RAM - have to practically strip down to the motherboard to get at the RAM. Wonky touchpad.

Decent Laptop

  • Summary: I like Acer, but if they don't work, return them. If they work, keep them. I guess their support is what sucks.
  • Pros: Low cost Good Processor Light Feels Nice It works pretty well
  • Cons: Touchpad gets stuck and there is nothing you can do about it. There is some issue with Windows 8.1 and touchpad. Only way you can resolve the issue is by downgrading to Windows 8. If you want to spend your money and easte couple of days going after fixing this, it might be your laptop.

Can't beat specs for the price

Anonymous, Newegg
11 October 2014
  • Summary: This computer is great for web browsing, office, multimedia, HD video streaming, light gaming, programming, and is highly compatible with linux (I installed ubuntu 14.04 and everything works out of the box, no additional drivers to install). People complain about the 4GB ram but honestly unused ram is wasted ram, and I use around 1-2GB during normal usage in either windows or linux so I'm not sure what these people are complaining about.
  • Pros: Very affordable for the specs, nice keyboard, no clunky cd/dvd drive, removable battery, hdmi connection, great linux compatibility, and above all a great processor (and consequently great battery life)
  • Cons: Trackpad could be a bit smoother and feels a little clunky at times, but it's not that bad.

  • Summary: This is a very nice computer for the price. It is fast and reliable. Very easy to use. Multitasking is easy because you can run several programs at the same time. Well worth the money.

  • Summary: Do not buy Acer....
  • Pros: Thin, Good price
  • Cons: I think BIOS Problem. After mine was black out in 3 weeks from the Newegg, I have been surfing websites. Many Acer Buyers has the same problem. They wrote that even the Acer knew it, it did not fix the problem.
