Summary: I'm not an acer fan boy, I honestly don't know what drove me to get this laptop, but I did. Honestly I have to say at first I was really impressed, The screen is gorgeous and it zips along. At first removing all the bloat ware that comes with it was a pain, and then the registry got all screwy so I had to repair that, otherwise it would chug on the OS. The graphics card is a great selling point but not enough to justify the slow processor (Quad-core my butt).
Summary: *WARNING-BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN TRYING TO UPDATE ACER PRODUCTS. YOUR COMPUTER MAY BREAK LIKE MINE DID, AND ACER WILL HOLD YOU RESPONSIBLE* I want to love this computer, but my experience has been soured due to Acer's horrendous support and service. It appears that it is a fairly common problem, especially on Acer laptops, for a BIOS update to fail.
