Excerpt: I bought this product from Amazon for $750. The screen is high reolution (1600x900) which is great for watking movies. It has a great keyboard. Performance is zippy and I can run many applications concurrently. A similar laptop with an intel i7 would cost maybe twice as much so it is great value for money. My main gripe is on the preinstalled software. Cannot uninstall a lot of it (winlocker shredder etc) Acer designed it this way!
