Summary: 30+ year computer professional. I've owned dozens of laptops and was certified to repair numerous brands and models of the years. I am typically quite relentless with respect to working through technical issues, BIOS-level and OS-level issues. I will rate this particular Acer model as a catastrophe. It is absolute junk on a stick. Here is why: Trackpad: Its got bad juju. Its a Alps model; prone to radio interference and touch mis-reads. Cursor jumps all over the place.
Summary: Had this laptop for two weeks, bought it from walmart. After the two weeks the only program I put on it was bitdefender antivirus and system mechanic, shortly after it crashed. Rebooted everything and removed all the non oem clutter, which is mostly useless stuff anyway. The ram seemed to cut in half by itself and the hard drive cut its speed in half.
