By far best deal for this level of tech on the web at the time!

Summary: I've had this puter for a couple months now and it's terrific: fast, boots fast, works well, hasn't freaked out, the optical drive is good (BluRay, what?) and the wifi has better range than earlier Acers. This is B/G/N. The screen is really quite good and the keyboard is not bad. The greatly enhanced touchpad is cool, but I still prefer mouses. The onboard sound is interesting, and not like other notebooks. HDMI output! Watch BluRay on your real fullrez HDTV!
Summary: Bought this for my 15 yr old daughter and she is very happy with it. No complaints of any sort and I might have given it a five star rating...except it must survive the test of time. I expect any laptop to last at least 3 years without service, so we'll see! I have a friend who services laptops and he recommended an Acer for good reliability at a good price.
Summary: Laptop worked perfectly and I had no problems with it and overal was VERY happy with my purchase. Then 2 months after recieving the laptop my screen crapped out and is unusable. I have contacted acer via their online repair form and am still waiting on a responce. I have heard from others that I WILL have to pay to ship the product back to acer.
Summary: My computer is my best friend. I am one of those people that live on the computer. I do EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING on my computer. I was using an HP Notebook that I got back in February 2007 and paid about $1900 (before software). This machine is so much more powerful and so much less expensive. I've had no problems whatsoever with this computer. It came out of the box, plug and play! Its really pretty, sleek and black. Its very slim and sexy looking.
Summary: Amazon continues to impress. Doing a search via Google, the next 'lowest' price on this laptop is $750.00. Oddly, that made me feel better when considering Amazon's low price, because...you get what you pay for. I received the package on time, as usual for Amazon. The speakers on this laptop are the best I've ever had on any laptop. The screen is crystal clear, and the glare is minimal for me.
A nice, large laptop that can hold its own against other competitors.

Summary: What a treat, when I first received this I was a bit skeptical in how well the laptop would run. However, I was in for a surprise when I set everything up and gave it a try. That means deleting useless programs that come with the computer and putting in ones from the previous desktop. (the desktop would never have a chance with this thing) The monitor is just enormous, which if you like big laptops you'll love this.
Summary: A core i7 laptop for $1200 dollars. need i say more. Sadly 3 days before i pulled the trigger this laptop was on sale for $999. sometimes its best not to hesitate. The laptop itself works great, despite some mismanagement on my part (not virus scannin or defraging periodically) the laptop has worked exactly as i hoped it would. It is a desktop substitute until I can build my dream pc.
Summary: More of a desktop than a laptop but the 17.3 inch LCD screen is remarkable, contrast, crisp, sharp and a great screen to watch movies or play video games. Everything is laid out where you would expect it on a laptop including a numeric keypad. The I7 intel processor with 4 GB Ram is hard to slow down it just keeps processing no matter what you throw at it. In all a very attractive package, good price and reliability.
Summary: Produit présentant un bon rapport qualité/prix (550€) pour une utilisation normale, à savoir pour des personnes avec un niveau en informatique dit "normal". Les + : Bonne qualité du son et de l'image. Capacité disque dur et mémoire vive très correcte. Esthétiquement sympa, bon design Clavier avec pavé numérique, touches noires et plates, bonne ergonomie Rapide: processeur Intel Core i3, i5 ou i7 selon les modèles Les - : Ecran brillant: qualité dégradée si le PC est...
Pros: Ecran 17'', HD + LED LCD, esthétique, capacité mémoire, son et image, clavier
Summary: Ich besitze diesen Laptop nun schon einige Monate und bin immer noch sehr gut mit ihm zufrieden. Meine Kriterien beim damaligen Kauf - Aktuelle Technik (vor allem Prozessor) - Grafikkarte für aktuelle Spiele - qualitativ hochwertige Tastatur - Lange Akkulaufzeit Verpackung und Lieferumfang Die Verpackung des Laptops wirkte sehr gut und der Laptop war gut gepolstert in seinem "Gefängnis".
Pros: Leistung top, gute Tastatur, lange Akkulaufzeit
Cons: Kein LightScribe, mäßige Verarbeitung an der Unterseite, kein HDMI 1 . 4a
