Summary: Purchased this Laptop recently. Very light, Very Fast, and one of favorite purchases here on Amazon. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate and it works like a charm. The only thing about this laptop is it doesnt have a cd/dvd. But i bought a ultra slim USB-CD/DVD for $40, which still kept it at a VERY reasonable price. Battery life is about 6-8 hours... which is very convenient for long trips. Definitely a recommendation on my part.
Fast fast fast! Crystal clear screen. Best keyboard ever! So lightweight too!

Summary: What can I say about this computer? It's great! I love the small size and the full size chiclet keyboard. And the battery lasts all day! I have never seen a laptop battery last so long and I have owned many laptops. The performance is great too. I don't know if it is just Windows 7 or what, but it really flies through tasks. I frequently edit photos, stream video, remote desktop, etc and this computer has not missed a beat.
Summary: This laptop was perfect for my time while I was studying abroad and backpacking throughout Europe. The laptop was so light and thin, even lighter than a lot of netbooks I saw other travelers had. I had no trouble carrying this laptop in my backpack for 3 summer months. I used this laptop in hostels, coffee shops and trains with no problem. Plus the screen was a perfect size; not too big and not too small; great for word processing or casual video watching.
Summary: Pros: -Great price -Very long battery life (not 8 hours though...more like 7) -Very light and thin -Very comfortable keyboard -Decent sized screen -Doesn't heat up much (even after a couple of hours of playing warcraft 3) -Pretty fast for its size -Looks good -Resistant material Cons: -No Bluetooth -Keys are kind of fingerprint friendly Its a great laptop. I would definitely recommend buying it if you need a portable but efficient and comfortable computer.
Summary: I have used and worked on hundreds of laptops. This is one of the top 5 laptops I've used. It is very elegant and well designed. Very light, thin, sturdy and great battery life (as advertised). Battery life depends also on how you use the laptop, brightness settings on the LCD is a big factor. It has is a full size keyboard. Gorgeous screen. The botton on the mousepad to disable accidental touching while typing is a nice touch.
Summary: Nice light weight powerful laptop. Easy set up and no problems so far. I am replacing my Dell D420 which has kind of died after 3 years use. I found others also complaining about it because of slow disk that once loaded slows to a crawl all of a sudden. I am definately 'there' and a bit annoyed with Dell over this situation. Recely bought Acer desktop Quad and it is super so natually bought their laptop and very pleased with everything about it so far.
Summary: This is a fantastic little machine that will blow you away when you see it in person. Pros: 1. Extremely thin and light 2. No optical drive (to me, this is a pro, others not) 3. Easy to use, quiet keyboard 4. Amazing battery life 5. 4GB DDR3 RAM and expandable to 8GB 6. Windows 7 7. Minimal bloatware 8. Strong wifi reception (also, wifi-n) 9. HDMI Out 10. Nice touch pad with multi gesture and multi touch Cons: 1. No bluetooth 2. Keyboard can feel a little 'plastic-y' 3.
Summary: I have owned this laptop for about a month and I absolutely love it. It is my first laptop (secondary PC) and love that it is light and very compact. The battery life is great too - lasting anywhere from 6 - 7 hours which is impressive. The machine stays cool, just very slight warmth on the bottom but not bad at all. I do not use it for gaming but for normal web browsing, email and occasional youtube videos, and find the processer's speed to be more than sufficient.
Summary: I use this computer for presentations while teaching my students, utilizing iTunes and linking it with my iTouch, watching downloaded movies, online videos, email, and social networking. I have not played games with it, but I plan on trying it when I buy an external DVD player. This is a quality machine. The display is much better than the Toshiba that I bought 2 years ago. Also, I was concerned that this computer did not have a 2 core dual processor like my Toshiba.
Pros: Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet
