Good to start with

  • Summary: After about three years of using this laptop I have to say I started to really despise it. It crashed every time I'd try to run a powerful program and the dust collection in it was pretty heavy.

  • Summary: It is a good computer but Windows 8 probably works better with a touch screen so I guess windows 7 would have worked better.

  • Summary: I love acer computers- I had just bought a timelinex that died on me after 3 days, so I purchased this one. For an i5, this computer is unfortunately a bit sluggish- enough so that I went to upgrade the ram right away(it's only 4 out of box).

  • Excerpt: This laptop has everything you really need for home use. It has a DVD player and webcam and has quite a good sized hard drive of 500GB. I use this laptop all the time, to do stuff like working and gaming, in fact, I am using it to write this review right now.
