Summary: I agree with all the 1 star reviewers. I'm having the same issues such as losing connection randomly and really slow at most times. I also get not responding for a lot of the browsers and multitasking is just painful.
Terrible computer that is beyond frustrating to use

Summary: Terrible computer that is beyond frustrating to use. My 10 year old Acer actually performs better than this computer. The internet quits randomly, even though other household computers and devices are perfectly fine.
Summary: I got this laptop a year and a half ago. It has been terrible for the past 6 months, which is a shame because it wasn't cheap. The keyboard has been failing. The down key doesn't work at all, and the Fn key is on it's way out (which is a special nightmare, because often num lock gets randomly stuck...
Summary: I hate this computer. It's been nothing but trouble. All the drivers have broken so I can't use the mouse, video, or any kind of sound. I took it in a couple times to be fixed and they said it can't be fixed. $550 later, I am without a computer.
Summary: Not sure if it is the computer or windows 8, but it crashes all the time. Was working on it about an hour ago and it just quit all together and now it will not start again at all. Off to geek sqaud again!!
Pros: The computer did start up and I was loving the backlit keyboard. One minute later, the screen dimmed and the battery light started to flash. 30 seconds later I lost the power. I'm getting a replacement sent. I'll update review when I receive it.
Summary: I am a computer professional with a lot of years of experience, I have bought many many computers both for work and for my own use. I have never had such a piece of low quality, below par computer as this one.
Summary: It's possibly the worst product from one of the worst company on the market. This is the second acer laptop that I purchased and I regret both purchases. I should have learned from my first mistake not to try an Acer product again.
