Love this laptop ..but

  • Summary: In the first 3 weeks I would have gave this a 5 star review. One major issue is the power button ..on the front. I accidentally turn the computer off 3 to 4 times a day. I primarily use it on my lap in my recliner. When I pick it up I accidentally hit the button it is hard to avoid because of its placement. Not only is it on the front but on the portion that angles down so it rubbing on my pants also turns the computer off.

  • Summary: Overall the laptop was ok, but being a refurb it had quite a few cosmetic scratches. However, the killer was the touch track pad with the hidden mouse buttons underneath. These button are so clunky and unresponsive it simply ruins the whole user experience. If you plan to use a mouse with the laptop that it fine and it will probably be ok, but if you don't be warned.

  • Summary: Touchscreen was hit or miss especially around the top and sides. Touch pad super sensitive at times. Battery was not what I expected 3-4 hours on power save. No Help from walmart when I emailed them over a week ago.

Nice but buggy touch-screen

  • Summary: Out of the box it seemed like most everything I looked for; it worked well. But after a while the touch screen became intermittent, it worked then wouldn't respond to touch at all. Later it would work again. Acer support didn't seem to understand that this was an intermittent problem and told me to check settings and then ultimately asked me to refresh the operating system. The untrusted touch-screen is a deal breaker for me. Other than that it was a great ultrabook.
