Summary: This is definitely an upgrade to my old chunky laptop, and the touch screen feature is fun (and actually quite reliable). I'm not a huge fan of the touch mousepad -- I've learnt not really to use it to "click" as the mouse will often jump when I do so.. but rather select by tapping or double tapping. This can get annoying when trying to select something small, or when you want to click and drag to highlight.
Summary: I received this laptop in good condition with a slight dent on the front but outside of that it's in good condition being that it's refurbished. I do sometimes have to re-boot it when the circles don't appear but outside of that I'm happy with the unit. I wish I could revise this review and bring it down to 3 stars instead of 4 since I've returned this unit for a third generation one since the re-boots sometimes took up to 4 plus error messages like this computer needs...
M5-581T-6490 Is Rated Best Buy in Laptops by Consumer Reports. It isn't.
29 November 2012
Summary: The Acer Aspire Timeline Ultrabook M5-581T-6490 is rated a best buy by Consumer Reports and it is far from being a best buy when the computer has problems with it as reported by other consumers who have had problems with this model. I suggest buying an Asus with as much hard drive and RAM capacity you can afford as an Asus will have less problems because it is put together better than the other laptop type computers because Asus makes most of the components for other...
Summary: I have had this computer a little over a month now, and I have had a problem with one of the drivers causing it to blue screen. At first this only happened when it came out of deep sleep, but it has happened other times as well. I know I need to update the drivers, but to be honest, I don't want to do that until I have made the 4 back up DVDs required to back Windows up and I know I'm being a bit lazy. It also has problems coming out of deep sleep.
Summary: Nice sleek metallic case.Good quality keyboard. Excellent Graphics. Kind of slow but I can live with that. All the ports are on the back edge so you have to turn the terminal around to plug something in. One USB port was not operable, but Amazon took care of a replacement immediately.
Summary: I want to express that I'm not a computer expert - just a casual user looking for a sturdy, good performing laptop that's portable. The TimelineU gave me everything I wanted and I'm so happy I bought it. There are a few small things that could have been different or better. Appearance: When I ordered this, the laptop turned out to be brushed nickle, not black as advertised, but I actually don't mind it. The color, or perhaps the material, does get dirty easily.
Summary: I bought my laptop 2 weeks ago so far I've returned 2 of them the first one the battery was DOA and the second the touchpad has stopped working. Working with amazon they've replaced both of the faulty laptops. I still like the look and features of the laptop just wish they're weren't so many bugs.
Summary: ... aber auch nicht top. Das Ultrabook an sich läuft wunderbar. An Windows 8 gewöhnt man sich auch mit der Zeit und mit Touchscreen ist es auch gut zu bedienen. Ab und an allerdings hatte ich ein Problem mit dem Touchpad. Dies ging ab und an nicht mehr und ein Neustart war nötig. Zwar wirkt das Touchpad mit nur einer Fläche sehr elegant aber rechte und linke Maustaste sind manchmal kaum zu definieren und ab und an ging gar nichts...
