This computer has been the best computer purchase I've ever made

Summary: This computer has been the best computer purchase I've ever made. I wanted something to replace my desktop that was mobile, reliable, fast and powerful. I wanted a computer that could let me work on 20 or 30 different work/college related things at a time with no slow downs.
Summary: So far I love it. Couldn't make the leap to a tablet because I do plenty of word-processing, but didn't need much in the way of size and speed, like a high-end business laptop or gaming machine. I wanted portability without it being to small to be comfortable.
Touch screen very responsive and even the low res screen looks fairly good when set against higher res display

Summary: Have used heavily for a year, every manner of surfing and streaming video, regularly outputting video to external HDMI display, even light video-editing and gaming (Alien Isolation at medium settings most recently), this has been a rock-solid performer surprising me at every turn.
Summary: Best laptop I've had to date, currently using it for school as I'm study for a bachelor's in Computer Science and the laptop has yet to let me down, having used it for a year now, it still hold ups and keyboard is still great even after endless java coding.
Very good value for money running Windows and Linux

Summary: The Acer M5-583P gives very good value for money. The case is slim, good looking and sturdy. The specifications and performance are very adequate. With its competitive price the touch screen and illuminated keyboard are bonuses that work very well. It also runs Linux perfectly.
Summary: I would buy this lap top again and would recommend it to friends. Acer has a winner here.
Pros: I bought this computer on a recommendation of an IT friend. I was looking for a new laptop for school and this fell with my price range. I really was not wanting a touch screen but for the price, I said why not. It did come with windows 8 but with the touch screen, I'm getting used to it. The lap...
Cons: The only negative I can say about it is the screen has a gloss surface so that combined with the touch screen equals lots of finger prints. The screen cleans very easy though so this is not a big deal to me.
