Summary: This is a awesome laptop! Love the touchscreen. Updated it to Windows 8.1. Not a big fan of all of the Acer bloatware, though, so have deleted most of it. Only problem I have is with the microphone. When using Skype my voice sounds like a robot to my contact. Have updated all of the drivers, so don't really know why this is happening.
Summary: Laptop arrived in excellent condition despite being refurbished. The laptop is thin, the battery really does last about 6-7 hours of usage (web, word processing and videos) and the touchscreen and touchpad work great. The keyboard is nicely laid out, and the back-lit keyboard works well in low-light conditions. Nice to have a optical drive on a Ultrabook-style laptop. Very happy with the purchase, and I will be ordering Acer products in the future!
Summary: Color me impressed. The only thing that is noticeable about quality is screen resolution, which is standard at this price point. Everything else is a bonus. I recommend this all inclusive laptop if you like a bit of everything with your computing experience. Size, speed, build quaity, inclusion of a DVD drive, touchscreen, solid state and HD hybrid...and so on, it's all here.
