Summary: Got it in a timely manner. Initially booted up. Ran an update and then computer hung on boot after that. No luck with restarting it. Then first Walmart store I went to did not know how to process the return since it was a refurb. They suggested I do it through the mail which is what I was trying to avoid in the first place.
Summary: I've had this Acer for about a month and generally really like it. It's lightweight, very fast, especially booting up. The battery life is awesome. Also buying a refurbished unit, which I've done before, I saved about 30 to 35%. I bought it because my old computer was really old and really sluggish. The only thing I don't like about it is Windows 8, I have no idea why Microsoft made such a difficult operating system but I suppose I'll eventually get used to it.
Great backlit laptop,a pity about the US keyboard!
27 December 2014
Summary: Very good laptop for the price.Bought it mainly for the backlit keyboard,which was great. The two things that bugged me were no optical drive and the U.S. keyboard.The keyboard was my main issue.The @ sign is over the number 2, and the " sign is where the @ sign should be.Yet if you pressed the " button you get the @ and visa versa!I know I could have got used if it,but I felt that this might devalue the price if I was selling it on.
