Beware

rodbolt100, Amazon
28 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought this for my daughter. It is very very slow. It would freeze constantly. I contacted Acer about it ,they said it had a virus. I did not think it had a virus. It was only conected to the internet 1 time and that was to update and set up her account. My daughter does not have internet service. I bought it so she could use it for school. It would not even run Microsoft Word. I sent it back and Amazon refunded my money.

Sorry I bought it

Sarah Crawley, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: I'm not sure if it's an issue with this actual laptop or the Windows 8 that it came installed with, but this laptop is much slower than the much older Acer Netbook with Windows XP that I thought I was upgrading from. I usually like Acer Netbooks, but I don't think I'll buy another one after this, it takes so long to do anything that I only use it as a last resort. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

Wowful

mp, Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: I don't know if there was something actually wrong with the netbook I received because the performance was absolutely dire to the point of being unusable. Even basic browsing on this laptop was a mammoth task. Forget about watching 1080p or 720p for that matter videos on youtube. They stutter and die. Even after installing chrome the browsing experience was unacceptably slow and laggy. My 4 year old asus laptop was still much faster!

Catastrophically slow

Peter O'Connell, Amazon
4 June 2013
  • Summary: This computer is agonisingly slow. It is very slow to boot up, it is very slow to respond to basic commands such as opening a browser. I don’t normally write reviews, and particularly not negative ones, but this computer falls so far below my basic expectations that a warning to others is appropriate. I bought this as a present for someone who just wanted a portable computer to do basic internet browsing quickly while out and about.

Second return with exactly the same fault

M.H. Goldsack, Amazon
6 May 2013
  • Summary: I'm now returning the second netbook that has just failed with EXACTLY the same fault as the first one i.e. After displaying the "Acer" logo, the screen blacks out and goes no further with the startup routine. The first one lasted 28 days (thankfully just within Amazon's time limit for a return) the second one has lasted 12 days before failing with the same error. This time I'm getting a refund to buy a different make!

Too slow and keeps freezing

Deborah King, Amazon
27 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this for my son to do his homework and because he enjoys playing Club Penguin. It is terribly slow switching and loading the new app based Windows 8 and he is unable to play Club Penguin because it keeps freezing or the characters simply don't respond. Would welcome any suggestions as to how I can improve performance???
