Summary: I have had this for a little over a year, and it still works nicely and fast. Pros: - It runs Ubuntu nicely, though the disk is partitioned strangely (granted this was the first time I attempted changing operating systems) - It's so thin and light that other laptops feel like bricks - Load and...

Summary: This was my first time purchasing an ultra book with a solid state drive, I have owned this product for over a year and I am extremely happy with its performance. I specifically selected this older model because it came with twice the hard drive size compared to its newer model and also Windows 7...
Summary: Awesome machine and does what I need brilliantly (Office work and HD movies). Fast, slim, stylish, good quality and light weight. Delivery wise, The item was delivered two days EARLIER than stated which is excellent.
Summary: I had a cheap 11.6 inch plastic Acer for 3 years. It worked very well and lasted. I had Acer s5 for half year and paint peals off. This should be really embarrassing for Acer. Screen is cheap and grainy. Otherwise, laptop does its job, boots fast, good battery life.
Summary: This notebook is sooo annoying. The touch pad seems to have a mind of its own. It works OK for a few minutes after start-up, but quickly becomes "cranky" & jumpy. It is very annoying to work with for very long.
Summary: I got a bargain on this computer (not on Amazon though) but at first I was a bit worried with all the mediocre reviews it had recieved online. It turned out that I had nothing to worry about and again it proves that the internet experts are not always experts.
AC adaptor died after 4 months. Acer service SUCKED!

Summary: Positive points: The laptop worked well, was light, and fast. And the negatives: - Even as a brand new laptop, it would sometimes refuse to turn on (motherboard problem?). Not what you expect of a new laptop. - The AC adaptor died after 4 months of use. But this is not the worst part!
Summary: The product say it was refurbished, but as good as new, so I bought it, but I received it with the following labels: - One saying "SELL AS DEFECTIVE" [...] - Another saying "Defective, unit won't boot up" [...] I tried turning it on and it didn't.
Summary: Have had this for just over a year and the touchpad and keyboard have gone wacky. I contacted Acer and as it is now out of warranty would be a minimum $250.00 charge. I called a local computer repair place who basically said to try to get my with using a mouse as it was not worth the cost to repair.
