Useful as an everyday computer

Wennie, Amazon
4 July 2014
  • Summary: I have had this for a little over a year, and it still works nicely and fast.

A really nice computer.

Soren DK, Amazon

  • 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.

  • Summary: Perfect laptop for my needs. Arrived on time and works wonderfully well . Just one downside is the acer supplied bluetooth mouse which seems to have a mind of its own. Often I have to reset its drivers for it to work properly.

Got it running Ubuntu but it involved some hassle

  • Summary: LINUX This laptop comes with the dual mSATA SSDs in a fake RAID 1 configuration. Meaning it isn't really a RAID--it just looks like one from Windows' perspective (in fact, all of Windows was stored on just the first SSD).

Very good!

canonizer, Amazon
21 November 2012
  • Summary: Other than being a touch loud and "only" have 3-4 hours of battery life (at very power hungry settings), I love this laptop. I just wanted something light and reliable. An apple with these 'specs' would have been roughly $1800. Hope to remain this happy.

The most portable and fast ultrabook ever.

Patrick K., Amazon
15 October 2012
  • Summary: This is possibly one of the fastest laptops I have ever used in my life. With its usage of Solid State Drive and an Intel Core i7 Processor, its turning on time and shutting down time is blazing fast.
