Summary: After six months the battery died and I discovered that it is wired into the computer and could only be replaced by sending the computer back to the Acer repair center AT MY EXPENSE. Before I realized that the battery was the problem, I had ordered a new adapter from them.
Summary: I rated this 4 starts instead of 5 because (1) although it supposedly has a 20GB SSD, I don't see the SSD on the explorer list of drives, and (2) I've had it lock up on Mozilla Firefox a couple of times - although that may be Firefox and not the computer.
Nice looking, strong battery life; touchpad ruins the experience.

Summary: Windows 7 and long battery life were important to me. I think the laptop looks nice too, despite the all plastic construction. The body's combination of dark matt and gloss will likely collect finger prints over time, though it does sleek.
Summary: As the in stock options for laptops shipping with Windows 7 continue to dwindle, this laptop shines among the best. I know Acer is a fairly new brand, but the components in it are top notch for the price. If you need a reliable laptop for work or home purposes, this laptop is absolutely for you.
Summary: All the outputs are on the back. Awkward. When you tip it forward to plug something in, the damn power button on the FRONT turns the laptop off. Brilliant. And, good luck finding the power button. The DVD is also hard to find. Other than that, it works fine.
Summary: After doing a lot of research online (Windows 7 vs. Windows 8), I decided to only buy a computer that has Windows 7 Home Premium on it. And Acer is a great brand to purchase, since I've had an Acer computer in the past. The only thing I suggest to anyone is add an additional 8 GB of RAM to it.
Summary: I bought one of these refurbished PC's and recommended one to my brother, who also bought one. I didn't get a chance to do anything with the one I purchased right away, but when I did, all was good for about a week, when I got a blue screen with a message that indicated the hard drive had issues.
Summary: 1st off let me say this is my 1st windows 7 computer with more then 2 cores. One day in and I'm very impressed. I don't use my computer for much other then watching HD anime (which it handles flawlessly) and making amv's. So I can't say as of yet how the gaming is for this pc.
