Nice looking, strong battery life; touchpad ruins the experience.

D. Contos, Amazon
5 November 2013
  • 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. However, a faulty touchpad was a deal-breaker for me; I do a lot of typing on the road and using a mouse isn't always feasible. Further, I feel I shouldn't have to purchase a mouse in order to easily type.

acer aspire windows 8

John Doe, Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: Truly disappointed with overall behavior. May be usual Windows 8,incompetence. Poor WiFi and erratic Windows 8 behaviour. May be Windows 8 does not handle the hardware well . Would return if I could but I guess will have to spend days sorting something that I should not need to. May change to Windows 7. Next laptop will be non Windows.

NOT USER FRIENDLY

Chuck "Loyal Fan", Amazon
31 October 2013
  • Summary: the system froze on me,had to go back to acer to put it right,now the key board is very erratic,F2-F8-F12 do not work, battery is only giving me 4hrs. whereas it should last for 8hrs. Overall the layout of this particular model is totally NOT USER FRIENDLY, It is going back to Acer for the second time to put things right. It COST ME £714 not happy with the situation at all. I have pointed out the issues to Acer but to no avail.

Terrible laptop, slow and buggy

mats olsson, Amazon
21 October 2013
  • Summary: Update Nov 15 2013: Changed rating from one star to two. See comment below. Original review: When I bought this it had Windows 7 pre-installed. I tested it for about an hour, and except for a buzzing noise it seemed to work okay, albeit slow. I then "upgraded" to windows 8 and since then the laptop has been just terrible. - When I close the lid to put it into sleep mode it restarts. - Sound has disappeared twice, but come back after re-installing the driver.

  • Summary: Bought this laptop as an upgrade from windows vista. Laptop never shuts down properly and in the end you have to press the powerr button to turn off, very slow even with upgraded 10mb ram and dedicated ssd. Very disappointed.

Acer 581 PTG

Amazondotcodotuk, Amazon
5 December 2012
  • Summary: Although I am a member of Amazon Prime scheme, the item didn't arrive on the next working day. Touchscreen is responsive enough but not sharp, bright and crisp enough. Keys are good and easy to type. Touchpad seems to work fine for me. HOWEVER: When I turned the ultrabook upside down to check I realized that one of the screws was missing and a few of them had scratches on them!

laptop looks great but can't use it...

Mjones, Amazon
22 November 2012
  • Summary: Just received this today and began to set-up windows 8. As I was trying to get my account sorted I realised some of the keys had to be pressed multiple times before they registered, this quickly devolved into some keys (The A, 1, Tab and caps lock keys) not working at all. I have had many laptops and never had a hardware fault straight out of the package like this before, very disappointed with a fault like this going unnoticed.

  • Excerpt: Это ноут второй, у первого был брак с тачпадом..
  • Pros: Достаточно тонкий, держит достаточное время заряд батареи (хватает на 160 минут просмотра фильмов), включается достаточно быстро.. секунд за 15-20 до полной загрузки.. в игры не играю, при работе в фотошопе особо не греется.. Клавиатура не прогибается.
  • Cons: Через год умерла клавиатура, замена в сервисном центре 3000р. ... дороговато, менял сам. Клавиатура на радио рынке 600р. На экране появилось светлое пятно (засвет), не лечится.. гарантия не распространяется.. Биос урезаный.. нельзя отключить раздражающий писк при отключении питания. Устанавливая стороннюю винду лишаешься некоторых фич, например зарядка без включения. ПО идет с установленной виндой, придется искать по интернету, но всего найти не получилось. Стандартна...
