Can't say anything bad
31 May 2013
Summary: When you buy a laptop you look at the specs and it does what it says, so I can't say anything bad about it. The only issues I have are to do with the size.The keyboard is too spread out and the "mouse" is annoying. I keep changing windows and zooming in and out without meaning to.
Summary: This laptop has very good specs (except the screen) - fast CPU, dedicated video, excellent battery lifetime (truly 7-8 hours on low load, 2-3 hours 3D gaming), DVD drive, USB 3.0, big multitouch touchpad. Outfit is very decent - slim, lightweight (for the 15" laptop), nice keyboard. But the lid tends to keep finger smears. The touchpad is foamy and mine was a bit crumpled (yes, sounds weird) - looks untidy. Ergonomics... the worst I've ever seen.
Summary: First machine arrived dead - would not charge or power up. This was returned to Amazon and replaced but I was left with the return cost €48. The laptop is well made and the screen reasonable for the price. It is reasonably fast with good battery life. The pre-installed windows 8 is terrible. This is the worst operating system I have ever encountered and I will never buy another Win 8 PC. Hello Mac from now on. In summary - good budget laptop but terrible OS.
Summary: I got this as a replacement for a different model from Acer that didn't work. My prime criteria was a cheap laptop that could play games to a reasonable degree. I am happy to say the laptop does that and I have been playing Battlefield 3 in medium setting with no problems at all. I don't know how it would perform in higher settings but so far so good. it looks really good.
Summary: First of all, I would like to mention a few things about the Amazon service that I received with this order. I placed an order on a Friday, and paid extra for next day guaranteed Saturday before 1pm delivery. I was hoping this would be true, but the courier didn't arrive until 2pm, which isn't such a big deal because it was a busier Christmas period, but never the less, I paid for guaranteed before 1pm.
Summary: Keys are a little spaced out for my liking (being a developer I spend a fair amount of time typing/using keyboard shortcuts) but its a pretty sound device. I instantly stripped out the good sized hard drive for a decent sized Samsung SSD; and shoved another 4 gig of ram in it. What i failed to notice (as did the memory scanner from corsair) is that the device has a maximum ram of 6 gig due to one module being user-replaceable and the other being soldered to the...

Pros: Buena capacidad de memoria, Buena ejecutividad y exelente navegación .
Excerpt: Ноутбук с слабым ULV процессором. И неплохой видеокартой. Экран посредственный, с глянцевой поверхностью. Сильно бликует, на экране ничего не видно в яркую погоду. О видеокарте: Графика позволяет запускать игры на средних настройках, но как бы не хотелось, производительность ограничена слабым процессором. И еще один минус. Крайне неудобно расположены порты. Не удобно подключать устройства к USB.
Excerpt: Очень понравилась машина из за своего тонкого и легкого корпус плюс к эьому еще этот ноутбук достаточно для меня долго работает что бы не задумываться о поисках розетки, а конфиг системы позволят запускать любые приложения и игры.
