Great little laptop - portable when I need to lug around for on call on weekends

Summary: I have to have a laptop with me always, if call comes in from work even nights and weekends. So when going out to dinner I just grab this little Aspire to stick in the car in case its needed. Fits well in my briefcase for airline trips as well.
Summary: I've had this laptop for over 1.5 years. The motherboard died 2 days before warranty ran out, ACER fixed it in about 2 weeks at no cost. I'm sure it would have been quite expensive if it died out of warranty. I did three upgrades: 8GB of RAM, 128GB SSD, and 5GHz capable 802.11n wifi card.
Summary: Just today the power adapter failed after 4 years of use. The machine still working perfect, and still very much on the current models specification. I am using also an 6 years old Acer laptop, other model, with a great success with no failures. Acer is still one of the reliable brands.
Summary: This is a fantastic machine. Fast, small, lots of memory, light weight, great resolution and all around handles all my needs. I use it for MS office, Photoshop, AutoCad, even Revit. The best part, is it fits in my shoulder bag and weight almost nothing...
Summary: I've been using this laptop for 5 years now and had very few problems with it. The size is perfect for travel. At home I connect it to my KVM switch so I can use my large monitor, keyboard and mouse, which I'm using as I write this review.
Summary: The machine is in working condition but two of the USB ports are physically damaged and therefor unusable. This should not happen with a NEW piece of equipment. I found out from the sender that the machine does not have any warranty, which is also strange for a NEW machine.
Summary: I chose this laptop for its ultra-portable-like specifics and its almost-netbook-like price, as I need a travel companion for working in mobility on Office applications and web developement. After one year of usage I can say that this Acer is amazing!
Summary: This is one sweet little ultra compact laptop. Dropped in a SSD and it boots fully into windows in under 20 seconds. The size and weight are perfect for one handing it where ever you need to go.
Summary: Got this for about a week now, as a college student, the light weight at 3 lbs (lighter than my lightest text book) is great along with some good processing power. Did some hd video editing that really pushed the cpu to its limits, but didn't over heat or crashed as my previous machine.
