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. The sender told me to use the extra warranty which I had purchased (Square Trade). They obviously don't stand behind their product, which is a shame, and I will never order from them again.
Summary: Laptop is nice and decent. Only hope that you do not need any support. Then you wish you did not buy this. The laptop comes with a lot of crapware pre-loaded and you have to spend a lot of time cleaning it up. Another bad thing is that the wifi radio keeps getting powered off every time you standby/resume. Acer support website takes you thru many steps to select your make model then tells you how to read acrobat pdf documents.
