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. Handles multiple tasks at once nicely. The screen is awesome, though have yet to see any dead pixels (just hope I don't jinx it) and with 3 usb ports, it meets all my everyday needs.
Summary: I'm moving up from an Acer Aspire One that I've been using for a couple of years. I like the bigger screen, extra power, Bluetooth and HDMI. The form factor is nice as it's thin and flat. Here are some issues I'm having with this product that I didn't have with my old netbook: My biggest annoyance is that when I suspend and then resume on this laptop, the WiFi is turned off.
Summary: So, I got this to be a portable music performance laptop. The basic qualities I needed were: reasonably powerful (in terms of processor speed and available memory), long battery life, portable, and useable keyboard. It succeeds in all those areas. The 8hrs battery life advertised is a bit of a stretch; I imagine it's possible if you reduced the screen brightness to a minimum, disabled wifi, etc. and basically did nothing.
Summary: This Ultra-laptop which it what they are calling 11.6 these days is a major step in the right direction. It's fast, it does not heat up hardly at all compared to the ASUS 1501n and generally runs well. Howver, the reason for only 3 stars is due to the use of an ALPS touchpad - ACER has to have their heads up their ... to use this touchpad.
Screens are all bad!!! But awsome power and hi-tech for its size

Summary: Im having a hard time reviewing this hi-tech POS. Pros: Very fast intel core I7 cool CPU (lap never gets hot) LED back lit screen looks amazing! Super compact for the power it produces Hdmi, sd slot, 3 USB, and lots of connections Battery life is awsome around 5 hours average very slim and quiet Cons: All these LCD screens have at least 1 bad pixel with a black back ground especially during win7 start up No SSD Touch pad could be better The plastic case feels like it...
