Summary: Battery worked perfectly for 2 years and had great life until one day I started getting message that battery is not charging. Internet is full of this issue and suggested solutions, none of which worked. Have no idea how it will be solved and if an expensive new battery will solve this issue. What a waste.
Pros: Great looks, slim, Typical acer top notch performance except the battery
Good portable laptop with good battery life, but not the strongest build.

Excerpt: Good compact laptop that is light and easy to carry. Haven't experienced any significant problems with its functionality, running Windows 7 and all the hardware has worked fine for the last year and a half of ownership. Aesthetically attractive and smooth track pad that's good to the touch. Given it's size and slight frame, however, I suspect it's not particularly hardy.
Summary: Overall very satisfied with this laptop, good quality and with good price~ Although it came with a bit delayed on the delivery and I never got the bag for it as the seller promised, but can't take away the love I have this Acer Babe~
Summary: Really like this laptop and we had a very happy two months together until suddenly out of the blue it suffered a fatal Hard Drive malfunction. IT specialists have diagnosed and it is not to do with software or OS but a hardware problem. I bought this laptop to go to University but as soon as term properly started - when I actually needed it for work - it won't even start up! This is totally unacceptable. I hope that it should be sorted under warranty... We shall see.
Summary: Got this laptop for my daughter for university. Boots up in 20 seconds. Nice mouse pad. Clear screen but other comments ref screen angle needing to be adjusted and reflections are correct. Light weight and well built with nice keyboard. Battery life yet to be proven but is looking good. If you want a 14" screen, light weight laptop with a good battery life, this is the machine for you.

Summary: This is a good machine with enough power to do run MS Office and manage photos without any problems. It's extremely quiet and doesn't seem to heat up at all however its only been a month since I've been using it. Its also very portable and quite light compared to my previous laptops.
Summary: I bougt this laptop a few days ago but i had to to take it back and get a refund. I previously owned Samsung Q45 which had it about 3 years before its retired on me. But Acer was no where near that despite intels i3 and windows 7. player didnt play properly there was a quick jumps while watching also graphics were not like HD to me. It might be ok for some but after samsung I decided to go back to a samsung Q330.
