Summary: Good laptop for business, school, office, vacation, airplane, research, showing off youtube videos to friends, or even the laptop itself is impressive.
Pros: Good graphics for gaming. Although you'd need to download the NVidia Geforce program for it if it doesn't work. Normally if it doesn't work it's because this laptop uses Integrated graphics card and NVidia Geforce. Go to the Nvidia GeForce option and select which program uses this video card. Otherwise, everything else runs in integrated graphics.
Cons: I am a hard core gamer and gaming on this computer is ok however in the long run, it overheats the cpu and shuts down after 10-20 minutes of gaming. Cooling pad is required if you plan on gaming a lot on this laptop.
Summary: If this computer had a built-in light, like Lenovo's think light, it would be perfect. Otherwise, I like the design. It really is a pretty computer. Fast. Runs cool. Speaker sound is excellent. Long battery life. Key placement good too. Yeah, I really like this one.
Summary: Contrary to the Amazon product features description, this particular model does not have bluetooth installed, so keep that in mind if ever bluetooth constitutes an important feature for you. This laptop also has an integrated, non-user replaceable battery, which could be an issue 2 or 3 years from now when the battery dies (following the apple/ultrabook trend). The weight is also a bit heavy for the sleek form factor. Enough of the cons and on to the pros...
Summary: Product is excellent for the price and whilst not a rugged laptop has survived in some harsh conditions. Battery life is excellent and keyboard durable. Product is well featured and can be used on your lap without getting battery singed thighs. A couple of blue screens of death but this was due to incompatible software updates conflicting with windows.
Summary: I have had my laptop for a month now, I am very happy with my choice. This acer has very nice design, looks smaller in real than in the pictures and fits into my handbag (which is great as I don't need to carry it in a separate one) also the price was very good considering similar options by different brands. The 14 inches screen is just a perfect size for university work as I find 13.3 a little too small.
