Decent laptop, light weight, but it's seems like it has some issues after 3 years of use
30 October 2013
Summary: If I reviewed this earlier I probably would have given it 4 stars. After 3 years of use there is a green line that shows up in the middle of the screen. I've read forums online that this seems to happen with other Acer products. Probably won't be buying another Acer after this laptop.
Summary: The computer worked fine while under warranty. However, after 1.5 years the motherboard gave out on it and it will no longer power up. Replacing the motherboard is a $400 adventure....time for a new computer. You can bet it will not be a Acer.
Summary: After 20 years of buying computer and computer products this is hands down the worse and most loathsome experience. I purchased the Acer Aspire TimelineX after several weeks of research for the best laptop in the $600-800 price range. When it arrived I thought I had found the perfect computer.
Summary: wouldnt recommend especially with the huge price tag.
Pros: decent battery life
Cons: really slow laggy, cant even handle minecraft ! when your playing a small game if you hold down 2 letters you cant use the trackpad for some reason, keyboard gets dirty because of the huge gap, fan is constantly going even though firefox is the only thing open, burns my leg after 10 minutes of it...
Summary: I wish I could give ZERO star to Acer. I bought this PC in March 2011. After a few months, I had to send the computer to Acer four times for repairs. The problem has always been the same: system freezes on startup, and often while using the computer....
