Summary: I purchased this computer just based on the reviews I read having never owned an Acer before. For the money this computer can't be beat. I only wish i had waited a few more months to get the newest version out.
Summary: I have little to add except that I agree with most of the positive reviews. The battery life is generally closer to 5.5 hours, but that is still great compared to most other 15.6 inch computers in this price range.
Summary: This is a great laptop with nice options at a low price. I like the design, the low weight, and the long battery life very much. Although I have not seen 8 hours of battery life, the 5 to 6 hours I get are still world-class.
Summary: I had three different laptops in my shopping cart and had to dwindle it down to one. I did research on all three computers and the Acer had the best reviews. It cost a little more but I am so pleased with my decision. I love this computer and would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
Summary: First of all, this thing is thinner and lighter than I had expected. I run Photoshop, Illustrator, a web browser with multiple tabs open, Norton 360 running in the background, and play Guild Wars all at the same time. This thing still performs even without an add-on graphics card and extra RAM.
