Summary: I HAVE BEEN USING MY LAPTOP OVER A YEAR NOW AND I AM VERY HAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE. I WATCH MOVIES ON IT ALL THE TIME. IT IS LITTLE ON A HEAVY SIDE SO I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND AS SOMETHING YOU NEED TO CARRY EVERYDAY.
Summary: This laptop is amazing. My primary concern was portability followed by gaming, as I am an engineering student who is always on the move. First Comment: Straight out of the box this laptop can handle all games that are currently available on either high to medium-high settings, and this is due to the dedicated graphics card on this puppy. Also, a major plus is that I can run all my programs for school (i.e. solidworks, autocad, etc) without any lag whatsoever.
Summary: The laptop arrived on schedule and upon opening it and using it for the past couple weeks I have had no problem. In regards to people commenting on the screen being hard to angle right, I think it is just fine. The battery life is fantastic, runs quietly, starts up quickly, even quicker when you get rid of some of the bloat ware. I love this laptop. I would recommend it to anyone.
Summary: This was a christmas gift for me last december, and I waited this long before I decided to write a review so I can give a concise and accurate report of my experience with it. I love it. I play high graphics game and this does not disappoint. The processor keeps up well with World of Warcraft games, and it even plays Diablo III pretty well, for the price of this laptop, I highly recommend it. It is light too, and easy to bring with anywhere.
Summary: I wanted a tough, fast laptop with great sound. Hubby is a truck driver and I have killed several laptops. I love, love, love the finish. No fingerprints. Wipes clean; inside and out. No scratches, after 3 months. I was worried about the hinges, based upon an earlier Acer. Screen has great resistance and stays put, even on the bumpiest roads. Boots up quickly. Not bogged down with garbage software, as I recall. Okay, that's usually my first thing, so I deleted bloatware.
Summary: Both my friend and I bought these from the Microsoft Store (one in Arizona one in Virginia) during the 2011 end of the year sale. My motherboard died within 1 month of use. My friends died after 3 months. Neither of us put the machine through any strenuous activities. I am not sure if its a factory defect or if Microsoft did something to mess things up. Good thing is that you get a 1 year Acer warranty that pays for shipping and repair costs (takes about 10 days).
Summary: Bought this computer in November 2011- 70 days later computer will not turn on. Covered by warranty however you must mail computer to Texas to be repaired. Received "repaired" computer back however it still did not work. For the love of GOD do not purchase anything from Acer. Terrible customer service and product. Save yourself time and worry by looking at another manufacturer.
Summary: As I rarely review, the awesome-ness of this laptop inspired me to actually do one. Pros: -Battery life (6 hours give or take) While watching tv shows connected to wifi, word docs opened, and multiple tabs running in firefox. This is a big pro for a college student like me since finding a plug in school is like trying to finding parking in manhattan, virtually impossible unless you wake up extra early and never leave your spot.
Summary: My wife and I bought this laptop for a Family Christmas present. Bad choice. It lasted a little over a month before I had to send it back to Acer for repair. One day it just did not power up? Hit the button and nothing happened at all. I will be waiting another month to get it back from the Acer repair Center in Texas which is inconvenient since we were using it for various PC Games Like Skyrim and Sim's. I would not recommend this laptop to anyone.
