Summary: I don't like review laptops till I have used them for at least about a year, ding that mark is about now. pros: -great layout -great performance (runs everything I throw at it) -nice screen -so far rather durable, I like to drop things...a lot... cons: -windows 8, I mean do i really need to say anything more about this -weird hickups while playing games, not sure if it is the switching graphics card or a nic card that can't keep up.
Summary: Another right-click button issue. I sent the product back but in order to get a replacement but I now have to pay the new, $35 increased price. If I had time to research another computer I would definitely not buy this one again.
Summary: I bought this computer for college and it's been amazing. I've had it for over a year now and haven't had any significant problems. I can't even begin to list all the pros, and my only complaints are that the battery doesn't last as long anymore (which is to be expected) and it's heavy. But it also has the huge screen so it's also to be expected. Love it!
Summary: I have had two days with this laptop and so far I'm very impressed. The graphics card can handle strain and still keep over 50 frames. Ranges vary in the area of course but so far I have only been impressed by its performance and the two day shipping didn't hurt either.
Summary: Laptop arrived with broken "right-click" trackpad button. After digging a little deeper online I found that this is a common problem with Acer V3 models. I contacted Acer immediately and shipped out the laptop next day for repair. After about 7 days they sent me my shipping info and my "fixed" laptop should arrive in a few days. I'll update the review then once I've had a chance to spend time with the working (hopefully) laptop.
awesome computer, the reason why I choose this one ...
20 September 2014
Summary: awesome computer, the reason why I choose this one is that it has Solid State Disk, and the graphics card 850m has a great performance when play some games, and the ram of this graphics card is DDR5L, which I think is better than GTX 860m with DDR3L ram. All is perfect, but you should buy a portable hard disk (1T or 2T) for this laptop, and it's a little heavy, and the size is too big for most backpacks.
Summary: This laptop is extremely fast! It starts quickly and everything I do on it is fast. It has great specs and a great price. I highly recommend this laptop for anyone who wants a high-end laptop that will do whatever you want it to do with no lag. On a side note: Windows 8 is not so bad wants you start using it. The customizations for Windows 8 are almost limitless, which makes it enjoyable.
and what I wanted it for (light gaming) its been great. All issues ive had

Summary: For the price, and what I wanted it for (light gaming) its been great. All issues ive had, have been because of Windows 8. None of the hardware has had issues. I like the cheaper price, with room to upgrade later (ssd bay, and 4 total ram slots (2 free) ) Screen has never bothered me, and I think it looks great. I use it with keyboard and mouse, never used onboard keys or pad.
Summary: I would recommend buying a different computer. But if you do buy this one definitely buy the protection plan. You will probably need it.
Pros: The computer is very fast. I like the combination of HDD and SSD.
Cons: The first one that was sent to me was dead on arrival. It had some issue booting up, and from day one it would only show me the blue screen of death. The second computer that they sent me lasted about 6 months and then the screen stopped working. The mouse pad is also very shaky and hard to use in my opinion.
