Summary: It worked fine for the past 3 months, until it suddenly stopped working. I have absolutely no clue why it doesn't reboot, as it's completely out of my technical reach to know, in fact, what happened. I've done NO changes nor did I ever opened it. I use it exclusively for working-related subjects. I'm incredibly disappointed at Acer.
The new laptop seems OK and I like it and from the start seemed to work much ...

Summary: The first laptop had four keys which didn't work so the laptop was returned and replaced very quickly. I have not had any emails to say the returned laptop has been received so I am hopeful that I will not be charged twice! The new laptop seems OK and I like it and from the start seemed to work much better although it is identical.
Summary: As of the time of writing Amazon's info probably undersells this. It's a 4th gen i5 4200 processor with win 8.1 installed. Not too much bloatware and elegantly thin. Not a touch screen, but who really needs that in a laptop? Pro's: Feels solid in the main, lovely form factor, plenty of storage, adequate RAM Cons: Heavier than I expected, slower start up than I expected, touchpad feels a bit flimsy - if anything fails this is it. Overall: Glad I bought it.
Summary: It turned out to be a very good purchase for its money. I was a bit uneasy before buying it, because of negative comments in earlier reviews concerning the quality of its screen. Having watched several films, in addition to long-hour daily use for professional work, I found out there was nothing wrong with it. For the time being (I have had it less than a month) it works perfectly. A lightweight laptop with 1 T HDD and 6 GB RAM is hard to find at this price.
Good value for money, but the screen has very poor viewing angles

Summary: I bought one of these for a friend and set it up. It's good value for the money (and note that the price fluctuates wildly), but the screen is pretty awful. I work in IT, I'm using a variety of a laptops, and I wouldn't want to use this for any amount of time: although it's quite sharp and bright, the viewing angles are terrible.
