  • Summary: Delivered earlier than predicted but the computer wouldn't boot up because Windows OS was not installed correctly - just like another reviewer stated on this page. I am a long time Acer fan and wanted an Acer; my daughter returned the nonfunctional Acer to Walmart and the sales staff talked her into...

  • Summary: "Junk" Don't buy this! Too many bad issues to mention all of them. The touch screen went out in the first week. (No help from support. Sounded like they were guessing try this, try that) gave up. Sound went the next week. (sounds muffled now) Key pad too sensitive with no adjustments.

  • Summary: Just took delivery of an ACER refurb. What a waste of time. The software was not completely loaded. So now I have a choice of returning for completion or return for credit. Either is a waste of my time. ACER customer no service came across as, too bad...

Don't like the constant streaming of videos on the screen

  • Summary: Cursor gets stuck constantly. Now I can't use it at all because the screen has shrunk everything into miniatures! Don't like the constant streaming of videos on the screen. I'm already way ADD and don't need/want encouragement.

A Lemon Acer Won't Stand Behind

  • Summary: This computer is a piece of junk. After 3 months of very mild use and hundreds of dollars in tech fees, it is still extremely glitchy and turns itself off on its own constantly. Since Acer only expects their product to last 30 days, their return policy lasts just that long.

  • Summary: I ordered this laptop and when I received it, it didn't have Windows installed. I returned it and ordered it again. I figured what were the chances that it would happen again. Well, I was wrong. Again the laptop booted up with an error message saying Windows failed to install.

  • Summary: Hard drive registered as damaged after less than a month of use and no dropping or pulling off the back or anything. The upside is that amazon is not only going to take it back for a full refund but because I can't get it back to them for an additional month after the return window closes because...
