  • Summary: This is a great laptop, i really do love it. For being new with windows 8, and first touch screen laptop i am 100% satisfied. HOWEVER, i bought this laptop and after a couple days the mouse pad glitched out and stopped working for about 3 minutes, i did not think to much of it because i do use a wireless mouse as well.

but I'm very pleased with this laptop

Naomi, Amazon

  • Summary: I didn't actually buy this from Amazon, but I'm very pleased with this laptop! I actually had an Acer V5 before that was stolen, so I opted to buy another Acer V5 because I had been very happy with the product. Aesthetically, the laptop is very sleek with a smooth finish and the keyboard is very pleasant to use. I wish it was even faster, but considering I keep open 20 tabs on average the computer has pretty good speed.

  • Summary: Great little computer, works fine. It did not come with any manuals or documentation of any kind or a disk if I need to reinstall the OS. Was also disappointed that the power adapter and battery were just flopping around inside. They were not damaged and operate as expected. Oh there was a scratch along the top of the case that went across it (short side/top to bottom) it appears that the cardboard and plastic used to secure it in place may have done the damage as a...

A very good laptop.

Chelle, Amazon
6 July 2014
  • Summary: I really like the computer, but I've had it for a few weeks now and I have discovered some sounds kind of hitch up and get stuck. I've got that issue with all my laptops where the sound will get stuck. so it could just be a laptop thing. Windows 8 is super frustrating. There is no dvd-rom, so you will have to buy an external one. If you are not used to a full keyboard on a laptop that might trip you up also. Other than those issues I like the laptop.

Warning: No Optical Drive

Christensen Financial, Inc., Amazon
16 June 2014
  • Summary: I know after reading the specs on the system there is no listing for an Optical Drive, but the pictures most defiantly show a dvd drive on the right hand side. The computer is still a good deal but it was def a surprise when I went to install some stuff and found there was no drive when I distinctly remember seeming it on the images. Other than that this is a pretty good system. It is fast enough for the price.

Nice system but a basic unit

Farmer, Amazon
29 April 2014
  • Summary: My last system was an Acer Asprire 5720Z, still have it with Windows 7 installed. This system seems a little bland compared to my old one. There are no function lights/indicators on the keyboard like; num lock, caps on etc. System responsive, good performance. Compared to Window 7 there are a lot of audio, video function missing and you need to find software to accomplish what Window 7 provides. The 8.1 start menu is just dumb but it gets you to all your applications.

Just bought it

Teragram531, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • Summary: I just turned it on & went through the registration process. What an improvement over my 2 yr. old HP. The screen is great by comparison. It has the 4th generation Intel processor for the best battery life. It's an i5, not the faster i7, but that's just fine for my needs. I like the touch pad, which has a separate button bar - MUCH better than those that have the buttons indistinguishable from the rest of the pad. Everything seems to work as expected. It feels solid.

  • Summary: ive had it for a week and this laptop is very fast... i hated windows 8 at first but after removing a bunch of stuff and customizing my start screen im starting to like it!! this has the r7 m265 dedicated graphics and intel 4400 graphics. it runs on the intel 4400 and its nice to have the piece of mind that the r7 is humming in the background just waiting to kick in if needed to keep things running smoothly even if push the computer really hard!touch screen is awsome!!!!
