Keyboard Issue

Jessica, Amazon
18 July 2014
  • Summary: The laptop arrived in a timely fashion. All seemed well as I began to set it up until I realized that the 'k' key did not function correctly. It would only type if I pressed in the very center of the key with more force than I would use when typing quickly. The key even sounded different from the others when pushed. I googled for this model and keyboard issues and found very quickly that this is not an uncommon problem, so I decided not to get a replacement.

Misleading advertisement in Amazon

Bill Spindler, Amazon
14 June 2014
  • Summary: The advertisement in Amazon clearly stated that this model contained a back-lit keyboard. It was the one thing my wife requested. Alas, it does not.

some good some really bad

TIAN, Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: good: though it's not an ultra book, it's light, much much better than heavy IBM, THINK-PAD AND DELL. NVIDIA GeForce GT720M is okay for using design software like Rhino, Revit, Photoshop... and playing video games. Screen is good CPU is good. bad:windows 8 system is stupid. after downgrading it into windows 7, it will bring some new problems, like the network frequently breaking down, voice card occasionally not working.

Extremely slow

  • Excerpt: My previous 3 yr old Acer finally bit the dust. Decided to get the new Acer but it was much slower than the old model and returned it. Research indicates that other users report the same problem.

too slow for its own good

Pacman, Staples
17 December 2013
  • Excerpt: It seems like a well built laptop. Weight and size good, colors excellent, but for Windows 8 it needs a faster processor. Otherwise a good value an if you don't care about speed, then by all means this is a good buy. Acer products even without the so well known name are sturdy, good looking. Again the company should consider adding a little to the price and include a more powerful processor.
  • Pros: Bright, Professional Weight, Sharp Tones & Colors

An overall good laptop with a horrible touchpad

Zack Alawi, Amazon
5 December 2013
  • Summary: Love the speed, power, screen, the sound, the keyboard. Don't like the placement of the touchpad. It is set too far to the left and I am right handed so I often activate the Windows 8 side menu. Don't like the connection juncture between the ac adapter and notebook. It's kinda thin and feels flimsy so you have slow down and careful thread it in. I had to return the laptop because the touchpad was driving me crazy.
