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.

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

disappointing

Wondering why i bought it, Staples
11 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I really don't know how good or bad the computer itself is, I haven't been able to do much with it yet since it is so difficult to use and there seems to be no help file. It took over a half hour to set up. That is where there is nothing for you to do or know, just type a few keys once in a while. It gave no indication of progress or even that it was doing anything at all. I have never heard of MS Office not being pre-loaded and ready to activate on a new computer.
  • Pros: Thin
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Hard To Use, Has Windows 8, Office Not Loaded

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.
