Summary: This is a handy, convenient little laptop. The touchscreen is nice with tWindows 8. Don't expect this to be a workhorse laptop, though, because it does only have a 1gHz processor, which makes running numerous programs sluggish. Great for travel and meeting those basic needs!
Great computer with the exception of the mouse pad
26 December 2014
Summary: I have had a number of Acer "netbook style" computers they have worked well and are still working fine, I would recommend this computer with the exception of the mouse pad as I describe below My only complaint about this computer is the mouse pad, the mouse buttons and mouse pad are the same thing...
the screen doesn't look perfect due the combination of Windows 8

Summary: The arrow keys are really tinny - also, the screen doesn't look perfect due the combination of Windows 8.1 and "low" resolution, looks like you need more room on web browser, emails and so on, but, nothing that you can't get used to.
Summary: Pros: Decent clock and RAM for a budget laptop. Has HDMI and VGA ports built in (no dongles). Cons: Battery life is short by present standards. It comes shipped with a virus pre-installed (Windows 8). 4 stars instead of 5 strictly for the battery life.
Excerpt: This computer really comes loaded with about everything you could want--unless you're a hard-core gamer! The only drawbacks are lack of a cd/dvd optical drive and the inability to remove the battery without opening up the machine.
