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...
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.
