Summary: I do a lot of programming so I needed a decent keyboard for rapid and extended typing. The one on this laptop is pretty good - not super, but plenty adequate. I just got done returning a laptop from a different brand because the keyboard was so cheap as to be unusable, so in comparison I would say it's great!
Pros: Slim and sturdy, with a nice and responsive screen. This is my second Acer in a row now, and I'm not at all disappointed. Especially given the value.
Cons: Um, the black metallic surface shows dust and junk really easily, which makes me want to clean it a lot. Not really a con; I probably should clean my laptop more.
Summary: fast and cool haswell processor....... plenty of RAM....... awesome graphics card........ awesome 15.6" multitouch display........ great battery life...... cool light & slim design.......... It's a great laptop. If you want a laptop that has ultrabook specs and can game moderately, this is an ideal choice. The only downside I could see was that the keys are a bit too flat (just a millimeter above the surface)......isn't much of an issue though..
Light weight and perfect for travel. It has Windows 7, too.

Summary: Perfect size for travelling, and it has Windows 7 too. Windows 7 was a big reason I bought this little computer. No CD player however, so I have to struggle with a different (Windows 8) machine when I need to do anything that requires a CD. But most of the time this little Acer is all I need, and I am so glad I found it. The price was excellent, too.
Summary: I use this computer for mostly gaming and some graphic design in my off time. I really love the graphics on the computer, and with 8gb of RAM, I don't have any problems running multiple applications at once. It has been reliable and fast since I purchased it. The only problem I've had was connecting to Wifi. Once connected it's fine, but it sometimes takes a few tries to get connected.
Pros: Excellent speed, good graphics, can run just about any game. Reliable.
Exactly the right size for a truly portable computer.

Summary: Exactly the right size, big enough to see the screen (my older Acer was only a 7" screen, too small) yet small and light to traqnsport. And windows 7 works like a charm. I hope it lasts for years, as my old Acer did!
Summary: It is fast, it starts up quickly, there have been comments in some reviews about battery life but it is not an issue for me. I got it for travel and it has really served that purpose well. I had to get used to Windows 8 but after a little familiarization it works fine. I have no complaints at this point. I am not a gamer so cannot comment on that aspect of computer performance.
Summary: I am using this small, inexpensive laptop to run everything from Microsoft Office to the music composition application, Finale, and this computer has far exceeded my expectations. I did add 4G of memory which made a noticeable difference in performance. The battery performance is outstanding. And while the touchpad works fine, I prefer to use a Bluetooth mouse when at my desk. It's just more efficient.
