Summary: I got this for my son, and we have not been able to resolve a problem with it freezing up. The specs were just what I was looking for, but too good to be true I guess. He tried MANY different things to solve the problem.
Summary: This computer is fantastic. I am able to play games at really good settings with great frame rates, the battery lasts upwards of 8 hours with medium use, and the screen is a gorgeous IPS 1080. I highly recommend this computer as the perfect balance of power and portability.
Summary: Thinking of purchasing an Acer laptop or ultrabook? I did and could not be more sorry. Four months into ownership the battery stopped working and I could not use it without the charger attached. I arranged for repair and sent my laptop to Texas (at my own expense - $24 including insurance).
Summary: This is an amazing laptop for the price, and somehow met each and every one of my requirements. A backlit keyboard, FullHD screen, pretty powerful graphics card. Everything I was looking for as a grad student trying to balance work and pleasure. Pros.
Summary: I got this laptop for about 1000$ on sale from amazon a while back. I bought it for work and light gaming. It is super thin for having a dedicated gpu. The battery is outstanding, it will last a whole shift at work while it is on power saver. The touch screen is perfect.
Summary: Bought this for my son. He needed a good laptop for school papers, research, watching movies and gaming. The key pad is back lit, the picture is crystal clear, the entire thing is nice and sturdy... it is a great laptop. We did return it however because it kept shutting off every time it was moved.
