Summary: Don't leave it on your car roof and then drive off. Apparently this can damage the screen (who would have guessed?) HDMI to the TV screen yielded pretty good results overall though, so I guess everything worked out okay.
Pros: Running well, once it has been upgraded, this little laptop is economic and not over-powered. We use this computer for video games on moderate settings, or streaming and watching video.
Cons: As-is, it is not a very compelling computer. It will need more RAM, and Windows 8 is like a bad dream. Also it's been out of stock for years.
Summary: acer's products suck acer's rma service sucks acer sucks
Pros: no pros
Cons: Sadly enough, as soon as I got this computer, harddrive started to fail and eventually after 3 months, it decided to kill itself. I know it's really late that I'm writing this review, but if... IF anyone's reading this comment at this time somehow, I strongly I MEAN STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU that yo...
Summary: The only things I don't like about this computer have to do with thin plastics used on the body. No complaints about any of the hardware.
Pros: I am leaving this review after roughly a year and a half of ownership. This computer has pretty good specs for the price (at the time I purchased it). I will rate the build quality as average. The way I look at it: with some Acer products you get a pretty fast machine at the expense of build qual...
Cons: The screen is thin and slick but it is pretty flimsy. The righ/left click button is actually one button and feels very cheap. It would be nice to have two separate buttons for right/left clicks. The clear covering on the sticker with the computer specs started to peel after about a year of usage....
Pros: Overall it has been okay aside from the cons listed. However the cons, in my opinion, out way the pros.
Cons: First the speakers are junk. Others have raved about them but mine can barely be heard in a quiet room. Second the battery has been lose from day one. It may be nit picky but it is bothersome to me. The final, and huge, con, the plug for the ac adapter broke. As it was still under warranty I made...
Wish there was a Windows 7 option but a decent laptop
19 October 2014
Summary: I just wish Laptops had a windows 7 option at least until windows 9 comes out. Microsoft is notorious for every other operating system being horrible. 98 good, ME horrible, xp good, vista horrible, windows 7 good, and windows 8 horrible. Windows 9 should be manageable according to their history.
Durable, OK CPU, but keyboard and touchpad are awkward, lack product support online
13 October 2014
Summary: The overall construction is durable, and the hardware is stable. 6-cell battery can last a long time. Although the keyboard keys are large, the arrow keys are squeezed in a tight spot, with added dollar sign and Euro sign (which are not often used).
Summary: The laptop worked great for the wife from 12/2013 until 8/2014 Then one day it acted as if it hadn't booted up, just a black screen no beeps etc.,but I hear drive noises. After a few reboots it came on and worked for almost another week. Then I started the troubleshooting. loaded new bios.
