Summary: This is a great laptop. Our college-bound son got one. We later got one too. We both really like it, although we both wish the battery lasted a little longer. That is the only down-side to this laptop.
Summary: I bought this machine for my wife. It was the perfect fit for her. I liked the ram and the discreet graphic memory. I got it setup in no time and it worked well, I went to burn my image backup and the DVD burner would not burn DVDs. Contacted Acer support and got an individual that did not know much and told me that unless I had a DVD-RW to test with they would not take the drive back. I talked to him for about 45 minutes and he did not know his business.
Summary: My son started College last year and he needed a computer this semester. I bought this laptop about a month back and he has done wonder with laptop. He's done a couple of programs and is now working on a video game platform and the laptop has not failed yet. Excellent performance and graphics. I'm really surprise how smooth it runs. It affordable and the performance is excellent. Awesome laptop for the price.
Summary: I've been using this laptop for about three weeks now, and I am glad I selected this model. Nice large screen size, good graphics, very fast, and I like the separate number pad on the right. I wasn't familiar with Acer brand but would definitely buy again. Great value imo.
Summary: I ordered this laptop for my father. First, I received it quickly (thanks). Next, I was able to set it up for him with no issues. Finally the weight, performance, design, and features were exactly as presented making it a VERY good deal! I'd highly recommend this to anyone needing a larger screen laptop.
Summary: To be honest, I purchased this machine with the express purpose of wiping the hard drive and installing Ubuntu 13.10 as the main operating system. This machine has proven to be the perfect device for that purpose. All hardware is immediately recognized and configured properly by Ubuntu, making the system a pleasure to install and setup. The large drive and 8GB of RAM along with the Core i5 CPU makes this system fast and responsive.
Summary: Very happy all in all with this laptop. Updated from an older Dell. Biggest issue I have is with the mouse. Seems to have a mind of it's own. Turned off most of the automatic features, but I'm still having issues. Very frustrating... changes screens all by itself, scrolls up and down, while your trying desperately to make it stop. Seriously why do they have to make things so automatic that you can't control them yourself?
