Worth the value...

Kaylin Y., Newegg
12 July 2015
  • Pros: This is a very good laptop for the time that it was released. It was released well after Windows 8, with Windows 7 on it. It was also somehow able to install Windows 8 when I first bought it, but I didn't want that so I chose not to install it. I think that too much stuff from Windows 8 (namely t...
  • Cons: The microphone that is internal is pretty bad. If you are typing while using it, every time you press a key, your speech is interrupted. It's very frustrating when trying to multi-task. I tried upgrading the RAM, to 8GB. This was successful, but I noticed no REAL difference in the overall perform...

Acer scam with battery expire by date

BASSEM J., Newegg
31 May 2015
  • Summary: The blink orange with no battery charge is due to a programmed chip that keeps a date-time logic for the expiration of this laptop battery. Laptop battery will expire not due to its number of time being charged, rather by the date being programmed internally on a chip.
  • Pros: On March 2014 I bought two of the Acer TravelMate P6 P633-M-6639. I use one, and keep the other unused as a backup inc ase the first one fails. A year and a half past that date, the first laptop stop charging with "blinking orange". The battery was keeping good charge (for a close to six hours), ...
  • Cons: Acer engineer orchestrated a scam: forced a date-time chip to keep an expiration date to the battery of this model. The battery will stop charging regardless of its usage. It looks like to force the consumer to buy a new battery after a year and a half (or 18 months). Quite an interesting predict...

Good laptop with few quirks

Amitabh S., Newegg
4 May 2015
  • Pros: Good screen, good touchpad, thin, lightweight, powerful
  • Cons: Win 7 has a serious flaw. The iastora.sys driver makes the system unstable right out of the box. Need to remove this driver. Win 8 has serious problem too. The synaptics touchpad does not allow disabling charms bar. Win 8 is unusable on this. poor keyboard

Easy to see why its awesome!!

Amitabh S., Newegg
27 February 2015
  • Summary: The single reason I got this is because of the mechanical mouse buttons and the non-click-able touchpad. I really dislike the ones where the entire trackpad goes down or ones without dedicated mechanical mouse buttons.
  • Pros: Disclaimer: I have just ordered. [answering:"Why did you order it"? Core i7, 8 GB, 256 SSD, Full hd, very lightweight, Windows 7 Pro, mechanical mouse buttons and non-click-able touchpad, dedicated graphics.
  • Cons: No major cons: Memory: only 8 GB installed and max 12 GG, would have preferred 16 GB both. No touch screen Keyboard travel is bit less.

Hardaware is Great, would be better with Windows 7

CJ DeMarco, Amazon
4 February 2015
  • Summary: Love everything about this computer--it's thin dimensions, igh speed, light weight, etc. But I thought it would have Windows 7 pro, it came with 8. After using it for few weeks I still prefer 7.

insufficient storage

Debra G., Newegg
29 January 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this Acer computer to replace an older model Acer with the same size HD and was extremely disappointed to find I could not copy the files from the old to the new computer because there was not enough room for half of them!
  • Pros: Light, neat, as fast as expected.
  • Cons: 128 GB SSD storage has only about 40 GB available for the user! After the operating system and the recovery partitions and hidden files, the remaining storage is insufficient.

Great Little Laptop

10 November 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a Lenovo unit that took a hard drop, that used to be my favorite laptop. This 14" Acer has quickly surpassed my expectations with speed running Win 7: super fast boot-up! It is so light, sometime it's hard to tell I packed it into my carrying case.
  • Pros: Light weight and fast.
  • Cons: Haven't found any yet.

I love this laptop

Alan, Amazon
3 November 2014
  • Summary: Finally! I found a laptop that is a good combination of speed, storage capacity, design, battery capacity. The I3 is fast, the 500GB is a lot of space. I plan to use it a while before upgarding the memory from 4GB to 16.
