Worth the value...
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Odd, but the unit shipped had the exact same specs, but a different model name...TMP645-MG-7653, rather than 7450. Haven't figured out what the difference is.
Pros: Under 3.5 lbs, long lasting battery, dedicated GPU, quiet & keeps cool, 1080p screen, SSD, runs fast w. i7. Comes with Win 7. Runs WoW & less demanding games perfectly fine. Haven't tried latest titles on it. Hard to find a laptop with all those in one package. Usually sacrifice weight, battery l...
Cons: Trackpad isn't great, but I use a mouse often anyway.
