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...
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...
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.
Hardaware is Great, would be better with Windows 7

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.
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.
