Summary: In general I am happy with the laptop but there are some issues. The sound is not good. Despite having a Dolby program the sound it is so lame, above comparing to my previous Gateway. Maybe I have not been able to set it in the best way, but I doubt it. I think it is just a problem of the speakers, that are not good. I also had problems at the beginning. The moment I connected it to the internet, the laptop started to get viruses.
Summary: This is my second Acer Aspire from Walmart. I wanted something with a bit more lift in it, so upgraded to this v3. I am not dissappointed. Acer seems to give good value for the money, and my last one is over 4 years old and going strong. I wanted a machine with Windows 7, and this one fit the bill nicely. My only small complaint is that the keyboard is different from the old Aspire.
Summary: I've always been scared about buying laptops, but I wanted something that I could travel with, and this is probably one of the better one's I've found. It's got good power at a decent price, it's compact, not too small to be a strain and not too big to be cumbersome....there's some bloatware, but nothing that can't be removed, getting it set up just the way I liked was quite quick, and I think that as long as it's not abused too badly while I travel, it should last for...
Summary: Bought this computer December 7, 2013 and it worked okay.This computer is average. After 4 months the battery wouldn't hold a charge then shortly after that you could only use the power adapter to run the laptop. We ordered a new battery, charged it up (or so we thought) and now the computer won't boot up/turn on with either a new battery, the old battery or no battery. It is a piece of junk. DO NOT PURCHASE AN ACER. And I thought I was pretty computer savvy.
Very tempting buy but do not be allured, this purchase is a mistake

Summary: I purchased this laptop on about 4/10 and it broke before I had owned it for three months. While I agree that it was an excellent computer for the time it had lasted despite several small issues, it is definitely a machine that isn't worth any money. Keep in mind, it didn't break via a drop or spill.
Summary: Repeatedly "powered off" after 30-35 minutes . Contacted technical support and followed instruction to remove battery, unplug battery charger/power supply from laptop , depress and hold power key for fifteen seconds, then re-install battery and plug in charger . Fix failed to correct problem ! Returned to Walmart store .
Summary: This laptop is faster than my current desktop that I have. It streams video and video games very well. The only problem I had setting it up was that the date was set to 2011 not 2014 and I didn't notice that so I had problems connecting to any internet site. Other than this the setup was easy and I enjoy this laptop a lot.
