Summary: The Acer is a slick looking machine, but for whatever reason it is "jumpy'" By this I mean that I will be typing along and suddenly all that I have typed is erased. To compensate for this problem, when I write anything, I tend to do so as an E-Doc so I can use the "Mail Waiting to be Sent" option to capture each and every paragraph as I write it. I am not an accomplished computer person, but I have never experienced such a problem on the other computres I have owned.
Summary: Nice laptop except for the broken spacebar!!!! I has everything I needed except the spacebar is malfunctioning. The spacebar doesn't work unless you hit it hard and right it the center. Very annoying!!! Makes it hard to do any Word documentation.
Pros: It stayed connected to the router long enough for me to write this review
Cons: This laptop continuously drops the connection to my router. My old laptop, my wife's laptop, and the wifi DVD player never has a problem. This one drops the connection every 15 min or so on average and I have to reconnect most times, then sometimes it reconnects itself.
Summary: This laptop came to me via Acer without the Operating System, Windows 8, being installed on the laptop. This of course, makes the laptop unusable. Customer support was rude, and I had to end up speaking to corporate customer service in order to get the Os disc's shipped in a timely manner. I expect them on Tuesday. The laptops itself looks nice, and seems very sturdy, yet thin and light in weight.
Summary: Highly displeased. I thought Newegg tested these products before they were shipped.
Pros: It is beautifully built solid laptop, with great specs for the price. Bought it for the Graphics card and I7 processor, but have no idea if it works. Great screen, with good clarity.
Cons: i received this laptop without Windows 8 installed, and am having to wait a week to get the disc sent. It actually does not have any OS at all. This laptop was obviously not inspected by anyone at any point. Given that, I'm not certain it will work even after I install the OS. After a battle with Acer customer service, I am receiving the discs overnight.
Summary: I got a defective one with dead pixels and had to return. Acer customer service was useless but Amazon took it back no questions asked and with a smile. Bravo Amazon customer service. The screen was too dull even at max brightness. This is due to the matte screen which does eliminate glare so if glare is a really big deal for you, then this might the one. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend it. Just isn't a pleasant viewing experience.
Pros: The laptop was very fast. It started up quickly and played games with no lag issues at highest settings
Cons: The biggest con I had was that during gameplay the screen would go black forcing me to alt-tab out and then back in, sometimes it would freeze altogether and I would have to force-close. Acer tech support speaks off of cue cards and were not much help, and the upper level support people are extremely rude. I RMA'd the first one I received and Newegg discovered a defect and sent me a new one. However, the second one had the same issue and I was forced to RMA for a refu...
