Summary: Well I've had this laptop for about a year. In general it's not a bad laptop. Approx 6 weeks ago the mouse cursor started to jump around when I type. The cursor jumps any time it want's to. Sometime it jump's back a few word's, at other times it will winin the middle of the last paragraphd up.
Summary: I bought this laptop to replace my Dell with XP. As other reviewers have said, the sound is really bad. Other than that it's okay. I knew that it wouldn't be great but it was all I could afford at this time. It certainly isn't a Dell.
Summary: When purchasing this, price wasn't the guiding issue however the price did factor into my decision. The mouse pad seems to sensitive, even though I know how to adjust it. The screen is bright and the sound is better than any computer I have owned before.
Summary: I used a temporary 10.5" Toshiba for two years for all my office work. This new 15.6 keyboard is lovely and large and I find the computer is oh so fast. But, the keyboard has a mind of its own. I have checked keyboard shortcuts and other possible reasons for its actions.
Summary: Received it in a timely manner. I love the color, no finger prints. I like the cd insert. However there's a few things I don't like. A lot of junk to delete ,still not sure if I've gotten it all. It, being new, freezes up already. Have to wait a while until it decides to continue.
Appears to be a good machine but can't tell due to lack of parts support

Summary: Overall I believe this a good machine. There is a problem that is keeping me from making the recovery disks. For over 3 weeks Acer has been unable to have the disks made because the software for this machine is so new.
Summary: I bought this laptop as a dedicated work use machine. It's light, easily movable, and is pretty much all around ok. But I HATE THIS MOUSE. With the same glassy surface as the rest of the hand rest area and very little texture it gets easily sticky just from the oil on your hands.
Summary: con's: Not Windows 8 certified. Mouse pad erratic until turning off the feature that controls whether a tap on pad is a mouse left click. Sound control app crashes all the time. It hangs on shutdown sometimes where you have to hold the power button to force shutdown. No bundled apps.
Fast, but sometimes too fast wth the touch pad. Comes with thal lousy Windows 8.

Summary: I wanted a PC for everyday business use and video editing. It's ok. Cons: - Comes with Windows 8 which is one big headache to use. It is not intuitive. 8 seems geared for touch screen PCs of which this is not. Acer should give you the option of going with Windows 7. Curses to Microsoft.
