Summary: I game and create Youtube Game play videos as a hobby. Needed a good laptop under $1000 for a vacation and this filled the bill perfectly. This laptop seems to of been created specifically for gamers on a budget. 6Gb of RAM, one of the better mobile i7 Ivy Bridge CPU's, and the new Nvidia GT 730m as the GPU. I highly recommend that you get the GeForce Experience installed.
Summary: I have had this laptop for about 3 weeks and it it's perfect! The screen is great, the speakers are better than the average laptop speakers and the laptop's performance in gaming is AMAZING! I am playing Starcraft II in very high settings and it never lags! I love it!
Summary: I bought this like 3 weeks ago. I've been researched a lot of laptop for several days and found this laptop. I live in U.S. right now, but I used to live in South Korea. Korean know that ACER is very good electronic company. Overall, performances of hardware are really good, but the problem is that this laptop has bad screen resolution.
Summary: Amazing Laptop! It plays Crysis 3, the last Tom Raider, GRID 2, all with high quality textures. I'm using it to play games on my TV with a HDMI cable of 5 meters. Now I just want to buy a Bluetooth stereo headset. Core i7 2.4 processor lightning fast! Please do yourself a favor and replace the hard disk with a SSD, This will make your games start and load very fast, I guess that this laptop are loading games faster than my Playstation 3.
Summary: After using a desktop with Vista, this computer is very fast and reliable. We've had no trouble with it freezing up or getting too hot. My son is a gamer and this computer plays all his games with great graphics and quick response. We are extremely pleased with the performance of the Acer.
Summary: 5 Stars because it functions very well - although to be fair, the laptop is still new. I've played COD 4: Modern Warfare as well as GTA III and they all run perfectly. I'm thinking of putting on more games in the future. Additionally, as soon as I install an office suite, I'll be ready to tackle additional years of college (the number pad is a plus).
Summary: Save for the one or two special keys that were mixed up on the keyboard (easily overlooked as they are few and far between) and my unfortunate first time encounter with the confounded mass of unnecessary options that is Windows 8 (Remedy: Only use the desktop and you're golden), the laptop performs above my expectations and at a fair price.
