Summary: If you want a new laptop, you want quality, so you don't have to replace it right away. Acer is quality. I did a lot of comparing between brands and within brands. It had to be available through Amazon because, if there was a problem, their customer service is great. This one came 2 day shipping and it was a breeze to set up. Resolution is awesome and sound is better than I expected.
Summary: This is where I purchased my hard drive caddy. http://www.acerparts.ca/products-hard_drive_trays-aspire-v3-771g.html
Pros: The power of a desktop in a laptop. lots of ram, two hard drive bays. plays games really awesome, arkham city, dead space2, battlefield 3 and many more. usb 3.0, hdmi. Warranty department covered power pak without a problem at all.
Cons: Its a little heavy. does not come with second hard drive caddy. The power pack went bad very quick but acer sent a replacement with hardly any questions.
