Summary: I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 15.6" laptop to replace my HP from 5 years ago. I had never tried an Acer before so I was a little nervous. Needless to say, I absolutely love my new Acer laptop! When my girl friend needed a new laptop, I recommended an Acer since she needed a backlit keyboard.
Summary: I purchased this for my son as a "going to college" present. This item was not new so I was a bit skeptical. We were pleasantly surprised! The laptop arrived very, very, quickly. We didn't even choose express shipping and it arrived two days after we ordered:).
Summary: Bought it for a friend and she does love it. The laptop is slim as advertised. However, note that it does not have any ethernet cable port, which means you can only connect to the internet through wifi.

Summary: You get many features for the money, but the keyboard is terrible. It's very inaccurate compared with my HP ultra book and a 14" toshiba we just got for our son in college. Also the backlighting on the keyboard is not consistently lit, so it just looks cheap. It went right back.
Summary: I've owned this laptop now for about six weeks, and I'm not having any issues. Windows 8 and a touchscreen laptop have been a bit of a learning curve for me, but I'm getting along fine. I would recommend it.
