Summary: Battery life is really bad since I've received it. The 'O' key was messed up since i first used this. Upon first using, keyboard wouldn't work as well. Loved the idea of laptop but not sure what to think after these issues. If everything was fixed i'm sure it would have been great. the battery life is a necessity. that's the point of this being portable.
Summary: I spent a night to find what I want. Finally, I found this laptop having features matching the price. However, I was shocked when I received it. Despite the manufacturer's description, the keyboard's back light and the DVD were not there!!! as if someone removes the DVD and patches the whole... I returned it since amazon sells it a bit more expensive and the real spec!

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. Kudos to the Amazon partner for any easy return though.
Summary: Acer makes a good computer basically, but windows 8 is terrible no matter what reviews you read! I had to take it to my tech guy to be reloaded with windows 7. That cost me another almost $200. Don't buy windows 8 or 8.1!!!
Summary: The combination of this machine and Windows 8 is too much for me. I am going back to Windows 7 and another computer. Instead of the touchpad having buttons to make a selection or get a menu, you have to hit the touchpad very close to the left or right bottom corner respectively. I don't have any problems with other computers having touchpads, but I do with this one, often having to try over and over to make the selection..
Summary: The item was scratched up on the outside top but more importantly the machine seem to be defective, sometimes opening windows all by itself. Furthermore, it's so slow at times I can see a window opening and have to wait for a command to be done.
Summary: Got this laptop for my girlfriend for school. The point of a laptop is being able to work wireless anywhere that has a wifi connection. Upon opening this from Amazon everything was great and flawless...except the wifi went limited within 3 minutes using YouTube and Netflix. After troubleshooting and bouncing off a dozen forums with people that had similar issues with this product I contacted Acer customer support. We did numerous tests and their answer was "Send it in".
Summary: maybe it was just my luck but it got defective on me twice so had to return, Amazon saved me!! i wouldve cried if I couldnt lol. dont mean to scare anybody it worked awsome when it did, just didnt last! ;( UPDATE,Ive searched and searched and searched for another good laptop for a good price!! and no luck!, thers 2 other acer for 50-60 more and I think im going to reorder this one again!
Excerpt: Брала машинку для учебы в критичное время (сессия)привлекло расположение кнопок(в корпусе, с достаточным расстоянием друг от друга и с подстветкой) и тач без выраженных кнопок, который позволяет прокручивать страницы проведением пальца по правой части тача.
Cons: -Отсутствие в корпусе разъема для кабеля интернет, для этого необходимо использование переходника (в комплекте есть), -слабый разъем для переходника (расшатался через 2 месяца использования) - предустановлен windows 8 (как по мне, так это мозговынос, поставила win7) - нижняя часть клавиш, особенно пробел и стрелки часто не откликаются, приходится затрачивать больше времени на написание текстов и их редактирование - слабый экран - отсутствие второй кнопки Fn в правой ч...
