Nice looking and battery lasts long

  • 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: Exactly as advertised. It was easy to set up but updates took a long time. I wish computer companies would update the OS before they sent them out. This is an excellent value for a touch screen laptop. I added a 4 GB memory stick quite easily, giving me a total of 8 GB. It does everything I want in a laptop. One complaint is that it seems heavier than I expected but not overly so.

  • Summary: Product is fast, looks good, and meets almost all expectations. The one thing that does not meet my expectations is the durability, meaning the keyboard warping almost immediately (within a few days after getting it).

  • Summary: I like this machine overall. It is a bit heavier than I had originally wanted (4.75# roughly), but is slim and compact otherwise for having a 14" screen. I enhanced the Core i5 processor by upgrading to 8 GB of system RAM. Getting used to Windows 8.1 has involved a steep learning curve and I'm still not sure how much I like it. Most of my prior programs proved compatible and there are some helpful programs included on the computer already.

  • Summary: Bought it as an open box for about $400. Overall great laptop. The i5 processor is decent. Froze on me a couple of times but that's to be expected from any laptop, right?

has been a good one so far

  • Summary: Only giving 4 stars due to the fact that right out of the box, we had to troubleshoot the "No operating system" found (or whatever that message was upon bootup) - turns out we needed to update the bios which we did and it's been a trouper ever since. I figured out the problem by googling it and reading until I found what I though to be the problem. This is apparently a known issue but is easily fixed (for us anyway).... nice little computer!

Nice notebook, not an excellent one

  • Summary: Peace and blessings!. I had made some research before purchasing this notebook. My previous notebook was a HP 1030-US 14". The reasons that made me choose this one have been: Acer brand, Costumers rating and reviews, Core i5, 14 inches touchscreen, Lightweight; Backlit keyboard; Bluetooth 4.0 and USB 3.0, and Price; After working around with it for about two weeks, I can share the following: Pros: Looks sleek, Third generation Core i5 is Ok.

  • Summary: I am not the computer savvy and my son recommended it for me. I am enjoying the touch screen and the different apps that I have at my disposal. I think this product is great for everyone of all ages.

  • Summary: So far this is a great computer for the price. Touch screen is responsive. There were some internet connectivity issues with getting thrown off regularly but since I performed Windows update it seems to be resolved. I recommend this computer.
