Good but one glaring weakness

PenName, Amazon
17 May 2014
  • Summary: And no, I'm not talking about the shiny, shiny screen. Well okay, I am talking about it but not about the glare. The problem is this screen is not robust. Carrying around in a backpack (fit snugly) one day I opened it and the screen was shattered from the top-left corner. Had to totally disable touch to continue using it. Acer won't replace it because it's "not a defect". But do some searches on this model and you will find cracked screens are widely reported.

I thought this would solve my laptop problems.

10 February 2014
  • Summary: This laptop sounded great when I bought it. Large screen, touch screen. But I have had nothing but problems since I bought it. It freezes up, the touchpad stopped working. I ordered reset disks from the maker. I Wiped the computer clean. Used the reset disks and it has not gotten better. Stay away if you do not to wait all day to do something.

Great Compter, But It's Made Of Paper Mâché.

Robert Mccormick, Amazon
16 October 2013
  • Summary: It was a neat touchscreen computer, but there are a couple things wrong with the item and description. The desciption states that it comes with a built in Smartcard Reader and it does not, it only comes with a SD media card reader. The computer screen is not for active people and is not made of Gorilla Glass, and upon any sort of impact the screen will instantly shatter into small shards of worthlessness.

User Review

18 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Обычно мне некогда описывать каждый ноутбук, но когда принесли такую машинку в третий раз - не выдержал. Его старший брат ( 75й ), получше из за видеокарты, но и он с теми же болезнями.. Через 2-3 месяца покупатели начинают жаловаться на потерю производительности и ошибки операционной системы. Восьмерка там не к месту - она перегружает и без того слабый проц кучей процессов паразитов.
  • Pros: Красивый, изящный корпус с подсвеченной клавиатурой, отличный экран.. и он (ноут) тихий.
  • Cons: 1. Маломощный процессор, даже очень.. 2. USB входы расположены близко друг к другу. 3. После двух месяцев работы стал клинить лоток дисковода 4. Точпад глючный !! - не помогают ни какие драйвера. С завода некалиброванный. Легкое движение пальца и система выполняет кучу команд и совсем не тех что просили..

Il manque le rétroéclairage du clavier

Antonio, Amazon
30 December 2012
  • Summary: Bien que le guide rapide spécifie à la page 9 l'activation du rétroéclairage du clavier, cette fonction manque. Le clavier n'est pas rétroéclairé. La ventilation est un peu bruyante. La description sur la page amazon spécifie une entrée jack microphone, en fait il n'y a qu'une seule entrée jack pour le casque audio, je ne peux pas brancher la prise jack de mon microphone et celle de mon casque en même temps.
