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.

  • Summary: I wish I liked this computer but I had problems with it since I got it. Maybe I got a lemon. Wouldn't load up right. Would get me from one site then put me on another website. Had a mind of its own. Wouldn't shut down. I was going to purchase this again but took my chance with the Gateway (Acer) Windows 7 (should arrive soon and will give you my review on that one). Pros: It's a nice metallic light blue and Windows 7, and Acer have the best consumer reviews.

  • Summary: The overall product seemed nice for the price. I was looking for a smaller size. It is hard to sit with it on your lap. The mouse was all over the place. The mouse was the deciding factor in returning the product. Computer was light weight and the screen quality was average. The best feature was it was a windows 7.

  • Summary: The fan seems to run constantly - The fan is louder than any computer I've owned so it makes the fan running constantly an issue or maybe the issue is simply the loudness of the fan. My first Acer product purchase and likely my last.

I thought this would solve my laptop problems.

Eric J. Pelto, Amazon
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.

Virginia Wyer, Amazon
23 June 2013
  • Summary: I'VE HAD A COMPAQ, 2 DELLS (ALSO LAPTOPS) THIS IS MY FIRST TOUCHSCREEN AND WINDOWS 8 COMPUTER. I'VE HAD " SEVERAL " EXPERIENCED USERS AND THEY WERE UNABLE TO FIGURE HOW THIS OPERATES. EG; I AM ON A SITE THERE IS NO WAY TO EXIT OTHER THAN GOING TO THE RIGHT SIDE AND POWERING OFF. EVERY TIME I CHANGE WEBSITES, I HAVE TO PUT IN MY PASSWORD. THIS IS VERY FRUSTRATING!!! MANY OTHER PROBLEMS TO MANY TO LIST. THE TIMLY FASHION FOR DELIVER , WAS EXCELLENT.
