Summary: I originally bought this laptop for college, so that gives you an idea of what I needed from it (run MS Office, Spotify, maybe do some light gaming). As far as my expectations, they weren't that much, especially since this computer is an upgrade from a laptop that was mediocre in 2007, but let me say this: This computer is amazing.
Summary: This laptop came working properly, and since I bought it, I haven't had any problems at all. The touch pad is not the best, but it is functional. It's fast and can run all of the programs I've tried. I'd recommend this to anyone that asked.
Summary: This is a great laptop computer and is very fast with the A8 processor. Came with WIN 8.0 which I upgraded to WIN 8.1 with no difficulty. 1T hard drive provides awesome storage and with my backup hard drive it is unlimited. Keyboard takes some getting used to as it is offset to the left but the led lighting at this price is awesome! Nice led lit touchscreen at this price point! Acer has done a great job with this laptop and recommend it without reservation.
Could have had a better configuration out of the box

Summary: Not enough USB ports, too many apps came with it that I don't want. Seems more vulnerable to attacks and more unstable than most laptops. Maybe that is just Windows 8 or the apps I am running, but apps are constantly stalling and crashing. Or pop-ups are having to be managed. Could have had a better configuration out of the box.
