Summary: Have had the laptop for probably a year. Pros. -Lightweight -Keypad. -Plays some games well. -Keyboard is nice. -Quite -Looks sleek Cons - Doesn't stay charge very long while watching videos. Maybe 2 hours - I see a tare in the screen seen because of flimsy monitor. - To get the full use of the APU you will need to upgrade the ram. - Can get hot in your lap. - It does not seem to run windows 8.1 very quickly.
Summary: Pros: great performance so far (~2 weeks), incredible speakers for a laptop, efficient tech support, fast delivery Cons: required a quick BIOS edit upon receipt, difficult to left- and right-click with the trackpad (no separate buttons), stiff USB ports
Amazing computer! Perfect for gaming. Price is right also.

Summary: Awesome laptop! Perfect for gaming. I've had it for 4 months and its nothing like my old laptop where i constantly sent it in to fix wires that were poorly installed. Has no disc tray so you can either download everything (like I do) or, just buy a $25 external disc tray. Only problem I had was that when I try to update windows, gives me error "failure to configure, reverting changes". I just contacted Acer and showed me step by step how to solve problem.
Summary: If you plan on upgrading to 8.1 it's pointless just keep windows 8 because Microsoft will not help you upgrade because on their website in technical support they told customers they will not give any more feedback about 8.1 problems
Summary: awesome laptop. as described. very fast. comes with windows 8 and has an acer cloud. very complicated to learn how it works at first but then you get used to it. powerful stereo and camera is just okay. the perfect laptop for the average college student. i do not use it for heavy loads but i will start programming with it soon. i will update if anything comes up. super cute design. very much lighter than my lenovo G500. with full HD 15'' screen.
Summary: Awesome laptop for the price. Very thin and light. Run games from 2/3 years ago very nice. I'm not giving 5 stars because it has a problem in the wifi driver (the problem makes the internet down sometimes), that can be fixed with some research on internet.
Summary: I loved the laptop. And it's specs No complaints It came with lots if deep scratches. I understand refurbished products may show some but not this much. I returned it back due to the cosmetic defects.
