Summary: Laptop was fine for a couple months and then HARD DISK died for no reason while I was surfing the internet?? I had a Sony for more than 4 years without a problem - this laptop is a piece of junk. The screen is of horrible quality and hurts your eyes after a couple hours using it.
Summary: I have been using this laptop for 5 months and felt it was time for my review: Pros: 1. The price was the best for the specs listed (at the time). 2. The 10-key on the keyboard is a first for me with a laptop and I have found it extremely helpful when working with excel. 3. Has not froze yet. 3.
Summary: This is the second Acer that I've owned. I had no problems with the original Acer that I had, but this one has an integrated webcam that stopped working within the first 4 months of ownership.
Summary: Bought this from warehouse deals and saved about £100. Had windows 8 on it which I hate so got rid off and and the webcam didn't work. Had already set it up with windows 7 and used serial so couldn't send it back... would have meant being out of pocket.
Five months down the line - problems! Network adapter issues.

Summary: Originally I commented that I was 'generally very pleased with this laptop.' Unfortunately Acer laptops have a well - recognised problem of disconnecting frequently from the Internet - it's a network adapter issue - and my laptop has developed this problem.
Summary: I have had laptops for 18 years and this is undoubtedly the worst one I've owned: it's actually the only bad one, and it is a disaster. I'm writing this review on my iPad as the screen on my ACER is currently smashed -not because it was dropped, but because putting any pressure on the casing behind...
Summary: This laptop would be ok, windows aside, if it weren't for the fact that the wifi is so temperamental that it is barely usable. So if you need a laptop with a decent wifi connection, look elsewhere.
Summary: Seems a solid enough laptop. But bought mainly for internet browsing and the wifi connection has been unstable. At this stage I am not sure what is causing this, the hardware or Windows 8 - but it's detracting from enjoyment of the computer.
Summary: The functionality of the keyboard console is horrible. For instance, the mouse pad is placed in such a way that when typing it frequently causes the cursor to randomly move or the screen to switch to another program or application erratically.
