Summary: Computer seemed fine at first but after spending 4 or 5 hours installing updates and customizing the settings a yellow line appeared on screen. Tried updating the graphics driver but various sites on the web listed this problem as a hardware issue... Back in the box and returned it to Walmart next day. That's what I get for trying to save a few bucks.
Summary: I have used an HP for the past several years and recently allowed someone to suggest Acer. This Laptap was the right price for the specs but I DISLIKE THIS COMPUTER! The graphics, sound,etc are great but for work purposes the mousepad is touchy and constantly erases my work or swipes to another page completely....
Summary: very fast, smooth,, no dvd drive but bought one and problem resolved, i see now the price is $899!!! thanks god i bought it on black friday at $529.99, very thin laptop,, well I will triple recommend it
Summary: I have been using this laptop for few months now and I like it very much. Its design is pretty good, very lightweight as it doesn't have a dvd R/RW. The processor is good, RAM is decent enough to handle Windows 8. I am not sure if this model belongs to the ultra-book specs but it is quite fast with cold reboot time of less than a minute. The battery has enough juice to last for 4+ hours doing some light work.
Summary: When I was shopping for a laptop, I wanted something larger than 13" without breaking the bank. When I came across this Acer, I was pretty surprised. Price was great, screen size was good and the form factor was surprisingly impressive for the price. After receiving it, I'm still happy with my choice. The laptop feels very well built and the keyboard is very easy to type on. The lower end Pentium processor is still capable when compared to an i3.
It is not working End of Feb. 2014, brought 8-2013

Summary: The Acer Aspire V5-572G-6679 15.6-inch Laptop (Polar Black) was never as good as the HP we had before and now it is no longer usable. Sent it off with our son to college (September) and now it is not working end of Feb. 2014. Should of lasted longer than this. Plus, he was using anti-virus. Very disappointed and will not be buying an Acer again.
