Priced right, slightly problematic.

  • Summary: I'm a big fan of Acer and have converted both my personal systems and those at my office to this brand. I'm not as well-versed with Windows 8.1, as I've run Windows 7 everywhere else, but it's the OS and a couple of small design quirks that have lowered the rating I've given. This laptop isn't something that's put to use every day, but I've noticed each time we've used it, we have to wait for all of the system updates to be completed.

Great refurb

  • Summary: I got this as a refurb and was quite concerned. But for the price and 12GB RAM i went for it. The unit looks brand new. It even had the stickers on the hinges and screen still.
  • Pros: Memory, not a lot of bloatware installed, lighted keyboard, price, HD, Touch Screen
  • Cons: None so far

So far, so good!

  • Summary: The 15.6 measurement turned out to be a lot bigger than I expected. I guess I'm old and I'm used to a 15" screen meaning 1" of the edges being unusable black space.
  • Pros: Fast processor, large screen, back-lit keyboard, long power cord.
  • Cons: Single surface touchpad (no separate buttons for right and left clicking), makes getting a right-click action a pain.

Acer 15.6" Aspire Laptop 6GB 750GB | V5-573P-9899

  • Summary: It has all good specifications. The screen looks awesome. Its fun watching full HD videos in this laptop. Feels like theater(may not be as good as that).I felt laptop is bit heavy than I expected. Speakers are good compare to other laptops I have seen. Even touch screen works fine. Charging lasts long. very rarely becomes slow but, that is fine for me. I recommend this laptop for people who watches videos a lot.

Fantastic deal

Chris, Newegg

  • Summary: Definitely worth my money as I bought this as a refurb for $550 after rebate.
  • Pros: -Fantastic screen: once you try a full 1080p screen on this 15.6'', you'll wonder how people even get work done on those typical 1366x738 resolutions. The extra screen space is amazing and definitely worth the money. The brights are bright, and the screen is incredibly sharp. There is an immense amount of screen real estate to utilize despite this being on 15.6''
  • Cons: Touch pad is a bit disappointing as its definitely feeling cheaper than the rest of the computer. It's not a deal breaker as there are wireless mouses, or you can even satisfactorily use the touch pad as your main means of moving the cursor, the only problem I have is that it does not feel incredibly strong, and pressing down the buttons does move the cursor- maybe my touch pad is a tad too sensitive? It feels nice in the hands otherwise, definitely not a huge issue.

1080p touchscreen of awesomeness

Ben W, Newegg
7 July 2014
  • Summary: Overall close to how I would custom configure a laptop for me.
  • Pros: So far, pleased with this refurb. Shows no signs of past use. The 1080P screen is great. Touchscreen is nice to have option. All the USB3/HDMI/Ethernet ports are there. None of the silly stuff -- optical drive, discrete graphics -- that tend to add weight and battery drain.
  • Cons: Manufacturers should be using SSDs in laptops. Takes about 12 seconds to boot Windows 8.1. For me hard to justify upgrading now, but glad to read others have had no problems swapping in an SSD. Comes with Windows 8.0 installed. Get ready for a half day running windows updates. Luggable weight, but not for those looking for an Ultrabook.
