Summary: I was looking for a Core i7 laptop with a bright 1080p 15.6" touchscreen. This laptop was about the only one I could find (at least back in June). The Dell, Toshiba, and HP had screens with similar specs, but they were dimmer. The Acer's display is gorgeous! While the i7 is a dual core (would have preferred a quad-core for better future-proofing), it is still fast enough for everyday use.
Summary: This computer is incredible. Best $800 I ever spent. This replaced my wife's older laptop. This type of laptop with last a very long time. The 4 gig video card and Touch Screen are the best features.
Summary: I am currently an engineering student at Chico State and bought this laptop because it had the most to offer for the price in a lightweight package. It is light enough to carry around and fits in a backpack easily. I was nervous about screen resolution, however i was pleasantly surprised at the pixel density. The touchscreen works great, and the touchpad is nice and big.
Summary: I would definitely recommend this laptop to anybody in the market for a Windows 8 touchscreen laptop. This computer can be great for a wide range of computer users - from the social media elite, the programmer, the internet multi-tasker, and the big time gamer. I haven't had this machine 'hiccup' once on me, and it can handle games like Battlefield 3, Borderlands 2, and Tomb Raider on medium~high settings. With a Cooler Master fan, this beast is unstoppable!
It was as expected, the right product, on time, excellent!

Summary: It was as expected, the right product: we were looking for a full featured notebook at low price, arrived on time: we received this product during our hollidays in Miami, an it was very important to get it in a the proper time, excellent!
Summary: I just got this laptop and all I can say its the best value 15 inch ultrabook you can find. My previous laptop was asus ux31a with full HD and I was getting lot of eyestrain on that one so 15inch was particular requirement for me. Key Points what make this laptop hands down best 15 inch value laptop! - Amazing IPS display by AU Optronics.

Summary: I was searching for a laptop that could run medium range games and softwares for my profession like ACAD and Revit; all this within a student budget. First time trying Acer products, and I gotta say, this one is impressive. For the right price I can play games that I play at the x360 withouth any problem. I LOVE the fact that it has the i7 Nvidia convination, plus 900 gbs, I could fragment the HDD for personal misc/gaming and school/job stuff.
Summary: First let me say the first thing I did was swap the old school 5400 RPM drive out for an SSD. This was $850 on Amazon and has an i7 and a Geforce GT 750. If I were to try and buy those with an SSD it would drive up the cost far beyond what I paid for this laptop. This runs Borderlands 2, StarCraft 2 on close to max settings. It's a great system for its price point. Hopefully that helps.
Summary: This is a very powerful Ultrabook and yet very slim and light, can fit into my jansport backpack. it can run most of the new games for almost the highest quality, its 1 tb storage makes it more portable as you don't have to carry a hard drive around with it... battery lasts for 5.5 hours which is more than reasonable for such compact and light Ultrabook. It feels really luxurious and modern thanks to the metal coating.
