Summary: I have owned this tablet for a year now and it is still fast and still reliable. Even though I have a faster desktop I still use this tablet more. heat has never been an issue, wireless signal has always been solid, and the ssd performance is as unrivaled today as it was a year ago.
Summary: Its Wi-Fi reception is weak, but I can deal with that. What I can't deal with is how amazing slow it is. Using the web (e.g., Facebook) and/or Word with a mouse connected (Bluetooth, USB wireless, or USB corded), the system is so slow that the pointer won't even track across the screen without pausing. I opened a ticket with Acer, and they had me return it to them for service. Their solution was to restore it to factory defaults, but that did not solve the problem.
Summary: I had to disable the touchscreen out of frustration. I now use it docked and connected to an external monitor, keyboard and mouse. The problem is, the left side of the screen randomly register touches at intervals. Initially, I would log off and log in to "fix" the issue temporarily, but that doesn't work anymore. I would have sent it back if I were not living overseas now.
Summary: A life-long desktop man, I bought this to play with mostly to familiarize myself with Windows 8 because, well, you know, someday we'll all need to know how 8 works. I find myself using it quite a lot more than I had imagined. OS aside, I really like the little bugger. Perfect size, not too heavy, fast and reliable. It has been dropped several times by my two little nieces who just love to play games on it. No damage at all, so far.
