Ive had this Acer for about a month now and I love it.

When you type, the fat of your palms brushes against the mouse pad so the typing cursor disappears and you constantly have to find the cursor again.

Gotta say it's a great investment. Amd has always been good in making power efficient processors, e series is one of those. That plus the newest 6000 series graphics, this laptop is ready to rock.The processor on this one is dual core 1.6 ghz, which is the only downgrade for me. Multitasking is very limited on this laptop, had a slight stutter while having an antivirus scan on it while watching a youtube video. The vebcam is pretty descent, hihg contrast but norhing to worry about. Some of preinstalled softwarw is actually useful, no recovery discs arw provided, you have to make your own. Touchpad is good, configurable gestures etc. This laptop is made for low powwe consumption and longer battery life.

I bought this laptop for 400 bucks from Amazon. My mom was learning how to use the computer, so I needed a budget laptop for her. She loves it. We haven't had any problems and the basic functional things like email, video chat, word processing, and applications are all there. What else does a 58 year old woman need during her retirement? Awesome buy and I am very happy with this purchase. Unless you're a gamer, you do not need to spend more than 500 bucks on laptops nowadays!

I bought this Laptop for college and basic web surfing around the house. I also use it to connect to my Xbox 360 for steaming music and such. And to get drivers for my main computer (Gaming desktop). Anyways back to the review.

Pros:
- AMD's Fusion APU is actually a decent processor.
- AMD HD 6310 is a decent video card. Able to play some of today's games at low to medium settings.
- Acer build quality around this laptop is pretty good, for $400.
- Not a finger print magnet, which i love.
- Really quiet and easy to type on.

Cons:
- Processor can get maxed out at 100% alot, so i would only recommend light multitasking (haha, i guess im used to my AMD 6 core CPU to much)
- Fan runs at full blast (loud), while it boots up. Only for a few seconds though.
- Acer bloatware is annoying, and why is there two antivirus's pre-installed on the OS? But once you uninstall all the useless bloatware, it actually gets a nice performance boost.
- I dislike the glossy screen. A matte finish would have made sense, given the overall design.
- Came with out-dated Bios, which gave me some problems. Though, its easy to update to the latest Bios from the Acer website.

Even though, none of the cons are a deal beaker. Just needs some room for improvement, i would recommend this laptop. Its perfect for the college student. I can not recommend this as a desktop replacement, the processor is to slow for anything other than some light multitasking, web surfing, video chat, etc.

So if your looking for a decent laptop for college are basic computing, then this is your answer. And a good value at $400. Alot better than anything Intel has to offer at this price tag.

Thank you for your time.

I have been on it for about a week now and it looks like this laptop will work out nicely. I am currently looking for more software for my personal Finance and Book Keeping for Rentals and Tenets and also a small business. Microsoft Excel looks amazing so far and the network who are making up the templates are doing fantastic!

Only wish It was a bit faster.
