I just bought this for my girlfriend and received it yesterday so I haven't been able to fully put it through the paces.

That being said, I am completely satisfied so far. It came with an unhealthy amount of bloatware and the HDD was partitioned into 3 sections for 'recovery' so I did a fresh install of Win7 and got rid of the BS partitions. I noticed it was much snappier after the fresh install. Acer didn't have the wireless driver on the site with the rest of the drivers but a google search lead me in the right direction.

The keyboard is great! A big selling point was the built-in keypad. The only problem with this is when you are in normal typing position (ie. not using keypad), your hands will be on the far left of the computer so if you're using it on your lap, it's a little awkward because your hands are shifted to the left side of your body. It feels a bit unnatural. The exterior is aesthetically pleasing. Mouse click buttons were a little stiff toward the middle but are fine on the far left or right - no big deal.

I was able to stream a 1080p video to my 42" TV using the HDMI port and the computer didn't struggle at all. We watched ZombieLand + another hour of just messing around on it all on battery.

Aside from the bloatware and the offset keyboard, I really have no complaints thus far. For the price, this is an amazing deal!!

Acer's laptops are build solidly and offer good bang for your buck. Performance is good, the product is easy on the eyes and it does not fall apart two months after purchase.

Keep in mind however that you will be disappointed if you ever needed support from Acer. Their call center is located in India, where the support representatives take pride in turning even routine requests into a frustrating tedium. Acer does not include any media with its machines, so be sure to budget 2 hours of your time to create recovery and repair DVDs.

Likewise, be sure to write down the Windows OEM product key from the sticker on the back of your machine. You will need it if you have to restore the machine and Acer will not help you if the sticker become illegible through daily use. Otherwise, you will need to purchase a retail copy of Windows although you have already paid for the OEM license. Acer will absolutely not help you and the license key is not printed in the warranty manual, it's only on the sticker on the bottom of the machine.

Boo, Acer!

I purchased this laptop to be my "browsing internet on the couch" laptop. I installed Office on it, but I dont plan to do any work on it, or play games. I am not even sure if I ever will use the video camera. But, still, it is a great small compact laptop - pretty slick and lightweight. Nice keyboard layout and feel of flat keys. It does not get hot at all - even being turned on all day - which is nice, since I just hold it on my lap reclining on the couch. The wide screen makes it easier to see entire screen content without having to scroll left and right.

Okay, first, let me say I have been programming and using computers since the mid 1970's so I have seen a lot come and go. I studied electrical engineering in college, specializing in computer design. That being said, I have often liked Acer because of their high quality to price ratio. You usually don't pay a lot for an Acer and you usually get what you pay for as the expression goes, but Acer usually delivers more that you might expect. Sorry, but not this time.

I have to say that I am somewhat disappointed with this machine. I didn't expect stereo speakers and I didn't expect a fast machine. What I did expect is a machine that can do what I want with it: Write.

The keyboard is laid-out alright but after a surprisingly short time, the joints in the fingers can get sore. That is indicative of less cushioning than they should have. Okay, it's a laptop. I can plug in an external keyboard. Fine. But, my main problem is that the keyboard seems to be wired just like an USB keyboard would be. Probably for design concerns. I haven't checked it out but the end result is the same. Sorry, I have been using keyboards since the early 1970's - started with type-writers. And no, I don't have any old habits from them because I switched to computers almost exclusively by 1980. My big problem with USB keyboards is, frankly that they cannot keep up. Ever since PCs went that route, I noticed dropped characters or words with all the letters, they were just in the wrong sequence. At first, I chalked it up to age, but after having used a friend's old desktop computer with a PS2 keyboard, I noticed those problems were not there anymore. The buffer seems to be holding keystrokes until the scan gets back to them. The misspellings are ones I never did before and never do if I use a PS2 wired keyboard.
