I've only been using this laptop for a few days. But it's a winner. Great screen, speakers,keyboard,webcam,very easy to set up. Windows 7 is a snap to use. (I've been using Vista, before that XP Pro and XP.)The laptop comes with 4gb of ram. I ordered two 4gb. to increase the ram to 8gb. I found the upgrade here on Amazon for only $29. That's cheap enough. I would recommend Acer to anyone that wants a good computer that doesn't cost a lot of money.

After looking at laptops for several months I finally settled on this little beauty. This is my first laptop and I have fallen in love with it. I wanted a machine to use "Push 2 TV" with and kiss my cable bill goodbye and I did just that. Life is good! Caught this Acer on sale at Micro Center for $379 and I couldn't be happier. If you're thinking about this one, get it. You won't be sorry especially at $379.

I bought this laptop a year ago. My laptop died and I needed a new one quick. Money was tight and so I shopped around(big box stores, online, etc...) and I kept coming back to this one. I love this computer it exceeded my expectations. I waited a year to review because I feel this is the best way to measure how well an electronic device works. It's easy to write a good review 3 days after you bought something when it is still shiny new. This laptop took a beating and still runs prefect, not one issue. I use it for work and school everyday for at least three hours at a time. Acer makes a great product at a great price. Don't let the low price fool you this was well worth the $500. I ran ArcGIS 9.3 (full version)right out of the box no problem. I also used it for class on 3d game design and 3d online worlds, not one hiccup.
I bought this as a cheap stop gap measure to get me by till I got a better laptop and never traded-up.
Buy This laptop.

I bought this laptop as a secondary laptop for my family as I have my work and personal laptops already. Shipment arrived before promised date and packaging was done very well. I liked the glossy deep black look though it attracts a lot of lint/dust and it is not very bulky for it's size. It took me less than 30 min to light it up and was not loaded with a lot of junk software. It took some effort to install printer driver, as "Add Printer" did not give me an option to load the driver from CD so I had to do minimal install of HP printer software. I was able to connect with my TV and Home Theater Receiver using HDMI as this laptop will be used a lot for this purpose and was a main factor for buying this. It's body has a feel of plastic case and needs to be handled with a bit of caution. Multi-touch mouse pad is also not very responsive to be best in class but not a big deal for me. I am curious about WI-DI feature which I am not able to explore now but intend to at some point of time. I am not able to find any negative with laptop in 2-3 days of my ownership and quite like the screen size/display quality. I bought it at a deal price and it is totally worth it.

I picked this laptop up for $400 on Amazon as a gift for my mom. I spent a few hours setting it up for her before hand and I have to say for the price I'm really impressed. Things could be better - namely the screen isn't very good, it gets washed out very easily, but it's not terrible.

As long as you set your expectations accordingly you'll be very happy with it. As stated, the screen isn't great, there's no backlit keyboard, and specs aren't blazing fast but that's not really something you can expect in a laptop under $500. What it does offer that a lot of others don't is USB 3.0 (most will have only 2.0), Intel Core i3 (most will have either Pentium D or AMD) or Intel WiDi. It's really impressive to find that in a laptop so cheap. To really improve the problem specs (screen namely, maybe hard drive speed/size) the laptop would likely have to cost double.

All in all, very pleased. Acer bloatware was minimal and easily removed too. I probably had it all cleaned off and installed with the software she'd need in under 2 hours.

If you think you'd like this laptop, then I suggest buying it. It has been more satisfying than I would have thought, and I have had less problems than years I've owned the computer. A fantastic device.

A little late, considering I've had this laptop all of high school and now at the end of my first year of college. I guess I was inspired during my search for another laptop, looking at everything from specs including graphics, processors, USB ports, weight, etc., etc. and seeing some very discouraging reviews scattered through the positive ones. It can make searching for a new laptop immensely frightening, and seeing some awful reviews for this computer (on which I'm typing this review), I felt I needed to vouch for this machine.

I've had this laptop for four and a half years now, and only now is it starting to slow down and have some occasional issues with performance. These mostly include slower processing (though it's a problem I only see if I've left the laptop on too long without rebooting at all) and, only in the last month or two, an inability to run League of Legends, which I should mention is after all a demanding game, especially considering this laptop lacks a dedicated graphics card.

The one thing that really inspired me to write this review, as far back as a year (though I hadn't gotten around to it) was when I was sitting at my laptop drinking a bottle of water, and I upended the bottle and spilled water literally across the entire keyboard. I mopped up most of it with paper towels, and even managed to get into the crevices, but it was no good. Shortly afterward the screen went black and refused to turn on even when I held the power button for some time.
