Great value, fast computer.

I can easily correct this problem by putting an object below the bottom front of the laptop that will lift and rotate it back slightly.

I checked other laptops on the shop floor and they all have this effect more or less, usually much less though.

Cons:
-----
Acer has too low a LCD viewing angle on this one at least. Put on a black image full screen, and you see a "rainbow" on the screen -- black is real black only on the rainbow and everywhere else it is gray. Tilt the screen a bit and red turns pale green. It does not both though under normal scenarios. I checked other laptops on the shop floor and they all have this effect more or less, usually much less though. It also seems that contrast-ratio of the Acer screen is very small.

Left and right clicks on the touch pad are too loud.

Pros/Others:
-----------
Great deal! No where else I find a laptop with 17.3" screen with 1600x900 resolution with Core i3 processor (instead of Dual Core or Core 2 Duo) and 4 GB RAM.

Processor speed, even though this is Core i3 and not Core i5 or i7, is just great. Windows experience index is 4.5 for Aero graphics but > 5 for everything else. It played Full HD AVCHD media full screen just fine with around 6% CPU load (even though this is integrated Intel graphics and not dedicated ATI or NVidia graphics card).

There were no dead pixels on the screen.

Touch-pad is multi-touch, which is really nice. This takes you more than half-way to having full touch-screen. I do not need touch-screen anymore given the cost premium!

It has glossy screen which is ideally not preferable but is in fashion these days. I do not like glossy screens as such but found this OK.

No flaws so far with anything. Keyboard keys are good as well. Wireless worked fine. All 4 USB ports, HDMI port, headphones port, DVD drive, all are working fine. Webcam is good as well. Only the costliest Logitech webcams do better than this. Speakers are better than my old laptop.

I am very happy with every aspect of this laptop. It fit my budget and had all the features of the more pricey laptops. I have not encountered any problems in any way with this unit. I would recommend this for anyone.
One last thing, I found out that Acer is owned by Sony :) I have always had nothing but great products from Sony, so this only adds to their great product line.

I've been waiting for months to get a good deal on a laptop, so when this one came up, I jumped. Nearly everything about this laptop is good. It has a big 17 inch screen, it's light, it has an HDMI port and a webcam. It runs cool, and it's quiet. Everything I wanted.

Acer has very good quality screens, and this one is good, except for the vertial viewing angle. When you open a laptop, you adjust the screen either towards you or away from you so that you get the best viewing experience. The problem with this laptop is that the design prevents the screen from being pushed back much beyond about 20 degrees or so. When I have the screen pushed back as far as it will go, the colors appear washed out, and there's a lot of "light pollution" at the bottom of the screen (meaning that towards the bottom of the screen, too much white light appears, and blacks appear gray or washed out.) I can easily correct this problem by putting an object below the bottom front of the laptop that will lift and rotate it back slightly. However, I don't want to have to do this everytime I use it, so I had to return it.

My current 4-year-old Acer laptop will open up completely to 180 degrees, providing a perfect viewing angle to any user, so I'm surprised that they would create a laptop that limits this important setting. I looked at some other brands of laptops yesterday, and they don't have this limitation. If I could have sat down at a desk with the laptop before buying it, I would have noticed this right away, but they are displayed on shelves that prevent you from really trying them out. Considering the $499 I paid for the unit, I would have given it a full 5-stars because of the cost-value. I would only buy this unit if you can sit down with it and see it in person. I wouldn't buy it online unless the seller has a good return policy.

Great value, fast computer. As long as you're willing to lug it around (it's on the heavy side, as are most 17 inch laptops), it's a good deal

The one con i think of it the lack of a dedicated graphics card. Intel integrated Graphics ruins this computer.

I tried to purchase this laptop at Staples and the salesman highly recommended buying the extended warranty because he said they had people returning these with motherboard burn out.
