Only 4 stars because I was able to speed mine up
on April 5, 2014
I picked this up at BestBuy for $250 mainly because I wanted a full computer that fits in my purse in case work calls me. Yes, the computer is slow when it first boots up which is mostly due to all of the crap that ACER puts on it. Here's what I did:
Remove WildTangent games
Remove all of the ACER apps
Remove Simtoo (or whatever that's called)
Install Diskeeper 12
Sure, it's not a blazing fast machine but I needed something that could play HD videos and browse the web while connecting to work now and then.
The keyboard takes a little getting used to and the battery life is less than ideal but I needed something with high storage capacity, a keyboard, and is portable. It uses Windows 8.1 with a resolution of 1366x768 so it's decent enough. The screen is touch screen also.
Still, I'm happy with it but that was after getting rid of all of that bloatware and installing Diskeeper to defragment the drive effectively.
