I considered taking a star off pretty much because it's Windows 8.1, but it's not that big a deal. I had read in a different review that it's "advertised as coming with bluetooth, but it actually doesn't." It took some digging, but it does in fact have bluetooth. You just have to sift through Windows 8's horrible UI. It's pretty much inaccessible from desktop mode. But that's really a small thing, and there's lots you can do to increase usability. Lots of guides out there to make Windows 8 more like Windows 7.
Make sure you understand what you do and do not get from this before buying, and judge your needs. It doesn't come with an optical drive, as is mentioned, and it doesn't have a dedicated graphics card. It plays HD videos splendidly, but you can't do high end gaming. Still, a good work horse if you want a bigger screen and a full keyboard.
****6 Month Update****
6 months later and I am still incredibly happy with this purchase. However a few things have come to light. Upgrading things on here is a pain. You have to remove all fifteen screws from the bottom, then pry the keyboard up. Be very careful, as it would be easy to snap plastic, or break a wire that connects the keyboard to the rest of the computer. Pretty standard stuff to be upgraded. You can add another stick of RAM, switch out the hard drive for a solid state drive, or even add in a DVD drive to it. But if you aren't comfortable with pulling electronics apart, do not do it on your own. It's very easy to break something, and/or void your warranty.
Second issue is a small one. Trackpad is just slightly to the left. Might make it nice for a left handed person, but as a righty, I often find myself accidentally right clicking something instead of left clicking it. Again, not a big deal, but it needed to be said.
Everything I praised about the laptop is still working wonderfully. Probably the best thing is I've found the Core i3 chip lets me do some light gaming. Portal, Minecraft and old system emulators run pretty well and are fun to do with friends. If you don't need a Mac or high end gaming PC, but you need to do more than with something like a Chromebook, this laptop is a solid choice.
I personally just upgraded the laptop with more ram and a SSD, so I'll let you know how it handles those upgrades after some time with them.
P.S. If you don't like the Windows 8 interface, I highly recommend getting Start8. It'll give you your start menu back, and allow you to disable the annoying parts of Windows 8 while still getting the OS's performance boost.
*****2 Years Later*****
Laptop is still chugging along. It has survived the Windows 10 upgrade, and with it makes great use of the SSD I installed.
The trackpad is still a sore issue. Really wish it was more centered, or better defined areas for left and right clicks.
I now kinda wish it had more USB ports. Since I hate using the trackpad, I'm forced to keep a mouse plugged in, so only two are available. I'd gripe about only having one USB 3.0 port, but two and a half years ago, having one on such an inexpensive machine was pretty nice. Still, showing its age with that.
Honestly, I don't see a need to replace it any time soon. If I get anything on my tax return, I might consider getting another laptop in the Acer Aspire line. This machine has been great to me.
Things I dislike are the fact that so much junk is already installed. Has McAfee internet protection which isn't needed at all considering the fact that Windows 8 already has anti-virus protection built into it. Not many people know this with Windows 8 so make sure you get rid of it or you can keep it for extra protection but not needed at all. Another thing was mine came and it needed updated so that is a little disturbing considering its not already up to date.
Cons: The trackpad (where you put your finger to move the mouse) is not as good as I hoped it would be. There's no indication of where left and right clicks are so often you'll find yourself accidentally right clicking something over and over again. It's not the worst, but it does become noticeable, especially when you're stressed! Do yourself a favor and buy a nice mouse to go with this. Also, the delete button doesn't work well. You can hold it down and it'll delete 5 letters per second. It's super annoying!
