In any event, I bought this after much online comparison between this and a Toshiba laptop. The Toshiba laptop had slightly better specs (one more additional USB 3.0 port and higher RAM) but the Acer laptop just looks better. And sure enough, once I brought it out of the box, I was impressed by how sleek and sexy it looks in person. Yes, it's a sexy laptop!
So, pros (asides from sexy appearance):
I'm most impressed so far with how fast it handled iTunes. Even on my husband's newer (but still old) desktop computer, iTunes take forever to load. This probably loaded iTunes in a few seconds.
USB 3.0 is fast. An album pretty much transfers instantly from my portable harddrive. If I selected 20 or so albums at a time, it probably takes less than a minute. It used to take at least two days to transfer some 5,000 songs to my iPod on my old laptop. On this computer, it took about two hours.
Sound and video both play well on this laptop. I don't need my laptop to be an entertainment center so my expectations aren't high in either regards. But from what I've used of the audio and video components, the laptop more than meets my expectations in terms of having a good sound when playing back audio and video looking crisp.
It's extremely quiet, even when the fans come on. Along with the quiet, it hasn't had issues with overheating. I've ran it for 2-3 hour periods and it's never felt slightly warmer than room temperature. It's advertised to have up to 4.5 hours of battery life and so far, that's been correct.Read more ›
I had an issue with the sound quality for about a month until I realized the Dolby Home Theater was set to off. I don't know if off was the default, but it was frustrating trying to figure out why the volume was so low even when set to 100% on both the computer and the website volume. You can change it by clicking on the up arrow in the bottom right hand corner of the computer screen. Hover your mouse over the Dolby Home Theater icon and right click for your off/on options as well as how to mix the sound.
My main gripe is that this computer comes with Windows 8, but I guess all the new ones have Windows 8 so Big Brother can keep a close watch on everybody better. (You have to get a Microsoft email acct to use most of the features, including SKYPE!!!!)
I deducted one star because the shiny lid is a fingerprint magnet. Not a big deal, doesn't affect the operation of the laptop. Also a couple (3?) of dead pixels on the screen. But not enough to trigger a replacement. So I can't give it a perfect 5.

I like the case color, its very masculine.
Though is not good for extreme videogames, I could play the 2013 Tomb Raider Game, pretty well.
Oh. Okay, laptop. If you want to shut down for no reason after I let you charge as recommended straight out of the box then by all means do. Actually no, I've had it. Read morePublished on December 16, 2013 by Lilian B Taylor
