It's very thin and very light. The screen has excellent resolution and reasonably responsive touch capabilities. Since it turns itself on when you open it, you need to actually shut it down to (carefully) clean the screen. it uses an SSD and never shuts itself off unless you force it to shut down, it comes up quite fast and is ready to go. It's even fast on a cold boot, like most SSD systems.
That's mostly it for the good.
Until recently, the WiFi would just stop connecting and I'd need to manually reconnect to my router or an AP at work. Bluetooth would also get wiggy and stop communicating, particularly after a modest pause in activity. This was such a regular "feature" with the included BT mouse that I had to search out one that would work better. Never found one, though the Logitech BT travel mouse works more often than not.
Battery life is also not good. Running the screen at around 80% gives me about three hours or a bit more. Dimming down to 50% gives me five hours and change, but given the level of eye strain it feels more like 8 hours. On the other hand, the brick isn't too large and packs easily into a briefcase of bag.
Man but I hate - HATE - typing on this thing. Sure, all ultrabooks/Macbook Air have "Chiclet" type keyboards, and maybe the Aspire isn't particularly worse than most, but it sure feels that way.Read more ›
Anyway, #2 from Amazon arrived with a bad space key. You had to mash the Space key very hard to get it to work if it worked at all so back it went. Amazon prime shipping and returns are a breeze though which is why I love Amazon so much. The 3rd computer arrived in this time in perfect working condition - 3rd time's a charm as they say.
Many oohs and ahs at work meetings on the size and styling. Admittedly the styling is very Mac-like but it's thinner, touch screen and compatible with all of my PC programs for work and home. Honestly though, I find the touch screen pretty useless on a laptop/ultrabook. If it folded back, like a tablet it would be a perfect design.
Sounds like it should be a 2-star review but really this thing is so light and sexy and nothing came close to matching it in May 2013. It's the best 'laptop' I've owned so far ( and I've had HP, Sony, Toshiba, and the worst of the worst my current Dell Aspire 'aka "brick" or "P.o.S" for work that I no longer carry - it now stays docked 24-7).
A note about battery life: I'm getting up to 5 hours running internet/documents, and around 2 hours running League of Legends. This is with all settings optimized for power saving and wi-fi turned on. With wi-fi turned off i.e. airplane mode, I can get 6 to 7 hours.
The speakers work quite well, as does the touchscreen. Thanks to the SSD, boot time from completely shut down to the lock screen is slightly less than 5 seconds. This is an excellent laptop for its price. I could not find it for less elsewhere.
At first I was excited about its light weight, and its stylish form factor. But I have since learned that these come at way too high a cost.
The keyboard is basically unusable. Because the laptop is so thin, there's almost no key travel, which means keystrokes are often missed or accidentally doubled. After five months I still have not found a way to be accurate typing on this thing. The touchpad is also tricky, though I'm not sure what causes it to be so.
Out of the box, the wireless is a serious mess. Major issues getting connected to a most of the different networks I use, and I'm still not confident that I've got it squared away.
Also, it seems minor, but has been a big issue: the placement of the power button on the side is exactly where you would put your hand to pick it up. So I'm always accidentally turning it off when I want to shift in my seat. Seriously, I turned it off while writing this review.
I went with an Acer rather than an HP in the hopes that the machine wouldn't be bogged down with bloatware. Sadly, this is not the case. Acer has all of their own tools they'd like me to be using; who knows how many conflicts they cause with Windows 8. I did eventually uninstall some Acer app that seems to have fixed a persistent crash, but it took a long time to troubleshoot.
The touchscreen has so much glare, I find myself twisting and turning in an attempt to find a position where it can be seen.
And, it's a small thing, but it only comes with one charger - evidently an uncommon charger as it took me forever to find a backup.Read more ›

Great computer. Very light and easy to use. The only cons would be the relatively small hard drive, and the fact that the keyboard can be finicky and hard to use at first.Published 20 months ago by SNAME
