I bought the second one because Costco has it for $299 and another $65 or so got me three years of run it over with a car warranty. Can't beat that price.
Then, with my 38 years of computer experience, I removed all the bloat-ware, and as the other reviewers wrote, the machine sped up to a crawl.
By the way, one extra strike against it, I could find no way to single or dual boot Linux, not Ubuntu or Mint, properly on the machine, even using a USB 3 flash drive like a hard drive. The graphics in the machine just wouldn't work right. That's a shame because unlike Windows 8, Linux would run fine on a slug like this computer.
I almost forgot to mention, just in case you didn't already know this, Windows 8 really sucks. If you are an expert though, you can fight Microsoft's efforts to replace every functional program you might run on Windows with an Android-style touch app that can't do anything. For example, how about a Skype that does let you change phone numbers of contacts? Microsoft's idea of touch-screen software is to provide programs with no interface. They think they've been beaten by the simplicity of Android and IPad, so they are trying to go one better in the dumbing down apps process.
-Zero chassis flex
-Keyboard is solid (no flex)
-IPS panel touchscreen
-4GB of Ram
-Keyboard keys are a little small due to chiclet design on an 11.6" laptop
-Battery life is mediocre- my last Acer in this price category had an 8 hour battery life
-Mouse pad requires a strong tap to register a "click"
-Screen is not as bright as it could be
-No extended battery or dock available yet
-HDD is large but slow (like most laptops)- I switched it out for a 180GB SSD
-Windows 8 is frustrating and unintuitive
-Need dongles/adapters for VGA/DVI/HDMI out
Overall I like this little laptop. My last Acer (Acer One) beat the pants off of it in battery life, but I knew that when I bought it. Windows 8 hasn't won me over yet either and the touchscreen is nice, but I rarely find myself wanting or needing to utilize it. Really want the extended battery and dock that was promised to be released, but it doesn't look like Acer is in any hurry. Overall this little laptop is great for what I use it for- a content viewer. For content creation I use a triple screen desktop setup with Windows 7. Adding ReviverSoft's Start Menu Reviver definitely helps adjust to Windows 8 and makes it more usable, but I'm still partial to 7. Great little portable though- after the One and the V5 I don't think I could ever go back to a 15"+ laptop (previous to the Acer One I had an Alienware m7700 17" DTR). The SSD and a $5 HDMI out dongle were the only additions I made.
Pretty happy with this laptop and the build quality and chassis rigidity is spectacular- much better than the Acer One. The keyboard is better as well- but the keys are a bit smaller, so it takes some getting used to. Great price here on Amazon as the BestBuy model doesn't have the backlit keyboard.
I definitely recommended!
The USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt/Mini DisplayPort ports are an unexpected surprise at this price and size. The Radeon graphics simultaneously drive the laptop screen and an external HD screen through the Mini DisplayPort with no problems.
My only real complaint is that for external displays the laptop only has a Mini DisplayPort/Thunderbolt port and Acer does not officially support non-Acer adapters even though they work just fine. The laptop comes with a VGA dongle that you may need to carry around but I feel at this price and size the laptop should have been supplied with a VGA port or an HDMI port instead. On the other hand, the Mini DisplayPort/Thunderbolt port means you can hook up DisplayPort and HDMI displays for better display quality than VGA, and other Thunderbolt-compatible adapters for Gigabit ethernet. Acer calls these "Acer Converter Adapters" and does not support using any other kind but all of my Mini DisplayPort adapters work just fine.
If you're buying this for school students make sure you purchase Microsoft Office 365 Home edition.
