I use my laptop mostly for browsing the web (Firefox), email (Thunderbird), listening to music (iTunes), word processing (Word), Dropbox, and some very basic spreadsheet additions in Excel. It handles all of those great! I want to say what my uses are because that's what I can really speak to the use about.
This laptop can run many programs and handle multiple websites pulled up with no troubles. I did have a bunch of programs open the other day and when I opened Dropbox it had a bit of trouble playing music when I'd open a new website--the music would skip for a second. That's the only problem I've had. I closed Dropbox and it stopped. That doesn't usually happen. I rebooted and opened iTunes, Dropbox, Firefox (with multiple tabs open) and Thunderbird and it didn't happen again. It hadn't happened before that ever, but I would not be honest if I didn't mention it.
If you listen to music with your laptop, you will HAVE to have external speakers. I already did, but when I unplugged them once, the sound from the laptop is way worse than from my iPad speaker. It sounds GREAT coming through speakers, though, so it's just the speaker and not a problem that the laptop isn't capable of playing music well, because it certainly is. I went in knowing the speaker of the computer wasn't good, so I wasn't surprised by that.
I adapted to Windows 8 very easily. There are still some things I get flummoxed by, but once you've messed with it for a couple days, it's pretty easy. To contextualize, I'm 46 and have been using Windows since 3.1, and I am doing fine. I like using it with an external mouse rather than the touch pad, but I'm like that with any laptop. I disabled the touch pad. The only bad thing is that there is that if it's not enabled and my external mouse goes down for some reason, because there's no on/off right at the pad itself, I keep a corded external mouse so I don't have to turn the touch pad mouse back on. Since it's a touch screen it would be much easier to turn back on without an external mouse if necessary, though, than one without touch screen. Some people put in their reviews that it's hard to turn the touch pad mouse off, but it was really easy. I pulled the right hand toolbar out with my fingers (touch screen activated) and hit search "mouse" and found it quickly.
I love that it's a touch screen, and now because this laptop is, and my iPad is, I find myself reaching to touch my work laptop's screen all the time. I am looking forward to when Zagg makes a protective screen cover for it just so it doesn't get finger marks on the screen. I won't use any screen cover that isn't put on by liquid and removable, and I would recommend against using any other type. The screen doesn't hold fingerprints like I worried it would. It seems that it does less so than an iPad based on using my iPad before I had my Zagg protective cover, and when I use friends' iPads.
It's very fast, and I love that! I really recommend this laptop very highly. I've read it's not good for gaming, and I can't speak to that, but for my uses--email, iTunes, browsing (I always have many sites open), word processing, etc., it's the bomb! I love it! It's great!
You are getting an HD touchscreen display, a very fast set of processors, and excellent graphics at a bargain price! We tried several other Ultrabooks, and really, the performance between this and other costing twice as much isn't noticeable unless you are a hardcore gamer.
If you want something to work on Master's thesis on, play Dvd's and Blueray movies, play some moderate games, and program visual software like Python, or Adobe Captivate, this will meet all your needs.
The touchscreen is brilliant and works fantastically. It does take some getting used to the new Windows platform, but once you use it a couple times, it becomes innately intuitive. It comes with a giant microfiber clothe to clean the screen with, which is a nice touch. I like that you simply press the power button to power down, and when you power back up, it comes right back to where you left everything. Where ever you left off on excel, word, or in your web browser, all that comes right back. All your software doesn't have to shut down to power down your PC any longer. What a coupe! I also love the Office in the Cloud. You can log on to your Microsoft profile anywhere, and your documents all follow you, as well as your entire Windows 10 settings.
You may look at the mouse pad and wonder where the left and right click buttons are. They are still there. You just click the bottom right or left side, just like there were separate buttons, and it works.
The battery is tiny, and attaches to the base between the screen and the body in back. Battery life is acceptable, especially given the small size and weight of the battery. It seems to hold up for four or five hours of continuous use. It makes owning more than one battery and switching them on the fly really easy, as compared to any other design!
In addition, the overall weight and size is great! It weighs less than half of the old laptop, and is maybe just under an inch thick in total? With the swept in edges and super thin screen, it looks even thinner than that!
What's really impressive is that it stays so very cool on your lap. It doesn't get warm at all. You can hear the little fan power up to keep the internal nice and cool, and it keeps your lap cool too.
This laptop is a screaming buy at this price. You will not regret buying this machine!
I always configure my computers for Windows/Linux dual boot, and Acer has never given me trouble with this scheme. I use Linux 95% of the time, but I also need Windows to work reliably the other 5% of the time.
So I got the laptop, and it was pretty slick, but Windows 8 turned out to be the operating system from hell. Windows 8 is a glorified version of Windows 7, but it's loaded with bloatware and features that I couldn't care less for. I'm pretty intuitive with computers and technology, but I wasted the first 10 minutes figuring out where the START button and "Control Panel" were. I got passed this, and then the computer started hanging/freezing, and Windows Update didn't even run with a wireless connection or with the Ethernet cable hooked up to it. Twelve hours after dealing with worthless Windows 8, I decided I had enough and returned the laptop.
I don't understand how Microsoft can release such a weak operating system. This reminds me of the Windows ME debacle back in the late 90s, except that Windows 8 is worse! When I tried backing up the OS right out of the box, the system asked me for a 16GB USB. I was surprised!! 16GB for what? Pure junk? I remember the old days when the OS came in a single CD/DVD; however, this is still the case with Linux, a nice and slick OS that fits on a single DVD.
One thing I didn't like about the laptop is that it didn't have an embedded RJ45 connector for Ethernet, and instead it had an HDMI to RJ45 adapter. Other than that, it looked pretty good.
