It came with Windows Eight, I hate windows eight with all them stupid apps like your cell phone and all them apps don't work anymore, I try turning them own and I am unsuccessful! I have been playing with window programs since 3.1 and I don't know why Microsoft would throw out there easier format for this crap. I know this is not the fault of the computer, but it is the platform it came with and I hate it!
My Bluetooth capabilities have cease to work, I tried readjusting it, resetting to default settings, even uninstalling and reinstalling and still it ceases to work. It worked initially and why it doesn't now, I am truly lost! I have built pcs in the past, installed windows myself and worked all the bugs out, so I am computer savvy, but no expert, usually I can resolve computer errors, but not these and I would expect somethings to go wrong in year three or four but not this soon.
My keyboard is starting to malfunction, my r doesn't work every time and it feels funny, so eventually it will break, my old Gateway done this in year four, not the first year I owned it. My enter button feels stiff and it will break soon and the keyboard will have to be replaced, it's all these substandard parts Acer uses.Read more ›
I had a Gateway prior to this one and although it only lasted about 2.5 years... it was smaller. Ultimately that had a fan issue and it was prohibitive to replace even though the part was low cost... I HATE, HATE, HATE trying to repair laptops and it proved me right once again... but that did not stop me from buying another.
i will say that many years back I was a top end ThinkPad loyalist... until Lenovo took over. I would prefer a $3000 laptop, but let's face it - no matter what you buy you are looking at a 3-4 year realistic life on a laptop if you actually travel with it. That and they take much more punishment due to the heat and lack of cooling ability in the small space.
That said, this one has fabulous graphics for the business or casual user. A serious gamer would not be thrilled, but I am. I sell and support accounting software, and want to watch a Netflix streamed in a hotel room a few times a year. I also require quite a lot of storage room for client files and databases (I run SQL developer, multiple instances) on here. It's perfect.
They all seem to be going to the flat keys these days, which is an adjustment - especially since I hook all three of my computers up to a KVM and am used to a more ergo keyboard. however the spacing and 10 key on this are great for on the road... it's just an adjustment from a standard type keyboard layout of course.
UPDATE 4/8/2014 - I have used this laptop for almost 6 months now, not as a full time machine but several times a week.Read more ›
