5 out of 5 eggsSeveral Unexpected Surprises, Good and Bad

Pros: Fast, quiet, light and cool. This laptop does way more work than i would expect for the price. The USB 3.0 and SD reader are good to have for peripherals. The screen size and aspect ratio are wonderful. You'd be hard-pressed to find other notebooks with 1080p screens for under 1 grand. This laptop runs nice and fast. After cleaning off the usual Acer bloatware, this runs almost as fast as my desktop with SSD. Internal speakers give very good sound quality. Did I mention, this laptop runs cool. Without running under serious load, there is almost no noticeable heat on the lap. Under load, only minimal heat.

There are also many unexpected niceties which are not mentioned in the description. Though it claims Windows 8 x64, this notebook actual comes with both Win7 x64 Pro and Win8 x64 Pro on a recovery partition. (This means you'll need 12 GB to create a backup disk though.) Keyboard is back-lit by white LED's, which is nice, though a bit too bright for my taste. Great extra function keys with back-light on/off and touch pad locking capabilities.

This laptop also looks nice with a metallic etched look on the top. It is prone to finger prints but still is a nice touch.

Cons: There were also several things which I have noticed, not mentioned in product descriptions, which could be better.

The key layout is a little strange. if you plan to use the arrow keys for gaming, they are only half the size of all the other keys and are a bit hard to use by feel. I'm sure one can get used to them over time, but it is a strange feel. In the same way, the full num-pad is nice, but the Page Up/Down, Home/End, and Insert/Delete keys are very strangely arranged. It will take some time to get used to the layout.

Also there are no lights or any hardware indicators for Caps/Num/Scroll Lock. You are left hoping that software indicators work (they stopped working after two days for me) and I have no clue whether Caps or Num-lock are engaged until i start typing. All the keys are silent except for the space bar which gets a bit annoying.

There is also no hardware wireless switch only software. This may not be a problem for most but it would have been nice.

Other Thoughts: First, let me say that, in general, i prefer reflective screens over matte, but the material which this laptops matte screen is made of can distort colors slightly. It almost appears to create a slight speckle effect. Not enough to remove an egg, and I am slowly getting used to it.

Overall, the problems with this notebook are minor and I am sure I will get used to them with time. The upsides which I wasn't expecting more then make up for the problems. I'd definitely recommend this laptop. It is extremely fast and and the 1080p screen is invaluable.
