5 out of 5 eggsMy first laptop

Pros: Runs graphic applications, and games respectably.

Cons: Came installed with Windows Vista and I didn't purchase late enough for a Windows 7 upgrade. Not that I didn't wipe and install Windows 7 anyway.

Bloatware games were really fun though.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this laptop in 06/2009. I never once considered replacing it or upgrading it because this thing made for a perfect mobile battle station for everything I ever needed to do.

Play games at a girlfriend's house. Yep.
Do graphic work on the fly. Yep
Watch movies in the car. You betcha.
Rendered Maya animations while I tweaked them on my main workstation. Oh yes.

I have used and abused this machine over the years and it has never once failed me.

Since owning this laptop I have come to love Acer products and trust them whenever I'm looking for the latest and greatest tech while on a budget.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid performance but not without issues

Pros: Perfect size and just enough power for what it was meant for; word processing, Skype, and Photoshop.

Cons: The webcam failed right at the one-year mark. The unit had also been experiencing some overheating issues. I understand that hardware failures can happen with units, and it seems I was one of the unlucky ones to receive such a unit.

Other Thoughts: It was a good little laptop for the price I had paid. I wished it would have lasted longer (in terms of the webcam). I had a 2 year Service Net Plan on the unit, but after being sent in twice, they never address the hardware issue with the webcam (which may not have replicated for them upon receiving). But, the plan was considered "fulfilled" after the second service order and they would not repair it again. This is in no relation to Newegg. Newegg always has the best service.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the Money

Pros: The specs for this laptop are top notch when considering the price. I've had it for just under a week so far and it has performed surprising well at everything I've tested.

Cons: The only 'con' that I've come across has been mentioned ad nauseum. The bloatware. It wasn't quite as irritating to me, but if I had purchased this and given it to my girlfriend prior to removing all the unnecessary garbage then it would have become a headache. I don't see that this merits me removing an egg for the review though. Seems like a lazy reason.

Other Thoughts: This was a replacement laptop for an old Dell and for the price (Plus free shipping, thanks Newegg) I still spent less then my girlfriend spent on her original. Not too mention that the specs on this laptop are close to double what she has been using.

4 out of 5 eggsHot Price/Deal, Hot Hard drive literarly!

Pros: Its small, light. Powerfull CPU+GPU. Decent size RAM and good amount of hard drive space.

Cons: After running it playing games, then feeling each spot on the back of the laptop then taking off the back panel to take a look. I have come to the conclusion as to why its so hot.

The hottest spot of all is the hard drive, the way the fan is set up, it will blow air from inside the laptop sucking from the hard drive area onto the cpus heat sink thus not cooling the heat sink at all but washing extremly hot air onto the heatsink.

DONT TRY THIS IF NOT EXPERT
My solution is going to be simple, i am going to make my own custom vents directly under the hard drive with a drill. So its going to have multiple holes so heat can soak out at a faster rate, at its current set up the plastic panel is just soaking up the heat and acting as a sweater with no real venting besides the cpu heat sink sucking up its hot air.

I could be wrong but i believe the CPU and GPU are connected to the same heatsink via a copper heat pipe, so both sort of run hot due to the hard drives abnormal temp

Other Thoughts: Some say the fan is really loud. On mine the fan is so quiet i cant hear it, i suspect thats a bad thing due to when the bio reconizes the heat level is unacceptable it kicks the fan into higher gear which makes more noise.

Mine on the other hand does not do this, i would have been okay with more noise.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat value, works fine with Ubuntu

Pros: Good value, well-supported in Ubuntu, much more solid feel than my old Acer (Aspire 3100.)

Cons: Small screen, but I chose the trade-off of weight vs. size.

Other Thoughts: Very pleased with hardware support in Ubuntu (setup for dual boot.) Wireless and media card reader work out of the box in 9.04. The "restricted" driver from NVidia will be offered after first software update and 3D acceleration works great with it. I haven't tried the headphone or line-in jacks, someone mentioned there might be some work needed there.

This is a pretty fast machine especially in comparison to my old Sempron-based system. Drive is a good speed too, important to me since I encrypt my partitions which adds some overhead.

All in all, recommended for someone looking for a relatively small and fast system at a good price.

4 out of 5 eggsLove Hate Relationship Leaning Towards Love

Pros: Specs are outstanding for a low-cost, all purpose laptop. I am an AMD and nVidia fan, and though this isn't a gaming laptop, the graphics have 256MB dedicated (much more shared of course) and nice sftw that beats the heck out of the cruddy Intel GMA graphics in so many low-cost laptops. Generous 320GB, 3GB RAM, EXCELLENT feeling keyboard with slight dips in the key caps which keep fingers from slipping off towards the neighboring keys for non-touch typists like me. LOVE the size of this laptop - I went from a 15.4 and was afraid I would miss the real-estate, but I don't even notice the diff and the machine is lighter and easier to use overall and just feels BETTER. Built-in webcam and mic, and apparent support for wifi N (on G and haven't tried that). Nice case and I like that the interior is not glossy because it doesn't gather oily fingerprints. A near-perfect machine with 2 (maybe 3) caveats... but they're significant enough to cost it an egg.

Cons: FAN NOISE FAN NOISE FAN NOISE!! This machine almost never runs without a fan going unless you sit and read a webpage and don't touch anything. And while the lowest speed is fairly quiet, the succeeding speeds are much louder, with the highest speed the loudest fan I have ever heard in any laptop I have ever used. Annoyingly loud. And it doesn't take much to get it there and keep it there. I was DL'ing OS upgrades and the fan stayed on at its loudest the entire time. It was so annoying I considered selling it. I am looking into undervolting and might also try to find a different, quieter better made fan, if anyone makes one. Also the TOUCHPAD is unusually LONG so it takes several swipes of the finger to get the cursor across the screen! I wish it had a calibration adjustment to compensate. The Symantecs settings don't to it. Finally, I am not sure this wifi card supports N even though it was advertised as such. I have G but Device Mgr doesn't show it as having N capability.

Other Thoughts: The front of this machine comes to a sharp angle making it uncomfortable to rest your wrists against. I roll up a towel to rest my wrists on. But the things I love about the machine (keyboard, nVidia, size, weight, case, features) make me want to find solutions to the rest. Some things I will just get used to, but the fan problem needs to be fixed. I won't live with that noise all the time. Also, the machine has vents on the bottom where it draws up cool air into the case, then shoots it out the back vents. So you can't place this laptop directly on your lap or a pillow.... it needs to sit on a hard surface. I place a coffee tray on my lap with a pillow under that. For what I paid $449 + tax and a free Win7 upgrade, I'll be happy when I fix the fan issue! I have a Tosh L305-S5933 & you can't hear the fan EVER! Vista probably makes this mach run hotter than XP would, but I'm waiting on Win7 to dump Vista or I woulda loaded XP. Anyway, aside from the fan it's nearly perfect.

3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you Paid for

Pros: Very nice System. Able to do everything I purchased it to do.

Cons: BIOS Selection: You really don't have many choices.

BIOS AHCI: One thing I had a problem with is in BIOS, the SATA setting was set to AHCI. Windows Vista Business wouldn't install with that setting turned on. You need to set it to IDE for installation.

BIOS Shared Video Memory: In BIOS you can only select between 64mb and 256mb.

Install & Recovery Disk: You need to use Acer's installed software on the OS, and create a Recovery Disk, and also a Driver Disk. I made both. It's a good idea to make both, so you have the choice of installing other OS's and just carry the software and drivers on a DVD or CD's.

Other Thoughts: If you need drivers for a different OS, or want to create your own custom CD (The Acer Driver Disk has a collection of Software that you may not need), goto http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/
You can choose a Windows Vista, and XP for both x64 and x32.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Laptop

Pros: Excellent Price. Solid Case and keyboard. Screen size is a good balance between portability and usability. The blue/black lid is a nice look.

Cons: Didn't worry about Vista and the other software. Just popped in the Windows 7 CD and installed very quickly. All drivers installed automatically except for the GPU. Windows 7 is a must have! Fan is a little loud at times (compared to my macbook) but is not irregular.

nvidia geforce 9M series drivers installed here:
www.nvidia.com/page/drivers

Other Thoughts: No better $500 laptop out there! Should have bought it while it was $430, ugh.
