5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Speed
10 key

Cons: I always move the mouse with my fingers because of the trackpad.
Graphics are nothing to write home about, but that is expected.

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend this laptop to anyone. I love that Acer is trying to get greater market share so they are selling their laptops for less than they should

5 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop for the price!!

Pros: Super fast. Very thin. Keyboard layout is nice. Nice to have a 10-key again. Great affordability.

Cons: 3 USB ports; i'm use to 4. One speaker on board instead of the normal two. 320Gb seems small to me anymore. I have all my programs that I normally use and I have used up more than half of the storage space.

Other Thoughts: This laptop is all-in-all a great deal. Bought mine for 549.99 and free shipping. Upgraded to 8Gb of memory and will eventually replace the 320Gb harddrive with a 750Gb 7200rpm WD.

5 out of 5 eggsUnbeatable Value!

Pros: Good luck finding an i5 for $550, no tax and shipped for free, anywhere else. Although I'm seeing that the price is now $699. I just made it! The screen is very good, but not great. "Great" screens aren't cheap. This thing is SUPER fast.

Cons: None as of yet, although some people may think it's not built as strong as others, and they'd be right. But again, you have to look at the big picture. For $700 (the price right now) I may look at other options.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat computer for $550

Pros: -i5 processor is blazing fast and haven't noticed any lag when switching between applications.
-4GB ram is plenty for me (primarily stream videos, download music, listen to music, and schoolwork)
-320GB hard drive is amazing, still have about 280GB free after downloading a couple thousand songs and multiple apps.
-Screen bright and clear, no dead pixels or anything of the sorts

Cons: Battery life not as good as I hoped but normally have it plugged in so its not the big of a factor.
HDMI output is a good feature, just haven't figured out how to maximize the settings between the tv and the laptop yet (still working on it though.)

Other Thoughts: This is a great laptop for the price. Looked for over a month to try and find one of equal value with the same spes and couldn't find anything. Very good, lightweight, and very powerful computer. Acer just got themselves a new loyal customer!

5 out of 5 eggsThumbsup!

Pros: Worth every penny.
Battery life is good for the size of the monitor, 4+ hrs (turn wifi off to get even better batt-life)
The screen is clear and acceptably viewable from an off-angle. (not extreme angles)
Textured finish hides finger prints well.
Overall, the build quality and performance is good, --acceptable for a <$700 unit.

Cons: Sound quality is less than expected. (headphones work fine and "fix" that complaint)
Crapware. (uninstalling doesn't take long with a little research to be sure of what it does)

Other Thoughts: Keeping this in context. A $6-700 laptop will not compare to a $1000+ rig...or to a multi-grand gaming setup, etc. If you need a military grade unit or a dual-vid-card, HDDx2 gaming unit, this is not for you.
In context -You get a big screen, DVD, full keyboard w/num-pad with true laptop performance for the price of an upper-end net book.
You're gonna pay more (and should be expected to) for blu-ray, high-res screen, SSD, vid-cards, alum/titanium case etc.
If price remains below $700 ($600 would be better), this is a good deal. Get it!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop for the price

Pros: This is a great laptop for the price, the i5-460M is running about 16 Gflops in Intelburntest. The screen is bright and sharp for the lower resolution (1366X768). Longer battery life than I expected at about 4.5 hours for browsing the internet, youtube videos and programming (C++/Python). It runs very quiet and cool except...

Cons: the DVD drive is a little noisy but I don't use it much either.

Other Thoughts: The issue concerning a "broken right speaker" stems from the fact that there is not right speaker. There is only a left speaker and it does exactly what I would expect a 1" speaker to do. Be audible from a few feet away and not much else. If you need to listen to your music or watch movies and that little speaker doesn't do it for ya, get a decent pair of headphones, Newegg carries a lot of them.

Pros: Awesome computer.

If you keep getting blue screens, nothing is wrong with the computer. A program that you installed is not 64bit compatible so I suggest you get Windows 7 32bit.

Pros: Got the replacement without spending a dime on shipping.

Cons: Same old story, broken right speaker and blurred screen. But it is slightly better on the laptop monitor, but not acceptable for using external monitors. I was wondering whether they just took my replacement, held it a few days and shipped it right back to me. Should have made a mark somewhere they couldn't clean.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a good computer. This is not for you.
