4 out of 5 eggsCannot add second drive on this model

Pros: Fast processor, Beautiful graphics and I love the keyboard.

Cons: I purchased with the intent of adding a SSD drive as the boot drive and moving the drive that came with it to a secondary drive. Well you can't do this with this model the 2638 which is available in Australia now supports 2 drives. The specs state it will support one or dual drives but that is in general for the 8950G but for the 9839 the mobo doesn't support the second drive eventhough there is a bay for one.

Other Thoughts: I did purchase a 128 GB SSD and cloned my HS and installed it before i found out I couldn't use the 750 GB HD as a secondary. I still love the system and the SSD boots up almost instantly. I will only use it for applications and use externzl devices for data. It does have esata and USB 3.0 interfaces for faster external transfers.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop

Pros: I've been waiting for Acer to re-release this laptop since the the Sandy Bridge recall. Well I'm not disappointed at all. The screen is beautiful and the speakers are the best I've ever heard on a laptop. The wireless problem has been taken care of by Acer. I will add a 128 GB SSD drive next week.

Cons: 5400 RPM harddrive but that will become a secondary drive shortly.

Other Thoughts: Just a beautiful entertainment machine.

1 out of 5 eggsbad battery and slow HD

Pros: Big and bright screen. Nice keyboard.

Cons: Really short lived battery. Last less than two hours after a full charge and normal usage (web browser, HD movie and microsoft office). It also bears the restarting problem as other Acer's lappies, often dead after goes to standby mode. More likely a problem of the circuitry design than software. The hard drive is another big problem. Only 5400rpm, it surly drag the whole thing when you are trying to play a HD movie.

Other Thoughts: Happy to be one of the first to play with it. But very disappointed. The slow HD defeats all the other expensive stuff. The short lived battery is the true killer for an otherwise good desktop replacement. What a pitty!
