5 out of 5 eggsCouldn't be happier!

Pros: I bought this laptop entering my second year of college for homework and a little bit of side gaming. I find its specs to be great considering it's price. The screen is beautiful, 17.3'' of crisp resolution.

Cons: Nope.

Other Thoughts: Can play all my games on highest, including the highly popular Starcraft 2 ;)

5 out of 5 eggsGood purchase

Pros: Large display, decent hard drive space, decent amount of RAM.

Cons: Display was actually larger than I was really expecting, but this is a good problem.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I am very happy with the product so far.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for many needs

Pros: Excellent start up speed, and the screen is excellent quality as well (no cracking as described by some), was super fast to set-up. Had some bloatware, but was easy to uninstall. Overall this is an excellent deal, I've seen laptops with exactly the same specs close to 1000. Plays every game i throw at it, including SC2 on high settings with no lag!

Cons: Honestly none that I can think of! Battery life is a little low, but that's expected when you have a laptop this powerful.

Other Thoughts: Ok so I was completely honest, the track pad sucks (but does work) would recommend using with a mouse.

4 out of 5 eggsAfter 1 Month

Pros: You really cant beat the price for what you get here. Independent video card, good processor great screen. This should be able to handle more than your basic laptop needs for entertainment and work.

Cons: The speakers are seriously weak. Be prepared to use your headphones. Not a deal breaker though.

It can run hot. Especially by the top left where the video adapter is located. Consider a laptop cooling device if this bothers you.

Battery life is so so depending on the settings you have set up. Don't look for more than 3 hours of continuous use when gaming without headphones especially.

Other Thoughts: I'm still loving this machine. I'm really happy with what I got for the money. I don't see the sturdy build issues previously mentioned by users.

Great machine for the money.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop cheap parts

Pros: Good graphics card, the screen is great for watching movies since it is 17" and with the nice resolution. Ran newer games with ease.

Cons: The screen is iffy. Mine cracked with very minimal force applied, I was just adjusting the angle and bam it cracked. The touch pad isn't so good.

Other Thoughts: Using a wireless mouse gets around the messy touch pad. Overall it isn't so bad. Just be extra careful with it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop

Pros: This is a great computer. it has tackled everything that ive thrown at it, including some major designing programs such as the autodesk suites, and some games like crysis and cod7. just a great processor and a descent graphics card to back it. good job acer.

also the screen is amazing, a true cinima led screen on laptop = amazing

Cons: the laptop does run a little warm when running at high loads but really a laptop with this much power will run warm no matter how expensive it was so i didnt dock it there

Other Thoughts: The keyboard looks really nice, but looks like it could potentially be a dust trap so ill have to clean it often

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome laptop!!!!

Pros: For the price this laptop is unbeatable. plays killingfloor, medal of honor, NFS shift, smooth and without lag, even plays crysis 2, albeit with some lag but just the fact that it loads and runs that game says alot for a laptop in this price range.

Cons: when i first started the laptop it had an issue with the display randomly going black but i updated the display drivers on AMD's website and the issue seems to be resolved

Other Thoughts: regaurdless of other reviews nothing about this laptop looks or feels cheap. it even sounds good for a laptop. I mean come on guys its a laptop for petes sake. if your looking for a budget laptop that is capable of playing games (at low to mid settings mind you) than this is it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for a budget gaming laptop.

Pros: i5, 6550M is a great budget card, 17.3" screen.

Cons: Can get toasty, 5400rpm HD, no bluray.

Other Thoughts: If you need a dedicated card you can't beat the price, also @Brent i5 480M only has 2 cores.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Performs very well. Great processor handles everything running simultaneously. Good graphics and excellent video playback. Absolutely cannot beat what you get performance wise for the price.

Cons: This is a machine that performs and that's it. Absolutely no frills. Speakers are garbage. Everything is plastic and cheap/fragile feeling. Keypad feels a little awkward like something you would find on a toy computer, not a real one. I feel like I'm going to break the power jack every time I plug and unplug it. All the input ports are in a bad spot on the sides in the very front, exactly where you want to rest your hands or use a mouse. This is extremely annoying to me and I almost returned it for this reason. Doesn't come with a start up disc. Battery lasts less than an hour. Screen flickers occasionally.

Other Thoughts: This is an extraordinary performing computer at a very low price, so sacrifices have to made in other areas. Basically you get what you pay for. I have concerns how long it will last since it feels like it is poorly constructed and designed. But considering what you get for the price, it might be worth the risk.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Laptop

Pros: HUGE screen
Lightweight
Powerful
Its an ACER so you know it will last
Price (honestly can't beat this laptop for bang for your buck)
Looks (it is a very nice looking piece of equipment)
1GB Dedicated video memory, Awesome!
I love the keyboard, both looks and feel.

Cons: No Bluetooth

Other Thoughts: People have had heating issues with these as they can tend to get VERY hot especially in the top lefthand corner. I bought a Targus cooler for 17'' laptops and it works great! It was only $25 (on sale from $40), and definitely worth it, it keeps my computer nice and cool.
