5 out of 5 eggsSolid Laptop

Pros: If you are looking for an office laptop or something to take when your traveling, this one isn't bad. It is not too much for gaming but for typing and research it fits the bill. Acer laptops seem to be among the most reliable on the market.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsJust what i need

Pros: for how much i paid, i have to say that i got more than what i thought i should have. i am able to play most games that are out on low to mid graphic settings. and i also find that the number pad actually being on the computer only makes it that much better for my gaming needs

Cons: wish the graphics card was more epic, but oh well thats what desktops are for.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat system

Pros: Great performance for the price. I bought 2, 1 had a defective dvd drive. RMA process went smoothly except for one small hiccup. They don't have anymore in stock and I had to get my cash back. Now I can't find anything that is as good a value as this system was.

Cons: The DVD players are very flimsy. Battery life kinda sucks. But with this much power under the hood that was to be expected. A 9 in 1 card reader would have been a nice touch.

5 out of 5 eggsGood work laptop for the price.

Pros: Works very well and stays very cool, but comes with more junkware than I'd like. Works very well and boots quite fast, idle cpu and gpu temps are in the mid 30s to low 40s. Somewhat weak at gaming, but can play L4D decently. Quite sturdy nice screen.

Cons: Very shiny lid, fingerprint magnent.

4 out of 5 eggsGood with a question mark

Pros: This is big screen and has a new generation processor, which is why I got it.
Overall is a good buy for $500 and I like the peace of mind provided by the Newegg policy, if that works, for getting money back if you find it somewhere else cheaper.

Cons: Could have used more hard drive space, 650GB at least.
I owned another Acer at some point and it had a nice design with a metallic finish, this one has a cheap looking blue plastic lid.
I got the blue screen of death.
I still don't like that I don't get the Windows dvd with it and only the option to back it up at the before using it.

Other Thoughts: Like a previous reviewer said, I also got the blue screen of death while trying to install the new video driver. The computer was untouched by other install/uninstall so this means it's not me, I didn't have the "chance" to mess it up. I don't know why this happened and I haven't tried it again, but I will and if I get a negative experience come back here to report it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Large ultra bright hd lcd screen, speedy processor with quad core, largd hd and sufficient ram to operate smoothly.

Cons: If any so far, is the heat on the bottom and it is heavier than 4 others in the house

Other Thoughts: With all the options for the price, this is a great buy. Dedicated video card, half terabyte hd, should do everything asked of more expensive machines. At 500 this is a steal, comparable Latitude was 639. It does get a little warm on the bottom and its heavy, but you can expect that with a 17+ inch screen machine.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Boots up fast.
Loads programs very quickly.
Everything has been easy and smooth.
Plays games and movies wonderful.

Cons: As mentioned, the bloatware. Unreal. Took a good 15 mins just to get rid of most of it.

Other Thoughts: My first Intel pc/laptop. Very happy with it.
As also mentioned, downloaded drivers and bsod. I deleted video drivers and re installed. Works fine
