5 out of 5 eggsJust right

Pros: I got this for my wife(and a similar one for my parents) to replace her old Dell.

For her needs, running a small home business, it is just right. Lighter than her old notebook, yet a lot faster.

And, she was happy it was red(what can I say, she likes something other than basic black).

I had no issue loading the software she needs, from MS Office to Kaspersky. Wifi works great.

Overall, it good balance of features and performance for the price.

Cons: I really can't complain, and my wife hasn't, so it is all good.

Other Thoughts: Battery life is also good; she doesn't need to stay connected to the charger.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop

Pros: Great laptop for student. Streams video online and you get good bang for your buck.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Some bloatware needed to be removed.
Bought for a Graduation gift for my daughter and I cant pry her away from it. She loved the color and she watches alot of movies.

5 out of 5 eggsNicer then expected

Pros: Brothers, Sisters and I got this for Mom for a first laptop. It looks great and has a really nice feel. It may not have rocket speed but the performance appears to be pretty decent. It was nice to be able to find something new with Windows 7 so she would not have to deal with annoying Windows 8.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Shipping was super fast. It arrived the day after it was ordered. It does come with some bloatware but it is easily uninstalled. Great value!

5 out of 5 eggsSurprised

Pros: Sharp screen, great colors, soft and responsive keyboard, comfortable trackpad. Speaker is actually a speaker that you can use to listen music for a while, good quality and adequate loud. Oh yeah, Windows 7 is a huge pros. Do not believe the lies about the lies about bloatware, it has some but it won't take more than 20 min to remove whatever you don't need.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: This Laptop comes with Intel 1005M 1.9 ghz processor, newegg has it wrong for some reason. Do not be fooled with word Celeron. This CPU has 1996 CPU Passmarks and takes the rank 659 which is not far behind some core i3 processors. It's not design for hardcore multitasking, but it gets the job done for an average user.

5 out of 5 eggsLeery no more!

Pros: I used to be afraid of Acer products as all my previous dealings with their products ended badly. I was first impressed by the feel of the laptop. It is thin and light but feels solid considering the price range. FULL featured for its price point as well! There is no USB 3.0, but it's also not a listed feature and wouldn't be at this price. It does load very quickly given the stock 4GB RAM. I love the expanded keyboard. The screen is clear and bright. The built in webcam is pretty good at this price as well. I burned the system restore disks (5) in no time! I honestly can't say enough about this unit. I have owned gaming laptops, home/office laptops and other basic laptops. I don't know if it's the price vs. features, but none have impressed me like this one considering it is listed as a basic laptop.

Cons: I honestly have none.

Other Thoughts: I was under the impression that both memory slots were consumed with the 4GB installed RAM but there is only one memory card in my machine with an open memory slot. I will quickly drop $30 or less and grab another 4GB card to go to 8GB and this will be a FANTASTIC value! One last note: there is not that much bloatware on this computer. I had the junk I don't use off and windows updated in about an hour including installing Office and updates for it as well.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected

Pros: Inexpensive. Very sharp display with excellent color, brightness, and saturation--plenty good enough for viewing my photo and video albums. Slim, nice-looking design. Light weight. Big HDD for such a cheap laptop. Windows 7 64-bit (I hate 8, so this is a "pro" to me). Wireless connection and integration into my little home network was effortless.

Cons: Bloatware! Slow startup. Applications also launch rather slowly, but this was not unexpected. If I needed blinding speed, I'd have bought a more expensive computer. Things seem to run ok once they get started though.

Other Thoughts: I wanted a simple, cheap laptop to carry on an upcoming vacation, and I got what I wanted. It's actually a bit nicer than I expected for such a cheap price. Only time will tell if it is durable, but so far so good. Everything has worked perfectly so far. Super-fast shipping from Newegg, as usual. How do they do it? Do they have a secret warehouse in my neighborhood or something? Good double-boxed packing job too, so item arrived in mint condition.

5 out of 5 eggsI love it

Pros: I love this computer. It runs World of Warcraft on "high" settings, just a little choppy on "ultra". The webcam has a beautiful picture when skyping, no choppiness at all. I didn't think to check before purchasing if it had a numberpad, which was a huge point of frustration when my last laptop was missing it. I was ecstatic to find that there was one right there looking at me, begging me to calculate and type in numbers with speed. It's running WIndows 7, which I love, a huge upgrade from Vista and Windows 8 in my opinion. It has all the ports a girl could want, 3 USB, VGA and HDMI for all your external viewing options, a memory card reader if you can't find that pesky USB for your camera. Overall I love this computer and even suggested that my husband treat himself and pick up the black version. I feel that I underpaid for the equipment that I received.

Cons: I wish there were more USB ports, but that's just part of buying a laptop. I've never seen one at this price point with more than 3. Having the numberpad on the right caused the whole keyboard to shift to the left a bit, so I wasn't able to type for the first couple of days at any decent speed, but once I got used to it I was back up to my usual 50 WPM. The LED lights on the front right by the memory card slot are super bright and can function as a night light. I have the laptop sitting on a "over bed" type desk in my bedroom and charge my electronic cigarette off of it. Between the LEDs on my ecig and the laptop, there's no need to turn on any lights to see well enough to get to the door.

None of these cons are worth taking off an egg, they are more like minor annoyances.
