1 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely horrible

Pros: If this machine didn't fail after only 2 months, I would be more willing to write down the pros.

Cons: It is absolutely ridiculous that these days a laptop cannot go more than 3 months without having some sort of critical error, I do not appreciate burning my hard earned money on a product that will die out only a few days later. This is Acer, a manufacturer that I used to believe was quite decent. I've used their laptops before, which is why I decided to purchase this one. Big mistake.

Other Thoughts: So I am on the Acer tech support website, filling out the request for a system repair. After spending a lot of time answering all their stupid questions, I get close to finishing. I take a simply break to take a picture of the problem so Acer has something to use as reference and what happens when I return? My request has "timed-out", meaning I had to go through the whole process again.

Seriously, a time-out period on a system repair page? Yeah, no. I'm not going through that bull again, I will keep my broken system and they can keep my money. I thought Acer was a decent company, not anymore. I will never purchase any product with the name Acer on it again, they can all go screw themselves. Way to not only make bad, piece of shoot products, but also also slap clients trying to do the right thing.

2 out of 5 eggsCannot connect to 5GHz band wireless!!!

Pros: It's light. The price is reasonable. Battery life is pretty decent

Cons: It is slower than expected considering it is i5!. Also, I have a d-link router that allows me to set up two networks (2.4GHz and 5GHz). I am able to connect to 2.4 GHz fine, but 5GHz is not recognized by the laptop. Why???? It just doesn't make sense to me why they will make a laptop that won't allow me to connect to a faster network! If any Acer tech support can help me, please let me know!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value laptop

Pros: Upgrading HDD and RAM is easy
Full 10-key number pad
Big screen
No CD/DVD drive
No extra hot keys on the keyboard

Cons: Keys are nearly too far apart.
External connections are inconveniently located. They are all on the left or right side, and are near the front. When I plug a wired mouse in, the cord interferes.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded to an SSD after I received it and it runs beautifully. It only requires one screw to access the RAM and a second screw to remove the HDD.

Before you make any upgrades, you can make a system restore drive with a spare USB stick and the built-in ACER software.

Bloatware on the notebook wasn't too bad, compared to others I have experienced.

I bought two of these notebooks, one was for my 70+ year old mother. She's been using it for the entire summer and she likes it a lot.

I altered Win8 to make it look and function like Win7. It's very easy to do when you research the net.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop.

Pros: Size - The size of this laptop is absolutely perfect. Not too big and not too small, really sleek design, and very light.

Keypad - The keypad is awesome. Keys are nicely spaced in between and very smooth tapping makes a great keypad for fast typers.

The i5-4200u isn't the best but it's decent for a dual core. Can play some first person shooters and other games at a pretty decent fps, however expect to turn the graphics down to min-mid range, and keep it well ventilated.

Noise - VERY quiet.

Pressure pad - Excellent. The tough pad is rather large however very comfortable to use, and not too sensitive. I feel like I have a lot of control with it.

Good WiFi. The download speed seems to be capped at 2.5mb/s, but other than that it's very responsive.

Cons: No DVD/CD tray.

Plan on buying an external DVD drive if you need it.

No direct voice chat jack. There's only one jack for headphones and no jack for microphone. That's pretty bad.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking to buy a good laptop that sits in the range below quad core prices and gaming prices, I would definitely recommend this one. The integrated graphics could be a little better but I didn't really buy this for gaming, however if you do decide to game a bit it's playable except for high end modern games. Plays older games well.

Throw another 4GB stick of ram in it and you're good to go. Make sure you buy the appropriate RAM type, and don't mix timings or speeds. I recommend buying another ADATA 4gb stick since that's what it comes with. I bought a 4gb G.Skill 8500 stick and it wasn't compatible, and wouldn't boot.

Would give it 5/5 if it had mic jack and DVD tray.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat For The Price!

Pros: Lightweight and it processes fast enough for the price. The screen is bright and the sound is OK. Num pad on the keyboard is a plus. Large hard drive for storage is great. 4GB of RAM is OK, but will be buying an additional 4GB soon. Windows 8 works well enough after you install the 8.1 update.

Cons: The battery life isn't great. There's a fair amount of Bloatware that needs to be removed. The touchpad is way too sensitive. I had to disable click on touch and just use the buttons as I was constantly moving and clicking things when typing.

Other Thoughts: I would suggest immediately downloading the Windows 8.1 update. For those of you who miss Windows 7, try downloading Classic Shell. It will give you the old Start Menu back and it works like a charm.

1 out of 5 eggsVery unhappy sound failed @ 5 months

Pros: Price design and performance

Cons: Hardware failure

Other Thoughts: The sound has failed in the built in speakers at 5 months. Acer tech support tells me I have to blow away everything I have installed (a LOT!) on this computer to determine for sure if it is a hardware problem. I'm not willing to lose several days re-installing everything, so I guess I'll use external speakers on this piece of junk. Don't buy an Acer!

3 out of 5 eggsGood but display could be better

Pros: Relatively powerful and inexpensive. Relatively lightweight and slim profile.

Cons: 4GB memory, needs 8 GB for many powerful applications. Somewhat slippery and hard to carry. Biggest beef is washed out display, though you can go to control panel to the intel video chipset advanced options and adjust the color. No DVD tray, but knew that.

Small but lightweight battery should have been 6 cell

Other Thoughts: Need to replace HD with SSD and add at least 4GB low power CAS 9 memory

3 out of 5 eggsNice computer, Nasty Windows 8

Pros: Computer as equipped is the best value for money I could find after 3 days of searching
Super fast delivery

Cons: No cd/dvd drive built in so software install is not easy
Windows 8 is the worst OS I have ever seen,

Other Thoughts: I bought this computer as a backup to a much more expensive (4x) Asus laptop. It would be a 5-egg rating except for Windows 8. The app-like programs that come installed are next to useless and make multi-tasking impossible.

4 out of 5 eggsreview part 2

Pros: see my original review

Cons: see my original review

Other Thoughts: As a follow up to my original review, after upgrading to w8.1 I noticed it was taking a lot of time to shut down and the power up was greeted by a windows message indicating a crash etc... The shutdown was sometimes 10 minutes, during which it was not even possible to restart the laptop. Long story short, a lot of time wasted downgrading to w8.0, re-installing from scratch etc... finally the 'crash' bug was always there (linked to some unsuccessful preparation w8 does to speed up the boot, I think) -- W8 being so horrible and the laptop so frustrating with that bug, finally I had to install W7. To save time for others who want to do the same, it seems that you need to remove absolutely all the partitions otherwise w7 will not work. W8 does not play nice with others. Don't try half measures, only a complete wipeout will succeed. You will find all the drivers for W7 on Acer's site, fortunately. If this rig wasn't for the spouse, I'd have put Linux 10 times sooner, [w complete reformatting] and I'd have saved many hours trying to salvage a windows install. bottomline, great hardware at that price, horrible OS. I egg removed from my original assessment because the shutdown crash bug will happen to others, I'm sure.
