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.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding value at "that" price

Pros: light, very fast, good build quality, numeric keypad
big display, very small battery pack yet good capacity (4-5 hours?)
hdmi -

Cons: windows 8.0 [which makes it almost impossible to load Linux]

Other Thoughts: A shopper asked: does it have touchscreen or not?
No, it doesn't.
note importantly it doesn't have a dvd drive

5 out of 5 eggsSupports more Memory that listed

Pros: Nice notebook for the money. Came with 4 GB of memory, has a hard time finding upgrade memory. Took a chance on the Acer chat site, here is the actual chat message:

Helika Sumi: Michael, thank you for being on hold. I appreciate your patience.
Helika Sumi: I have checked the information for you.
Helika Sumi: As per our resources, your computer is upgradeable up to 16GB SODIMM DDR3 1333/1600.
Helika Sumi: It has 2 DDR3L Socket.
Helika Sumi: The Support DIMM voltage is 1.35V.
Michael Dunn: I purchased the notebook from Newegg and it says the max is only 8 GB. just want to be sure before ordering more memory.
Helika Sumi: The support memory size per socket is 2GB/4GB/8GB.
Helika Sumi: The maximum memory is 16 GB.

I took a chance that the chat was correct. I ordered G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GRSL from NewEgg. The laptop does support 16 GB of memory. Initially I put in both dimm's and the laptop didn't boot up. Took one dimm out and the laptop booted up without any problems. Powered down the notebook and took the 8GB dimm in the right slot and move it to the other slot and then inserted the other 8GB dimm. I'm kind of impatient and I believe it just took a while for the BIOS to recognize the new memory. My notebook running with 16GB of memory without any problems. loving it!!!

Cons: Didn't come with an internal DVD R/W optical drive, but my USB DVD drive works fine.

Other Thoughts: Had no problems upgrading to Windows 8.1 (free upgrade), also downloaded a nice utility called "Classic Start" that give you a start button in windows 8 for people like myself who still like the windows 7 start button feel,
