5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the $

Pros: Ivy Bridge Pentium, slim profile, great specs for $280 on a full-sized laptop in April 2014. At this price you're usually stuck with a Celeron or AMD E1 garbage. Keyboard is good, not great. Easy access (one screw) to the HDD and RAM.

Cons: No optical drive, slightly flimsy case but hard to complain for the price. Standard, slow 5400 rpm hard drive. 4-cell battery but keep in mind this is a low-power unit (2117U is rated at 17W TDP). Decent amount of crapware to uninstall.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand the other negative reviews for this laptop (assuming it works). It's a cheap $280 Acer that will do what most people need: internet/email, skype and office. The Pentium 2117U is on par with the older Core 2 Duo mobile Penryn chips (at half the power/TDP) which is still fast enough for the above mentioned items (Windows 8 score of 5.4). Swapped out the slow hard drive for an SSD as everyone should do. This makes a world of difference. First boot the computer and make backup recovery disks then swap out the HDD. Contrary to another reviewer, my laptop came with 2 RAM slots, one of course had the 4GB of RAM in it and the other was empty but had the receiving slot fully intact (i.e. not just solder points). My unit was made in November of 2013. The UEFI BIOS will NOT prevent you from installing another OS. You have the option to revert the BIOS back to Legacy mode (press F2 on startup to enter BIOS). Read the manual!

1 out of 5 eggsBe Warned! Misleading specs.

Pros: Very cheap via the Black Friday Special

Cons: Specs state RAM upgradeable to 8GB - Major memory configurators all state 8GB or 4GB x 2 slots. Problem is there is no second slot! solder points are there but never installed. Unsure if it would recognize a single 8GB stick but decided not to chance it.
No optical drive - I missed that in the specs but it is listed as none. Very disappointed. the Aspire line has always been good but this one not worthy of the Aspire label IMHO

1 out of 5 eggsAcer will sell you a damaged laptop and try to make you pay to fix it.

Pros: Not Applicable

Cons: Arrived with a scratched screen despite being sealed in box. Contacted Acer and after several days they told me that it was "cosmetic damage." They wanted me to pay to return it, charge me to repair it, and then charge me to have it shipped back to me.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little Acer

Pros: Very light, Nice keyboard setup, I even like the touch pad which is very odd for me. The speed is not to bad considering the price. Was very easy to install windows 7 Pro 64Bit.

Cons: Only major con is it only has 1 memory slot so if you want 8GBs will cost you a little to upgrade. Minor con is of course that its running windows 8.

Other Thoughts: You can install all but 2 drivers with there driver disc you can make. The other 2 require you to look on net since acer now does not release windows 7 drivers. It took me less then 10 minutes to get both so should not be issues for anyone.

Atheros 10.0.0.225 Just google both and can get easy.
USB 3.0 Intel
