4 out of 5 eggsNot flashy, but really good

Pros: Bought when on sale for ~$550 and it truly is a great value given the components. Been using for 7 months without any real complaints. It's lightweight, well made, and has a long battery life. The display is pretty good for the price point and I really like the feel of the keyboard. The sound quality isn't the best, but it's better than a comparable laptop I've had for a few years.

Cons: I don't like Windows 8.1, particularly without a touch screen. I also find that my battery gauge is woefully inaccurate and my computer often shuts off when it is supposed to have >45 minutes of life left. I suspect this is due to the fact I'm regularly charging it outlets of different voltages, given I'm moving between the EU and NA all the time. The touch pad isn't the best, but using a mouse is an easy enough solution. As other owners have said, the lack of a SSD hurts and I'd replace mine if I wanted to get serious about PC gaming at any point.

5 out of 5 eggsJust Right

Pros: Love the i5 and the GeForce 840M for the money. Bought this for my daughter and she absolutely loves it. Over a year old - no isuues even though she is on it constantly. The 1TB HD is such a bonus considering all of her music, pics, movies etc.

Cons: None whatsoever

4 out of 5 eggsHMMmm...

Pros: it started as a functional laptop, everything i hoped for

Cons: the hard drive failed in about 6 months. the road was slow and painful as it coughed and sputtered for 2 months. having a hard time getting acer to do anything...

Other Thoughts: if the hard drive hadnt failed i would be very happy. working with Acer has been difficult so far, if that changes, i will update. also i paid about 400 bucks for this laptop around a year ago.... from newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Laptop

Pros: I got a refurb at an amazing price. Having said that I'd have paid full price considering what I got. We all know the spces I5, 8GB RAM, 2GB GeForce 840m with a 1TB HDD etc.

The I5 is nice, it's fast, efficent and more than gets the job done. This thing plays new games at decent quality (e.g. Far Cry 4) at a decent rate. You will have to tweak settings a bit but it's worth it. Screen is nice for what it is. However the HDMI port allows you to connect to a nice 1080p monitor/TV. The aluminum look is well done. The keyboard is nice, spacious and well laid out. The laptop is very light and easy to carry it feels solid. The unit I've got runs cool approx 25c - 35c with the GPU at 45c+ at full load. The WiFi has presented no issues what soever in the month+ that I've had it.

Cons: It has to be said the one major con is the mechanical hard drive. It's slow, it's big (which is good) but it's so horribly slow. It's pegged at 100% for the first 10 or so minutes after it starts. No updates being downloaded/installed. The likely cause are services running in the background. I dumped it for an SSD and the problem was solved.

If you plan to upgrade the HDD or the RAM be prepared. There's no panels under the laptop to remove for easy access. You have to remove all the screws on the underside of the laptop then very gently pry the plastic keyboard/upper case away from the lower case. Once done gently open the case and carefully disconnect the three ribbon cables. Now you can access the HDD. If you want at the RAM, remove the motherboard and you'll find it on the other side. Yes you have to tear your laptop apart to upgrade the RAM you better be happy with 8GB or skilled with electronics.

Other Thoughts: I dumped the mechanical drive in favor of an SSD that was on sale here at NewEgg. 240GB of SSD later and I'm on my desktop in approx 10 seconds. My programs and games are loading at light speed. That empty optical drive bay has been filled with a HDD caddy carrying the slow mechanical drive as additional storage. I really couldn't be happier with this computer.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of junk

Pros: Fast computer. really did everything needed from it since it was just for school

Cons: WIFI does not work correctly at all. It's constantly breaking and not working. DO NOT GET THIS ONE. After looking into it seems alot of 572G's are having a wifi problem.

5 out of 5 eggsA month later

Pros: Display: The display looks good even though people seem to be complaining quite a bit about it.

Keyboard: Keystrokes are amazing, it types well enough.

Graphics: This can run Planetside 2 at between 45-60 FPS on medium to high setting with shadows off. I play mostly older steam games and nothing more current than Civilization: Beyond Earth

Audio: Sounds are excellent, though I rarely use the onboard speakers as I have both Bluetooth and headset speakers.

Overall: The laptop runs well, the disk drive does not make noise and startup is above average. Great graphics for the price.

Cons: Does get a little hot.

No CD-Drive but this is more inconvenience than a con.

Other Thoughts: I was looking to get a different laptop but had to settle for this one due to supply issues. I have been more than satisfied with this purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsReally great laptop for the price

Pros: I've only had the laptop for a few weeks now but it runs great.
- Packaging was fine
- Setup was fine
- The specs allow me to run LoL on Max settings with 60+ fps, I can even run Far Cry 4 on High settings with a little bit of lag. I run Far Cry 4 on low though for 60 fps.
- Battery life is good (around 6-7 hours when just web browsing and around 3 hours for hard gaming)

Cons: - Touchpad is a little clunky, but I use a mouse anyways
- Acer Bloatware (Easy to take off with CCleaner)

Other Thoughts: I've only had the laptop for a few weeks now but it runs great. I searched everywhere for a better deal and for these specifications this laptop is the best you can get for this price. You may think that since the CPU is clocked at 1.7 ghz it's not the greatest but it runs games great.

5 out of 5 eggsPower plus Portability

Pros: Power
1. Solid graphics card. This card will run all games several years old with ease and many games being released today.
2. The 8 GB of memory is enough for 95% of users.
3. If 8 GB isn’t enough the Aspire is upgradable to 16 GB.
4. Overall feels very fast and responsive.
5. Has Windows 8. Unlike many people I consider that an advantage. Windows 8 is more secure, is less resource intensive, starts up faster, and has many other advantages to Windows 7. If you hate the new start menu than install do what I did and install Classic Shell. That way you get the best of both words.

Portability
1. Battery life is excellent. This was an unexpected surprise with this laptop. Typically I get 3-4 hours under heavy usage and 5-7 hours under light to moderate usage.
2. Makes much less heat than most laptops.
3. Very quiet for a laptop. I can’t hear it unless I put my ear right against the keyboard.
4. Separate number pad on keyboard is a nice extra.

Cons: 1. Plenty of Acer bloat-ware.
2. Keyboard feel isn't as good as most laptops. Keys are softer so it is harder to tell when you are pressing them.
3. In bright light screen shows a lot of glare.

Other Thoughts: here is no CD drive. If you need CD access you will need to buy an external USB CD drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop

Pros: 2GB Dedicated Graphics Memory
Pretty nice CPU for the price
Sturdy build quality
Extremely long battery life
Very fast WiFi card with Bluetooth and 5GHz capabilities
Very nice speakers
See Other Thoughts

Cons: Low screen resolution (1366x768)
"Microsoft Precision Touchpad," not a regular Synaptics one
Dummy ODD drive is not 2 part
I think my "NVIDIA GEFORCE 840M" sticker is slightly crooked, not too far, but enough to make me wonder if I'm crazy
EXTREME AMOUNTS OF BLOATWARE
See Other Thoughts

Other Thoughts: Some people might have a problem with the screen resolution, but I didn't feel it was a reason to take an egg off. The 840M performs realy well, and can play games like Black Ops 2 or Battlefield Bad Company 2 on almost max settings, but pales in the face of games like Far Cry 4. GTA V will be a tough cookie to crack for this one. This computer is really good for light gamers or performance enthusiasts. The bezel and palm rest area is made of what looks like brushed aluminum, and is pleasing to the touch. The lid cover is made out of plastic that is supposed to match, presumably to cut down on the weight factor. However, these surfaces will attract dirt and grime like no other, and the light color will let it show, so make sure that you carry a screen cleaning cloth with you to touch up on it every no and again. The battery should last well past the quoted 7 hours. I am pleased with this laptop and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a really nice laptop without breaking the bank. This thing runs really cool, like a maximum of 64 degrees Celsius under full load. Also, I would recommend downloading the "GeForce Experience" from Nvidia: it will help you keep your drivers completely up to date and will even tell you some settings to run your games at for optimal performance, which isn't always spot on. I notice on Battlefield Bad Company 2 that it showed me settings that would result in about 30fps, which is low for that kind of game. But that is still considered playable, so I suppose if you do not NEED 60fps constantly then the recommended settings will do fin. All in all, you can't go wrong with this laptop. If you wanna check how this thing operates, check out Game Debate, search a game, and enter the specs to see a pretty accurate analysis of how it will run some games.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: Good display, weight feels just right, good specs. If you have the money, swap in an SSD. The computer can really let loose without that 5400 RPM HDD holding it back. Battery life is excellent as well. After installing an SSD, 6 hours of Netflix only registers about 40% battery drain. This is going to be great on those cross country airline trips.

Cons: Not maintenance friendly at all. The Acer engineers definitely didn't consider users wanting to install aftermarket parts. There's no access slots for...anything. Rather than a removable bottom, the screws actually hold down the bezel for the keyboard and mousepad. Lifting up this bezel is how you gain access to anything, and it is connected to the mainboard with 4 extremely short, extremely fragile ribbon cables. Needless to say, getting at anything on the inside is a very delicate, very time consuming operation.

Also, the lack of an optical drive means you'll need a USB flash drive to run any kind of boot-time HDD cloning software should you make the switch to an SSD.

Other Thoughts: This laptop isn't bad at all. It's got great specs, and is only held back by it's absurdly slow hard drive. Even Windows 8, which I originally considered a con, is actually growing on me, even without a touch screen. Overall, I'm satisfied with my purchase.
