3 out of 5 eggsThe best computer I've owned, when it works

Pros: - Dedicated GPU that's surprisingly good for gaming - I've had no issues with running GTA V at full speed with medium graphics settings.
- Great balance of performance and battery life
- Surprisingly good speaker quality for a laptop - The Dolby Digital really made it shine when using it to watch movies.
- Great quality screen - I don't do any serious multimedia work professionally, but I play with Photoshop and Premiere Pro

This computer worked great for everything I needed to do with it (note the past tense, this is explained in the Cons section). I've had no issues with any development work, running multiple virtual machines, multimedia work including video editing, and some gaming. For the sale price of $629 I got it at, I couldn't have asked for anything better.

Cons: - For the first month after purchasing, I dealt with the built-in Atheros wifi card continuously dropping my connection, an issue that persisted upon multiple driver installs and multiple clean formats and reinstalls of Windows. I gave up and bought a Broadcom chip instead, and still never got the same connection speeds I could get with other devices on the same network, which made me think the issue was motherboard related rather than the network adapter or software.
- Adding to my suspicions of the motherboard's quality, it later developed a new problem where typing too hard in a particular spot (around the T key) would instantly crash the computer, with "too hard" meaning normal typing pressure. As a programmer, this was infuriating beyond all belief. It turns out that a metal 'foot' on the underside of the keyboard in this spot had scratched away and exposed a copper connection on the motherboard, shorting it out whenever they came into contact. I remedied this with a piece of tape over both the 'foot' and the spot on the motherboard that was scratched, though the multiple times this happened may have contributed to the last two issues.
- Undeterred in its plans to infuriate me, it later developed an issue where it would power off in my backpack when left in sleep mode and refuse to turn back on. The power lights would come on and the fans would spin, but the screen remained off and the hard drive would click and stop spinning after a few moments, after which it turned off and tried again to boot. This problem could be fixed by removing the keyboard, which makes me think it was still shorting out somehow because it would then boot normally with the cover unscrewed and removed. It didn't do this often at all, and it's survived many other trips in a bag with no issues.
- The final straw occurred with the same problem as the last point, except that time it failed to come back to life. I didn't even get a power light or fans, either with battery or AC power. The repair cost would have been over half of what I paid, presumably for a motherboard replacement as it could not longer even charge the battery either. I'm opting for an ASUS laptop instead this time, rather than paying the repair cost for it to inevitably find a new way to break.

Other Thoughts: This is a very good computer. Really, it is. It handled everything I needed it to like a champ. I don't know if I'd buy it again though, and certainly not at the current price it's at now. I don't know if my issues were due to a manufacturer defect or because of clumsiness during all the times I had to poke around with its insides (which were purely to fix the problems it was giving me to begin with), but I later read that Acer is somewhat known for its reputation in failing laptops and low build quality. This died in under a year and a half. I can't entirely blame Acer as I should probably have gotten the thing looked at or replaced earlier on, but a design where the keyboard support 'feet' could scratch at and short the motherboard should never have been able to pass quality assurance in the first place.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Pros: I bought this laptop over a year ago to do some light gaming while I was on the move. What can I say it handles most of the modern games, I played the Star Wars Battlefront Beta on here medium settings the game looked beautiful and ran flawlessly. I play a lot of CS:GO, League of Legends, ran WoW just to see how it handled, BattleForge they are all playable on this laptop. Even a little Battlefield 4, now the settings weren't high but the game still looked great and ran smooth, so I was still able to play with friends while I was away from my desktop for over a year. Plus I upgraded to windows 10 without a problem i don't know if they come with windows 10 installed now a days.

Cons: The screen, glares can be a problem but it wasn't a big deal for me i just adjusted myself or the screen as needed to reduce it.

Other Thoughts: Great laptop I highly recommend it!

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.

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.
