3 out of 5 eggsAverage performance low-end gaming laptop

Pros: - Sometimes on sale for $529 - 549
- Arrived neatly packaged from the Newegg warehouse
- Thin and light; doesn't feel like 5.6 lbs
- Great sound with Dolby Digital Plus Home Theater
- Battery small and light, lasted 5 hr 35 min until 10% power. Used low brightness while browsing Internet/ watching videos
- Trackpad Gestures (two finger scroll)

Cons: - Computer feels slow. Not sure if issue is CPU, HDD or Windows 8, but sometimes the desktop doesn't show newly downloaded items unless I refresh. Simply typing in MS Word, Facebook or Steam lags. Opening Windows Explorer seems slower than it should be. After a week of using the laptop, I encountered freezing after singing in (wouldn’t load my taskbar) and after trying to shut down (had to rip out the power cord)
- Windows 8. I HATE Windows 8! Too many dumb "user friendly" settings that are the opposite, i.e. NumLock doesn't automatically turn on at startup unless you edit registry
- Eject battery mechanism is difficult if you don’t have long nails (gotta shove in there and pull the slider)
- Both USB 2.0’s on the right; I would have liked one on the left for my USB powered cooling pad fans on the left under the NVIDIA graphics card
- Trackpad off center towards the left. Easy to accidentally click something when your palm rests on it
- Keys are not very flat for a laptop
- Adapter port seems loose, but it’s not. Though the plug fits snugly, you can jiggle it up and down
- Right mouse click is less responsive than left; best to use fingers to tap trackpad

Other Thoughts: - League of Legends at medium character, low environment, low shadow, and low effects
- Left 4 Dead 2 at bilinear filtering, antialiasing off, medium textures, low shader and effect detail
- Dragon Age: Origins at medium graphics and textures, 2x antialiasing
- Outlast at high effects, textures, and shadow
- Fallout 3 at low settings (lags most likely due to incompatibility with Win 8)
- Bastion (no customizable graphics)
- Vindictus, which lagged badly no matter what setting; might have been Nexon servers being bad

4 out of 5 eggsExceptional Notebook!!

Pros: The GTX 840M in this machine is astounding. Just a quick example of what it can do;

I get an average of 55 FPS on Battlefield 4 on medium at 1280x768 on medium settings. I average 70 FPS at 1280x768 on low settings.

Star Wars The Old Republic I average 100+ at 1366x768 on high settings.

TES: Oblivion averages around 70 FPS at 1366x768... I believe it was medium settings. I haven't tried Skyrim yet, but I'm sure it will be more than playable on medium.

(All of the above was without AA of course.)

This notebook has decent boot speeds. It's not nearly as quick as a 7200 rpm HDD or an SSD, of course, but it's fast enough if one isn't picky.

The Wi-Fi worked perfectly out of the box.

The sound is actually pretty amazing for a notebook. I haven't owned many notebooks, but its sound is the best I've heard from one.

This laptop stays cool... even after an hour of Battlefield 4. I don't foresee much of an overheating problem so long as it's used on a flat surface and has the space to breath.

Cons: The 5400 RPM HDD is the biggest con for me. I'm spoilt with an SSD for my desktop. Obviously, there is a night and day difference.

The only other thing I can knock is the lack of a disc drive. I bought an external disc drive to go with it.

Other Thoughts: Consider a 500GB or 1TB SSD as an upgrade. I've ordered a 1TB SSD for an upgrade.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop bundled with bloatware

Pros: Solid specs on the laptop for the given price.

Cons: Comes bundled with a bunch of bloat you will want to uninstall immediately. Also comes with windows8 which is a definite downgrade from 7.

4 out of 5 eggsGood and bad ... mostly good

Pros: Very good price for a laptop with decent mid-level discrete graphics processor NVidia GT840M and core i5-4210U CPU, which is an ultra low voltage (ULV) dual-core processor comparable to older, slightly higher clocked i5 processors, but with more efficient power consumption.

Slim profile, light weight, decent screen for the price, good battery life, great price when on sale (under 550 ducats).

Cons: I consider this machine strictly a "Gamer Light" ... just because it has middling mid-level discrete graphics card does not make it a gaming rig. Rather, it can play some games on low to mid-level setting w/o bogging down. Oh my goodness! What a pain to swap out the HD, a royal pain, and don't even get me started on the memory chip, which is buried on the underside of the motherboard, ugh! Unless you are good with laptop tear-downs, do not get this unit if you plan on upgrading.

Other Thoughts: I just hate, hate, hate, hate with passion Windows 8, the most unintuitive, moronic software ever!!! .... ever!!! ...... grrrrrrr!!!!

2 out of 5 eggsAwesome laptop, minus one critical flaw

Pros: Amazing performance in this price range.
Great full keyboard, easy to type on.
Awesome specs for the price.

Cons: Screen colors aren't that impressive, very washed out and grey scaled. Not a deal breaker.
The touchpad has no working drivers.

Other Thoughts: When other reviewers said the touchpad is horrible, they weren't kidding.

There is no working driver for this touchpad for this device. The synaptics driver simply installs as a HID-Compliant Mouse, and you are unable to disable "tapping" and other settings. I thought maybe I was missing something and even spent a few hours with Acer's tech support. I was wrong, they told me the same thing I have already tried, such as reinstalling their synaptics driver Multiple times. The synaptics driver sure shows up in the device manager etc. But there are no files in program files, nor the Icon in the lower right of the start bar.

I can deal with a little lack of responsiveness in a touchpad. But the fact that there is no working driver and you can't disable "tapping" or any other mouse settings kills it for me. There are many people with this problem on the official Acer forums and across many more..

5 out of 5 eggsWow!

Pros: This laptop has blown me away!
At $529, I jumped at it as I saw that it had plenty of RAM AND a dedicated graphics chip! This laptop plays a lot of my favorite steam games at high settings at well over 120+ FPS. Needless to say, this is an amazing laptop if you're on a budget and you are a small-time gamer.

Cons: Screen resolution was decent, but not as good as I expected from Acer. This is the only flaw that I've found so far.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing laptop for the price

Pros: Good overall build, good quiet low power processor, good GPU, good fast RAM

Cons: slow HDD (5400rpm) but it's not that much of a problem

Other Thoughts: To everyone having issues with the mouse: I disabled the synaptics driver and it now works beautifully. It's under Human Interface Devices in the Device Manager. There is also another option you should uncheck: right click on I2C HID device and where it says Power Management uncheck the box that says "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".

Did those 2 things and now the touchpad works really well.

1 out of 5 eggsWi-Fi didn't work

Pros: NIce Keyboard. The Laptop itself felt solid. Decent Screen for what it is. Very fast when plugged into ethernet

Cons: Wi-Fi didn't work. Even after uninstalling drivers, reinstalling, downloading new ones off Acer's website...nothing worked. The laptop is useless to me without Wi-Fi. Also, Windows 8 is a very frustrating experience. Even after you figure out how to get around on it, just seems like a bunch of unnecessary nonsense.

Other Thoughts: Very disappointed to have to send this back. For the price, I was really excited about what I was getting.

1 out of 5 eggsWi-Fi Doesn't Work

Pros: Very fast when connected to Ethernet. Keyboard feels Great. Screen is good for the price. Overall feels solid.

Cons: Windows 8 is frustrating even after you figure out how to get around. Never was able to get the Wi-Fi working. Tried uninstalling drivers. Downloaded different drivers. Never got it working. Sending it back. After lots and lots of research, this seems to be a known issue for Acers

Other Thoughts: I just wanted it to work, loved what I was getting for the money. Very disappointed to have to send it back.
