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.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Light, fast, easy to use. Long battery life. I use this for school and gaming during my downtime when I'm not at home and it's more than adequate, I've yet to have to charge it while I'm at school.

Cons: Oodles of bloatware, but that feels so standard with any sort of pre-built system these days. Also, the touchpad can be, well touchy at times, but nothing too annoying.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat Computer, Terrible Wifi

Pros: For the price, this makes a great mid-range gaming machine. 8GB of RAM, a processor that reaches up to 2.7 GHz without overclocking manually (some Acer software causes it to amp up as needed) and a hefty 2GB nVidia card to go with it.

Plays most games at decently high to middle settings. Not really a monster gaming rig, but can't beat the price.

Cons: Two things:
The Atheros Wifi adapter is absolute trash. It would work anywhere from 5 minutes to two hours at most, then cease all connection activity while remaining connected to the Wifi network. This menas that one would need to manually disconnect and reconnect to the Wifi in order to reinitialize the connection; sort of a painful thing to do while in the midst of gaming. I updated the drivers, both from Acer and the Atheros website, attempted using the generic Windows drivers, all led to the same thing, and I noted other people having similar issues as well.

The amount of Acer bloatware is also an issue, but nothing some uninstallation and CCLeaner cant fix over the course of an hour or so.

Other Thoughts: Would have been even better with an SSD. Windows 8 feels a bit sluggish without the near instant-on/off that most SSDs provide.

Was going to look at swapping out a SSD for the 1TB HD, but looking into returning it due to the Wifi issues.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the Price

Pros: Great specs for a $550 laptop, great for all things including light gaming.

Cons: Somewhat slow loading times, but only if you are picky with that sort of thing. No DVD drive, and low screen resolution.

4 out of 5 eggsBang for buck

Pros: price
power consumption
solid build quality
actual graphics card

Cons: not much. I will say the amount of bloatware on this is pretty obnoxious to say the least. but after some install that's not really an issue.

4 out of 5 eggsCheapest laptop with th 840m. Btw, 4 eggs cause i always read 4 eggs reviews first

Pros: Fast i5 4210 ultra-low-volt get the job done and run with a very little heat.
NVidia 840m that will run LOL max out at 1388*720 in the next three years.
Decent looking with aluminum cover (the white arts in the picture).
Super impress built-in speaker which is awesome for movies and games.
Long battery life (2 hours of running FIFA World at max setting)
Good keyboard. Feel nice when I'm typing in this right now.
Quiet than any laptop that I had seen(probably because of the i5 u chip that doesn't require high power pan).
8 GB ram that can cover any things I throw in this laptop.

Cons: Touch pack is really horrible. It usually does not response when I use the right part of it, only the middle and the left part work. (It does look good thought). The screen color look worse than my old laptop but it's acceptable. And I had to reset the intel color setting because somehow, the wrong setting turn human skin to red. That is two only con I could think of right now after weeks of using it.

Other Thoughts: I bought this and plant to use it in the next four years of college. I looked for a budget laptop that have the core i5 u chip and a avenger nvidia card to do some gaming in the next few years and this came up at the best choice after a whole month of research on Craiglist, Slickdeals, and Notebookcheck. This is actually the first time I shop at Newegg, so I was worried a bit, but the laptop came in good packing. However, I don't think it should take 5 days long to ship something from California to Oregon. The 840m in this laptop should be able to help me play LOL in high setting in the next 4 years. The laptop looks great with aluminum cover. Some comment said that this is fake aluminum, but I think this is not fake because I owned a Acer with fake mental looking before and I noticed the different. This laptop even doesn't get hot or loud when I play Dragon Age, so I think it will never get hot (unless you put it in a blanket). One funny thing about this laptop is because the build of this laptop amplify sound, the pan get louder that make me thought that the hard drive is broken. I mean core i5 u shouldn't have a pan at all like my uncle's Surfaces. All in all, I'm very satisfy with this laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Laptop

Pros: Very fast computer
8GB of RAM
1TB hard-drive
I5 Processor
For this amount of money its a steal would highly recommend this laptop for a lot of people.

Cons: Lot of bloatware... but what laptop now a day don't have bloatware.
No CD/DVD drive but who still uses those USB flash drive is way faster and more reliable.

Other Thoughts: This laptop is a really good buy after spending a few weeks comparing laptops im glad i chose this one. a lot of complaints about the screen people were saying but it looks amazing and is super comfortable for typing the keyboard is the best. If i could pick one complaint it would be that the touch-pad is really not that responsive, but i use a wireless laser mouse so it don't effect me.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: It woks great for the price. It runs quiet and cooler than my previous laptop. It boots up nice and fast. It's thin and feels sturdy. The keyboard is very nice with the keys sufficiently spaced.

Gaming wise I can run WoW at 60FPS at fair/high settings. LoL should run fine on this. Heros Of the Storm runs good.

Cons: -Lots of bloatware that I needed to uninstall, but that was easy.
-The power button looks cheap compared to the rest of the laptop, but that detail is pretty trivial.

Other Thoughts: Great laptop, and I'm happy with my purchase.
This is my first time using Windows 8.1 and it was awful right out to the box. Installing Classic Shell, and tuning it for performance, quickly fixed all of my problems with 8.1.
No dvd disk drive can be a problem for some, but I hardly ever need to use one so it's not a problem for me. Getting an external dvd drive is always an option.
I wish I had the money to put an SSD in it, that's a future upgrade.
