4 out of 5 eggsPerfect for what I need it for

Pros: Great laptop to pick up on the go and play with. Can stand the Windows 8.1 problems, but an all in all good laptop for anyone who wants to just poot around on the internet.

Cons: The only con I have for the product are the hinges. About six months in, I noticed the hinges snapping when I closed the lid and sometimes jutting out when I closed it too fast. I remedied it with some fiddling and was able to figure out where the space and gap was and why it was doing it, I would not recommend the laptop for anyone who is a slammer or heavy handed.

Other Thoughts: Acer's always been a good product and I stand by their products.

1 out of 5 eggsShould have gone with something else

Pros: It's cheap, lightweight, doesn't overheat, clear screen.

Cons: There are so many problems with this laptop I don't know where to begin. First and biggest is the power supply randomly decides to stop working, sitting completely still suddenly the laptop thinks there is no power. Unplug it and plug it back in it's ok for a while. Also the trackpad is a huge disappointment and stops working at least twice in a day of use. I have to reboot frequently. Comes with pokki start menu which also takes a toll on the low power of this machine and takes forever to open. The keys are already worn down and I've only had this laptop 8 months. The track pad is also becoming too smoothed out. If you really need something try to get a higher quality product because this was not worth it even as cheap as it was. This laptop started failing out of the box and tech support was completely useless. They walked me through "refreshing" windows 8.1 but it did absolutely nothing. They had no other solutions.

Other Thoughts: I see the price is now over 300, I bought this at 270 and it still wasn't worth that price for the frustration it gives me.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop but difficult to upgrade

Pros: -Interface is smooth
-Trackpad is responsive
- Great laptop for school work or watching videos
- Decent battery life considering the price.
- Extremely quiet fan

Cons: - Internal battery
- Upgrading the ram is difficult and requires 20-30 minutes. Must take entire laptop apart to upgrade the ram.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my girlfriend and overall, I am pleased with my purchase. She loves the laptop and it meets her expectations for school and for internet browsing/ streaming videos.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat For Its Price

Pros: I've been using this notebook for 1 month now. Battery life is great. (8hrs max). The entire feel of the notebook is durable, it doesn't feel cheaply made, good quality plastic. The best thing I like about this notebook out of all notebooks I've owned is this one doesn't overheat. No matter whether you're streaming a movie, or browsing, the CPU doesn't take a massive increase in temperature. This notebook always stays cool. This is worth it.

Cons: None.

3 out of 5 eggsA mixed blessing

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Operating system and the unholy allegiance of some of the acer drivers

Other Thoughts: The problem I'm having with this laptop is windows 8 and the weird ways some of the acer software is intertwined, preventing me from deleting or accessing files. Every single application on that machine is trying to sent data of my usage to somebody else and it seems to be impossible to disable that I can't even prevent it from automatically logging into my wifi (other then turning the router off).

4 out of 5 eggsGood value.

Pros: Very good for the price. 4GB of RAM, plenty for day-to-day tasks - everything but high-end gaming or video editing really. Well built, slim. Good trackpad.

Cons: No removable battery - not unless you disasemble the whole thing anyway. Lots of manufacturers do this now and it's very annoying. This should NOT be a disposable item, the battery

should be easy to replace.

Screen is fairly low resolution - the standard inexpensive notebook screen.

RAM is not expandable.

Other Thoughts: Hey ACER - if it's possible to offer this for $250, could you offer the same thing for $350 but add:

A 1920x1080 (or higher) screen. Anywhere from 13 to 15.6 inches.

An M-SATA port to add a mini SSD.

8GB of RAM - or at least 4GB + an open DIMM slot so users could expand it?

If you could do that for $350 I think you'd have a real winner on your hands. I'd buy one.

One other note - there's no optical drive (I think they make this pretty clear) - but there is a bay for one. So a DVD-RW can be added, or an additional hard drive or SSD with an adapter

caddy (though I haven't tried this yet). The SATA port is present in the bay.

4 out of 5 eggsLike a tablet but a laptop

Pros: Good specs for its price
Surprisingly solid build quality
Surprising good battery battery life
Able to be a wireless hotspot
Speakers can be heard decently
Good line-out audio quality
Decent screen
Add-ons that actually improve Windows 8 usability
A webcam
Keyboard's alright

Cons: Low general upgrade potential/costly to upgrade(see other thoughts)
No operating system USB
McAfee anti-virus installed(and a few other bloatwares)
Speaker audio quality is somewhat low but passable
Lack of pronounced buttons on touchpad kills usability

Other Thoughts: The stock hard drive in a thin 2.5in drive, which greatly limits hard drive upgrade options. A bigger drive will not fit the mounting setup in the computer.

Even though the computer does not come with an optical drive, it does have the ability to add one. This means one could add an aftermarket optical drive or 2nd hard drive via a caddy designed to used that slot. One screw holds the place-holder piece for the slot.

The system is easy to breakdown, making most repairs or upgrades fairly easy provided you can afford them. The system basically uses a tablet motherboard and processor so the insides are surprisingly roomy. Essentially, your upgrades are limited to ram & hard drive, though. The ram is under the motherboard, btw.

The hinge covers will likely make any work or upgrades in the screen area a nightmare. Also, a potential break point to watch out of.

Overall, for the price, this a pretty computer, but it's going to need much more use/testing to see if it's really a solid purchase. So far so good.
