    3 out of 5 eggsDecent build but a few problems...

    Pros: Feels solidly built
    Decent looking laptop
    Numberpad
    Good feeling touchpad
    Good battery life- lasts for well over 3-4 hours on a charge

    Cons: Runs like a potato:

    This would probably be my biggest complaint. You want to run a YouTube video and check your email at the same time? Think again. As another review said, the laptop gets very slow at times. It would seem that its disk usage is constantly hovering at 100%, causing everything to load very slowly. I found that the solution that worked for me (at least it has so far) is reformatting the machine with a clean install of Windows 8.1 This means having to get a Windows 8.1 ISO without the Acer bloatware. So far, it seems much faster installed this way.

    Other Thoughts: Also, I noticed from the reviews that this laptop seems very user-maintenance unfriendly. Holding my breath.

    I'm not sure if you can boot from external devices on this computer on UEFI mode. I installed my new Windows 8.1 copy under Legacy mode with secure boot disabled. As such it now no longer boots under UEFI.

    1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy this computer

    Pros: Nothing, this is a brick.

    Extremely difficult to upgrade RAM

    3 out of 5 eggscheap and slow

    Pros: cheap
    dedicated graphics
    Sturdy feel

    Cons: Slowest computer I have ever had right out the box. Takes a few minutes to open any program. Can't have 2 programs open at once or I feel the wrath of the computer. Since I have owned it I have installed a total of 4 items (League of Legends, Skype, Steam, Microsoft office), Only seems to be getting slower. Sometimes programs don't even open at all. Comes with Mcfee which seems to be a death warrant since anytime it does anything I can't even look at the computer or it just freezes. Not a fan of windows 8.1 which is the os that comes ready with the laptop.

    Other Thoughts: Honestly I would love this computer if it weren't so slow. Nobody else seems to have this problem so it must be my misfortune to have gotten the one that does.

    It being slow may not seem like a huge deal to some people but it makes me really mad when I'm trying to do anything.

    You will be able to get work done with this laptop at least.

    5 out of 5 eggsNice Buy

    Pros: Feels Solid in your hands
    Thinner than a lot of low end laptops
    Dedicated graphics
    number pad
    inexpensive

    Cons: I've only had it a few days, but I am still getting used to the touch pad. It is the type where the touch pad is one large button and clicking with two fingers is the same as right clicking. Two finger scrolling doesn't work all the time, I might just need to get used to it...

    Other Thoughts: I recently purchased an HP laptop of a similar price, unfortunately it came to an early grave because of an accident, but I like this computer much more. It really doesn't feel cheap.

    5 out of 5 eggsCheap Dedicated Graphics

    Pros: Cheap, its really cheap.
    dedicated graphics, nice keyboard and feels sturdy.

    Cons: difficult teardown - only the battery is easy access.
    I wanted to replace the hard drive with a SSD, so i had to take all the screws out, and pop off the top with keyboard and mouse pad attached. 4 ribbon cables, including one directly over the hard drive. It was not fun. Although, the cheap price outweighs this difficulty. No other complaints really. I wish it was more maintenance friendly.

    Other Thoughts: Overall a great computer. If your thinking of upgrading the hard drive, memory, etc. Be prepared to tear into it.
