5 out of 5 eggsWorth its weight in Gold

Pros: This laptop has an i5 processor, 8GB RAM, 1TB storage, and a dedicated graphics card with 2GB of video memory, and a touch screen which works perfectly with Windows 8.1. And with that battery life? Wow, what a deal.
I couldn't be more pleased with the speed and versatility for the price I paid. At the time and price I paid, it was/is comparable to gaming laptops that cost a few hundred bucks more. And with that battery life? Wow, what a deal.

Cons: Initially, Windows 8 was a con for me. But after getting to use it in its latest rendition (8.1) with a touchscreen, I am sold. Makes for a nice computing experience.
The only real cons I have are the bloatware that has become so standard with pretty much all OEM images and the 5400rpm HDD. The bloatware removal process is rather easy and takes just an hour or two to remove it all and install basic software to fit your needs. The 5400rpm HDD is not so easily remedied. It honestly can't save that much power and manufacturing cost to be worth it over a 7200rpm HDD. Just a tad bit insulting.

Other Thoughts: If you are a faithful Egg head, you will know that you can get a high end brand SSD with 120GB storage on sale for as low as $65~. Couple that with a cheap $20 caddy and you can move your OS to the SSD, place your HDD in the caddy and stick it in the open DVD drive slot and have a very fast laptop with lots of storage. Get this laptop on sale and get the SSD. You'll have no complaints then.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good but time will tell.

Pros: Relatively fast laptop. Boot-up is usually pretty fast. I use it mainly for school and gaming. It does the job. I play LoL at 60-80fps maxed out (but then again LoL is not a very demanding game graphically). Touchscreen is really necessary for the Windows 8.1. I was also able to get this when the price was $659.99.

Cons: Structural integrity is in question here. 6 screws have unscrewed from the bottom of my laptop. I'm dreading the day this thing decides to fall apart. I only started noticing that they were coming off when I started finding screws around my house.

There's also no light or indication that the Caps Lock is on.

The speakers are located on the bottom of the laptop so if you have it against a desk or bed, the sounds will be muffled. Design flaws?

Other Thoughts: I recently switched from a Macbook 2009 so I haven't used much of Windows. That being said, OS X is much more responsive in terms of mousepad, and touch (in comparison to iPhone/iPads). My 2009 Macbook's trackpad was/is much more intuitive and responsive. (I miss the Apple trackpad gestures.) The material the Aspire V's mousepad has sometimes makes your fingers stick when you're trying to drag scroll with the mousepad.

Sometimes the cursor will disappear when switching from touchscreen to mousepad and the only way to get the cursor to come back is to close the program you have up (happens A LOT with Chrome.)

So overall, this laptop is a good but the way it was designed is questionable.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid laptop

Pros: - Aluminum body feels sturdy
- Dedicated graphics card (able to run ESO on medium/high & WoW on high @ 30-60 fps)
- Touchscreen is a must for Windows 8
- Cheap! Picked it up for $659.99. Not sure why it is $899 now which sucks for future buyers.
- CPU never exceeds 65 degrees while gaming.
- Keyboard isn't as bad as people make it seem. Easy to keep clean compared to most other laptops

Cons: - Trackpad is meh. I use a wireless mouse though.
- It's not 1080p but I doubt games would run very well in 1080 with the 840 anyways.
- Annoying bloatware.

Other Thoughts: Overall worth the 650 I paid but not the 899.99 it is now. Hopefully it will go back down soon. Very solid laptop though and I would recommend it to friends and family.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Machine for the price

Pros: First off the specs are very good for the price I paid ($599) for this machine. The touch screen is very responsive and has not missed a beat. The resolution is fine for a 15 inch laptop. (1366x768) It may not be extremely crisp but everything is perfectly clear and readable. The viewing angles are not great but are passable for this price range. As long as you are sitting in front of the screen and not off to the side you shouldn't have any problems. The Geforce 840m is a great choice for casual gamers on a budget. Combined with the Intel i5 it is a powerful machine for the price. I am able to play almost all of my games on medium (some high) with at least 40 FPS (War Thunder, LOL, Starcraft 2) For a 5400 RPM hard drive this thing is pretty snappy. (After the bloatware is removed - more on this in the cons)

Cons: The track pad has a very strange surface to it. It is very sensitive and I found my fingers often sticking against the surface inhibiting my ability to accurately point the cursor. However this can easily be bypassed with a wireless mouse. The bloatware on this thing is horrendous. It took me a solid two hours to completely remove all of it. I am well versed in the windows environment so it was no problem for me to remove everything. But a lower skilled individual might find this task a little daunting.

Other Thoughts: There is no CD/DVD drive in this machine which isn't a bad thing, Discs are being phased out and will eventually go away. I would have liked more than one usb 3.0 port but at least it has the one.

I was hesitant to finally make the switch to Windows 8 but I am very surprised at how good it is. If you are an avid Windows 7 user then Windows 8 will feel like home but in a better neighborhood. Anything you are used to in Windows 7 is here in 8. I don't even look at the start menu/metro side of things, you honestly never have to leave the desktop if you don't want to.

The only other thought I have about this machine is the keyboard. All of the keys function perfectly, but they have a very cheap plasticy feel to them. There is not a lot of weight to them but this may just be that I am not use to them yet.

I will update later if I run into any significant problems.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid. but a little rough.

Pros: First off let me say I really like this Laptop, it has a lot of great features, and the Gt 840m is better than nothing. just do not expect to be playing games on high settings. Minecraft is passable. It does have some hick ups playing larger files.

Cons: No back light at this price point its silly not to.

no Dvd/cd though you can install one my unscrewing one screw. if you can find one.

Horrible horrible wifi. it may or may not work on your router. even though the device manager says its an qualcomm atheros ar5bwb222 its an Anatel which is not cool. I suggest just getting an intel replacement.

Other Thoughts: The unibody design on the bottom makes opening this guy up a little harder. switching out the HDD or wireless card or other component does take a bit of work.


will update after more use.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Computer for the Price!

Pros: -Dedicated card!
-Touchpad is Excellent (Though, I use a mouse more it's probably the only touchpad I haven't minded at all)
-Touchscreen is amazingly responsive
-Pretty snappy laptop even without a SSD.

Cons: -None at all (See other)

Other Thoughts: I managed to get this when it was on sale for 599.99 (Everywhere else had it at 650-699). So getting a laptop with a dedicated card for SOME gaming in the range I purchased it in was a great value.

Windows 8 might be a con for others, but I went in not knowing anything of 8.1 other than it was much different than 7 (My gaming desktop is Windows 7) and I have to save I prefer 8.1 now to 7 so long as you have a touchscreen.

All in all, I bought this because of the i5 and dedicated card (Wanted to do some gaming while attending college) It runs everything I want it to, sure, it's not maxed out but I can still game with manageable framerates!

5 out of 5 eggsVery decent computer for the price

Pros: Decent specs for the price
Capable video card (don't expect to drive a 1080p monitor for this price, but at native resolution, it's pretty peppy for mainstream games)
Nice build quality
Responsive touchscreen
Touchpad is solidly built
Battery life is excellent

Cons: Nothing I didn't know coming in:

Lots of bloatware. Like, LOTS.
Windows 8 - I fear change
Wifi seems a tad sluggish
Display suffers from poor viewing angles.
No optical drive - I just assumed it would have one, should have double-checked this.

Other Thoughts: Generally very pleased. This is my second Acer - I previously had a cheap netbook that I was quite impressed with. Exactly what I was looking for in a desktop replacement - speedy enough for basic tasks, a discrete video card for some gaming, and a decent-enough keyboard. Touch screen was an unexpected bonus - I have used it a lot more than I expected to.

5 out of 5 eggsVery happy with this machine

Pros: Runs WoW on high setting at 55-60 FPS and Ghost at 60 FPS touch screen is pretty cool too. Machine seems to stay pretty cool for the most part with 2GB video card, 8 GB of RAM, and 1TB HDD defiantly the best value available

Cons: No CD-ROM but bought an external for $20 easy fix

Other Thoughts: Great machine best value available
