Pros:

Excellent specs for the money, built-in graphics are actually more than adequate. 14" is the largest size you'd be able to comfortably carry around with you. Side vents prevent the laptop from getting too hot while sitting on your lap, and even the $1100 MacBook doesn't have them!

Good quality webcam.

Cons:

Battery life under real-world situations like 80-90% brightness while surfing sites like YouTube is about 3.5 hours; even under light use it's about 4-5 hours. Because battery life was my primary reason to purchase this laptop over others, -1 egg.

Too much bloatware! Doesn't matter if everyone else does it; it doesn't make it OK! I decided to install a clean copy of Windows 7, and just reinstall the drivers from the Acer's website, and now everything's alright.

There are no included recovery disks, you must burn all four of them yourself.

The trackpad is too small; I keep running out of room as I move my fingers across it. Increasing sensitivity doesn't help because the trackpad becomes too inaccurate. The multitouch features aren't anywhere near as well-developed as those on my friend's MacBook, to the point that I simply disabled the multitouch features that I was so excited to use.

Annoying glossy screen, quiet speakers, and weak microphone.

Other Thoughts:

The appearance is merely OK; the outside cover gets too many fingerprints on it, but looks nice nonetheless.

I know I've really bashed this thing, but it's only in the interest of giving you guys a TRUE idea of what this laptop is like. The 5 star reviews are really misleading when the real thing is just "alright".

Intel's new line of CPUs is coming out soon, with AMD's competitors on the way. If you can survive with the clunker laptop you have now, I suggest you do it so that, in a few months, you can get a laptop with the new CPUs, and thus, better performance and battery life for the same price.
