Pros:

somewhat inexpensive. has decent graphics adapter.
Sending your laptop to Acer's repair place is free. You don't even have to pay shipping.

Cons:

Acer really should issue a recall on this device.

The wireless adapter stops working, whenever I use the computer for a few hours. The adapter overheats, and then the driver shuts the adapter down to keep it from burning itself.

I've tried to get this problem fixed twice, by sending it to Acer's repair place. They failed to reproduce the problem (because they didn't use the laptop like I do, so it didn't warm up, so it never overheated for them).

I am currently dealing with this problem by setting the adapter's output power to 50% of its maximum wattage (using the driver software features), thereby keeping the adapter from overheating. This is an unacceptable solution, and because it decreases my Wifi range and throughput.

SO WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
I think the real problem is that this device has a design flaw that lets the laptop overheat, but, only the wireless adapter overheats, because it is not designed to withstand the same amount of heat as the graphics adapter and CPU.

Other Thoughts:

Sending your laptop to Acer's repair place is free. You don't even have to pay shipping, but if they can't diagnose the problem correctly, you'll quickly find yourself sending your device to them over and over, while never getting it fixed.
