Pros:

Very cost-effective, good laptop for average use (office, surfing, etc.).

Cons:

UEFI / BIOS boot options are horrible. Comes with Windows 8 by default, and is set in UEFI mode. This precludes any booting from anything other than the Windows Boot Manager. Switching over to BIOS mode (legacy mode) will let you boot from any device you like, however, the windows partition is now unavailable. I suppose this is done for security reasons, but it prevents any kind of maintenance should there be problems with Windows. As a computer service provider, my customers come to me to get these things fixed in a cost-effective manner. With this laptop I will now have to tell them that the only resort is a more expensive Windows reinstall. Not good.

Other Thoughts:

I like the minimalistic simplicity of the acer laptops. Aside from Macbooks, they are my preferred Windows laptop -- no extra doohickies and buttons all over the place. Bare necessities. Nice.
