Exceeds expectations 08/20/2013
Intel i7 2.2 - 12GB DDR3 memory - 1TB hard drive - 17.3" Full HD (1920 x 1080) - NVIDIA GeForce GT 760M w/ 2GB GDDR5 VRAM - Blu-ray Disc/DVD±RW DL - webcam - Wi-Fi - Bluetooth - HDMI - USB 3.0
Difficult to roll back to Windows 7, second HDD caddy not included.
I think that all Win 8 configured laptops will have this same problem, but rolling back to Win 7 is not as easy as I though it would be. Difficult, but certainly not impossible. After about 2 hours of searching I finally have all the hardware working properly. In particular, USB3 drivers were difficult to find.
Otherwise, I cannot say enough good things about this laptop. Specs speak for themselves, but what the specs don't tell you is that this is an attractive laptop that performs beautifully and is very quiet. For the money, there were only two other laptop that come close - ASUS and Gigabyte each have a model in this price range but the Acer comes out on top for value for the money.
Other than rolling back to Win 7, I added a 128GB SSD and this monster really screams. Boot time is about <10 sec. to desktop. Video is bright and crisp as well.
Overall, I don't think you can go wrong with this unit for under $1250. I highly recommend the V3!
