Acer 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Clear Screen, Full HD, Fast CPU and decent amount of RAM all in all there is very little to complain about the Hardware for this price

Cons: A HUGE PAIN TO DOWNGRADE, part of the reason I am doing this review is because of the amount of work it took yesterday to do this. Acer has made it clear they want you to use Windows 8, which, without touchscreen worse than vista was, You are probably thinking I don't know what I am doing but know this,
1. You will have to get the Windows 7 CD
2. change the boot mode from UEFI to LEGACY
3. Convert the HDD Format from GPT to MBR
4. Install Windows
5. Change boot mode back to UEFI

Also there are no clear guides out there on how to do this.

Other Thoughts: If you are prepared to spend about 6 hours cleaning this computer up like another reviewer mentioned It will be worth buying, until then Id recommend a laptop with Windows 7 or a manufacturer who Isn't trying to prevent you from Downgrading from the *****est OS so far
