This review is from: Acer Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition VN7-791G-792A Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 4720HQ (2.60 GHz) 16 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 256 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4 GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit
Pros: Screen, SSD, good customer service. I messed up the OS first night in and tried a restore which crapped out. Called Acer and they emailed me a fedex label and I sent it in to be restored and was impressed by the very quick turnaround. Thank you, Acer! Setup was a breeze using my M$ account and Firefox sync. Minimal bloatware easily removed and the backlit keyboard makes typing in a dark room easy.
Connecting to my WiFI was a breeze and the connection is solid. I saw none of the problems others have claimed.
The touchpad is responsive right out of the box and is easily adapted to as the whole pad can be used as right or left click rather than two dedicated rockers at the bottom. I like this better.
It is FAST with a boot up of around six seconds and multi tasking does not seem to slow it down. Games and large photoshop files are handled easily.
The sound is good for a laptop and loud enough to game or skype but I will use external speakers for the additional bass that I prefer.
The understated looks are a plus as well, it looks professional rather than gaudy.
Cons: No scroll strip on touchpad. Will have to get used to using arrows.
Other Thoughts: Very happy with my purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Auto Upgrade
Other Thoughts: My nexus upgraded to Android 4.4 KiKat last week. Works well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Would have been 4 stars if I didn't have to send it back for a faulty audio jack bu am amazed at how fast this thing is compared to Windows 7 and 8 on computers that have much more power. Great tool for internet and email and fits in many jacket pockets and the sound is surprisingly clear for such a small product with or without ear buds. Videos are sharp and clear with no stuttering or stopping and as an old geek I am amazed at how ready for prime time this tablet is.
Cons: I had to send it back for a faulty audio jack which they returned fixed in short order but it still cost me for insured postage.
Other Thoughts: Used for email checks, tethers to my phone for constant access when on the road, easily links to WIFI in restaurants and pubs and the Chrome browser is quick with great voice search capabilities. FAST!READ FULL REVIEW
