Acer Laptop Aspire V3-572G-543S Intel Core i5 5200U (2.20GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD FHD NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Inexpensive
- Light weight
- Backlit keyboard
- Supports Win 7 and 8
- Large touchpad

Cons: - Keyboard backlight times out after 30 sec on battery. No way to adjust this. There should be a way to keep the light on.
- Terrible touchpad. The entire pad is a button, so the pad feels loose and rattles every time I tap it. It's bad by design.
- No CD drive, and empty drive slot (plastic spacer) still takes up space.
- Terrible frame design. I had to disconnect 4 ribbon connectors to swap out the hard drive.

Other Thoughts: My biggest complaints are the flimsy touchpad and the keyboard light timeout. Acer could fix both issues at minimal cost which makes them all the more annoying.

Lenovo 2-in-1 Notebook Flex 2 15 (59418262) Intel Core i5 4210U (1.70GHz) 6GB Memory 500GB HDD 8GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 4400 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - HD screen
- Backlit keyboard and no driver is required for the keyboard light.

Cons: - Bad touchpad as mentioned below
- Function keys are reversed. To get F1, I need to press Fn+F1. By default, F1 mutes the speakers. I had to go into the bios to switch back the function keys.
- A little heavy. I had a Vaio with similar features. This laptop is noticably heavier.
- Screws under the keyboard. I had to remove the back to swap out the hard drive and needed to remove the keyboard first to get to the screws.
- Windows 8. If you dislike the Metro gui (like me), you can install Windows 7 or Classic Shell. Lenovo provides Windows 7 drivers for this laptop.

Other Thoughts: For the most part, this is a good laptop for the price. The touchscreen seems to be a waste since the laptop does not fold into a tablet. My biggest complaint is the touchpad. They combined the pad with the buttons, which makes the pad and buttons worse. The pad feels loose and can be unresponsive to double taps and the mouse cursor may move when clicking the buttons. I've used other laptops with the same touchpad design, and they all have the same issue. It's just a poor design. Also note the touchpad is just slick plastic, so any moisture on your fingertips will make it difficult to use.

On a side note, a previous reviewer mentioned the Lenovo whitelist. This list only applies to wireless cards. I swapped out the OEM hard drive with a SSD drive. Other than a small bios change (set Boot Mode = Legacy), the new drive worked fine.
