Pros: Well The screen is big sharp and bright, the lap top looks sharp(when clean),battery life is way better than i expected @ 3.5-4 hrs. The speaker bar with the dolby software was a huge surprise!!!:) it sounds like surround I dunno how they do it? the camera is sweet so is the mic :) the price was a definite plus (even though I got mine as a gift :))
Cons: Acer support ..The people are friendly and all but, I talked to 2 support people using online chat and 4 support people on the phone and not one of them knew what Direct X was how can that be?in addition none of them save one even understood shared ram.. All i was trying to do is find out whether or not I could adjust the amount of memory my onboard intel gfx card shares with the system memory ..no one even knew what i was talking about.. although the black case is shiney and looks good, keeping that surface smudge free is next to impossible... all in all its a good laptop the support weighs down the review
Other Thoughts: When I first saw that I got a laptop for my birthday I was like dang :( woulda rather had a blue ray player and new vid card for my core 2 duo system :P heheheh but after starting to use this laptop I started to like windows 8 and I liked the idea of being a mobile computing power:) I had totally underestimated being mobil. My first windows computer was an Acer aspire black tower the year was 1996 that acer ran for 3 years then i spilled a whole bottle of wine on it right on the tower and it ran 2 more years and was still running when i got a new comp and gave it to my brother ..I am hoping this acer is as dependable as the last acer was :)READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Well I guess for people stuck in the past it has a floppy drive and and ide connector.hehehe yayayay seems like it is gonna be a tight fit between the nbridge heat-sink and the cpu heat-sink but we will see i will update this review first after the build then again after the burn in (24) hours under load.
Cons: didnt come with any cool but mostly useless software. doesn't have the normal 5 back plate legacy audio jacks but i knew this going in but it is a con
Other Thoughts: obviously the vast majority of people buying this board are buying it as a replacement for a dead MB on an older system with ddr2 ram for me it was a dead p5n-d it kinda bothers me that mb manufactures just totally stop production on boards after a 6-8 month run..because if u have to buy a new mb and if its not the same make and model your oem windows wont work and yea u can still get the board on an auction site or something for 10x the original cost ..so either MS has to be realistic when replacing older mb's or companies should save some for the ones that die so ppl dont get put in a jam :) just a thoughtREAD FULL REVIEW
