I received this as a warranty replacement for a 13.3" Jan 2010 era early ultrabook, which was very poor in comparison and had been sent in twice for repairs with intervening very little use. Relative to initial prices, I asked for an i5, but this seemed a little demanding. I have had it for 10 months with 8 gb upgraded ram and a Segate 500 gb XT hybrid SSD/7200 drive and it seems pretty responsive. I upgraded the Win 7 to Pro which has better networking. Acer "would not" allow me to purchase an all damage warranty so there warranty ran out in a few months with the 2010 purchase so I got a SQ Trade warranty, all damage, which for the 1st time with a notebook I might not need to take advantage of! Overall I guess it has the features on expects from current notebooks, but has anew three year life with an external warranty purchased, without having to buy the hardware. The previous notebook gave me a poor impression of Acer, but this has rectified it. I had an Asus netbook and gave it away, also had a Toshiba and a HP notebooks and I am most happy with this one.
Could use a faster cpu I suspect.
Overall I am satisfied with this as a warranty replacement, though I am unsure how much my modifications have contributed to the performance as it currently stands.
