Good machine, good price! 1/23/2011 10:10:32 PM

Pros: In no particular order:

Aesthetically, this machine has a simple, clean design featuring a textured lid that won't show fingerprints and a spaciously comfortable keyboard with decent feedback (for a laptop) that makes it a pleasure to type on.

Performance-wise it's quite solid for a machine in this price range, easily handling applications like Blender without breaking a sweat and showing decent (though not spectacular) gaming performance. Even under heavy workload, this machine runs surprisingly cool (as does its power supply -- speaking as someone that blew three power supplies on my last laptop, I really appreciate the fact that this one seems able to handle the current load with room to spare).

Cons: The speakers aren't great. While they aren't horrible, they don't deliver much volume or range; if you want good sound, you'll need external speakers.

This machine doesn't come with installation media, so be prepared to spend some time burning off disks before doing anything else.

Overall Review: All-in-all, a good machine at a good price; this little beastie serves well as a general desktop replacement (including casual gaming use) but don't expect it to deliver thrilling sound on its own.

I'm quite happy with it so far, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as a decent option for those on a somewhat limited budget.

I couldn't be happier - Amazing Machine 1/13/2011 8:01:59 PM

Pros: * Amazing Laptop
* Quad Core i5
* Dedicated Graphics - Means you can upgrade your VGA Cards without having to buy a whole new laptop

Cons: * Weak Charger Ports - Looks like it could be easily broken
* touchpad is in an unusual location
* No Caps Lock LED Indicator

Overall Review: This is an amazing laptop. It has Dedicated Video so you can upgrade your video card whenever you feel the need without having to buy a whole new laptop. The laptop comes with a ATI Mobility 5650 and a i5 Quad Core I5 processor along with 4 gigs of ram AND Windows 7 x64 Edition. This was a steal. I would buy again.

Made it from Cali to AL in 3 days.. Thanks for the great service as always Newegg.

1/7/2011 2:42:08 PM

Pros: Big screen. great for watching movies or other video based programs. Runs warm-hot when running multiple game clients.


Needs heat exhaust and fan repositioning. The fan is set right next to the exhaust vent on left side of chassis so IMO the MOBO and right side of the laptop get limited cooling benefits (think I burned out the graphics card due to this...See other Notes Below)

Mousepad offset is annoying. Needs backlit keyboard. I keep hitting the numbers pad when i go for the enter key in dark environments.

Overall Review: Had to return my laptop to Acer for warranty work. Had the computer for 1 full month. The graphics card went bad and the quality of the graphics went way bad. Had a blue background on the ACER and Windows boot screens. Everything had a blue tint on all graphics (video, Game, JPG) and the dark colors turned purple. The graphics looked like they were back to 90's quality. On active video, the screen flickered like a TV... Acer has the laptop and will be returning it shortly hence the 3 stars at the moment. Will give a more comprehensive review when it comes back

GOOD SPECS FOR $$$ 1/3/2011 10:28:09 AM

Pros: Quiet for now, fast processor, big screen. I'm able to have CS5 and other editing programs operating at the same time! HD videos aren't a problem here.

Highly Recomended!

Cons: Heavy (understandable), can't stand the touch pad buttons. screen is alil too glossy for glare and have to tilt a certain way to see clearly. battery life could be better.

Overall Review: If this lasts at least 2 years, props.

Great laptop for Gaming after HDD APM fix 1/1/2011 12:12:28 PM

Pros: - HD 5650 Graphics are Great for gaming!
- I like the touch pad buttons ... high quality feel
- Textured outer finish doesn't show finger prints
- Lighter weight than expected
- Gigabit LAN the only way to go

Cons: - Gaming paused for 1-2 seconds every so often. Change APM on Western Digital HDD fixed the problem. Used QuietHDD utility to set APM value.
- Viewing angle of LCD display not so good
- Not switchable graphics between HD5650 and Intel HD. This would have increase the battery life.
- Webcam not good in low light
- Wish it had bluetooth

Overall Review: Good overall Laptop for $650. I would buy again.

Great laptop 12/29/2010 7:40:20 PM

Pros: Bought it for my wife. She loves it. Screen is bright and clear. Keyboard layout is good. Mouse pad is in a good location. It's light enough to sit on her lap and doesn;t generate too much heat for what she does (facebook, email, and online shopping mostly). Mouse gensture support is neat, she likes that. Out of box configuration is pretty good. Shuts dowm by itself after no activity for a few minutes.

Cons: Battery life is about 3 hours. That's what is advertised, but always would like better. Mcafee is a 60 day trial. then you have to pay or switch. Some bloatware, but not much. Hard drive is a little slow, but once things are up and running it's not a factor.

Overall Review: The activation of the office starter suite confused my wife. I had to take care of it.

Display corrupt at post, but fine in Windows 12/14/2010 8:48:31 PM

Pros: The specs on this computer are great for the price. It runs great with games once the APM values are fixed for the hard drive.

Cons: 1st issue: Games pause for 1-2 seconds every minute or so. After working on this problem for a week, I found the problem to be caused by the APM on the Hard Drive. Solution: Install a utility called QuietHDD and the problem is resolved!

2nd issue: Video is sometimes corrupted during the display of the Acer logo during the 1st second on cold boot up. It is fine after that and no other issues with the video are occurring. I am not sure if this is a common problem with these models or not. Updating to the latest bios did not fix the issue. Acer Tech support offerred no solution.

Overall Review: Tech Support at Acer was frustrating. The person I was Live Chatting with at Tech Support was obviously not able to understand what I was describing on issue #2 listed in my cons. I think it was a language issue.

I will see about doing an exchange with Newegg.

Nice! 12/13/2010 3:47:11 PM

Pros: Great specs for $650. Runs fast, plays games very well, system is overall quite responsive. Runs much cooler than the i7 740QM I just returned

Cons: HDD could be better, might replace with 7200. Generic laptop screens all look washed out these days, very little color vibrance

Overall Review: 5650 Radeon will easily overclock to specs of the 5730 650/800 with MSI Afterburner (if you change the unofficial overclock value) to change the settings
