Microsoft Arc Mouse - Black

1 out of 5 eggs Don't buy it! 01/22/2011

This review is from: Microsoft Arc Mouse - Black

Pros: Stylish,
Folds compact,
Can be used from across the room.

Cons: Wheel breaks.

Other Thoughts: I bought one for myself and was so happy with it that I bought one for my wife for christmas. Big mistake! First mine started to malfunction and just now my wife's started to do the same thing. The wheel works intermittently...then doesn't work at all.
Frustrating. The failure rate on these is high enough that even those with good initial ratings will probably go south before the year ends.

Acer Laptop Aspire AS5742-7765 Intel Core i5 1st Gen 460M (2.53 GHz) 4 GB Memory 320 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 15.6

Pros: Worth every penny.
Battery life is good for the size of the monitor, 4+ hrs (turn wifi off to get even better batt-life)
The screen is clear and acceptably viewable from an off-angle. (not extreme angles)
Textured finish hides finger prints well.
Overall, the build quality and performance is good, --acceptable for a <$700 unit.

Cons: Sound quality is less than expected. (headphones work fine and "fix" that complaint)
Crapware. (uninstalling doesn't take long with a little research to be sure of what it does)

Other Thoughts: Keeping this in context. A $6-700 laptop will not compare to a $1000+ rig...or to a multi-grand gaming setup, etc. If you need a military grade unit or a dual-vid-card, HDDx2 gaming unit, this is not for you.
In context -You get a big screen, DVD, full keyboard w/num-pad with true laptop performance for the price of an upper-end net book.
You're gonna pay more (and should be expected to) for blu-ray, high-res screen, SSD, vid-cards, alum/titanium case etc.
If price remains below $700 ($600 would be better), this is a good deal. Get it!
