This laptop is simply awesome! I am a fan of acer laptops as my old one survived 4.5 years of rough treatment (including a pint of beer spilled directly into the keyboard). This one seems just as robust as that one, with several improvements; dead silent, does not heat up at all, and is simply amazingly fast, not to mention light. The screen is amazing and it has speakers as good as on any sony vaio or other expensive laptop i have seen. My only critique would be that the inbuilt mouse pad is not amazing, but since I use a usb optical mouse that doesnt bother me at all... overall an amazing laptop for half the money! I was a bit sceptical about ordering online, but amazon did an amazing job sending it all the way to belgium in 3 days, and it was very safely rapped inside several boxes with shock absorbing paper, so don't hesitate using amazon to safely save a couple of 100 pounds..
No regrets here!
