  • Windows 8 Live Tiles provide real-time updates from your Facebook, Twitter and email accounts

  • Integrate your online favourites, such as Facebook, Hotmail and Flickr, with content from your PC, such as photos and contacts.

  • Browse faster with Internet Explorer

  • Stay safer with Windows Defender

  • With thousands of apps to choose from, there's something for everyone. Once you buy an app from the Windows Store, it's yours to use on up to five Windows PCs or tablets.

  • Plus Mail, Photos, SkyDriver and more built-in

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Laptop!! with a massive screen!!! 4 Jan 2013
I've been searching for a laptop for a while now and this was the best deal I could find.
Although its made out of plastic the laptop feels nice and solid. The screen is lovely and is great for watching Tv and videos on and its pretty big. The trackpad is nice and big and is really sensitive but it can get in the way when typing sometimes so I would recommend getting a wireless mouse and turning it off when doing lots of typing. The keyboard is great and i think its very similar to an apple key board. I was a bit worried when I saw it was running windows 8 but once you get the hang of it its pretty simple to use, i now have trouble using old windows as i'm so used to the set up. Windows 8 can be a little confusing at first so i suggest reading something on how to use it, I found this website really useful - [...]
The only thing is it doesn't come with a recovery disk to recover documents and programs if the computer won't start but when you first start up the laptop you have the option of turning a 16GB memory stick into a recovery drive.
Also the postage on the laptop was really fast I ordered mine on boxing day and wasn't expecting it any time soon but it arrived after only 3 days which is pretty good for free delivery!
All in all a brilliant buy and the design is nice too!
Thank you Amazon! :)

I was just on my last legs with my previous Dell laptop computer, so winning this Acer Aspire V3-771 in a competition was a real blessing!
It has the latest Windows 8, which I am still getting used to. The graphics are brilliant if you are a gamer, and the HD display is astounding. Additionally, the large monitor screen is a treat if you want to watch your DVDs, have a slideshow of your photos, etc on your laptop.
The audio is divine - it has the Dolby Home Theater incorporated - and the built in video camera is great, as I have relatives all over the world, and talking to them via Skype is an absolute treat.
If I had to had chosen a laptop to purchase it would've been this one. I was just fortunate that I won it in a competition!
The only minor disadvantage is that it seems that the latest Windows Update has made the network driver incompatible with Windows 8 which I am still trying to resolve, as it keeps on interrupting my internet connection. I wish there could've been some forewarning about this issue, as it seems to be a common one with this particular driver. Also, there is an unnecessary number of useless apps, which you can only access via your Microsoft account - if you have one. However, these can be uninstalled.
All in all, this laptop is an excellent bonus for me, and I got it free!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best value for money 23 Mar 2013
By Mr S
I noticed that Amazon are not selling the brand new version of this laptop (all are like new or good condition) and therefore purchased it brand new for 379.9 (including shipping) from laptops direct (cheaper than amazon). Very good laptop and the best value for money out there. Can't fault any aspect of the laptop.

The hard disc is very quiet unlike some other reviews out there. Hard disk had only 1 partition, however the disk management feature on windows 8 (and also on previous versions of windows) allows you to create more partitions in hardly a minute! So no problems here.

Windows 8 is not totally bad. I missed the start menu and so I downloaded the start menu 8 free application and got it back :) Now whenever I start windows 8 it automatically takes me direct to the normal desktop interface that we are used to in previous versions on windows. The metro interface is now secondary and I can go there if and when needed, so actually I now have the best of both worlds! Wish Microsoft could have had this built in themselves, however no issues anymore.

Consider windows 8 as a person having his/her regular home as well as an extra holiday home. If the start menu application is installed you can consider the normal desktop interface as your usual windows home (even starts up on this screen) plus you get that extra "holiday house" which maybe not as homely as your regular one but does have that extra change that is sought after. Yes it may not be everything that you expect but it does indeed give you that extra feel which I am sure will be polished further with the next Windows blue update.

Boot up time of windows 8 is improved and shut down is even faster. Microsoft app store sucks compared to Android or the iStore!

I ordered this laptop to replace an ageing and temperamental desktop. First impressions were very good, a smart laptop in good condition, and Acer mitigated Windows 8 unfamiliarity by installing a variety of little aids, such as a soft power-off button, a tile to go the desktop, shareware utilities to play media etc. Very pleased with all this at first, so that even Windows 8 did not seem too bad.

The initial favourable impression was soured however when I tried to create recovery media onto a USB drive as instructed in the Acer docs. These said use a 16Gb drive, which I did; several attempts later I had wasted a whole day as each attempt took many hours and the process reached 99% and then hung... Eventually I saw on the net that this fault is prevalent on Acer laptops, so I contacted Acer Customer Support. They were extremely unhelpful, could suggest no way round this and refused to send me recovery media unless I paid an extra 51 !! My call to them is still open, they have promised to call back (2 weeks ago) but I guess the Euro crisis may be resolved before they do :-). Rather than waste more money on phone calls I gave up with them. Eventually I solved the problem myself by getting a 32Gb USB3 drive which worked much faster and onto which the recovery contents copied first time.

Another problem with this laptop is that the battery lifetime is very low, only a few hours at most. Means you have to carry the power brick with you if away for a day. Also make sure you configure various Windows 8 power options as you prefer, otherwise devices turn themselves off apparently at will (this is nothing to do with Acer though).

The whole experience could have been so much better if Acer Customer Support had been helpful. Beware !!
