5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!!!, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This ultrabook is exceptional, and provides great user experience and an elegant design for an excellent price!
It's been great ever since the day I unboxed it. Its aluminium design is very similar to a Macbook Air, looks astonishing, if not even better than the Macbook's design! Its very thin and light, which is great for portability. The keyboard is excellently placed with gaps around the keys, again, like a Macbook. It comes with Dolby home theatre sound integrated that provides excellent quality audio, which helps (because I use this laptop for music producing mostly). I have no problems with the screen, which is clear, even at 1366 x 768! It has 500GB hard drive, which is about average for a laptop these days but I find it's enough. It also has 2 USB ports, and a HDMI port, which I really like because you can easily plug it into a TV and watch something without no stuttering or connection problems with the display.
I have a few cons, though. If you use high demand programs (such as FL Studio, like me) the CPU usage can peak quite easily and will often cause a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death). But it will easily reboot afterwards. Google 'Windows 8 BSOD' if you dont know about this.
Due to how thin this ultrabook is (and like most ultrabooks) there is no LAN connector port, meaning that you are often reliant on WiFI for internet, unless if you buy a USB to LAN connector. Also the battery is pretty much attached to the laptop, so if the computer freezes then there is no way of doing the old 'pull the battery out' trick. But, the power button is very useful and if you do run into any problems I find it very helpful because if you push it it will immediately shut down the laptop.
It gets very hot, due to so little space for the fan to operate, so the fan is very noisy and quite weak too.
Overall it is a very good ultrabook with a very small price, too. It looks excellent, is easy to use and very portable. It packs great features and good software. It is excellent value for money. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great ultrabook, and because of the price I'd say it is one of the best ultrabooks out there now. Well done Acer, and thanks for bringing us yet another great laptop for us all to enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy, great price and great webcam!, 1 Feb 2012
I purchased this as my old cheap webcam broke. One complaint was packaging, which they used about three layers of cardboard on, terribly difficult to get into. But once up and running this webcams picture quality stunned me! 720p hd video, 4x hd photos, you can't go wrong for 18!

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD QUALITY CASE!!!, 6 Nov 2011
A must for iPod Touch. Very cheap, and good quality plastic used. I accidently dropped my ipod the other day and there wasn't a scratch on it! Looks cool, and if you have got an ipod lower than 32gb you can lie about your size because it says 32gb on the back of the case!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Spy Key Fob - good but plastic can snap, 6 Nov 2011
Good quality video - not HD but pretty good for something cheap. My microSD got jammed in there but eventually I removed it and put it in the right place. Body can snap, but can be put back. Dont rely on instructions as they are poorly translated from Chinese or Japanese. Ive worked out, when the orange light is on, its not taking pictures or recording. To take photo, press top or bottom button. the light will go off for a split second then come back on. To record video hold down top or bottom button. The light will flash three or four times. Let go and the light will go off. It is now recording. To stop recording, press top or bottom button.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good value guitar., 17 Jan 2009
This guitar is great value for money. People have commented that this guitar must have cost a lot more. The finish is excellent and the string action is nice and low to the fretboard.
