The keyboard is fine with a pleasant feel for typing although a little out of balance if the screen is tipped back too far. But I have not really found this a problem in the way that that I use the machine.
Being completely unfamiliar with Windows 8 I inadvertently downloaded some malware and had the devil's own job of getting rid of it. However Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner seem to have done the trick eventually. Will be more careful next time!
So a very versatile laptop/tablet, with a good price for the 64G model, especially when the Microsoft Office Suite thrown in as well.
Really easy to set up, and believe me if I can do it then anyone can!
Great battery life, portability.
Windows 8 which is remarkably easy.
Touch screen but also for use with conventional keyboard. Loads of Acer apps already on it along with Kindle and Spotify.
Only problem I sometimes find is that the touch screen lags, but that could just be me.
Did not buy off Amazon, but John Lewis who included a 2 year warranty free, and replaced the awful Chromebook I'd bought without question.
Have had Acer computers before and always found them reliable, so this is a definite thumbs up from me.
