It's a good laptop.
I bought mine mainly to surf the net and write documents. It does these both with no problems (as any half decent laptop should). However, the keyboard is a bit flimsy. One of the keys fell off after about a month but it clicked back into place and has so far stayed put. I did buy an external one to use with it at home as I am a bit heavy handed with my typing. The rest of the build seems solid though and has so far stood up to the knocks I expose it to on a daily basis.
Also on the downside, it isn't exactly svelte. It's quite bulky and heavy but this might be a price you play for the graphics card.
I have no problem with the wi-fi as one of the reviewers has. Perhaps this only happens with certain routers. You might need to check this out.
I also purchased it to play occasional games on the go. Consequently, I chose this model because it has a 1Gb graphics card. It plays most recent games with little problem. Bio-shock played well with only a few graphic tweeks. Napolean: Total was is a bit jerky but I've seen that game jerky on better rigs than this.
The screen is nice and bright and doesn't suffer from glare as badly as some - my partners Viao is almost unusable in bright sunlight.
There is a touch sensative strip along the top of the keyboard that controls functions such as volume and switching wi-fi on/off, which is useful. The touchpad is as fiddly as they are on other laptops. I usually get a mouse out as soon as I can get it on a flat surface but as I said, it's no worse than any other laptop.
It's not the prettiest of laptops despite the fairly nice blue lid - my partners vaio is much nicer to look at but I didn't go for looks (I mean with laptops not partners).
Overall, a good purchase if you want decent power and aren't too bothered about looks.
If you want to partition the hard drive expect some trouble. Using the windows tool just causes the partition to disappear when you restart the conputer. I used EASUS Partition, and so far no problems. Mic quality is also pretty bad, and keyboard is too flat. And it can be a bit loud>
Otherwise, the screen is very good, components are top notch, and sound quality is decent. A nice all rounder in my opinion.
This is my second ACER, so I know the brand. Customer support is swift, albeit costly if you call. The PCs are well made, and last for years.
Fingerprint recognition is wonderful! Also this laptop is powerful enough to run some of the latest games, one of the reasons why I bought it.
I would urge anyone thinking of purchasing it to search the internet for this model number followed by wireless and problems. There is clearly a fault with this model whereby the machine does not connect to the internet when you move any further than a couple of feet away from then router. Given the widespread instances of this occurring, I do not believe Acer are not aware of this problem and so there are serious ethical questions behind its continued sale.
