I bought this E1-572 for the wife and it is even better than my old one. Slightly slimmer and lighter despite the rubbish and scant specification details on the Amazon website. In fact I got more information from the Which web site although that model only had 4GB of RAM. This may have improved by now.
At the time I bought this model there were no reviews at all on Amazon so I was a bit wary but based on my experience with my existing Acer Aspire I took the plunge.
Similar to mine the screen viewing angle is not brill - better than mine but nothing compared to a iPad screen (and probably a Mac too). Still fine. It isn't the shiny surface of case that mine has but does pick up a few finger prints but nothing to worry about.
So far no issues - fast and everything works well.
Probably the only minor gripe I have is the touch pad. It is not that responsive to scrolling by sliding your finger down the right hand side. Also allows for 2 finger zooming and scrolling but again not brill at all. I think my old laptop is better for the touch pad althoghI like the rough feel of the new touch pad. This might be adjustable - I will try to resolve it but with a cheap wireless Logitech M305 mouse you would never care anyway.
My recommendation from using my Acer (and I have set the wife's up the same) is change what happens when you close the lid and the power buttons.
Power button - set this to shut the PC down.Read more ›
I use this mainly for storing photos, internet and family tree research it is compatible with Family Tree Maker 2012 and Office 2007.
Don't be put off by Windows 8.1, the desktop is still there and the Start button is back, along with the close and minimise button for programmes (apps). I work from the desktop and only use the Apps when I need to. I moved from a laptop running Vista to Windows 8.1 and found it to be very straightforward.
I'm glad they included a USB 3 port as this makes data transfer very fast. I prefer to use a mouse so cannot comment on the tracker pad.
The first time you turn it on allow plenty of time to go through the set up process - nothing scary, just a bit time consuming (probably the same for all new laptops). After that it is almost an instant start up.
We were so impressed with this laptop that my husband bought one too.
Laptop arrived and went through Windows 8 setup process, heard a lot of negative feedback on Windows 8 but I thought I would give it a chance as there was no other alternative anyway! It took a lot of getting used to and I don't think Microsoft did themselves any favours. What made it worse was while googling to try and solve all the problems I kept getting adware and virus alerts coming up which then sent me into a panic, not wanting to ruin a brand new laptop.
Deleted all the pre installed crap which was causing the adware.... still had a few problems with the anti virus program (I think it was Mcafee) so uninstalled that and replaced with AVG which removed the rest of the adware and trojans.
Not had a problem since.
I seen a comment on another review saying it was unfair to comment on the adware as its easily removed but it was time consuming and unnecessary also I think "why should I have to?"
Preload decent software and leave out the adware will leave users far happier and less stressed!!
The I7 is a complete beast, and really speeds up the laptop.
Yes Widnows 8.1 takes a while to get used to but the laptop has a very easy help section.
The battery life is amazing, which was a bonus.
I have reloaded Microsoft office from my old Toshiba which feels like a museum piece compared to this and it is so fast.
It also boots up so quick and turns off in seconds.
Having looked at many other laptops over a long period of time im pleased i waited to get an I7.
The only negative that it does show your finger prints very easily but I really love this laptop.
