Good compact lightweight laptop
on 14 March 2014
Lightweight, compact unit which has a sleek design not too dissimilar from the beloved MacBook (but half the price). Excellent spec even compared to 'bigger' laptops, and feels solid and well made. Works well, quick start up, windows 8 is easy to use, but not the point of this review (its about the computer not the operating system!). Battery life is adequate (about 4-5hrs) and sound quality is not amazing, but these are minor points. Nice keyboard and screen is sharp but angle dependant. This is not a touchscreen.
I would recommend; remove all the acer junkware (speeds up running), and buy a 32GB USB stick to create a system recovery drive in case windows fails to start (it has to be bigger than 16gb). You will also need a portable CD/DVDRW if you want to use discs, £20 on amazon for Samsung unit which is very good.
Overall very good laptop, I would recommend it.
