Style Name: Core i3, 6GB RAM, 750GB HDD Verified Purchase
I was looking for a new laptop, after my old Asus served me well. I was really impressed with the price Amazon were offering this for and read some reviews so ordered it.

I am so glad that I did, the laptop is sleek and elegant. Very thin, and stylish keyboard, many have said that it reminds them of a Mac! I am not comparing it's performance to that of a Mac, just the thinness.The performance is also fantastic, very quick and I do not understand why people complain about Windows 8 in the slightest. Yes, it is different but a fantastic different, very innovative with the apps and I find incredibly easy to use.

I would definitely recommend this laptop to anyone, the screen is a great size and it is all around brilliance, as you would expect from Acer.

Feels like a good, solidly made, laptop. Not particularly heavy but not particularly light either, despite the manufactures claims. Battery life about average, 3 hours or so depending on what one is doing. Boots fairly quickly into the Windows 8 `start' screen. The screen is very clear and easy on the eye for both text and pictures, movies look realistic and the sound is good, clear and even.

Easy to setup wifi wise, though not so good on the backup in that although 16gig is mentioned as a minimum I found that the system would not fully back up to a memory stick of that size, locked up toward the end. I had to use a separate HDD to fully back up the disk image file.

No mouse or other pointing device included (as you would expect) but the finger pad seems very usable and gives one the ability to press anywhere on the left or right respectively to simulate left or right mouse buttons (boy that was convoluted!). Comes with a charging unit but very little in the way of documentation.

The major drawback with this machine, without a shadow of a doubt, is Windows 8, it's crap (I apologise but there really is no other word to describe this operating system). It changes the screen seemingly at random, one second you are trying to back up the next something else appears on the screen and you end up moving the pointer all over the edges of the screen trying to get back to where you were, absolutely hopeless. Over the years I've used just about every type of operating system around from DR Dos, DOS, Unix, Mac's, various non graphical interfaces including Dec writers and Windows from 1 to 7, I've programmed in machine code on up, or down whichever. But I have never come across an operating system so user unfriendly as Win 8.

Laptop brands are a bit like car makes, a lot of "badge snobbery" comes into play. Top makes/brands MUST be best because they're at the top!... Not always the case, as with this laptop. It's got MORE than enough memory/storage capacity for me, it's fast as hell at connecting to the internet, (it has intel core i5), hd, usb3, Bluetooth (that actually works!), windows 8, (available with touch screen, but I didn't want that!) great sound, brilliant clear picture, comes with all sorts of other goodies that work, and, which I'll use, can revert back to previous windows/explorer if you don't like windows 8 (bit of practice, and you soon get used to it... It's not hard) If you don't like/use some of the programmes/apps, just shut 'em off. Simples!... And to get back to my opening remark, This is not a high end, top brand, over the top, expensive, do everything for ya laptop... It's an ACER!... AND! At less than £400 it does the same/more than so called "top brand" laptops, at a fraction of the cost!!... Give it a go, you'll see!

Pros:
Fairly Light
Thin
Backlit keyboards
Fairly powerful overall
Fairly Cheap
Lots of handy shortcuts on the keyboard layout.
Battery life is about 3 hours while watching films

Cons:
Touchpad is very poor. Slow to respond. Does not pick up delicate touches. Compared to a Powerbook touchpad it's terrible.
No dedicated ethernet port. The adaptor works but is a joke.
No dedicated microphone input socket. There is a combined one with the headphone jack.
Keyboard is not of the greatest quality.
Screen resolution is poor.
Overall the machine feels quite plasticky. In fact the keyboard and touchpad on my previous cheap Acer were nicer than this one's.
Windows 8 is stupid. As a simple example, they have removed the wireless networks manager from Windows 8. You can't delete a wireless network, you can't change a wifi password like you used to be able to. Many things like this are more difficult. And what use is an app screen layout on a laptop with no touch screen. Completely idiotic. Fortunately, it's possible to set it up like before by going to the desktop from the main screen and adding shortcuts. If Microsoft carry on like this I'll be buying a Mac next time.

Sorry to say I was scammed either from Amazon EU Enterprise or Amazon UK, as you can see later this was my first review more than a year ago, yesterday 17/07/2014, the Laptop doesn't want to recognize either the Wireless or the Ethernet Broadband, same time after few days installing an external portable Samsung Hard Drive, the Laptop stopped accepting it, also stopped accepting different Flash Memories, so I decided to run restore to earlier date I created earlier and after I left it at night, I turned it on at the morning but there was no recovery and no restore, I went to ACER UK website and ACER USA websites and tried to entre the serial number and the SNID Numbers and Believe it or not both are Faked, the S/N is not valid number and the SNID is also not valid number, I started to look for the Windows 8 Product Key, it is not there,
Amazon UK says we can't return it as it is having only one year guarantee ???? and Acer says this is not original Acer Product, the Sellers are Amazon EU Enterprise???? , I am demanding to return it as I am not stupid to accept faked Product 10th class in China to be sold to me as if it is first class Product.
This is not a Guarantee issue dear AMAZON, this is totally unacceptable, and sorry to be good customer for Amazon anymore. as I will take it to the European Consumer Bond as a pure Criminal Case.
