As for people complaining about Windows 8 being pre-installed; you can upgrade to Windows 8.1, install Start8 ([...] to replicate the Windows 7 start menu, and change the settings to boot directly into Desktop mode rather than the Metro UI. After this Windows 8 will look / act almost identical to 7.
product arrived quickly and in good shape
First the positive points: it works well, the keyboard is easy to use, the screen is clear (although very shiney, so no good in sunlight), it remains cool after extensive use, although not something you would want lug around with you everyday, it is portable if you don't need to carry it too far. Sound is reasonable, hdd web cam is very good and high def works well. Mic. ok with no feedback when using Skype etc. Good at coping with several programmes open at once and several pages open on browser. Overall, I'm very happy with this acer, I would say it is good value for money and it does what I need it to do.
It only gets 4 because there are.....
Issues: As others have said elsewhere, the construction is not overly robust and the screen is scarily bendy - noticeable when you open it up (as compared with my previous laptop - an HP dv 9500ea ,which blew up but, felt like it was made of iron!). The exterior plastic is very shiney and already, despite my best efforts to keep it clean, has several surface marks. The battery is not great - lasts about 2 hrs. No backlit keyboard, so not so easy to see in dim light. There are an awful lot of unnecessary pre loaded programmes that I am gradually removing.
The biggest pain is Windows 8! Yes, you can work around it, but it does kick-in all the time with unhelpful icons popping up! Hopefully, this will be sorted by Microsoft in mid-June 2013, when they release an updated version. Win 8 on an ordinary non-touch sensitive laptop, like this one, is about as helpful as a petrol tank on a pedal bike! Hope that helps.
Keep getting the 'no bootbale device' error I have removed and reinstalled the HDD and still nothing works. Plus the build quality is appalling. They didn't even put the acer logo on straight.
Set up was so simple and fast, I am just a user not a techy!
Windows 8 is very different from other windows but I simply downloaded and printed off... 60 Windows 8 tips tricks and secrets from techtrader pro... simple and clear steps and I am now working away quite well and I really like windows 8
If you want a good looking machine with excellent apps and software get this one
There was some rumour that this machine has a spare hard-drive bay. It's mentioned sporadically in the product spec etc, not sure if it exists or is a feature on higher models or what. May have to undo the 1 very large panel on the base to find out. It'd be nice if so, but not vital unless you absolutely need a 2nd drive. The touchpad seems to go a bit mental, though I've not dived into the settings for it yet, However, it tends to go a bit mental purely because of... Windows 8.
Wander too near the side of the screen, or scroll over to fast, or sneeze, or do none of the above, and some random panel appears. This is easily dealt with. Play music? Oh, it's got an integrated music player, that shows up as an overlay on the desktop! Great! Wanna pause or skip a song? Too bad, clicking on the panel kicks you into "XBOX MONEY REMOVER AND CONFUSION MAINTAINER" (actually, that crops up even if you're not listening to music or indeed doing anything). It picks a random selection of 9 albums and shows you them once you've scrolled away from the adverts. Yes, it carries adverts. But won't give you a "pause current song" button.
Acer, bless their little cotton socks, include a power management program that gives a big On/Off button on the taskbar (is it still called that?), which avoids the 2am searching for "HOW DO I TURN OFF MY COMPUTER I NEED TO GO TO BED".Read more ›
