Acer Spin 3

Bought this product for my 10 year old grandson for his birthday. He seems very happy with, especially after he was able to download Mindcraft.

Errors right out of the box

Received an error message the very first time I tried to start it up. Spent about an hour on the phone with Acer's technical support only to have them send me a flash drive to reinstall the operating system and when I tried that... it wouldn't even start up. Returning it today. I definitely wouldn't recommend buying this product.

Excellent versatile machine

Bought this open box for light weight tablet pc combo. Was very slow at initial setup, disk usage 100% but left it sit for a few hours and runs great now.

My Acer

My Acer is a great addition to my family of electronics. It's slim Light weight design is excellent. Taking my Acer with me to work or play is no problem, especially with the ability to turn into a Touch screen pad makes it all

Had some slowness and freezing issues at first but decided to give the geek squad a chance to check it out before returning it as I like all the features. They tweaked it and it runs great now.

My Experience

This is a great laptop hardware and feature wise. Out of the box it worked quite well. Initially I didn't notice the disk usage issues with the hdd because my expectations were quite low. I was going to update to SSD pronto so I guess I overlooked that. When I installed the SSD it was much faster to boot, but the disk usage issue seemed to be very annoying. The disk would almost always be at 100% usage. After farting around with disk swapping and reinstalls, I went to Microsoft and downloaded a fresh copy of windows 10. After the install, no more disk issues. My disk usage is steady at 0-2%. I'm just happy to have it working with SSD and no disk usage problems. Disk usage seems to be a problem with Windows 10. It helped to not have all the Acer bloatware on it. Maybe they pre-installed crappy drivers.

Great little laptop with a lot of built-in versatility and very little pre-installed bloatware. Great media player, excellent office computer, nicely oversized tablet, and even a decent game machine (runs older titles perfectly, such entire Borderlands series). Highly recommended!

  • from Richmond Hill, ON

Disk Usage 100% all the tIme

Yep, just like the other reviewer, the disk is always at 100% for no apparent reason. It's very slow and unusable as a result. Had to return it. DO NOT BUY.

  • from Windsor, ON

Really disappointing...

I was excited to get this laptop for myself, it had everything I was looking for in a laptop. Unfortunately, for some reason it was using 100% disk usage out of the box, tried reinstalling but nothing worked. Very "laggy" to the point where I couldnt navigate on the screen even. Exchanged for a new one and the exact same thing happened. I've found several other reviews on the web stating the same thing. It's too bad.

  • from Beaumont, AB

Returned 3 of these in 2 days

Bought this laptop, had to return it right away as it did not turn on. Exchanged for same model and it would not work, exchanged for a third model and it would not setup so I had to return once again and got my money back.

Something is terribly wrong with these laptops or mine is faulty. Chrome, windows explorer takes several minutes to respond. Other programs do not respond and crashes frequently. Screen brightness is weird. Not sure if touch screen would last for a year.
