Love this laptop

While Acer doesn't have the best reputation I have to say I really like this laptop and it's exactly what I was looking for.

great little computer

I've never had any issues with my Acer products.... this is my 3rd laptop and its great! It is very similar to Mac but way less expensive.... no fan issues at all...

Super rocket-launching loud fan

Honestly im never buying another acer laptop in my life. This laptop looks really nice however the fan is extremely loud... not only does it turn on when u run google chrome, it also doesnt turn off when you put the computer to sleep... Sent it back to acer twice but they just couldnt do anything but to tell me that this model has a loud fan... along with a lot of other models. shake my head

So far so good!

Purchased this laptop a few weeks ago and haven't had any problems. It is thin and fairly light - exactly what I wanted. Very similar to a MacBook but the programming that I'm used to, and much cheaper!! Highly recommend

Dead on arrival

The price and features looked great. However, straight out of the box it was dead. At least Best Buys return policy is great.

I bought this laptop a week ago and the second I brought it home, I experienced issues. Don't let the good looks fool you. The screen was very pixel-ated and low resolution, despite it saying 1080p. It didn't even turn on for 10 minutes when I first got it. I returned it the next day. Waste of my time.

One Big Problem

I got this laptop for Christmas and it was working great for the first week! I loved the specs and how lightweight it was. However, one morning I tried turning it on and the screen was plain black even though the keyboard was lit. I fixed it but it happened again the next day so I ended up returning it.

Efficient & Functional

I've had this laptop for almost two weeks now, and it is perfect for what I was looking for. I was looking for an affordable, lightweight laptop on the smaller end that was quick and I could use mostly for excel, word and browsing. I haven't tried to play games or anything on it, but it starts up quick, the screen is bright, and it's been awesome so far. It reminds me of a macbook air without the price tag. The one weird thing - the speakers are on the bottom of the computer, so the sound comes out muffled and quiet, which is strange, but not the biggest deal to me as I have a speaker that I hooked it up to.

Would be 5/5 were it not for the keyboard

Bought this laptop as I wanted a quick but cheap & cheerful laptop. All in all, it's great - it's quick, it's the right size/weight (like a Macbook, clearly trying to copy the design features), it has a backlit keyboard, and a great HD display. There's ONE issue - the keyboard. For reasons I will never understand, they took your typical keyboard and then cut two keys to half their normal size - the left shift key (now two little keys instead of one big one) and the return key (on small key, one big-ish-but-not-regular size). You can tell that this is a recent change because the physical housing is cut to the right size, it's the keys themselves that are cut (meaning - instead of having the metal frame between the two keys, there's no gap - just two keys stuck together). The picture on the website is NOT the key layout in the package. This may sound trivial, but do you realize how many times you hit the shift key when typing a sentence?? Whoever made this design change knows nothing about testing, because they wouldn't have made the change had they tested it. What was wrong with the keyboard the way it was?!?! Otherwise, great. But I am buying a USB keyboard for typing long docs. A pain.
