  • No Windows 11 Support
    Reviewed by Hal M - September 16, 2021

    I originally bought this as an inexpensive system to do office work, however I bought it new hoping I could get a handful of years out of it. The issue with this system is it uses an AMD A series CPU, which is not supported by Windows 11. This means I would be restricted to Windows 10, which is end of life in a bit over 3 years. I’m not entirely sure why Acer is still selling these new, since their lifespan will be only until Windows 10 goes end of life. Needless to say I returned it and purchased a system with a different CPU so I could upgrade to Windows 11 and hopefully get more than a few years out if it.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Display Screen Blackout
    Reviewed by It'sYaGorlKali - September 12, 2021

    I bought this at the beginning of the pandemic and was super excited. Upon arrival I noticed it was a bit slow for a brand new laptop! 3 months went by and was watching a movie on Netflix and all of a sudden the screen went black but I could still hear the movie (It was like the screen was asleep) freaked out I turned it off and went to bed it worked fine in the morning. Fast forward another month or so the screen did it again I called acer support this time and held the power button for 30 seconds(has to be unplugged from charger)It turned on....within the next 2 weeks it did it again and I tried the power button and it has yet to to turn on almost a year later. Upon reading into this laptop I learned it does this to its users from time to time. Fed up I have not sent it into Acer yet to repair it in fear they may charge me a lot seeing as its a hardware problem. Hooked up to an HDMI it works fine and I can use it with a different monitor but the display screen looks like the brightness is turned off (even lower than all the way down) CONSIDERING THIS WAS A BRAND NEW LAPTOP IT SHOULDN'T BE HAVING THIS PROBLEM!!!

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
