Worst computer ever

Shuts down by itself, reboots randomly during the first 3 months. During the 4th month the keyboard stopped working (could not access the computer). I sent the computer to the manufacturer and it came back with the same problems plus a new one: after it shuts down by itself on my second use i could not reboot it anymore. I will have to go back to BestBuy to have it sent once again to the manufacturer less than one week after it came back from the manufacturer.

Happy with my new laptop

I figured it was time for a upgrade after the video card in my 15yr old desktop build finally failed (will fix). I decided to go with a laptop for now until the time comes when I build a desktop. I've used windows 10 but never owned a copy myself. Was very simple to set up and configure to my liking. Laptop runs nice and smooth, quick start up, nice size screen, lots of usb ports including the C type but find I will probably miss a integrated dvd drive but that's easily fixed with a external. I'm very happy with the wifi connection it's nice and strong, surprised with how good the sound is using headphones. Love the idea that I can upgrade the ram and hdd easily if I choose to. After using a clunky keyboard for so long I thought it might take some time to get used to the laptop keyboard but it's actually very comfortable to type on and feels natural. I don't game much anymore but I'm certain what was running on my old pc will run better on this one (wow mostly - any increase from lowest settings is a improvement lol) Got the laptop on sale so for a quad core (amd fan), 8gb ram and a tb of hdd space I'm very satisfied with my purchase. No issues, no freezing like some have reported and I like the Acer brand, I've always had good luck with their products

Powerful Notebook for the Price

Fast and responsive. Updates were easy and a must so that the latest drivers provide enhancement of video and sound. I bought it mainly for gaming. Runs Mass Effect 3, Borderlands 2, Dead Space 3 on mid -graphics settings at 60+ frames. Games look great and very playable. Laptop runs very cool. Fan noise is below average (which is very good, i.e. light noise). Key pad is sturdy and responsive. Mouse pad is very responsive also. Laptop is light. Only con is that the screen is a bit whitened, but this can be adjusted in the display setting to adjust brightness and contrast. I recommend this laptop to those who want a bit more power at an affordable price.

Very Good for the money

If you follow the directions the set up was seamless. Installed my office account without a problem. I run an external usb hub to download files including powerpoint. The transfer speed was fast for the processor and I was up and running within 5 hours start to finish. My only issue was Norton being on the computer which I had to uninstall. Bottom line great for the money.

Acer used to be the best price & quality.. wth happened?!

I bought a brand new Acer and nothing works well. The USB drive barely works. The computer froze a few times DURING THE VERY FIRST USE! Bestbuy said to let it update and it should work fine. It only worked fine until the next update. Mine has a touch screen.. and that barely worked. It took months for it to get fixed properly. NEVER BUYING THIS JUNK AGAIN!

I miss my 7 yo laptop

Pros: Amazing battery life, strong build Cons: Very loud, buggy, geek squad failed the windows installation, horrible sound I got this laptop because I spilled water my 7 yo laptop and it couldn't be saved. This laptop makes me miss my old one. The sound is horrible, the computer keeps crashing, the hdd is making alot of noise although the computer is new. The only upside is the battery life. I can easily make a full day on one charge which is nice. Im still going to try to return the laptop.
