Perfect Home laptop12/1/2011
I have owned this acer laptop for the last five months. I have not had a single issue with it. Speed and storage capacity are outstanding. Graphics are outstanding. I boosted the RAM to 8GB to make this a good gaming machine as well. This is an all around excellent laptop. The speakers are small and weak. Buy a software product called "AstoundSound" this will turn any small speaker into a powerful speaker and make a dramatic difference. Try it, you will be suprised at the output difference. I would buy this laptop again in a heartbeat if I needed more than one.
I work on A LOT of laptops. This is the one that I wanted for myself. I've had it for about 2 months now and have had no issues with it other than the speakers a a little weak but I'm deaf anyway. LOVE IT. I've sold a lot of Acer computers to my customers and they seem to be iron-clad.

This computer is a steal at the listing price. Trying to build the same thing on DELL/IBuyPower runs the price into at least a thousand. Only downside was that I had a dead mic on delivery, but who the hell uses a built in mic on a laptop anyways? I sure don't. Gets a bit hot, even with a nice cooling bad on stuff like Alice: The Madness Returns, but it still functions perfectly fine even when peaking at 60 Celcius. Also, the keyboard is a bit flimsy in that I can see it bending when I type quickly and the keys themselves need to be hit almost dead center to register, but I got used to it so quickly that it doesn't even phase me anymore. Regardless, fantastic deal for the price.
