    Rated 4 out of 5★ by 47reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good computer A lot for the money spent. 6 GB of RAM, expandable to 8 and a terra byte hard drive. Was fairly easy to change the settings so I was comfortable with how the computer screen looked and the way the computer operated. Doesn't take up a lot of space on my computer table and its light weight. Keyboard is very nice, once it was placed on a rack at a slant. Otherwise, the keyboard was a bit awkward. The mouse pad is all right but I use a wireless mouse with it just because the wireless mouse is faster and more accurate. Did not have problems loading my programs. The only down side I can see is I can run the battery down in an afternoon's work but I keep the electric cord handy and no problem. If I had it on the road, likely would not be doing a marathon project anyway. The red color was very stylish. Wish it had more than 3 buses since I am using it to replace a tower computer. Otherwise, three buses would likely be adequate. I would buy it again but hope I don't have to, the last computer I got had a hard drive failure after 3 days. 04/17/2014
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by Fine laptop but... Ok, I have been using this laptop for 3 days and already installed software that I use and uninstalled some bloatware from Acer. After that it is a nice laptop, fast and has a lot of features, dvd drive and not too heavy. Now, the bad things I've noticed are1. Why they put the touchpad to the left!!? I find it very uncomfortable and awkward, not too easy to get used to.2. Worst of all is the touchpad, it is not very responsive and sometimes it just freezes, you can't use the pointer for no reason, had to wait about 3 minutes and it started again. Maybe a new driver or an update to the current but I am wondering if it is worth keeping it.Apart from that it is good, and you can always use an external mouse if you don't mind the touchpad. 03/26/2014
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Great product for the price It's a nice laptop for the price and it comes with the updates for Windows 8.1. But if you have any questions about the new Windows 8.1 and need "Tech" Support, if you call ACER, the tech will charge you anywhere from $199-$399 to answer a simple question, depending on which "package" you choose. I called the Acer tech support within the first 24 hours of opening the box. I told the tech on the phone to forget it.I took mine down to the local computer shop and they took all of 5 minutes to answer my question and show me how to fix the mistake I made. They didn't charge me either, it was that simple.Nice computer, horrible tech support. 04/14/2014
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by Plenty of RAM and HDD memory for the money. . . Windows 8.1 takes some getting use to. Also, SEARCH option is more likely to take you to unwanted Internet sites than to computer files, programs, etc. Dangerous possibility! For instance, trying to access my Acer ID Sign-up window I was unknowingly taken to an Internet site where I was told that my computer had already been registered and directed to an 800 number (855)445-5888 where the rep, identifying himself as authorized ACER tech, proceeded to capture my ACER ID and then control my computer. I signed-off and, within seconds, received a call from a supposed ACER rep at (704)266-3966 who insisted my computer was at risk if I did not allow her to complete a scan, etc.. I hung up and contacted an ACER rep at the tele. number provided in the packaged, printed ACER materials. He said authorized ACER Internet reps never take control of your computer. 06/23/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Acer laptop This is my first computer and I like it! It's pretty fast. Once you get the hang of it's tricks, it's pretty easy to use! It's not too heavy, I would've rather it been a little smaller but that's a minor detail. I also read a lot of negative reviews about windows 8 but I think it's great! 03/18/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great laptop! I know Acer E1 is light, slim, with long battery hours but all the Acer E1s on Amazon have no DVD drive and then I found this one in Walmart.When I received it I looked for the DVD drive immediately and I found it. Wow, I can't believe that this is true - Acer E1 with a DVD drive! This model doesn't have touch screen but who cares? I will only use touch screen on tablet and smart phones. I don't think it makes sense to use touch screen on either laptop or desktop.The machine is really fast and smooth. I have a desktop at home and I bought this laptop so I can use it when I go to school. However, after a short while I figured out that this laptop worked better than my desktop and I couldn't get off from it and now I am thinking to sell my desktop!Thank you, Walmart, for offering Acer E1 with DVD drive and at a bargain price! I truly love it! 07/08/2014
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Everything a college student could possibly need I bought two of these laptops for my daughters who are heading off to college. I read reviews about Acer and compared them with Toshiba and HP. Acer has everything that the other two have plus a few better features. The Acer keyboard has a better feel to it than Toshiba (my other daughter has Toshiba) and I'm not too sure that I would buy another HP right now considering that my 2 year old laptops hard drive crashed after 6 months, and the fan doesn't vent well and it overheats.(we don't do any gaming on it and it always sits on a hard surface) so I don't have good things to say about this $800 laptop that won't turn on. The only thing that I would have liked to see Acer provide would be a bundle deal. They could have thrown in a case and flash drive or a wireless mouse to make it really appealing. All in all, my kids really like their laptops! 05/14/2014
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by The First Acer I Do Not Love Cons:1) The sound quality is terrible. Not clear. Speakers are UNDER THE LAPTOP. The volume capability is very low. Unless you have headphones in a slightly noisy environment, you are in trouble. Sightly noisy as in a conversation going on nearby.2) This is the first Acer I have owned that cannot connect to the internet well. The connection is always weak, unless you are in an adjacent room to your router. Slowdown is an issue on some days, yet my other older Acer is functioning fine at 5 bars simultaneously.3) Windows 8 is HORRIBLE. It tries to look like a smartphone littered with "apps." So, it is loaded with bloatware. It requires you sign in to Microsoft EVERY TIME YOU USE THE COMPUTER! 1984 anyone? And the OS no longer comes with DVD playing software.4) Acer participates in this bloatware nonsense. Your files ad pictures get stored in a "cloud" if you are not careful. The apps page is littered with weather, sports, business ads, etc. Is this a computer or a web page? Plus, I don't want my Ram going to that waste.5) The keyboard does not register every button depression, so if you type quickly, get ready to add rewriting and editing time to your everyday tasks. I bought a wireless keyboard to remedy this.Pros:1) Boots up fast. In only a couple minutes max.2) Has a large HD.3) Battery lasts much longer than previous Acers. About 6 hours. 07/23/2014
