I have used several different brands of Laptops and Acer will always be the one I return to again and again. I have never encountered any trouble with an Acer I have ever owned, except my first one and only then because someone fell on it and cracked the screen in two places. it was replaced with no trouble or stupid questions as to how it got broken. Excellent product with never any problems in manufacturing or performance.

Bought the laptop for Christmas for my daughter and ended up returning it because the keys were sticking. Picked up another one because my daughter liked the laptop so much. The keys worked fine on the new one, but later the following day the screen was glitching. Returned it for a full refund. This will be the first and the last Acer that I buy, I will never turn away from DELL again!
