A lot to be desire for memory
This computer is very neat and compact enough to be used in tight business places. Great if you want to just used the tablet portion and feature for just surfing the internet. However the 32 GB of memory can be misleading or misinterpret. The unit does come with 32 GB of memory, but most of that memory is used up by the operation system alone, not to mention the memory that is used up for the recovery portion of the drive in which you have no access to. Furthermore, Acer pre-installs a ton of software that the user would most likely never use. Straight out of the box, a typical user will have only an average of 5 GB of usable space, minus the memory that the unit reserves for itself, just to even run, which makes it very difficult to install programs that will only install on the C drive, and not onto an external or jump drive.

Acer Aspire Laptop

This laptop is truly innovative. I have struggled with idea of owning a regular tablet. I just could not make the jump to something that my previous laptop could do. Well this Acer is an excellent fit for me. Probably its best feature by far for me, is this laptops ability to transform into a tablet when I see fit. Yes the screen folds all the way back to make it just like a tablet, when you do this the keyboard becomes disabled so you don't press any buttons when you are holding it. The touchscreen is probably the best I've ever used so far, very smooth and fluid like. The screen is made from tough gorilla glass so excellent quality there. you can choose between view of the desktop if that's what you prefer, or the windows 8 screen with apps, you can use touchscreen for either mode. the keyboard is great, the only flaw with it, is it does not have 10 key. I am a super user of 10 key, so just beware it does not have that feature, it does have all the other features of a regular keyboard. two USB slots, and surprisingly an HDMI slot as well, was not expecting that. it is smaller than a normal laptop, but that is expected because it does also change into a tablet. the weight of it is not heavy at all. nice so if you are using it as a tablet it won't weight on your arm. so internally the processor is fast, no delays are seen loading web pages. I have used it for facebook, shopping, and emailing. it does have a small amount of memory only 2GB, but I'm assuming if it had more the price would be higher. I do understand that you can upgraded the memory to 8 GB if you choose so. another thing I thought was kind of disappointing was the 32 GB internal storage. But after opening the box, its discovered that you have the option, as of with all things now, to store on the Cloud. If you don't want to do that you can always buy an external hard drive, but the Cloud seems to be the quickest way to store and share your data. This does come Windows 10 ready, but at the moment I have not been able to even get the Windows 10 app for the update. I am sure that Microsoft will fix this issue and it won't be long before we can update to Windows 10. Overall this a great laptop if you are still on the fence, like I was, about getting a tablet. Or even if you just want a new laptop, this is a great price, and really I cannot find any problems with this Acer

It's Great

I like the Acer Aspire R11. This is a great laptop. The touch screen capability takes it over the top. This is the best feature as far as I am concerned. I don't know about you but I have become so comfortable with touchscreens on smartphones that I want this feature on every computer device. This touchscreen is very responsive and a joy to use. Ok enough about the touchscreen. There are plenty of other great features. The flip positions for one. This laptop can be used in 3 different positions: notebook, tent and display. The touchscreen works great in all 3 positions. The keyboard has large comfortable keys. The touchpad is very responsive and a good size. The power,volume and charger port are conveniently located on the right side. The ethernet, HDMI, USB and headphone ports are all located on the left side. It comes with an expandable sd slot located in the rear. The laptop itself is sturdy and comes with a nice textured cover that repels fingerprints. I will say though it is a little heavy especially to carry around. I like the fact that when you depress the cap lock it displays on screen to let you know. The Acer Aspire R11 loads quickly at startup. I did find a slight hesitation accessing the internet but I believe this to be because of my poor wifi service. I will say that I removed everything and reinstalled windows once. The first time I installed Windows, Office 365, Netflix, Evernote, Chrome and opted in for McAfee internet security. By the time all updates were installed (Windows and McAfee being the biggest culprits) I only had 5.1GB left on my hard drive. I had no documents, no music and no pictures installed either. The Acer Aspire comes with a 32GB hard drive only 20GB available for user. Acer's preloaded programs and the operating system use up a good amount of space. So, I removed everything and did a factory reset. Once this was completed I then removed all the extra stuff that I don't need or will never use. I installed the programs I wanted and now have 11.9GB of free space on the hard drive. This device is supported by Acer for a free Windows 10 upgrade. I like Windows 8.1. Having a touchscreen makes all the difference for me. I recommend The Acer Aspire R11 with a huge SMILE.

What a nice little convertible this is

Previously, I had picked up an Acer Aspire One (net book), years ago & liked it quite a bit. So naturally I wanted to see what their convertible laptop was like. Neat, actually. I have been on the fence about tablets & such, for some time. I do a few things with my phone & everything else with my various computers, but there are times, when I'd like to flip my net book in half, so now I can. The case has a kind of raised leather pattern on it, a far cry from the slick gloss. I like it though, no fingerprints. I got the sky blue one, & at first glance, it looks like one of those kid toy lap tops. I feel that I'm going to break it, but it's quite sturdy. It has a nice weight to it as well. I'm sure many people will say it's too heavy, but it isn't that bad overall. Holding it with one hand, as a tablet you may want it lighter. But that could just be me. Using it as a tablet for writing is alright. The onscreen keyboard is available, & can be split for drawing, or just text. I am writing most of this review this way. Like most, I went to the Acer website, to see what neat little things I could add to it. I am surprised that I can't find this model listed. Not a thing on there for the R-11. I'll probably bother one of their chat people to see what I can do, or just pass on it. I have a few neat accessories already for the net book. Using the "convertible", is really nice. You can access the on-screen keyboard any time, but, like many touch screen devices, finding enter/send takes a little bit (if you aren't using it as a lap top). I have read a few reviews about this, & how slow it is. I don't find it really that slow. It's not going to play a full scale game, but it isn't made to do that. It's about a gig of video, which is quite ample for what the tasks are for it. I have opened & loaded just about everything on there, & aside from having to log in & register, everything came up pretty quickly. Note; I started out with a balance setting, between performance & fluff. Already, I have gone to the web store on Microsoft, & downloaded a sweet waterfall picture for one of the three/four the desktops (see pictures). If you're not exactly sure, where to go to do something, there are many, many help options & tutorials for you to review. They are only a tap away. I will say that I was concerned with not being able to close out a few programs, but (through one of the tutorials), found by dragging it to the bottom, it will kind of close it out after awhile. A pretty neat feature, which will take a little getting used to. Probably natural for tablet (non computer) users. Viewing is something you need to adjust for yourself. I didn't have many issues seeing things, but certain angles; like with any screen, are going to be determined by the viewer. Sometimes a little off, more often, right on. When you set this up for the first time, you need to log in with your Hotmail/Outlook/Live account (whichever one you use). Not an issue for me, as I've had Hotmail well before MS bought it, & periodically, have had outlook. Somewhere along the line, they merged everything. Setting this system up (using Windows 8.1) isn't bad at all. Pretty simple really, liking to any other retail computer. I do like that they added an easy to find desktop, being only a click away. I had built a computer awhile back for someone, using 8.1, but installed a shell program to get to the desktop/start menu. Personally, I think Win 8 & 8.1 is more for touch screens anyhow, maybe because it looks like you should touch it. No problem with this Acer, the screen takes the touch commands very well. Using OneNote with drawing, is nice. The screen & drawing is smooth. I can't say how well it draws pictures as yet, there aren't that many points of touch compared to a drawing tablet, but should be enough to do a little detailed work with it. That is, more than just making a picture with "circles & arrows". There are a bunch of other apps there, offering the same thing-a cloud text/photo program. All aimed to keep a copy of your stuff & make sharing (inter business) easier. If you need/like that kind of stuff. The touch screen sure makes using Paint, a bunch easier. I may even add it to my arsenal of photo editing tools. Being that I'm pro mouse, the mouse pad, is alright, but I tend to not get a program open the first time in lap top mode. A double click on the shortcuts, gets it open alright. While on the subject of programs, there aren't many which come with it, more than your simple programs. Mostly stuff you need to buy. Seeing there isn't any optical drive (cd/dvd), I'll have to either get or make my own digital copies of the various software programs which I'd like to continue using. Not a big issue, even if you don't know how to, as nearly every program has a downloadable version available. Connecting to the wifi in the house was easier than my phone, & that was easy. Just enter the password & bam, welcome. Connecting it to my certain printers, well, that's a whole other ball of wax with them (the printers). Connecting elsewhere, is easy enough. Comparing it to my above mentioned netbook, it's much faster. Even loading large retail store web pages is nice & fast. It found all of my wifi signals in the house, but it did lose the really fast one the other day for some reason. Connection & speed are fine, & just as fast as the tower computer I use. Dinking around, I downloaded the updates to the various "apps", it didn't take long at all, for all 29 of them. Of course, it didn't tell me how big they were (3 gigs), but it didn't take too long. I connected my phone to it, as well as inserted an SC card; it did take about three minutes to get the software for it. Once I restarted, it was quite happy to include my various pictures, songs & documents. I declined this offer, & just had it open a few random pieces so I could see how it did. It did fine. The music sounds fine enough for little speakers, the images are very nice. Clean & crisp. Pictures & digital movies play fantastic! Many of my digital collection is in HD, & they are crisp, & clear. The sound is very good. I hooked the HDMI up to my 1080P tv monitor (see review elsewhere) & played them via this Acer, both as duplicate & single; everything was the same. No hesitation, no skipping or stuttering. You can zoom the pictures to their max size as you like, & everything is very clear. Hard drive space. I will say that the hard drive is a bit small for 2015; only 20 gigs to start. I had 11.8 gigs free, till I updated the first day (63 items), & it dwindled down to 8.3! Two more automatic updates & it was under 8 gigs. That is nuts for many updates, but insane for a small laptop drive. I am sure it's this small, because the computer doesn't use any fans for cooling, so I will look into another drive. Maybe an SSD, but I'll see what the options are. I know I have a 30gig laptop drive handy, & I may even see if I can move some things to the external sd card. That would at least be a quick fix. I installed one as an extra drive. While on the subject of the sd card, I like that it is now "in the rear" & especially like that it is flush! I do wish there was an easy way to download the various apps, to the "external" drive. This would free up the hard drive for other things. Personally I like having more control of where things go, as well as lots of drive space. This hasn't any fans. I have had this on for hours, all day in fact, & it is cooler than my phone. So if you're looking for quiet, & not heating things up, this is a great option to consider. The life of the battery, so far is great. From initial start at 4pm, it ran (with a brief break), till midnight, only using 52% of the battery. Some of that was downloading the updates. The second day it ran from 9am to 11pm, & 9 am till I plugged it in at 11am (because I was going to take it with me, & wanted to have a full charge on it). Overall thoughts: This is a very neat computer that functions as a tablet. Though it may take a little getting used to it, you'll pick up on it very quickly. Using Windows 8.1 is very nice. The only thing which bothers me is the size of the drive. If you could install the "apps" to the sd card, that would be great, but there isn't any option to install elsewhere. Because of this, I really won't be installing many of them, & certainly will be uninstalling a few more as is needed. My "honey" has shown interest in this little "convertible" lap top, but also is concerned about the small hard drive. She found it easy to use, & didn't feel intimidated by it at all. She likes that she can use it as a tablet, & still install (some) of the computer programs that she likes using. She also likes that she can carry it along, & not take up so much room, unlike her other lap top. She can see everything clearly, & was zipping around the various screens in little time.

Excellent To Replace A Tablet Or For Travel

I have to admit when I selected this Acer Aspire laptop, I was allured by the variety of ways it could be used, but now that it's in my possession, I've found I only use it in two positions: typical notebook style and as a pad/tablet. In all honesty, I can't see using it in any other way, so in essence it's a little more than a glorified tablet, since there is no media drive for DVDs. I have a tablet that is 10 inches and with this being not only larger in size, but having laptop capability, it has rendered that tablet all but useless. Windows 8 took me a bit to get used to, and I'm still finding the screen with all the apps a bit daunting to look at, but the load time is incredibly fast. I could start this laptop three times over before my desktop PC could load once. I'm not a fan of the mandatory Windows account to log on, nor the missing Start button from the desktop screen, but if you ignore those things, Windows 8 functions pretty much like any of the previous versions. The only learning curve will come with how to manage the apps (deletion, size, adding them, etc.). I love the soft blue color of the laptop and the fact that it's textured and not smooth on the casing. There are two USB ports, one HDMI port, a headphone jack and one for networking. When fully charged, it claims it can last around 8 or 9 hours on a balanced power plan, however I haven't tested this as I mainly use it when it can be plugged in consistently. The sound quality of the speakers are amazing as it can get surprisingly loud, but the keyboard keys are very quiet, so you would not have to worry about waking anyone who is sleeping by typing. Overall, I'd recommend it to those who basically want a tablet with laptop capabilities.

Heavy for the size but flexible

To me it seems heavy for its size. I can't use this as a tablet that I hold in my hands due to the weight. But it's a nice portable size for a laptop and I like that I can also flip the keyboard underneath and use it as a stand for the touch screen monitor and sit it on my lap or on a table/desk. The hinges are good and tight so they should hold the screen at any angle well over time. Screen resolution ranges from 1024x768 to 1366x768. The actual screen size is 11.5 diag. while the physical frame is 14” diag., so there's a lot of wasted space around the screen. The specs are more like a tablet than a laptop, but it has enough power to run office and stream videos well, so that's enough for a good little mobile laptop. I just wish it allowed an SD card to expand the storage for media. It comes with one v3 and one v2 USB, a full size HDMI and headset ports all on the left side. The right has power and volume. The speakers are on the underside of the keyboard in front, so depending on which way you are folding the machine, the sound quality and volume vary. The touch pad has no buttons but the whole pad is a button. Just push on left side for left click, and right side for a right click. You can also just lightly tap to click and double click. Click and drag takes two fingers, one to hold/press on the side and one to drag. The touch screen is fast but sometimes doesn't respond to my quick taps. I already have my home theater PC on Win 8 using my Windows live login, so when I set myself up on this with the same login, it asked me if I wanted to copy the settings from that PC and I said yes. It copied my desktop images over to this but it also copied the Acer apps over to my HTPC! And If I collapse it down to tablet fold, the desktop image changes to an image that is not of my choosing. I'm not a fan of Windows 8 because it forces you to navigate between the dual modes to run certain applications or Windows settings. I look forward to upgrading this to Windows 10 soon because it resolves some (but not all) of those issues. Fortunately I won't be using this as an HTPC because Microsoft doesn't support Windows Media Center in Win 10, boo. I really like the flexibility of this laptop and it seems solidly build. I just wish it was lighter.

Beautiful and versatile laptop

The Acer Aspire R-11 laptop is a beautiful looking device. I was concerned when I first selected it whether or not it would have enough computing power for my school work and everyday PC usage and tablet application needs. So far, it has worked like a dream. It is only has 2 GB of memory, so that may need to be expanded later on. Otherwise, it offers a touch screen, full size keyboard (top buttons are small if you are a gamer...so you might have problems switching in between or hitting command buttons), has 32 GB internal storage and a Inter Celeron dual core processor. It is heavier than I thought it would be. Lightweight compared to my full size laptop, but when using it in tablet position, it can be bulky. Mind you, that doesn't stop me from using it to as a tablet to read or watch videos. I love that it has a full size keyboard and a touch screen. I love that it can be used in four different positions: notebook, display, tent, and pad. My kids and I like to set it up in the tent position and snuggle together when we are streaming movies or watching clips. I am concerned that the keyboard will eventually get damaged if I use it too much in the pad position since the keys are facing outward. The system is responsive. It comes with Windows 8.1. Setup was surprisingly easy. You can switch between a touch screen with applications running (you get to choose which apps you want) and a traditional desktop. Battery life is pretty good. Typically I get 5-6 hours of use out of a single charge...but perhaps that is because of the applications I have running or programs I am using. I love the blue color of the device. The shell of the laptop is matte with a texture to it. This is supposed to keep it from getting scratched up. The screen is bright, vivid, but can glare.

360 degree hinge, touchscreen and built-in video

I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to try out the following touchscreen laptop: Acer Sky Blue 11.6" Aspire R-11 R3-131T-C28S Laptop PC with Intel Celeron N3050 Dual-Core Processor, 2GB Memory, Touchscreen, 32GB Internal Storage and Windows 8.1 This is my very 1st laptop, however my teenage daughter has owned 2 previously, and I'm familiar with those; but I still prefer a desktop, especially since I'm a busy mom and time is very limited. I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with its 360* degree hinge. My wee ones seem to enjoy snapping off hinged things. The 360 hinge allows for several positions, but 4 main positions: standard 90 upright, the display position (which is the keyboard face-down with monitor facing out), the “tent” that looks like a triangle (which would be great for taking videos) and lastly, my favorite for my kids—folded all the way back with keyboard underneath, making it entirely touchscreen akin to a tablet device. Kids want to touch everything, so I really love that they'll be able to control the laptop with their hands, even before they learn to maneuver a mouse/pad. I think this will make for a smoother transition into them learning how to use all the functions of a computer, as they grow/learn more. The color of the laptop is a very pretty, soothing, cool blue. It's slightly textured, probably to help keep a grip on it. The keyboard is really nice. It has the traditional # pad combined in with some of the letter keys, which is cool but would take some getting used to. The keys are low profile but easy to type on, however my wrists have accidentally leaned on the mouse pad, which messed up what I was doing. That is annoying, but again, I'm not used to using a laptop regularly, so in time, I'm sure I'll learn to adjust to it and lift my hands more. I think this would be difficult if I were composing long papers for school/work. I think it would be more convenient if there was a slider to close off the mouse pad, during long sessions of typing. As far as the mouse pad goes, it works great. It took me awhile to realize that the right click was built-in to the bottom right corner of it; and vice versa, the left click is built-in to the bottom left corner. And to just click in general, you can depress the mouse pad itself. This is neat, but I wouldn't have known about the right and left clickers if I hadn't seen my sister-in-law use that function on her own laptop. There were no instructions about that, but I'm sure I could've done a quick online search to find out. But being that this is touchscreen, it's not completely necessary to use the mouse pad. I noticed when doing some online research, that some sites disable the touchscreen (moving the screen/page up/down) for the purpose of highlighting/copy/pasting. So while I was reading, I had to use the mouse pad to click and drag the up/down page-bar. I wasn't expecting this but I understand it. The speakers are pretty good and when you change the position of the laptop/hinge, the speakers automatically change to a more efficient speaker. The screen is nice and clear, and auto-rotates when you change positions. This is an awesome feature if you want to prop it up and take a video. The built-in video lens is great. I'm eager to set it up for Christmas morning, the kids' birthday parties, etc. I think that is my favorite feature about the laptop. The versatility of the positioning serves as a stabilizing tripod in the ways that it's solid, steady and you can leave it. I can see my kids using this often to make videos with their friends/family. (The height adjustments aren't present but that's okay with me!) I thought the lens would also take pictures, since it can take video, but it is lacking those capabilities as far as I know. Overall, I like the laptop, especially the kid-friendly 360 hinge, the touch-screen and video-taking features, but it's going to take me some time to adapt to using it regularly.

A Nifty & Portable Little Laptop!

I recently received the Acer Sky Blue 11.6" Aspire R-11 R3-131T-C28S Laptop PC and I love it so far! There are many pros to this device and few minuses. PROS: (1) It is on par with tablets, with the added blessing of a real keyboard! The touch screen is wonderful and really easy to use. When the physical keyboard is not needed, the screen folds all the way back, making it into a seamless tablet-style device. If a keyboard is needed while using it with the screen folded back, there is an easy icon in the taskbar to activate a keyboard on the screen. Very nice! (2) The laptop itself is very attractive - small, smooth, and a nice blue color. The screen is clear and the resolution is easy on the eyes. (3) The size makes it very portable and a great laptop for taking with you everywhere. (4) With the new Windows (whether you use 8 or 10), it's very easy to sync seamlessly across your devices - be it a Windows phone or a bigger, home-bound computer. (5) The price is great - you get a lot for what you pay for. CONS: (1) There isn't a lot of memory (32GB advertised) and much of that is already taken up by Windows and default programs. This isn't a lot of space for much more than checking email and browsing the web. If you are looking for a device to store a lot of pictures/videos/music, you will most likely need to invest in a cloud service (for example, Windows offers one that works in tandem with the laptop called OneDrive) or an external memory device/card. (2) There are 2GB of ram, which is plenty if you like to check email/browse the web, but I wouldn't trust this computer for intense video games or any programs that require a ton of computer power. That being said, it handles online videos like a pro - YouTube and Netflix work great! This is a great laptop for taking on the go and for executing simple tasks like surfing the web and checking email.

Good for a portable laptop to use away from home

I was asked to be part of a review of a few different laptops (my choice) that Walmart will carry, and originally had been asked to review Windows 8.1 and, when available for upgrade, the new Windows 10. Unfortunately, this computer did not have enough hard drive memory to download the Windows 10 update so we were just asked to review the laptop itself. Due to the timing of this review, instead of the item being sent via Federal Express to my home, it was shipped via Site-to-Store to my local Walmart. I was able to pick it up on the day specified. I had a chance to play with it a bit before the upload was to be released. It is a very small computer; it probably has a 10.5" to 11.5" screen (corner to corner). There are 2 USB ports, an HDMI port, and an ethernet port on the left side of the base of the computer (although it is wifi compatible). On the right side is the opening for the plug to recharge the battery, the power button, a blue light that shows you that the computer is on, and an orange light that shows you that the computer is plugged in/charging, On the other side of the orange light is a button that is a little longer than the on-off switch, that you can use to control the volume of the speakers. It has a built-in camera and microphone in the screen case. It is also a touch screen which although it was nice, you can't do everything with a touch screen that you can do using a mouse (not included) or the touchpad and buttons (buttons incorporated into the touchpad, left mouse button on the left of the screen and right to the right, under the touchpad itself). It takes videos as well as still pictures with the built-in camera. I am a professional medical transcriptionist, and the keyboard was very small and it was difficult for me to type on it - and I have small hands. There are also on-screen keyboards, two of which are split, and a one that looks like you would either write on it, no keys to type but lines and what looks like an icon of a pencil, but I haven't figured out how to use that yet. It doesn't come with a paper manual, just an on-line manual but I have not downloaded or looked at that yet. I haven't really tried to type on the on-screen keyboards yet just because I haven't figured out a good way to do it that I would be comfortable typing. The screen and base of the laptop rotate a full 360 degrees, so you can use it in many ways. You can fold the top (screen section) back so the outsides of the laptop are touching back-to-back and use it as a tablet; you can make it so the screen is facing you and the bottom part of the laptop is supporting it, in a tent-like fashion; or you can use it in the standard open laptop position. The battery life on a full charge is about 8 hours; that is, if you are not using the internet or downloading programs which uses up the battery power faster. It does come with the battery charger. There is no CD-ROM/DVD drive in this computer which if you don't download games from CDs, play DVDs to watch movies, or want to play CDs on it for music is fine, but it might be inconvenient to have to download all your games/movies/music onto the hard drive so you can listen to it on this laptop. It does have built-in speakers as well. There are 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of hard drive memory (but 12 GB of that was allocated to a special "restore" drive which is why Windows 10 Upgrade could not be loaded - it needs 30 GB of hard drive space for the upgrades). It was easy to get onto the internet with this; you can disconnect from the internet by tapping one of the function keys on the top row of the keyboard, and it will save your default internet wifi name/password and connect you automatically if you choose to. This computer was okay; as I said although I'm a small person with small hands, it seemed to me to be difficult to type on the tiny keyboard. It would definitely be for someone who is used to downloading everything they need from the internet and not using mice, or CD/DVD drives, etc. Very compact if you travel a lot, you can use this without needing to tote along a bunch of peripheral devices.

1. You remove all of the screws on the bottom and the cover snaps off, ther eis a rectangle metal plate that the memory is under, if you want the full 8 gigs you have to buy an 8 gig module as it is only one slot. It uses DDR3L memory.
by boiler76
2. DDR3L SDRAM laptop memory and the number of memory cards could be only one, or two. For 8GB, you could get one 8GB or two 4GB. Call Acer support to verify the specific type in this laptop already. Also, call the memory manufacturer to make sure the memory you look at is compatible with this laptop. Memory has to be compatible with chipset, low voltage, and other things. You will be able to find what you need, just have to do research and get the right kind.
by Anonymous817
3. There's no slot to put in a memory stick. I don't know why is states that it's expandable to 8 GB. It's best to order the computer with the specks you need.
by Oracat
4. Acer does not provide instructions on how to replace hardware on their units, however, you can visit our Acer Community (community.acer.com) and join discussions with product specialists and members just like you who are ready to guide you through the process of finding solutions to your issues or questions.
by TeamAcer
5. I would go directly to Acer and direct this question, as you know you'll get the correct information. It's very easy to take along, lightweight.
by bschank85
6. Here's and excellent video tutorial on replacing the memory module with an upgraded one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgjiVqQPiwY I've done this with a Dell. It's a quick and easier than most people think to upgrade laptop ram. Good luck!

1. You can only use a USB CD, DVD, or Blu Ray drive with this laptop.
by boiler76
2. Only if you have an external CD/DVD drive that connects via USB cable, and install a software application to play them like VLC, XBMC, GOM or KMPlayer.
by LongIslandLass
3. If you use external drives, you can. It doesn't have an optical drive.
by flrhcarr
4. No, this Laptop does not have a CD/DVD drive.
by CommunityAnswer
5. I set it up as a network to my other computer to save this recovery system image in a new partition on the other computer. Also, I network mapped the DVD drive on my other computer from this one. It is possible a CD or DVD on the other computer could be opened and viewed from this laptop. Otherwise, you need to connect a cable to this laptop and to a separate external DVD/CD drive. For music, this laptop networked to the Windows Media Players on my other computers and this has speakers.
by Anonymous817
6. It does not have a cd/dvd drive. You may want to contact Acer directly and ask about your options at hooking up an external one.
