Within a half hour of getting this home, I plugged it in, set up Windows, dumped McAfee and a ton of other bloatware with PC Decrapifier, installed MSE and Adobe Reader, connected to the home network, and this is ready for my daughter's present. Runs awesomely. We bought a similar model (still Acer, still core i3, still a 5733, just a different suffix and has a 320GB drive not 500GB) from OfficeMax last year for $549. This computer is just like that one. My personal laptop is an older Extensa 5230 and I've upgraded it quite a bit but it's not quite as nice as this (then again I paid $249 for mine and have spent $80 on it in 2 years in CPU/memory swaps). I'm very impressed and except for the skinny tab key, I'd recommend this to ANYONE needing a speedy laptop for under $400!
