I purchased this computer for my daughters as a Christmas present, so they would have something in their room to stream Netflix, so the adults could occasionally have a T.V. to themselves, however, I am sad to say that, so far, it does a terrible job streaming. It isn't limited to Netflix, either, as I have also encountered similar problems with HBO GO. I have a laptop, wii, and xbox 360 and none of them have given me a problem like this. I have tried several solutions offered on forums to no avail. I also purchased a dualband Netgear N600 wifi adapter and get good internet connection. I don't know if it is a result of the processor speed or what, which turns out to be a measly 1.65 GHz, because it plays dvd's and surfs the web relatively fast. I had purchased the Emachines bundle initially, but swiped it after I saw the Acer at the same price, with a bigger monitor. Neither had the processor speeds on the box, but as it turns out the Emachines is much faster at 3.2 GHz. I am seriously regretting this purchase.
