QUICK REVIEW:Everything is wonderful except for the horrible horrible speakers... If u like the price, size, Manufacturing and color, than this is a awesome notebook if u can afford to use headphones or buy some external speakers. 3 stars doesnt mean its bad, I just figured for $400 the notebook would have at least average speakers. Semi Full Review:
Well everything is fast and the screen is good, the webcam is good enough, keyboard feels good.. The touchpad is wonderful and the scroll slide on the right feels amazing. The Ram is easy to upgrade. I bought two 4GB chips from Crucial.com and when I installed them I was suprized to find only one 4gb chip already inside instead of two 2gb chips. So maybe u can buy just one 4gb chip of the right type. But I am not PC guru and I am not sure about that so look into it before u do it if u want to upgrade the ram.. But anyways, everything is nice and decent fast also the light purple color and designs on the machine are nice and its over all a sexy looking notebook. ABOUT THE SPEAKERS: The speakers on the one I have, are the absolute worst speakers I've ever heard... They are tinny, crackly and quiet. SO SO SO cheap.. I think the mono speaker on my cheap cell phone is louder and clearer than these things are.. So if u plan on getting this notebook, understand that these speakers are garbage and you will need to use Headphones or external speakers if u want to enjoy any kind of movie, music or voice chatting. Oh and I have been told that the microphone works well. I would recommend something like the Logitech z205 speakers if u want portability and decent sound.. I love Acer products, their pc's are semi fragile but if u treat em good they will last as long as u need. and they are fast inside.. So Deffly a fan of Acer stuff. I have had 2 acer notebooks, 1 desktop, and 2 tablets. They all work wonderfully. Minus the speakers in most cases. Anyways this is my few words about this notebook. Oh and the battery is normal for cheaper notebooks. it'll last 2-4 hours on basic web browsing etc.
