This small size PC is inexpensive . . . easy to carry around . . . easy to type on . . . has Windows 7 installed . . . and so I bought one instead of a tablet. At first I was disappointed in that certain tasks performed quite badly. This, condition of slow performance is easy to fix through adding more memory. (Note that I purchased a stick of 4 GB of DDR SDRAM from Newegg for under $20). With more memory, the Acer runs windows as it should. As another bonus, this machine is eligible for the Windows 8 upgrade, so I elected the online upgrade to Windows 8 for an additional cost of only $15. The only other gotcha (other than the memory being too small to run Windows on) is that the touchpad on the keyboard seems a bit too sensitive. This problem can be resolved by a download of Touch Freeze (free software).
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS LAPTOP COMPUTER. MET ALL MY EXPECTATIONS AND MORE!!
I purchased this netbook for my son, a High School freshman. He is very pleased with his new netbook. It connected easily to both our in home and school wireless networks and has sufficient power and memory to do all those tasks important of homework and socializing. I did get rid of the pre-installed NORTON and MS Office garbage and replace it with a free version of AVG (grisoft.com) and Open Office (no cost for either).
Minimal software and no hard copy instructions with this refurbished ACER. Would not download even the first piece of software...WINDOWS 7. Either software or hard drive was corrupted according to error message. Returned to store the next day and bought a brand new DELL.
The DELL works fine.
This is the first time I have purchased a computer online. The computer is in good shape and works well. But I didn't realize how small it was going to be. It is very small in size like a notebook. I also woud have never purchased this item had I known that it doesn't come with a CD-ROM. There is no place to put CD's in at all. I of course recieved this while on vacation and wasn't able to return it or I would have.
The computer does come with Microsoft Word and Excel STARTER 2010, so its not the full programs but at least there is Word on the computer already even if its not a complete version.
Other than the size and the fact that it doesn't come with a CD-ROM it is a pretty good computer.
I love this laptop!
I bought it for our youngest daughter and, now, I'm thinking of buying one for myself!
It's small and compact, yet not too small and compact.
Playback of streaming video is quite good, actually. We have had only a couple of slight hiccups with streaming video while using multiple background tabs on the browser.
The only reason I rated it Good, and not Excellent is that the technician who refurbished it left fingerprints all over the case. However, they came right off with a monitor cleaning wipe.
Also, it gets a little warm on the underside while using it in your lap. But, hey, that's to be expected while trying to use a laptop as a "lap" top.
I got this when it was NEW it worked poorly and on it said there was a turbo well then without the turbo theres no telling how that will be. Its just a bad computer i brother has the 14" and it is good. so i was expecting a good computer. i was shocked to see this performance on this. i expected alot more form acer
The laptop worked for 2 days after unpacking and then malfunctioned. I contacted Tech support site after registering the product and was told it is not under warranty and to get a fix would cost $38.00.
I am in the process of e-mailing warranty support and if not satisfied will have to drive the 2 hours to return it to Walmart in Colville Wa.
I am disappointed and return it. Tales a whole minute to load google.com news. Very slow compared to my ipad2. How can they sell such a slow pc even the price is cheap.
I;haven't been able to use this product becouse of lack of performance (it doesn't allow to enter to any secure site in the internet(Bank,Hotmail,sears,etc.) whithout the oportunity to enter my inbox in hotmail is like not having a computer at all.
Computer crashed on me. Maybe a fluke but lost all credibility in my mind.
This is a notebook, not a laptop. It doesn't have storage capability other than what is built in. Purchased as a gift for my computer savy husband who could list all the problems with the notebook.
I got this for my daughter for Christmas and so far so good. It is small enough for her to carry and handle, yet still big enough to watch videos on. It doesn't have a disc drive which I didn't think would be a big deal until I needed to use a disc for her new mp3. But no biggie you can download pretty much anything now a days! For the price you cant beat this deal. Wish I bought another one for my son too.
Much better than the netbook carnival balloons. I purchased that one and immediately got back on line to order this one. This one has the Windows 7 instead of starter, is faster online and a little larger. Love It for my use.
This little jewel is great if you want a good computer to connect to the web with to do light business tasks, watch videos, check social sites, things like that. I didn't give it excellent marks (except on value) because someone may think it's going to be as good as their home desktop for heavy computing, it's not. As long as you don't expect too much from it you'll be as happy with it as I am with mine. Actually, now that I think about it, I do give it an excellent for "meeting expectations", because it as good as I expected, no more, no less.
dont waste your money on this. spend a little more and get something different
I liked the color and the size but, wasn't fast enough to stream videos.
The people at the store were great as usual!!
I have had this laptop for two weeks and it is wonderful. It is exactly what i need for the internet and school work
