Those that are looking for a powerful laptop should look elsewhere. This is a large netbook which is great for taking to school or using on the road without lugging around a 15-17" laptop. The battery does not quite last as long as stated in the specs, but I get about 6 hours out of it. If you want portability, this is a great little addition. As the price suggests, this is a budget netbook. It functions well, for basic internet and MS Office applications, but is not meant for video rendering or high end gaming. If you're working within a budget and do not need a high end system, then this will work great. Acer does preload a bunch of "bloatware" which is pretty common these days. All you have to do is use Windows 7 to make a backup and an image file, then start uninstalling the "bloatware". This is not difficult and should be done whether you buy from Acer, Gateway, Dell or whomever. Once you're done, you'll have a cleaner system that runs quite well. Overall, this is a very nice netbook and one cannot beat the price.
