This computer is fantastic. It is quick, light, and mobile. I've only had it for about 2 weeks now, but have not been let down. Processing speeds are very quick; boots up from both hibernation and completely shutoff state very quickly. I don't run too many memory intese programs, Microsoft Office Suite and Quickbooks online run very quickly for me. Don't play any games on the computer either. I do watch Netflix and Hulu; both stream in HD and I've never had any hangups or had to wait for a movie/show to reload. The cons I have encountered are below. The speaker quality while watching a movie leaves a little to be desired. Not bad for a mobile unit, but definitely could be better for movies. If using headphones, then it's a non-issue. I feel like the battery life seems to go pretty quickly. As I was searching for laptops in my price range, it seems this was listed on the lower end of battery life; that is definitely true. I haven't found myself in any situations where I've needed to plug in yet, but I suppose I could see how that may be an issue in the future as battery life shortens. Build quiality seems pretty good and is the reason I gave it a 4 overall rating. Everything seems very well put together and feels nice, strong, and tight; The exception to this would be the keyboard for me. It hasn't acted up or done anything out of the ordinary, it just doesn't feel as solid as I would have liked. However, I have not read any other reviews from others complaining about the keyboard, so maybe that's just me being picky. Overall, this has been a great computer and I got it on a fantastic deal from WalMart. (I believe this unit is usually msrp around $650, I got it for $450 from WalMart). The entire ordering process was fantastic from start to finish, and WalMart was great to buy from. COmputer arrived 3 days after I ordered it and has worked fantastically since then. I would buy from both Acer and WalMart again!!
