Score 8.0/10
Good points:
i bought the acer for my uni work. it looks good, has a great size screen. not too heavy. fast and good for work but also excellent for films and catch up tv. A quality product, and refurbished is a great way to get a bargain! very pleased with it.
Bad points:
wish the battery lasted a little longer. However, I have been very careful with it and can get a good 2hours plus. perhaps i am expecting too much for my money!

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
The design looked good.
Bad points:
The laptop had a scratch on it but the main problem was that it kept on shutting down. It had a critical history of shutdowns which was a problem with it's memory and would not allow any downloads. I exchanged it and bought a new laptop. In all honesty I wouldn't trust a second hand/refurbished one again.
