Edward, West Lancashire General home user

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Cannot rate many of the features as I have only had the machine a short time.
Very good for general use and I especially like the keyboard and layout.
Wireless operation is excellent.
Machine has an HDMI slot which is very useful.
Display is excellent.
Bad points:
USB slots are very poorly positioned and if you are right handed and use a USB mouse you will find it a bit of a nuisance.
Note - If you want to play top end games then DO NOT buy this machine as you will be disappointed.
This is NOT a gaming machine although to be fair it is not advertised as such.

Martin, Dorchester Music, gaming or video fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very good battery life.
Brilliant crystal clear screen.
Having numeric keys on the right make data input much faster.
Would not hesitate to recommend this to friends & family. My Dad will be buying one for himself shortly.
Bad points:
Remember this model only has one speaker. Not a problem if you attach external speakers.

Mike, Sheffield General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Everything, especially speed and screen quality.
Bad points:
Only slight downside is the trackpad is centralsied to main key board, not full alpha/number keyboard width, so can become a little cramped for both hands to use.

Joseph , Stirling General home user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Faster processor..i3 , Good Size Memory and especially Mega HDD!
Bad points:
Battery life as in ,most ACER's is "Poor"
Should really have 1 year Virus protection included, as manufacturers can bulk buy them
for pennies vs us punters who have to pay way too much and many other same/similar deals
usually include this.
