Good points:
Bright screen.
Good speakers.
Nice feel to the keys.
Bad points:
1) Pre-loaded software: Its the old chestnut about pre-loaded software which has a free introductory period & then needs paying for.
a) Anti-virus software. I already have an account with AVG for other machines & would have preferred to extend this to my new laptop. However, when I tried to load it there was a conflict the preloaded software. Now the two are competing & you need a degree in software management to uninstall one of them & start again. Its a real mess. Don't pre-install anti-virus software, just provide links for customers to access providers if they choose to.
b) The same applies to the pre-installed 'Office' software. You've taken away the option of using a version I already have. Don't do it. Its so annoying. Especially as your sales material gives the impression that there is no charge for it.
2) Extra sensitive: Maybe this can be dealt with in the 'settings' but the 'mouse-pad' seems extremely sensitive to the point where it is difficult to carry out intricate movements of the cursor.


Over-sensitivity of keys

Good points:
Excellent start up speed and general operating speed is also really good...a definite step up from Vista. This is my 2nd Acer laptop and have to say the quality is always very good. Has a good sized and clear screen...graphic quality is superb as is the sound.

Overall a superb piece of kit.

Good points:
This laptop is versatile in that it's so convenient and practical and is so much better than sitting at the desk of a regular desktop PC.

Battery life is approximately 4 hours with regular use, so consider this to be very good indeed. When battery is running low, I just plus in charger and carry on using it.

Windows 7 takes a bit of getting used to, but do not find it a problem.

Very impressed with the bright LED screen, this really makes a difference. The webcam is very useful and handy being built in to the machine.

I carried out a fair bit of research for a good laptop and Acer seemed to come up trumps on the majority of reviews.

I am very impressed and chuffed with this machine and pleased that I made the decision to buy it.
Bad points:
I can't really comment on any bad points, as I don't think there are to be honest.

Good points:
A great laptop if you need a large screen. It also has a nice keyboard - was a bit worried by the flat keys but actually get on with these quite well. Overall, a well priced large screen laptop.
Bad points:
Unfortunately it really does not have a great battery life - I can only get about 2 hours out of it but as long as you are able to easily connect to the mains then this is not a problem. It's a bit slow to start up when you turn it on but then no issues.
