Alistair, Chelmsford Music, gaming or video fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
High quality screen, Big screen. Fingerprint recognition. Good design. 5.1 surround sound. Overall high quality feel
Bad points:
Lack of aesthetic features. e.g. backlit keyboard and Acer badge.
Speakers are a bit tinny, need to be louder and higher quality.
Battery life when doing anything other than writing.
Setting Acer password is a pain.
Charge time is slow
No BLu-Ray writer.
Hard drive is a bit small.
Boot up time is a bit slow
Back up to DVD button useless. Back up to hard drive button would be far more useful.
Needs USB 3 integration
It is a bit back heavy, I.e, tips when screen is pushed back and laptop tilted slightly

Peter, Douglas General home user

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
top of the range machine
Bad points:
I would not buy this again. It comes with too much unwanted preloaded software. Most of this can be removed with Windows but the preloaded MyWinLocker software is not possible to remove and runs all the time in the background.
It does not come withe a Windows 7 disc and drivers disc so the laptop can be reloaded as a clean machine.
