Great gaming laptop, acer has done it again.


I have found that this is a great laptop as far as performance is concerned. As I am a gamer, and I do game designing, I constantly need a powerful computer, but being a student, I also need portability. I find that this laptop does what I want it to...

Fast ; Large Storage ; Number Pad ; Excellent Graphics ; Reliable

Short Battery Life ; Most USB ports on Right Hand Side ; Not robust enough for me

Great product!


Very fast startup from standby low-power state. Cold startup takes right under a minute with Windows 7. Screams through most any visual chore you can throw at it. GPU takes over nicely with settings you choose in NVIDIA's control panel. Seamless...

None other than maybe needing a lighted keyboard (as all laptops should in my opinion)

The first couple weeks were difficult because of learning the in's and out's of the laptop, but that is true of any computer. And I think I've addressed most of the ones I could think of here. *Windows 7 is an Acer branded version. I formatted and...

Clear screen ; Lightweight yet heavy duty build quality ; Large hard drive ; Good processor ; Great graphics card ; Number pad ; Runs very cool (barely gets hot, even when rendering HD video) ; FN button to turn off screen backlight instantly ; 4 USB...

FIXED: To save power, computer shuts off DVD drive, sometimes the drive won't come back on until restart. Could be fixed by uninstalling or disabling software ; FIXED: Headphones make constant clicking noise with included driver. To fix, go to device...

Nice Buy Except...


If it wasn't for the webcam I would keep this laptop, but sadly I will have to return it.

I really like the way this laptop looks and functions online and offline. The screen size is just right for what I need. It runs well

The webcam is nothing like I expected. The quality is bad and Acer doesn't have any drivers. The "camera control" tab is not accessible

Great Laptop


Easy to get smudges on cover like others say.

No issues so far. Nice and fast

Comes with some junk installed, easy enough to remove. AC connection seems a little loose, but no issues so far

Consumer review by:

Very good Laptop.


Bought it for a teenager ; Very thin and screen is wider than 16x9 laptops ; Nice Keyboard, most importantly it ran BlackOp's very nice ; Very little junk ware and they all uninstall via control panel ; Good all around laptop

Touch Pad is very sensitive, without even palm on touch area it start moving the mouse ; Screen is not as sharp and doesn't have enough viewing angles. Will have to adjust when you move your head position

EDIT: First Impression


Look at my previous review

Windows crashed once at startup ; EDIT: I mentioned that I am not entirely pleased with the GPU when I play SC2. I take that back, as I am pleased with it

Anybody said BANG FOR UR BUCK?!


I started comparing all possible laptops in $500-$700 bracket few weeks before Black Friday sale, and picked out a different Acer.... Specifically waited for B-F sale and this one just blew my mind. $599 shipped for all of this?! Insanity I thought to...

i3, 4Gb, 500GB, 420m ; Does work, plays games such as Star Craft 2, surfs web, uses little power, battery last plenty long, screen is large and bright, brushed metal finish inside is very good quality and pleases eye, multitouch pad feature is working...

Keyboard layout is a little different and takes a little getting used to. Same goes to touch pad, but you get used to both, since touch pad placement is aligned with the keyboard, not the center of the laptop. Top gets smudgy in a hurry, but hey......
