I found the same ultrabook at Cost co but with 12gb of ram 1tb hdd and an i7 for 599$ and I was bummed but that's not really anything bad I guess

Everything about this ultrabook is great. Touch screen to specs inside. I use it as a gaming laptop and it handles everything I throw at it. It says the processor is clocked at 1.6 but its dual core is clocked at 2.6 and you wont really notice a drop...

there is only one con. windows 8 8.1 is ok with the start button but windows 7 is better and that is why I gave it a 4 out of 5

Not bad


Ordered 'recertified' for $399. Updated OS to 8.1. Acer drivers for 8.1 worked, although I had to install updated Intel ProSet for bluetooth driver a couple times to get it to work. BT is turned off by default. Look in manual. Keyboard lights up by...

Boots fast, runs quiet, seems well built for the price point

Wonderful, except for one thing...


If this did not have windows 8, it'd probably be a perfect laptop. The speakers are acceptable on a laptop (spoiled by my desktop, I know), but really, the only thing that makes me HATE this device is windows 8. Actually, if it just was possible to do...

Touch screen shinies! The touch screen is beautiful and fluid. The display is also great. The keyboard is easy to use, but the num lock is a little odd (turns off all the time). Backlit keyboard makes it easy to use in the dark

Windows 8: everything about windows 8 is just bad. It's clunky and demands that you use a microsoft account in order to get a lot of things done. Did I mention it's clunky? Why do most of the built in apps automatically assume full screen and make it...

The computer did start up and I was loving the backlit keyboard. One minute later, the screen dimmed and the battery light started to flash. 30 seconds later I lost the power. I'm getting a replacement sent. I'll update review when I receive it

Wish the machine would start

Perfect for my needs


I like the color and size of this machine. I'm not a fan of touch screen laptops, or Windows 8, but this laptop handles both very well. I miss the dvd/cd rom, but with everything being digital, it's turning out not to be a big deal. I definitely...

Good performance, great speakers

No dvd rom, Windows 8, not a fan of the touch screen

I bought this laptop about a month ago and I love it. It has lots of Hd storage and great sound. One downfall is when typing I sometimes hit the screen and end up typing somewhere else.This product is... Good sound quality, Perfect for Business, A nice...

Great computer for the price.


This laptop is a great buy for the price and the convenience of a light weight computer. Performance great as well. Difficult learning touch screen applications of windows 8.1, but that is only because I have had many years of using a mouse!This...
