Nice "ultrabook"


15.6" should have 1920x1080 res to look good.. but that's not a big deal for my usage

none, but I wasn't able to test battery life

Great laptop for a great price.


The Acer is a great buy with all the features offered by other brands--for less! It has the latest technology and is very user-friendly. I highly recommend it for home and office use!

Nice laptop until the case cracks under normal use
