This laptop is really nice
The quality of this laptop depends on what you plan to do with it. Looking for something for graphic design and intense gaming? This might not be the model for you. Netflix, online shopping, watching Youtube videos, photos, running Microsoft Office and Quickbooks? Yeah, this is for you. The sound is great but it seems like the speakers are poorly located. I don't understand why they would be on the underside of the laptop where they are going to automatically muffled. The cooling fan isn't noisy. So far I just the laptop while it was literally on my laptop and it hasn't overheated. Not having its own number pad on the keyboard is a bit awkward for me but I suppose that is personal preference. You just give that up when you get a narrower laptop. What you gain is lightweight, portability. I love that I can fit it into my purse and go, I don't need to Sherpa this thing around. Though the trade off there is that it is little on the flimsy/plasticky side, only the top shell is aluminum. I have a small ding in the top already. No, the keyboard is not backlit and I don't find it necessary. The biggest selling point is the quality of screen. The quality of the display is outstanding. I'd rather watch Netflix on this than my TV. There isn't too much in the way of preinstalled bloatware. I didn't have to wait days for Windows 10 to update. All in all, I'd say this one is a winner.ShelleyBelly
The Acer Aspire notebook is light, powerful, and the screen is surprisingly large. It fully charged in just a couple of hours, with about an 8 hour run time listed. After a somewhat lengthy Windows 10 set up, I started playing music. It was surprisingly good! I mean, it's not a high fidelity stereo...but really good sound from such small speakers! It is very fast, and everything is crystal clear...HD sight and sound. I also played my son's games with no problems at all. And, for me, there's Word, PowerPoint and Excel. I am really happy with this notebook and would recommend it to anyone.audchild
I received the Acer Aspire laptop for free as part of the Sparks reviewer program in exchange for my honest review. Acer has always been a name we trust in my household. Growing up we used Acer computers in my school and I personally have owned an Acer. When the laptop came available I knew I needed to jump on it. It's lightweight with a sleek modern look. It has a 14" full high definition screen, 8GB. Windows 10 comes pre-installed which is great! Upon opening and starting up Cortana is there to walk you through the process of getting your laptop set up and ready to use. I found this to be very helpful as it can sometimes be a stressful process. Everything has ran beautifully so far and it's definitely a product I can recommend.Luna593
