Best Buy Customer Reviews

For the price, this laptop can't beaten. If I had to give it a con, it would be the mechanical hard drive speed. It comes with a 5400 rpm hard drive, as do most laptops under $1,000. It is still fast for the price. I installed a 240GB solid state drive and it boots to the desktop in 5 seconds. All of the drivers work great without error. I transferred my Windows 10 Pro key over and use it for work and play! After I max the RAM out, I will have a monster of a laptop. It is my second Acer laptop but not my last.

The laptop feels great and is a definite improvement over the previous laptop used. Though with Windows 10 and the Skylake CPU, I will be cloning the Windows partition and replacing the abysmally slow HDD with a smaller capacity SSD. There really is o reason for mobile PCs not to all come with SSDs these days. HDDs should be the realm of mass storage and surveillance systems only.
Pros: Great internals for the price. large screen, great visuals, and pretty lightweight compared to the Sandy Bridge-based DELL I'm replacing.
Cons: Touchpad mouse is very, very sensitive, considering there are no discrete left and right mouse buttons. The 1TB HDD offerts most of the reaction and quick-boot features of the newer OS and CPU, which is a major turnoff. Will end up -needing- to buy an additional SSD to get the real next-generation experience (waste of component potential)
At the end of the day, you get what you pay for, but I suppose buying a $120 SSD instead of spending an additional $250 for the SSD-inclusive (like-capacity) version of this laptop is a win, too.
What really irked me was that the "N" key on the keyboard squeaks and depresses with resistance (sometimes doesn't even actuate). Will be heading to my local Best Buy for answers. No reason why a key on a brand new laptop should arrive with problems.

This is a very nice computer for under $400. Plus for like $20 you can get a ram 4 gig chip and upgrade it to 8 gig. I am very impressed with it.

Good for its price.
Posted by: Dain from: on
This laptop is very standard, it doesn't have anything special that catches the eye, not one particular thing is all that impressive, but it comes together and works well. Its good for just a regular person who needs a work laptop.

Very happy with my Acer! Such a good price when I went to purchase at the store-there wasn't one available across the state! I5 for the price of an I3! Very happy customer here-quick boot up and came with free WebRoot disc (50.00 value)

An Ace of a Computer
Posted by: Michael from: on
Another Ace Computer by Acer. I have been using computers since 1977 and I have been with Acer since Acer began. I've tried other computers but Acer computer hardware holds up better than the others. However, I still prefer Windows 7 OS. There are many things about the Windows 10 OS that I don't like a some things I hate. Still, the Acer computer hardware itself is excellent.

Ok laptop for a beginner only!
Posted by: PDubs from: on
Again this is an ok laptop. It has a nice processor, speakers, screen resolution, and RAM; however, if you're interested in upgrading this in any way (i.e. adding RAM or a SSD) do NOT get this computer. The back is one piece and very difficult to remove without damaging the case. Also, the battery is internal so no removing that either. I would only recommend this PC to someone not interested in upgrading.

Nice notebook for everyday use.
Posted by: Alhacker from: on
I choose this notebook for i5 Core processor.It's low on memory , I'Il look forward to install more .But this one has a trick : you have to do a lot
work to disassemble ,there is not one screw cover for a battery or hard drive. It's minus ,that it share memory with graphic.
Hard drive is huge but slow, not ssd.
