    Broke. Can't get Acer to fix it despite warranty.

    That low price comes at the cost of reliability. Mine broke after a few months and I've spent dozens of hours trying to get Acer to honor their warranty. After repeatedly talking to their support, sending it in to them for weeks, and getting it back with a note that it was fixed... it isn't. And the notes from the tech that was supposed to repair it indicate that he never understood what was broken.

    This is my first gaming laptop that I chose to get for its affordable price. I like to play MMOs, especially ESO and the game runs so smoothly I would have thought I was playing on my boyfriend's custom built desktop. Definitely worth it.
