Almost as Good as the SurfaceMarch 26, 2017
This device is great. The only difference I can notice between it and a Surface is the screen resolution. However, it is not bad. Definitely happy with this purchase and since it is about half the price of a Surface, you cannot go wrong!

Great little laplet!May 26, 2017
Powerful enough to get the job (and a little gaming) done on the go, light and thin enough to get there easily. I love how versatile this type of product is. I can read comics and sketch around on it one minute, then slap the keyboard on to grab my daily achievements in Guild Wars 2 and complete a project proposal the next. My only reason for keeping one star off this review is the battery life. I can get a fair amount done on one charge, but more time is of course always better. This would be less of a problem if the cables used to charge this product weren't so gangly, but it is something I can work with. Be sure to acquire all your operating system and driver updates immediately, as there are some vital ones you'll need to have your machine running smoothly right out of the gate. And ditch that bloatware!

Good computer, no supportSeptember 17, 2017
Computer was great for about 9 months and then a screen crack did it in. When I called Acer, they said they no longer support this machine (even though they are still selling it) in regards to physical damage. Such a let down from this company.

We can certainly provide service for the system but it will be at the repair fee for your model. If you would like Acer to repair your laptop please fill out this form so that we can assist you:
Wonderful televisionMarch 26, 2017
I bought the television for the smart tv capabilities, and for its size. The price was exactly where I would want it to be and it also comes with UHD. Would highly recommend this tv to anyone.
