Disadvantages: Battery Life, Hard drive space
I recently had this laptop given to me for christmas from my parents and have to say it meets all the expectations I had of it. I have been using Acer laptops for around five years now and have never looked back. I have found all their products well made, reliable and easy to use and this one is no exception. Boasting a 15.6 inch LCD screen means that watching movies or playing games has never been more fun. With a powerful 2.00 ghz dual core processor under the hood means you can surf the internet, watch your favourite videos and edit documents at the same time without compromising on speed or performance. It has a generous 500GB hard drive with lots of room for films and music. With built in wifi capabilities, touch pad mouse and weighing in at just under 3kg, I have found this laptop is perfect for me to take to work and university. The only downfalls with the product are the battery life (around 2 and half hours if you are lucky) and the fact that you never get the exact amount of hard drive space advertised, came with 500gb advertised but when the system settings were checked i discovered that it only had a total of 460 gb. Although this seems to happen with almost every product I have bought that has internal memory included and isn't just restricted to Acer products.
Summary: Good, reliable laptop, best I have owned so far
